“Lorenzo gets issues quickly and instinctively” I recently sought team-building assistance with Lorenzo for a small, new group of high achievers with extremely varied backgrounds and personalities. Lorenzo gets issues quickly and instinctively, allowing him to move to assessment and resolution. He worked with the entire team and individuals, and they reported how much they enjoyed the engagement. I see firsthand how the team works cohesively.

“Lorenzo got to the heart of important issues“ Lorenzo worked with our department on an all-staff retreat and got to the heart of the important issues that we were grappling with as an organization. One lasting effect is the basic idea of the ability of individuals, including myself, to show up differently at work and, by extension, the ability to tell people that they need to show up differently.

“Deep spiritual and mindful insights“ I chose to work with Lorenzo because of his energy and intentions—and the clear communications. I became very aware of my responsibilities in life. For example, why not me (to do this important thing)? And, leadership is not about power, but using authenticity to enroll others to join me. I was surprised by the deep spiritual and mindful insights I got from working with Lorenzo.

“Results are confidence and clarity” Lorenzo’s unique approach is simultaneously heart-centered, and action and results oriented. I trust him and feel comfortable being vulnerable with him. The results are confidence—in my abilities as a marketing professional, as a manager, and in my ability to expand my team and client base. And clarity—learning to assess my team members’ skills, play to their strengths, communicate clearly with them, and hold myself accountable.

“Our culture has changed” My goal is to create a work environment and culture centered on trust, accountability and effective communication. Lorenzo is an experienced executive leadership coach who understands the nuances of government work and knows how to support our team in creating a collaborative work environment. Our culture has changed and his support has allowed individuals to “unpack” items that were barriers to department success.
