Coaching

In response to movement restrictions to decrease the impact of COVID-19, I am offering needs-based coaching discounts. If you want coaching and can't afford the listed price, please talk with me. If you want coaching and can afford it please remember this is how I make my living, and my income has been drastically reduced by corona virus mitigation.

Laura can help you with:

  • public speaking, storytelling, and performance
  • creativity, getting over blocks, and gaining creative confidence
  • pursuing the work of your heart
  • accountability
  • executive management, leadership, and business projects
  • personal growth
  • community building
  • and more.

Working with Laura felt like working with a great teacher who really wanted me to succeed. She listened, helped me build my confidence, and gave me suggestions that worked.

Do you know the story about the lone hero who rides into town, defeats the bad guys and makes a great speech, then rides off into the sunset? It’s a common and very popular trope in all forms of storytelling. The hero saves the day, women swoon, men want to be his friend, and children long to be him. It’s a great story, but skips over some important details, like how he first learned about strategy, fighting, and wise retreats; the details of how he defeated his fear of public speaking; and the crucial friend who helps him in all of his efforts. It skips over the last vital detail: He is so good at what he does that he teaches the townspeople how to take care of each other and themselves.

I didn’t even want to admit I was afraid of speaking in public let alone to my direct reports, but Laura helped me get over the fear and feel much more confident. I am a better speaker now and a better boss because of her support.

A good coach can help with those details. Whether you are an artist, writer, business professional, or any other kind of hero, good coaching will help you understand and build upon your own strengths; recognize, understand and overcome your weaknesses; hone your work so it shines while remaining absolutely in your own voice; and give you the tools to keep getting better on your own.

I knew the story I wanted to tell but not how to tell it. I couldn’t get there by myself. Laura’s coaching made the difference.
