“Most people live, whether physically, intellectually or morally, in a very restricted circle of their potential being. We all have reservoirs of life to draw upon, of which we do not dream.”

— William James —

Depending upon the size and scope of the engagement, trusted associates are brought in as needed. The discovery process might include:

  • People and Culture Assessments
  • Selection and Talent Management Assessments
  • Qualitative Interviews
  • 360-Degree Feedback
  • Focus Groups
  • Desk Audits

We can help you and your team learn how you may be blocking your success with limiting beliefs and mental models, ineffective communication skills, and/or misaligned behaviors and actions. By taking a “Whole-Person Approach,” we work with you and your team and teach you the attitudes, skills, and behaviors that will enable you to transform your organization’s culture into a great place to work. Unlike many training and coaching organizations, we address mindset, skillset, and toolsets to reinforce sustainable results.

The “principles for inspired success” are consistent regardless of your industry or functional specialty. These principles are supported by practical tools and techniques and encompass authentic leadership through self-awareness, skill development, and personal growth. In short, we share the essential principles, practices, and help you to discover personal insights for inspired success.

At Laura A. Davis & Associates, Inc. we know you want to develop your people so they communicate and collaborate with one another more effectively. We also know that the primary role of leadership at any organization is building a culture of TRUST and HIGH PERFORMANCE.

This stage of the process might include:

  • Customized and Tailored Training Sessions
  • Executive Coaching for Individuals and Teams
  • Leadership Retreats
  • Leadership Consulting
  • Onboarding and Succession Planning
  • Strategy Development Days
  • Meeting Facilitation
  • Speaking at Conference Break-Out Sessions

We have set ourselves apart in that we know you don’t want to waste time and company resources on interventions that don’t work. That’s why we’ve been partnering with professionals like you since 1995 to help organizations:

  • Develop more emotionally intelligent leaders
  • Build more cohesive, high-trust, high-performance teams
  • Attract and retain the right people for the right roles

We don’t believe in “one-size-fits-all” cookie cutter approaches like some of the service providers in this space. Instead, we help you create specific solutions tailored to your organization’s unique needs.

Leading-edge learning and talent development practices for the 21st century recognize that learning is not a “one and done” kind of event. Sustaining behavior change can be challenging, but we plan to embed whatever learning solutions we provide into the culture of your organization from the outset. This might involve:

  • Action Learning
  • Train the Trainer and Certification
  • Ongoing Peer Coaching
  • Learning Tools
