1-Hour Motivational Talk

Laurie is also available for 1-hour motivational talks (either in-person or virtually) on using the GRIT® system.  This is not for the faint of heart- this is for people who want to get results! Maybe not exactly like John Wayne did in True Grit, but with GRIT® In today’s workplace, we need tough characters, with Generosity, Respect, Integrity, and Truth. It’s what’s missing at work – and in life!

Across all industries, no matter what size, no matter what generation - we’re all being forced to do more with less. Stop waiting and hoping for a quick fix. We’re not getting more resources, the situaltion isn’t going to fix itself, and someone’s not coming to save you!

GRIT® provides a foundation that inspires people to step up, take ownership, create solutions, and make things happen! Through the concept of generosity, more happens with less! Laurie helps us discover how to get our GRIT® together and create the foundation we need to transform our workplace into a productive and enjoyable environment; a place where people:
Get more done
Respect each other
Inspire creativity
Trust and communicate openly
"The Leading With GRIT® program uses concrete, real world examples, that will ensure attendees take time to refocus on GRIT principles. Laurie is a fantastic facilitator, she has a great sense of humor and an infectious, upbeat personality. I highly recommend Laurie for corporate training and professional development courses.
