SEED Beauty has been working with Engaged Leadership and Laura Marvin, exclusively, for the last several years. The scope has included leadership development of our middle management as well as working closely with our executive team. After interviewing several firms and now knowing what Laura Marvin has delivered, I can without hesitation endorse Engaged Leadership and Laura Marvin personally. She has a unique ability to deeply understand a company’s culture and vision and how to help bridge that gap. She has become a trusted partner for myself to tackle the most challenging talent issues.
In the time I’ve worked with Laura, she has done a fantastic job helping me with my ability to connect with those on my team that report to me as well as improve my ability to communicate with other members of the leadership team. Laura’s compassion and ability to genuinely listen make the feedback that she gives some of the most valuable I’ve ever received in my time in a leadership role.
Laura Marvin is smart, quick, creative, funny, wise, and opinionated. Working with someone who has the confidence to bring a thoughtful and studied perspective was immensely valuable and enjoyable. Laura partnered with us to create and deliver leadership development training for aspiring leaders, working with them to train their mental game for success. Laura truly helps others take their skills to the next level.
Laura Marvin is not only an inspiration but a phenomenal facilitator. She was able to connect with my team immediately, creating a comfortable, trusting environment for our offsite. Through the Leadership Series, Accelerating Team Performance, she helped us become more aligned and we were able to develop a team focus. I look forward to working with Laura again!!
