In the course of self-leadership sessions, Laura coached me on powerful mindful communication techniques. She shared principles of corresponding with others in mindful ways including setting an intention of being aware, non-judgmental and to treat with empathy. It’s been great learning from Laura! She is kind, inspiring, articulate, a great listener and overall, a really amazing person! Happy to have crossed paths with Laura!❞
