Lauren has been an amazing coach. This journey has been the greatest investment in my personal development journey this year. She has helped me unlock value in my life and career by giving me tools to change how I think, how I act, how I treat others and how I treat myself. We took my life and my career and combed through it thoroughly to unlock opportunities for growth and to open way for further growth in my career. Often we do not see the things that stand in our way and Lauren’s approach to coaching provided this clarity for me. I started responding to life instead of reacting to it. And sure enough, life has started responding to me too. In career, and in my personal space. There is noticeable improvements.

These are the small changes that I’ll look back on years from now as the tools that placed me right on track to achieve my ultimate goals in life and career. I’d encourage anyone to try Lauren’s service. She teaches from an experience point of view and she is well versed on all her work. She gives the best feedback and has a great eye for identifying what her clients need when in comes to improvement opportunities

Lauren is more than just a mentor, she always went out of her way to make sure that my training and coaching was up to standard. She is good at even paying attention to the fine details that enable an individual to stand out. To date Lauren has built me into an employable individual due to her extensive training.

I met Lauren in my first year of work and that was a game changer. Within the first session she listened to my challenges and gave me simple, easy and practical steps to follow to get to a point where I turn challenges into opportunities. Considering her diverse background from Geology to six Sigma, her approach to problem solving applies across industries and disciplines to personal and career related as well. I would call the approach similar to “Mentoring” She acts as a mentor to guide where you need guidance but also allows you, as an Intern, to share what you did not even think you knew. I will always be grateful for everything I learnt and accomplished with and through her.

Lauren is a former colleague of mine and I can't speak highly enough of her technical skills and ability to work with different people. She has always acted as a great mentor and coach and her willingness to share her "treasure trove" of knowledge is admirable. I will advise any young professional to make use of Lauren's mentoring and coaching program.
