About Us

Lisa Duerre | CEO, Executive Coach & Facilitator

As one of a handful of female executives in a Silicon Valley technology company, I led a top-performing team known for providing best-in-class services and solutions for our employees and customers. I’ve spent a majority of my career coaching and developing senior leaders to achieve their career and business goals. 


In my most recent corporate position I was the Senior Director of Marketing for Customer Support Programs & Internal Technical Development programs at Synopsys, During my 20-year time at Synopsys, I built and led world-class training programs and events that connected over 10,000 customers and increased the skills of over 2,000 engineers annually. My cross-functional career achievements also include rolling out successful IT implementations, managing $10mm events, leading merger & acquisition HR projects, and coaching executives.


I formed RLD Group to answer a calling to be of service and share the tools and techniques I’ve used personally to transform my career and life. I thoroughly enjoy leveraging my experience and expertise as a coach and consultant to RLD Group clients.


I am a proud Spartan with a BSBA in Human Resources Management from San Jose State University.  


Among the awards and accolades I received during my tenure at Synopsys, I'm most proud of being consistently rated by the executive team in the top 10% of performers, and earning exceptional employee retention/managerial approval rating scores year after year.

I live in San Jose, CA with  my husband and daughter.
