Team Coaching and Workshops

Nurture your creative talent.

In todays’ rapidly changing world all creative leaders must make a shift from what they feel ready to do to what they are called to do. Develop the next generation of leaders from within your own organization through engagements that thoughtfully blend coaching, mediation, facilitation, neuroscience, and system thinking in support of meeting your organizational goals

Explore the Individual

Acknowledging the unique individuals that comprise a partnership or a team is the first step to forming a relationship that is built on trust, respect, commitment, and mutual accountability.

Engage the Team

High performing teams have a shared vision, clear roles & responsibilities, and alignment on how success will be measured. The team is more than just a group of individuals; the team is an entity unto itself!

Serve the Organization

Effective teaming requires attunement to the needs of the larger organization or outside stakeholders they serve. This cross- boundary perspective informs decision-making and enables the team to consistently deliver results.

Testimonials

“Laura helped me see change can be undertake incrementally as a transition and instead of a pivot. This seemingly obvious mindset helps alleviate insecurities and feeling overwhelmed by the enormity of making a work/life change. After our sessions with Laura, I gave myself “permission” to explore a new direction in ways that do not threaten my current situation and may allow for a blending of the old and new paths that I had not considered.

Practice Co-Director, California Environmental Associates

"We are an opinionated and sometimes difficult group to facilitate and you were patient and thoughtful, and crafted our time to reflect what we asked for both before and during the session…I believe we retained the attention and deep work of the whole group for the afternoon which is pretty much a miracle!”

The Five Conversations
Leadership workshops

Successful, innovative creative outcomes are achieved through a series of conversations. There are five conversational contexts that every creative leader should master for collaborating with others who represent different perspectives, experiences, and opinions. Each conversation topic can be delivered as a half day, full day, or multi-day event.
