"Thanks Laurel for all you do!
Too often leaders get filtered down versions of the truth due to positional power. With you, they get the actual truth. This is important for their business because time is money and there is no time to guess what people really are trying to say or what they are really needing. Your coaching will lead to unprecedented productivity for them."
