“Laurie Rosenfeld brings compassion, skill and determination to her coaching work. She is dedicated to her client’s growth, development and overall success. Using insightful feedback that blends enthusiastic support and caring challenge Laurie aligns herself towards her clients’ success. She is results focused and knows how to inspire and encourage her clients towards greater levels of personal and professional achievement. I would work with Laurie on any project and consider her counsel invaluable.”

Catherine Johnson, M.A., Former Academic Dean, Leadership Institute of Seattle

“Laurie is an attentive coach who demonstrates a high level of engagement with her clients. Her questions are well thought out and on track with what the client seems to have energy discussing. She acknowledges the work her client does in between and in the sessions. I enjoyed our mentor coaching engagements. Laurie was a model student, taking in the feedback and applying the new learnings for the next session.”

Dian Christian, M.B.A., M.S.O.D., PCC, Mentor-Coach with Fielding Graduate University’s Evidence-Based Coaching Program

“Laurie is an insightful, compassionate coach, with a vast skillset and knowledge base to draw from. I don’t know any other coaches with her particular array of experience: management consultant, lawyer, enneagram teacher, OD consultant… the list is long and impressive. All of this previous experience and understanding is synergistically combined in Laurie. She brings all of herself to every conversation, and her passion for development is evident. I’ve worked with Laurie in several different capacities, and I can’t think of one conversation with Laurie when I haven’t felt supported, challenged, and INSPIRED.”

Lain Kahlstrom, Senior Associate, Point B

“I had the privilege of studying with Laurie during a one year coaching certification program. The program was one of the most powerful learning experiences I have had in part because of the participation of Laurie. Her ability to balance the technical elements of coaching with empathy, insight, and genuine concern provided me with a real-life example that such a balance is possible. She combines support, encouragement and warmth with theory and a focus on results that facilitates growth in a seemingly effortless manner.”

Patrick Smith, M.A., Cadre Consultant Organizational Psychology, Personnel Decisions International, Saudi Arabia

“I had the great fortune of attending Fielding Graduate University’s Evidence Based Coaching certificate program with Laurie. Over the course of a year I observed her coaching on several occasions and was coached by her as well. Laurie is an exceptionally gifted coach. She exhibits the highest regard for her clients and knows just when to ask the perfect question. The words that come to mind when I think of Laurie are curious, intentional and emotionally aware. If you engage Laurie as your coach prepare to be transformed!”

Gail Perry, M.S., Director of Human Resources, Arizona Western College, Yuma, AZ

“I had the honor of studying with Laurie in the EBC program at Fielding. She exemplifies “dancing in the moment” with her clients. Her ability to allow her personality to be fully present while adapting to the tone, energy, and pace of her clients is masterful. In addition to her talent as a coach, Laurie is attuned to the needs of others. She reached out to me intuitively to offer support at a time when I really needed it. Her affirmation, support, and encouragement is a big part of why I was able to complete the program. I hold Laurie in the highest regard.”

Natalie Trabert, M.A., Principal, KEI Consulting Company, Los Angeles, CA

“Laurie was my classmate and became a friend at the Fielding Graduate University‘s Evidence Based Coaching program. I was so lucky to be her client. Laurie‘s energy provides fuel for two for the journey. In Hungarian is said that the pepper is small but strong. The spicy flavour of the strong pepper combined with enthusiasm and trust to the process and the client creates the field of force for safe work. Her genuine curiosity, kindness, empathy and logical mapping of the issue guided me through the thicket of fears. In the end I found myself having a breakthough, got clarity and leaving the session with an action plan, which was proven since then a brilliant solution. That is true, that not every session leads to such a breakthrough. But what is more true, that only with the guidance of a talented coach, like Laurie might happen this kind of miracle.”

Anna Drosztmer, M.Sc., M.A., The Park Ltd., Budapest, Hungary

“Laurie is a gifted coach whose deeply empathic heart and incisive, inquisitive mind provide a unique benefit to her clients. Through the lens of her caring intelligence, clients see themselves and their lives in a clear, compassionate, possibility-filled light. Laurie’s skills and knowledge facilitate clients in accessing and using their own tools to create meaningful and lasting change. I strongly recommend Laurie as a transformative growth and expansion partner.”

Laura DeHaven, Senior Planner, Terra Nova Planning & Research, Santa Ynez, CA

“I find Laurie Rosenfeld to be an outstanding coach. Her coaching presence combined with her depth of understanding and the experience she brings to the profession, results in a coach who is compassionate, not afraid to challenge in service of her clients, and astute in her observations. In my experience, Laurie’s combination of skills and heart result in effective coaching and ultimately new awareness on the part of her clients. I highly recommend Laurie.”
