Coaching Philosophy

For Lori coaching is all about hearing an individual, connecting with them, and helping them to identify their own voice.  Lori’s goal is to help leaders understand their purpose, what drives them and allows them to be who they are in the world.  As she works with leaders on shaping their goals and required actions, she begins to pull away the layers – helping leaders to let go of perceptions, fears, or judgments that may be limiting their potential.  Lori works to create a container with her clients where they are then able to play and to experiment with leading differently; truly giving them space to be authentic.  Lori believes in “teaching her clients to fish vs feeding them” to develop their long-term capability.  Her style of coaching creates an engaging and powerful experience for her clients.  Many of her clients experience transformation as they lead change in both themselves and their organizations.  She is warm and genuine in her approach and is known for creating instant rapport and trust.  As a self-described HR gypsy, Lori intentionally moved between several different industries throughout her career.  This personal trajectory allowed her to build a broad scope of experience to understand systems in all kinds of environments.  This diverse background facilitates Lori’s ability to receive a broad range of people and have an appreciation of the universe within which they operate.  As a result, she is successful with leaders at all levels and is able to meet the client where they are.  So come let go, begin to play and experiment, and ultimately learn to lead differently!
