I’M LAUREN

Over the last 15 years, I have navigated the challenging waters being a high-achieving business woman  and single mother of three. I have served as general counsel of many companies.  I currently serve as Chief legal officer and data protection officer for Workhuman, a company leading the employee appreciation revolution.

Showing up with authenticity and owning everything that I am as a female leader, was the key to my success.

and you can do it too.

Strategic Leader.

Forbes Contributor.

Mother.

It doesn’t have to be lonely at the top. You have found an ally in me. Let’s create something together. It is time to elevate!

but it’s time to

stop

playing

nice.

We won’t see a more feminine approach represented in leadership until we as women dare to take inspired action. We must put real, tangible, action plans into place and make good decisions timely. We are not just dreamers, we are over-comers. The time is now!

It’s time to step into our true power, refuse to play small, and

Having it all,

owning it all

“I already know that” is the most dangerous statement you can make. A remarkable leader is someone who is continually seeking knowledge and growth.

It instills you to be knowledgeable, trustworthy, and reliable.

I try hard to teach my children the value of authenticity.

Authenticity is key in any relationship. If you want to be truly happy and successful, you must get real.

Are you living in your truth?

Balance is the key to our health, success, and social life.

It provokes a satisfaction of existence, the point from which we manage stress, but most importantly: balance is the space for using all our internal resources and potential.

How can you create more balance in your life?

Women persist and continue to prove that when they lead, they bring transformative changes to entire communities and the world at large. This is the golden age for women in leadership. We have heads of state, CEOs, executives, entrepreneurs, and nonprofit leaders that are all shaping the world. We must continue to support and continue to invest.

What impact do you think more women leaders have had on our world?

Every leader should know how to lose. Failure is not something they teach you in school; it is something life teaches you.

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader who is helping others advance toward their personal goals with your experience.

They use to, but then the enemy attacked me through love ones, but still continues to use me to give others hope, to help and give, to warn and educate; but mainly to love and encourage others. Sadly the Devil will come against you, but God stands with you. Thank you Lord.

Aren’t very many LEADERS anymore

Women can be so powerful when they join forces, rather than seeing other women as competition or a threat to you it's so important to realize that we all have common goals, are all equal and all deserve each other's support. ... See MoreSee Less
