South Bay Chair
“Johanna Lyman is the founder and CEO of NextGen Orgs, a company devoted to making all organizations great places to work. She is a dynamic, energetic, Leadership and Business Development Coach, and Six Sigma Lean Professional (Green Belt) with impressive experience in implementing organization wide change strategies for both Fortune 500 companies and entrepreneurs. She is adept in combining coaching, training, and project leadership skills to help clients build dynamic, sustainable revenue growth while creating deep meaning with their work.
Johanna has an “impossible mission” to see world peace before she dies. She believes what Gandhi first said: to have peace in the world, we must first have peace in our hearts. And she knows from the first hand experience that led her to this work that we can’t have peace in our hearts if we’re miserable at work. In her spare time, Johanna is an avid hiker and paddler, a poet with a penchant for slam, wife to the best husband on the planet, and mom to a remarkable young woman who’s currently finding her way through the jungle of college.”
