Laura is truly an expert in the field of organizational management! She is also a visionary who can help others create a vision, develop strategies, and implement successful initiatives. I would highly recommend Laura for both public and private organizations.
I had the pleasure of working with Laura on many projects over the course of several years. I was consistently impressed and inspired by Laura’s leadership and vision. She is a talented facilitator, consistently bringing together and successfully managing diverse talents and personalities in executing long-range plans and goals. Laura sees the big picture–often ahead of others–while skillfully keeping her team on task. She is the rare leader that knows how to leverage others’ talents alongside her own while avoiding micromanaging. Perhaps best of all, she does all of this while maintaining a great sense of humor and never losing sight of how a project connects to the mission and the youth whose lives will be impacted as a result of her and her team’s efforts.
Laura’s ability to empower others, bring together diverse groups, and build capacity within teams demonstrates her leadership, strategy, and design expertise. She brings a wealth of experience and a keen ability to streamline complicated processes to overcome challenges and achieve positive outcomes.
Laura Piening is someone who consistently delivers what she promises. I have utilized Laura’s services as a coach on more than one occasion, and I continue to be surprised each time by how much we accomplish. I was extremely resistant to the idea of writing a formal business plan, so she created a nontraditional one that is so perfectly tailored to me that I actually use it! It is creative, practical, and inspiring.
I can recommend Laura Piening without reservation. Laura worked with us to develop systems for tracking every phase of publications development and to evaluate potential strategies for overcoming obstacles and realizing our goals. In sum, Laura’s skills as an organizer, a mediator, and a communicator served our program well.
