Executive and Business Coaching
Laura is a Solution-Focused Executive Coach working with leaders who want to identify and live into their own, authentic leadership style. In a leadership role it shouldn't feel like you are wearing someone else's suit that doesn't quite fit right - but often that's the case if we haven't had the time to think intentionally about our own style and are left to simply adopt someone else's.
Laura uses Solution-Focused methodology to invite her clients to design their own unique, practical approach to leadership, including a plan to guide and measure progress. Prior to Your Latitude, Laura worked in corporate and felt the pressures and stresses of holding leadership roles without an intentional mindset of what leadership was, or could be. Near the end of her corporate career she met a mentor who changed everything and supported her in living into an authentic role and identify. Laura founded Your Latitude to help other professionals do the same.
Laura is the founder of Your Latitude, a coaching and professional development company offering 1:1 and group coaching and training. She is fluent in multiple facilitation techniques and methods to support and encourage engagement of 1:1 or groups in a virtual setting, including a unique platform involving Equine Assisted Learning (horses) - yes, in a virtual setting! She is also a mediator, with experience conducting group mediation in a virtual setting. Laura is a Business Professor at a leading business college in Ontario, Canada and is a former certified Dale Carnegie facilitator.

Tips before the call:
Ask yourself this question: "If I had a clear idea of who I was as a leader, and lived into this identity each day with purpose, what difference would that make?"
"In my mid 60s I was not open to coaching and "changing" who I was. I was frustrated with someone thinking I should react in a different way, after all I made it this far in life and I was just fine. I was, however, getting tired of the attitude and arguing with my director for whom I had worked for more than 20 years. I didn't really see how MY changing was going to affect the outcomes because after all, she was still herself, she wasn't going to change. I approached this coaching experience apprehensively but immediately Laura put me at ease with her methods and approach. She helped me identify my own authentic style and helped me change my mindset about leadership. She didn't try to "change me" - she helped me grow into who I was always supposed to be. Coaching hasn't changed who I am, it has helped me adjust how I approach issues with others." -- Director, Academic Institution
"Hiring Laura is without a doubt the best decision - she has made a substantial and positive difference in my professional and personal life. Laura helped me think through critical issues that have a major impact on my professional success and personal life. Laura’s talent as a coach has helped me discover my own strengths and build on them. The opportunity to think out loud with her helps me gain clarity about particular problems or issues and to develop strategies to move forward. Laura asks challenging questions and encourages me to take risks and at the same time is very helpful and supportive. Working with her has inspired me to think bigger, do more and really accept my power, all of which has made my life richer and more fulfilling." -- Business Leader
