Customer Reviews and Testimonials:
When someone was promoted above me, I was ready to quit. But Lauren helped me realize that I didn't want their job! I wanted to be moving in an entirely new direction. With Lauren's guidance, I defined a new role for myself, and proposed it to my bosses. I focused on the benefits this new role would give the company. Now I'm actually doing that job, on my terms, and my transition is viewed as a success to everyone at the company! I'm so happy I stayed. It worked out better than I could have imagined.

Working with Lauren has allowed me to move past the fear that was keeping me from being my authentic self and preventing me from moving my career in the direction I wished it to go. Lauren helped me to clarify my short and long term goals and to identify the steps to reach these goals. Throughout the process, she has held me accountable for each of the actions I identified as being important, provided me with much encouragement, and helped me see that I am capable when I have doubted my knowledge and abilities. In addition to her coaching skills and knowledge, I have benefited from her tremendous amount of business expertise. She truly understands the "full picture" and as a result, I have been able to take concrete steps to provide my clients with an additional set of services to manage change in their organizations. I cannot recommend Lauren highly enough and would encourage both companies and individuals to work with her.
If anyone questions the value of your services, Lauren, please feel free to have them email me.

Lauren helps her clients ask themselves the right questions. She perceptively identifies the issues blocking her clients--especially the ones that the client may not be confronting or even aware of.
When you spend a good part of your time getting your own clients to think about mission and strategy, goals and priorities, it's hard to focus your thoughts on those areas for your own business and career. Lauren helped me to see that road block and tear it down. Then, I could see whole pathways and new connection to what I really wanted to my career to be--ones I couldn't see before.
If you have any questions about how Lauren might help you, please feel free to contact me.

Lauren opened my eyes to opportunities to grow that I could not see because I was too bogged down with mundane details. I left each session with a clear plan of how to achieve my goals, both short and long term. She never told me what to do. She simply guided me along the path.

You help to put things in perspective, focus on my goals, then make plans to achieve those goals... a joy and a pleasure working with you.

Thanks Lauren! I appreciate the time spent this afternoon "holding up the mirror" for me to see my true desires...and fears. I am going to try to talk my husband into signing up as well, fingers crossed!
