“Seeing Purple”: How to Be the Change You Want to See in Advocacy, Work and Life
After last year’s divisive and difficult election cycle, many people are looking for ways to communicate, collaborate and problem solve with more respect and understanding. During this program, Seeing Purple Founder Lisa Gruenloh will share powerful tips to be a more effective advocate for change and to create healthy and productive relationships in your professional or personal life.
As the No Labels Citizen Leader for Florida’s 19th Congressional District, Lisa also will share how attendees can encourage our elected officials to work together productively across the aisle to solve our nation’s most pressing challenges.
“We really need each and every American to step up and take personal responsibility for the culture we are creating in our country and in our communities – including our social media communities where we have seen so much judgment, intolerance and hate,” Gruenloh said. “It’s time for each us to be the change we want to see and hold our each other and our elected officials to higher standards of civility.”
Lisa Gruenloh, MA, ACC is a consultant, trainer and coach who is passionate about helping organizations and individuals affect positive change through productive engagement.

Lisa is also a Citizen Leader for No Labels, a Washington, DC-based organization bringing elected officials from all political parties together for collaborative, productive problem solving.
Lisa holds a master’s degree in public communication from American University in Washington, DC, where she served as director of communications and spokesperson to leaders in the U.S. Senate, U.S. House and a federal agency during the 90s.
