Laura Hansen coaches executives and high potential leaders drawing from over 20 years of business experience. She enjoys working with high-performing individuals who wish to develop their mastery as leaders and make a significant difference in their organizations.
As the former owner and CEO of a privately held company, Laura is a skilled facilitator of groups and individuals engaged in being more effective, creative and innovative in the workplace. As a CEO, she had a reputation for building exceptional, supportive, high-performing, organizational cultures and for being a strategic and systemic thinker.

Laura’s coaching approach seeks to enhance the self-awareness and capacities of leaders to innovate and transform themselves and their organizations. Laura’s clients have described her as a keen listener, insightful, empathetic, intuitive, supportive, clear, challenging, and direct. Her style of making her clients “comfortably uncomfortable” accelerates their growth as strong focused leaders.

Laura has coached leaders from middle management to C-suite executive in mid-size businesses up to Fortune 500 companies in a wide variety of industries including: technology, aerospace, healthcare, telecommunications, pharmaceutical, media, manufacturing, financial services, retail and legal services.

When she’s not coaching, she’s either in her studio making art, at her computer writing a memoir, in nature hiking, in the kitchen cooking, reading, or travelling around the world. She also leads international retreat events for women leaders using creativity and the creative process for renewal, inspiration, and developing intuition and innovation.
