What People Are Saying About Me

Karen Thomas

Laura challenged me to stretch beyond my comfort zone to achieve my goals. She helped me to see what next steps I could take to keep moving forward and was very encouraging to me. I really looked forward to our sessions, and I made far more progress than I would have without her support. Thanks, Laura!

Emmanuel Adelekun

If you need direction or clarity on your next career move in life, or to understand what connects your passions and how to bring them together, Laura will definitely provided you with amazingly-valuable insight and advice. She genuinely wants to see you reach the places you want to be.

Stever Robbins

Laura brings a clarity and insight to her coaching that is profoundly impactful. She not only knows how to ask the questions that break through career roadblocks, but she listens in a way that uncovers why and where you’re stuck. Twice during my career, coaching with her has been instrumental in my choosing my Next Big Thing.

Kristen M.

Laura is truly talented and getting right to the heart of a problem or limiting belief, uncovering it, and then helping you come up with a solution. In 45 minutes, I discovered that I don’t have to recreate the wheel. I can repackage things I am already doing and offer it as a monthly subscription. This idea is exciting to me and re-energized my focus on my practice!

Alex Morgan

Laura saw who I was! My thoughts were so clouded in confusion, but Laura revealed things about me that I would have never thought about. She did this just from reading my Life History. In our first meeting, I was so moved by her talent in revealing the essence of my dream that I started crying with joy! And I am not one to cry at all. I highly recommend the path I took: get the book and take one-on-one coaching sessions with Laura. Both avenues complement each other and will steer you toward finding “who” you are built to be.

Nariah Broadus, Director for Innovation and Growth, Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth

After attending a group workshop with Laura I had great insights about myself, but I felt like there was more work to do. I just couldn’t identify my purpose and I felt like I was going down many roads–all of which felt not quite right. Over three months Laura kept me focused and motivated on my goals. She encouraged me to advocate for myself, to recognize that I could get what I wanted (and needed), and to not settle. I found her to be funny and charismatic, but what I loved was that she helped me see the thru-line for my work–for who I am. Discovering this has made things click in a way they haven’t before. Now, I have a map to my life and career and I see myself reflected in the professional choices I’m making.

Scott Sargent, quick-service restaurant industry

Knowing what you do everyday is easy; knowing who you truly are takes some digging. Laura is a master at teaching others how to “dig”. Laura worked alongside me to show me how to look past what I’ve learned to do well and discover who I am at my core; to discover my essence. This kind of self-knowledge and awareness has set me on a completely different path in life. I know who I am now and what ignites the passion inside of me and I won’t quit reaching for it…I cant! Thank you Laura!!!

MJ Range, Palm Beach, FL

When I started to work with Laura to build my executive search practice, I was a novice at marketing myself, PR and most of all organizing my work week. A year later, not only had I exceeded my goals, I was ready to double them. After two years, I had achieved everything on my dream list including a house with a garden. Now, happily retired, I continue to thank her for my success and my wonderful lifestyle.

Brigid Siegel, pharma executive

I have truly made it to the center of the international stage in my field and I have you to thank for all of the great coaching!

Lisa Anselmo, Author and travel show host, My (Part-Time) Paris Life

Laura Berman Fortgang’s coaching brought clarity at a time when every thought in my head ended with a question mark. Sure, I was unhappy, stymied in my formerly satisfying career, but now what? What was my new career to be? What was my passion? And how would I make money? Paralyzed by fear and dread, I spun in place for nearly a year until I made the call that would change my life. Laura’s coaching program is focused and structured, and with each week of exercises and sessions, I could see the clouds lifting. In only six weeks, I gained a clearer sense of who I was, how I had been in my own way, and most importantly, what I was meant for. Laura’s way of working points you to your True North; guiding you to the answers that are already inside you, drawing them out, and turning them into an action plan. The best investment I ever made in myself. Ever.
