  • Staff engagement
  • Delegation
  • Organisational and personal effectiveness
  • Communication and presentation skills

As an associate, Laura has been working with The Leaders’ Forum and strongly supports their approach of understanding and building upon the existing strengths of the individual or team and addressing areas of weakness in a strategic manner—for example, addressing as a priority those that are critical to roles or are not addressed through the wider team. With The Leaders’ Forum, Laura has most recently been working with doctors in Torbay Hospital.

Laura is an accredited Strengthscope® user and can offer Strengthscope® assessments to clients who wish to understand their strengths more fully and to explore how to use them better in the workplace. Examples of the reports can be seen on the Strengthscope® website. The costs of the report are very competitive, and the report can be referred to throughout coaching and continued personal learning.
