Lori’s coaching ability and skills have had a major impact on my ability to survive and continue growing in what has been one of the most tumultuous and challenging periods for me in my 25 year career. The safe environment she provided, the extremely useful books, articles and tools she recommended and the trust she quickly earned enabled me to honestly assess my strengths and weaknesses, hone the former and become more aware of the latter so that I could take the right steps in an extremely uncertain and unsupportive organizational situation."
