“I’ve worked with Laura Kessler for the past several years. Her role has been to help me to be a more effective CEO for my tech company.

 As with most companies, we’ve had our good times and our challenging times. Laura has been a loyal and supportive cheerleader during the good times, but it’s during the trying times that she truly shines. No matter what predicament I find myself in, Laura always seems to be able to provide some wise, insightful guidance.

 She is a wealth of information on a wide array of business topics, but her background in voice and performance coaching really sets her apart. She doesn’t belabor the point, but it’s clear that leaders are always on the stage and in the spotlight. There are numerous times that a performing tip she has shared with me came in handy.

 Laura adapts her approach to the needs of the client. In my case, I like more topical coaching. I like to focus on the issues at hand, versus a more structured approach. Laura has accommodated me in this desire and it has worked well for us. But, I also know that she can be highly structured when appropriate.

 I wholeheartedly recommend Laura to anyone seeking a business coach. Her background and her approach make her an excellent partner for anyone desiring to improve their effectiveness.”
