Keynotes, workshops & consulting to reduce burn-out & lack of engagement in your employees

“I was impressed at Lauren’s vast knowledge base, real-life examples and the simple tools she shared.  I was particularly impressed that she invited group participation and fielded questions so that everyone got help on the issues that were directly impacting them.  We all left with a lot of practical tips to help lead our team into healthier dynamics.”
~ Joe, Cardiac Rehab Manager, Los Angeles

What role does self-care and mental wellness play in your organization?

Signs of poor self-care and mental wellness in your employees may be hard to see at first.

Subtle issues like low engagement, poor job satisfaction, pulling away from social contact or a lack of innovation impacts all employees at certain times in their careers.

When we don’t identify these issues early and treat their root cause they can fester into burnout with poor employee retention, hot tempers that hurt team dynamics for years to come or an overall breakdown of the health of your organization.

By introducing easy-to-use self-care tools and self-discovery exercises we care for the one and that in turn cares for the many.

It’s this that allow the ecosystem of your organization flourish.

With this inside-out approach, the growth that individuals experience are sustainable and initiate immediate and lasting results. From communication to systems to management to profitability your organization can change while empowering everyone to contribute to the greater whole.

Why I do what I do; A personal note…
I have spent a life long journey learning to care for myself.  Growing up overly sensitive to my environment, and the people in it, finding my feet in stressful circumstances was difficult.

I found myself in a chronic stress cycle in my adolescence and spent many rocky years looking for ways to ease my busy mind, balance my moods, form healthy relationships and develop a self-confidence that could carry me through. ​

I have spent years of study in the western medical system and alternative systems; yoga, meditation, energy transformation and life skills training to compile a unique viewpoint of and way out of the chronic stress cycle most of us are living in.

I have put these transformational tools to use over the course of my 13-plus year career as a medical speech pathologist, for my international business growth, to launch my first book to best-seller / multi-award-winner and, most joyfully, to cultivate a sense of peace and strength in myself along the way.

I have taught these tools to tens of thousands of people around the world who report the same effects I enjoy – simultaneous success in outward life achievements and self-care / actualization.

I have a passion for speaking to others in helping professions on how caregivers can care for themselves while doing what they love, adolescents and college student who are struggling with mental wellness and to leaders / creatives pushing their growing edge to go for the “impossibles” in their lives while enjoying more ease.

My mother always says, “Life is too short to stand in line and stare at the back of someone’s head.”

Life indeed is too short to not care for yourself, shy away from your dreams or just settle for what is. I truly believe we are all unique – we have singular viewpoints of the world, special gifts to offer and new paths to forge.

Consciousness development and life mastery are the final frontiers for trailblazers like you – what have you yet to explore? I would be delighted to assist you in that quest!
