“Laureen DeBuono is truly rare in this world, both as a person and as a professional. She brings a unique blend of real life experience along with a passion and skill for coaching. She has an uncanny ability to motivate individuals such as myself and to help push others to think critically, constructively and often outside the box! Laureen’s candid feedback and tactful approach to accountability keeps me focused on the work that will be most impactful to our organization. Laureen’s listening skills are first rate. She would pick up on issues instinctively, prepare thoroughly for sessions, and teach me techniques to deal with specific situations I was facing. Laureen would employ a good mix of behavioral models, role playing tough discussions, “in their shoes” empathy exercises, and mapping out actions to take by our next session. Laureen keeps you focused on taking small actions that move you incrementally toward your goals throughout the coaching process. Being an effective leader takes time, desire and hard work. Laureen immediately helped me develop my own goals to measure my effectiveness in my role. It was refreshing to work with Laureen and to achieve milestones in such a short amount of time. If you are looking for one of the smartest investments you can make in your career – this is it…I am forever inspired from this experience!”Ginna Raahauge, Vice President, IT, Cisco Systems Inc.
