During our 1:1 coaching, Laura and I have developed an extremely trusting, productive, and effective relationship. From the beginning, I found her observations and coaching to be insightful, unique, and more credible than most. Her listening skills and attention to detail are excellent. Undoubtedly this contributes to her having an incredible ability to provide perceptively accurate and meaningful feedback. She can be nurturing and/or firm and direct when either is appropriate. Her style and approach are an effective blend of data supported and pragmatic logic, innovative and creative experimentation, and strategic use of long and short term planning and execution.
As a result, I have discovered a new found confidence and energy I hadn’t realized before. Leveraging my strengths while effectively managing my weaknesses has been the most valuable outcome for me. Behaviors such as avoidance and procrastination have been greatly reduced. Challenging relationships have improved and become more effective. Understanding and managing unique and sometimes volatile emotional issue both in my personal life and in my business roles has also been positively improved.
Surprisingly for me, the most intriguing and effective tool Laura offered during our work was our activities around mind body relationships, specifically an exercise called “Centering”. Such an esoteric and somewhat holistic concept wasn’t something I normally would have readily incorporated. However, because of my trust and confidence in Laura, I willingly surrendered and embraced this exercise and received immediate and amazing results and benefits.
In closing, not only am I satisfied with the work and coaching Laura has provided, it has far exceeded my expectations. A very reputable executive coach once respectfully told me that I was “un-coachable”. I took no offense to this and for many reasons thought this to be true. Laura scoffed at this notion and proved this to be an invalid assessment…. I am thankful for Laura and the work we have done and the goals we have accomplished. I am a better person and manager as a result. Laura is an incredibly gifted and uniquely talented executive coach but more noteworthy yet, she is an even more amazing person.
