Lisa Sheard shares some of her secrets to success with Bring Change Lowveld

Lisa Sheard is the Executive Director of Tourism at Kruger Lowveld Chamber of Business and Tourism. Her early years were spent working as an economist in the corporate sector after which she moved into the tourism space.

Now after over 20 years in the tourism industry, she wears a couple of other hats too, including being an owner at Misty Mountain Lodge, Long Tom Pass and tourism consultant.

She is passionate about tourism development and travel. She watches cricket and reads for relaxation.

Thoughts from Lizelle:

I found Lisa a very interesting Lady. She is Independent, strong, knowledgeable and just over-all an amazing woman. She is down to earth but also very straight forward. She speaks her mind and accept people for who they are, but she expects the same from them in return. It was a privilege to spend time with her!

Lisa’s Advice:

1. CORE RELATIONSHIPS:

If you are happy at home, happiness will follow you everywhere else. Work hard at your core relationships, being your spouse, children, and direct family and closest friends.

Make them work! They are your soundboard.

This is a pre-condition in Lisa’s life; the key to your inner well-being. These are also the people that moulds you and make you stronger. Help you to take risks.

2. BE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN SKIN:

  • Know who you are!
  • Know who your anchors are.
  • Have a wide circle of associations and connections.
  • Build a network around you in Business
  • Relationships should be mutual. GIVE and TAKE.

3. BE STRONG:

  • You cannot be weak and take things personal in Business.
  • You deal with a lot of different personalities in your professional life. Not all of them will like you!
  • Be strong; assess, and get on with it!

4. MANAGEMENT STYLE:

  • Know your staff
  • Know who they are and where they live.
  • What makes them tick?

5. RESPECT IS EARNED:

I don’t have unquestioned admiration for people in high positions. They also, need to earn respect.

6. YOU HAVE TO FIND YOUR WINGS:

  • Be resilient
  • Know who you are, and be proud!
  • Spread your wings. Be somebody. Be financially independent.
  • I you fall. You get back up and try again!

7. UNDERSTAND RISK:

Your life is determined by your experiences, you are a product of your experiences. Life moulds you!

8. RECOGNISE THE KEY PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE:

  • Don’t take things personal.
