Based out of New York, Fast Forward Group was co-founded in 2013 by Lisa McCarthy and Wendy Leshgold. Childhood friends Lisa and Wendy spent decades in corporate America where they experienced firsthand the toll of the always-on, high-pressure workplaces where people feel professional success requires personal sacrifice. They founded Fast Forward Group to challenge this belief and to transform workplaces, one person at a time.
They created a simple, actionable system for people to define “extraordinary success” one year from today and adopt the habits, tools, and mindset to make it happen. Since founding Fast Forward, Wendy and Lisa have built a team of facilitators, coaches, and engagement managers who have trained more than 100,000 people around the globe.
