What Do Our Clients Say about Us? 

"Laurie helped my organization transform from a “green” leadership team with no established trust and partnerships to a dynamic, high performing organization.  Through the work Laurie helped us to unify around a common mission.  The workshops enabled us to effectively communicate, trust each other, and build lasting relationships.  This was critical as we built brand new teams, functions, and processes while changing established norms and culture. This led to a 10% increase in leadership engagement and a 31% increase in team member engagement. Pretty awesome and really speaks to the ripple effect an engaged management team can have on an organization! I don’t think I told you enough how great the work and support you gave my team was!"  -- VP Client Experience, Fortune 50 Financial Services Organization

"Through working with Laurie over 18 months, the improvement is really around management engagement. Based on feedback I got there has been many positive improvements. I feel very comfortable with 15%. It is hard to measure this, but from my seat, I hear a lot from my managers that rather than coming to me for solutions, they will talk among themselves and let me know they figured out the solution which is best for the whole team, not just one team." – SVP Loan Operations, Fortune 50 Financial Services Organization
