Elizabeth Silberg believes if you have a better balance, you achieve a healthier whole — that is, the best version of yourself. Then again, if you don’t go too far, it will be hard to find your limits. So she always takes on a challenge that offers an opportunity to help her be a better person.
Elizabeth is a Director of Digital Product Management and Transformation at IBM, and before that, held roles ranging from the most established areas of the business to the most nascent. This includes transforming IBM to a new way of working, identifying and validating new ideas for Smarter Cities products, driving Agile transformation and managing common services in the Rational brand, developing cross-brand tooling within IBM’s Systems and Technology Group and building IBM’s strategy in Software. Through these roles and patent submissions, she discovered her penchant for fixing things through integration, efficiency and empowerment — building organizational capability and self-directed teams through trust, empowerment and support, as well as connecting dots, systems and people into cohesive, stronger units.
She is the Finance Chair and Treasurer on the Board of Directors for Saturday Academy and also volunteers with various other education, empowerment and environmental organizations. She likes to experiment with different training for mind, body and well-being, so you might also find her on the stage, in the gym or out with nature.
Elizabeth served on OEC’s Emerging Leaders Board from 2016-2019.
