I worked with Laurel to help a company address the impact of the recent recession. Laurel played a critical facilitation and often leadership role, as we executed a combination of downsizing, process improvement, and business and asset rationalization to help the company maximize profits. While the results speak volumes, Laurel's greatest strength is her unassuming style that helps a wide range of people to trust her enough to put the "real issues" on the table. She then helps leadership to focus on these issues, and use their collective knowledge of them to create a viable, winning and lasting change process supported by a wide range of stakeholders. The change process pays dividends well into the future both corporately and personally. I would highly recommend Laurel's work in complicated and challenging organizational transitions.
