Laura Thompson, MA, CPC, ACC is known by many as the global “go-to” Executive Coach and an inspiring Leadership Development Specialist working with individuals, cohorts of young professionals on the leadership pathway, and senior leaders—transforming their challenges into opportunities to thrive in a rapidly changing world.

Laura focuses on leaders managing people as human beings by enabling them to tap into their highest motivations, talents, capabilities, creativity, and intelligence in alignment with the company’s mission and values that creates increased return on investment for the company with happier employees. She bases her coaching, mentoring, advising, training, and facilitating on human-centered design utilizing the whole-person paradigm.


Inspiring Leadership coach like Simon Sinek: Wholesome brand of inspiration—listen for the ‘why’ people do what they do rather than ‘what’ people do.
— Richard P., CEO, Serial Entrepreneur, San Diego, California
I lead an incredibly busy and stressful life as a marketing executive, and working with Laura has been life changing. Not only did she fully grasp the demands I was under, she was extremely intuitive. Laura consistently got me to answers that I couldn’t seem to find on my own. Being in a leadership position requires a certain level of corporate acumen and Laura’s capabilities go above and beyond this understanding. In addition, she brings a global perspective that I found elevated my own aspirations of what I could achieve. I highly recommend Laura as a corporate and executive coach and for anyone in a leadership position.
— Katie S., Strategy and Innovation Executive, Global Digital Advertising and Marketing, New York City
If you are looking for someone to help you get empowered and lead and manage in new and innovative ways, then Laura is your “go-to” coach. My coaching sessions with Laura were a kind of eye opening for me that I was able to lead and manage differently.

Coaching was around time management, people management, effective upward and downward management, effective communication skills, educating staff on needs of organization, cooperation and collaboration, team building, stepping into your leadership capability, coming up with new initiatives in innovative ways, motivating and trusting your team among other fun insights to engage employees. Dealing with stress to become resilient. Caring about employees, colleagues and supervisors while being able to say no when necessary.
