Liysa Callsen speaker, coach, and comedian grew up with Deaf parents and her husband is Deaf too. It’s like she’s collecting Deaf people. Liysa can hear, however, American Sign Language is her first language. As a bicultural and bilingual individual she developed transformational ways of communicating for those who want to be heard. Communication is key in any language. By the way - while talking to a Deaf person, there is no need to raise your voice. It won’t help them hear you better. Seriously, it distorts your face. Don’t do it.

​Drawing on life experiences, Liysa uses stories, improvisation, audience participation, and tips to help give you a fresh perspective on your obstacles. She will teach you to use humor in life and in business, help you embrace diversity to form stronger teams, and teach you the art of communicating beyond words.

Liysa trained with Second City Chicago and has turned her passion for business and humor into workshops, speaking engagements, and writings.

quote I enjoyed your presentation and I could see that the students were taking in the experience as well. You brought a great message of teamwork and communication that is needed by business and industry and what better way than to share that message with them as they embark on their job search. It will set them up for success!

quote Liysa provided tools that were essential to workplace and life communication, and they were immediately and easily applicable. The “yes and” method was practical and fun. By utilizing what I've learned from Liysa, I see opportunities as they are (rather than as obstacles). I thought I was naturally a “yes and” person – this made me see I can improve tremendously!

quote Liysa Callsen is a wonderful coach and I would highly recommend her. If you are looking for someone to help you reach that next level she's your woman. She takes time to get to know you, to find out your hopes and dreams. She'll push you and really make you think about what you want out of life. I was encouraged and inspired by Liysa. She has such a fun laid back approach to serious topics which makes the whole experience that much better. Thank you again Liysa for helping me become a better me!
