Who’s this for?

New managers




Just yesterday you were peers with some colleagues who are now reporting to you. Now that you are a manager, not only your responsibilities have changed, but the interpersonal dynamics you’ve had with team members are completely different. People are looking up to you for leadership and to help them grow in their own careers. A lot is expected of you, and the liabilities are greater as well. Your words weigh more. Your decisions have broader implications. For first-time managers, it’s a lot to learn and apply. 

In this specific workshop, we’ll look into the basics of transitioning from an individual contributor role into a management role for first-time managers. There are tons of resources on people management, but if you’re new to it, this is a good place to start. 

During this workshop, we will:

  • Learn to prioritize time more effectively as a manager
  • Discover how to expand our network and build relationships
  • Utilize your people to drive successful outcomes
  • Become aware of and adjust our communication patterns
  • Build a support system

After the workshop, you will have learned:

  • Tools and skills that will help you transition more smoothly

Hi, I’m Laura and I am certified coach. I started my own coaching practice, One Amazing You, in 2014 after working for 13 years in the areas of management, new employee training, and as a hiring manager. I have also spent the last 2 years working as a coach in the corporate arena
with BetterUp.

As a manager and a working mom I felt, first hand, the struggle to find balance in my career and truly show up in the way I wanted to each day. Due to my passion for personal development, I continued to strive to find new ways to reach my goals and be the best version of myself in all the different areas of my life. With this experience I have chosen to focus my career into coaching and training others how to bring more of who they are into what they do. I seek to assist people in understanding their strengths and values in order to show up in their careers and relationships in powerful, authentic ways.

Both in my career and personally I have realized the power of aligning our efforts with our values, so this continues to be a foundational part of my coaching and training. I have worked with employees from large and small companies as well as entrepreneurs. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

If you would like to schedule a private workshop or training I specialize in these areas:
• Using your strengths (I work with the VIA strengths assessment)
• Spotting strengths in your team
• Values in conflicts, in your leadership, in your team, in creating work/life balance
