“Until I met with Dr. Roth, I had never been professionally coached. I wasn't sure what to expect. It was an amazing experience! Dr. Roth made brilliant connections between my personality and work style. Using that, she taught me how to translate information from my supervisor into a manageable way for me. I also learned some interesting tips and tricks for managing projects and daily tasks. Communication between my supervisor and I has definitely improved, and we are much more efficient. Thank you, Dr. Roth!”

"Lori lives the example when it comes to strengths-based teams. I worked for Lori for close to ten years, and she succeeded in building a high-trust, cross-trained, highly functioning team by listening carefully to who we were and what we wanted from our careers, and then facilitating team conversations around our strengths and goals. By clarifying both the team’s mission and our own personal missions, Lori asked the right questions to get us talking and thinking deeply about how to meet our goals, grow, and feel fulfilled at work and personally. I strongly endorse Lori’s strengths-based approach to team building and leadership."

The insights that you helped the class participants discover have opened doors for me which have made me a more effective leader. And also made me a more aware, compassionate and supportive colleague. The commitment you have made to training is invaluable and a huge part of my preparation for this next step on my path. I can’t thank you enough.”
Tim Harps, Participant in Leadership Series
"As a tenured coach, Lori provided me with a plethora of tools, patiently helped me work through several challenges, created consistent accountability with assignments plus reading materials, provided a safe environment and utilized her biggest asset of listening intently to the words, phrases and patterns that I used when speaking. She has a very keen intellect that allows her to identify what initially seems like just words but in actuality those words speak volumes about how someone views themselves, the people around them and the world they live in. Lastly, she is very passionate about helping others reach their full potential and brings a wonderful sense of humor and kindness to her facilitation. If you are looking for someone to help you grow in a specific part of your life or just in general, Lori is your coach! It was an absolute pleasure to work with her."
