Lisa Hilleren, professional trainer and author, uses her writing talents to empower women to achieve their personal transformation goals. After witnessing the hugely positive results that business leaders gained from her emotional intelligence educational programs and classes, she asked herself, “Why not use what I know to improve my own personal life?”
Fast-forward fifteen years and her debut novel, Reconstructing Eve, has received 5-star raves from reviewers and heartfelt testimonials from readers, and inspired the creation of ReconstructingEve.com - the premier gathering place for women to meet and support one another on their self-discovery journeys.
Why choose fiction as a learning tool? As a trainer, Lisa knows the power of storytelling in the learning process. However, she also understands adult learners’ attention spans average about twenty minutes. A book can hold a reader’s attention for hours. “The emotional attachment to the heroine parallels what individuals experience when they use visualization techniques to work through challenges or explore ideas and dreams,” Lisa explains. “In bonding with my heroine, the reader experiences my character’s emotions as if they were her own. In doing so, she too is transformed--either by a new perspective or by following the story’s call to action after she closes the book.”
