Lori there are a few pivotal moments in my life and one of them involves you. You delivered my 360 results and you were so kind and instrumental in the way you presented what was true and difficult feedback. That moment helped me decide what my next chapter would be.
Thank you so much for EVERYTHING, Lori. You are an amazing coach with powerful insights. Your empathy allows you to tap into people’s core and really help them get out of their own way! Thanks again. I know that we will work together again!
Again, many thanks for our dialog. Always a great learning opportunity, and a great pleasure! Thanks to your invaluable insights, I am proud to say that I am a better person today.
Lori has the right mix of deep listening, gentle prodding, insightful comments/questions that quickly get to the heart of the matter with a strong drive for us to achieve noticeable changes for me. Our coaching sessions have been incredibly impactful for me.
Lori is great! She’s action-oriented and drives towards solutions. She’s always strongly tuned in and aware and will change course if she picks up on a new theme or area of concern. I highly recommend her.
Thank you for all your support, guidance and wisdom. Your coaching was clear, pragmatic and challenged me to consider situations from other perspectives. Really enjoyed working with you as well and I look forward to staying in touch.
Lori is a fantastic coach. I really appreciated her compassionate but focused and direct style. She established trust and a great connection early on which I felt allowed us to maximize our time working on my development.
I feel that everything I learned from Lori has been valuable in helping me be a better leader and team member. I developed more and in a more targeted, impactful way in this 6 months of coaching than I have in the last 12 years of my career.
I always enjoy our time together because I feel like I get to walk out smarter and with a few new tips/tricks to try in my own facilitation and coaching. Thanks again for connecting so well with our leaders and really bringing them to some thought changing realizations!
It’s such a great pleasure to work with you and I very much value your contribution.
Lori has been fabulous to work with, I could not be more happy with the way she has engaged with the team and the feedback I have received from them is that she really has made this easy all round. Lori is an absolute delight to work with.
Thanks again for all of your help and guidance along this journey!
