"Laura Gmeinder is the calm to my storm. She also just has a way with words. She makes everyone feel special and excited to be part of something awesome! Her Facebook posts, blogs, and twitter posts amaze me. Laura is incredibly creative."

I've worked with Laura in several capacities over the years. She is very professional and passionate about her business. She is dedicate to helping people get what they want out of life whether by supporting management and employees in a business setting or coaching individuals. She also has a strong background in training and loves to do motivational speaking. In particular, my solo HR group was very pleased with Laura's presentation on using coaching skills (powerful questions) to enhance employee relations and engagement. I would highly recommend working with Laura! Jennifer Wilkie, PHR, Human Resources Manager/ SHRM Solo group member

We may be a good fit to collaborate if you can relate:

  • You are struggling in your business, feeling frustrated, overwhelmed or burned out.
  • You spend all of your time managing and on your own work.  You don't have time- or energy-  to lead your team.
  • Your team's morale is low.  Many don't love what they do- and it shows. Communication and trust are lacking.
  • You want to increase your visibility and results. $$$
  • You are looking for creative ideas to grow your business or transform your workplace.

"Laura is one of the most dynamic and hard working individuals that I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Her enthusiasm and genuine desire to help others, both personally and professionally, is contagious.
