Through the work of hundreds, if not thousands of neuroscientists, psychologists, and practitioners of Conversational Intelligence, we are learning how human beings process language and conversations in the brain. 

Our work as Coaches, Consultants, Facilitators and Trainers is to work with the newest thinking about conversations and translate this new wisdom so that it’s accessible to our clients and to each other.  When doing this we create extraordinary bridges that connect people, teams, partners and organizations. Come join Laurie to learn how to build these bridges through a full day experiential workshop.

These bridges enable people to connect with others with whom they may not have previously connected, to find more things in common, to have a shared language to explain and work through difficult conversations as well as those that have the potential to enable breakthroughs. 

“To get to the next level of greatness depends on the quality of the culture, which depends on the quality of the conversations, which depends on the quality of conversations.  Everything happens through conversations.” – Judith E. Glaser, author of “Conversational Intelligence: How Great Leaders BUILD TRUST and Get Extraordinary Results.”

Coaches set the foundation with their clients and work to help them achieve goals, overcome barriers, and rise to challenges. 

Through active listening to core values, powerful questioning, and designing actions, how are coaches also considering ways to measure the return on investment of coaching – both for the client and their organization. 

Join us for an evening with Dr. Hayley Hesseln, CEC and Janice Gair PCC, CPHR, owners of EI ADVANTAGE ( an organization that provides emotional intelligence certification, coaching, research, evaluation and publishing in the field of coaching and emotional intelligence.
