Laura Gleisner, BSE, MS, ACC, is a professional leadership coach, communication specialist and sole proprietor of Laura Gleisner Coaching + Consulting, LLC, and has over 20 years of experience as an educator, consultant, coach and trainer. A quote attributed to Tony Robbins, “The quality of our lives is equal to the quality of our relationships,” has created the foundation for her coaching with leaders and teams. She believes that in order for leaders to create satisfying professional relationships, healthy work environments (i.e. life-giving rather than life-draining) and maximize their impact, leaders today need to be experts in the fine art of communication. As a leadership coach and communication specialist, Laura practices and trains leaders and teams to communicate in a way that builds trust, creates healthy work environments and supports efficiency, productivity and goal achievement.
Laura is a self-described “recovering perfectionist” and has struggled with social anxiety her entire life. A gift of these challenges is that she geeks out on personal development, leadership and communication books, videos and trainings. These experiences, in addition to her work in coaching and communication, have solidified her belief that coaching conversations can change your life.
