Professional Women Clients Say:

“Lori worked with me individually at two important junctures in my life—once as part of my personal work in the Newfield coaching program and then about a year later when I was in the process of launching my own law business.  Lori helped me to tap into the inner confidence and courage I needed to undertake something I had always dreamed of doing but was afraid to try. Through our work together, I gained confidence, clarity, and commitment to focus on my business as well as increased satisfaction in my life overall. With Lori’s help, I have set up a life of my own design which I continue to refine, enjoy and grow into. I’ve found Lori to be an invaluable ally and support in my personal empowerment, telling me what I need to hear in a caring way, enabling me to assess my life honestly and clearly so I can make lasting change. I can’t recommend her highly enough. She is a truly gifted coach.”

“Lori took me out of my comfort zone (in a gentle, non-threatening way) to explore my reactions to various situations, thereby allowing me to recognize when I was in discomfort.  Lori also provided a tool kit appropriate to me, containing several methods to immediately shift my responses (and thus the potential outcome) of the situations.  The net result of my time with Lori was a clarification of my priorities and passions.



Corporate leader

“I had doubts about coaching by phone.  Telephone coaching with Lori turned out to be invaluable.  It was exactly what I needed at a challenging time in my career. I was acclimating to a new boss and struggling with organizational changes that could have derailed my career.  Lori’s professional “3rd party” perspective helped me maintain personal balance and ultimately offer valuable insights to help my entire organization weather some challenging times.  I periodically refer back to notes from our sessions.  They are still valuable to me.”

“…the first word of association I make with your coaching is “opening” as it was part of an exercise that I did with you, I kept it in my daily planner for a long time.  The exercise was about linking goals with different postures and word associations with them.  Working with this type of exercise with opening or openness empowered me to bring much more of the private or non- work-related self into the office.  It was a more whole self thus yielding greater confidence with my superiors and dare I say leadership with my peers.  When the re-orgs started happening I was moved into a Strategic role along with my manager now as my peer. It was a lateral move for him, but a vertical move for me.  The work that got me noticed occurred at the same time that I was being coached by you.”
