“I am here to facilitate your breakthroughs, and arm you with the confidence and knowledge you need to excel in and enjoy your Product Leadership journey.”

Laurie’s Coaching Style

Laurie leads with empathy while cutting right to the chase. She inserts mentorship into her coaching, advises, and guides based on what sets the person up the best in their career, not only thinking within the parameters of their current company.

She is inclusive and puts a lot of prep into making sure the sessions flow well. Laurie lets the conversation veer in a new direction if the whole group is pushing it that way, with plenty of hygiene checks to make sure everyone is aligned with shifts. In Laurie’s sessions, you will spend some time organizing your thoughts around big prompts, then coming back to the group to share and problem-solve.

Laurie’s group will include peer advisory, and she will ask questions to expand your thinking. She will also make sure to note any breakthroughs and send them out to the group so they can remember.
