    Coaching with Laura is enormously professional and yet totally personal. She is genuinely interested and invested in me and my future. She is always honest and to the point without being judgmental. In less than a year Laura has helped me build a coaching practice and fill it with clients.

    Having Laura as my coach was all about having perspective. I had been tying myself up in knots, over-thinking and worrying about the career choices I had before me. Laura helped me make the decision to go to Africa to pursue my dream of tracking. I was like a mouse, very good at getting work done but too close to the ground to see the bigger picture. What I needed, and what I got, was an eagle’s perspective. I also have every confidence that if I needed to get my head out of the clouds and get down to details, that Laura’s coaching would bring me the mouse’s perspective just as easily. I admire how Laura can be flexible to meet her clients’ needs, while at the same time maintaining boundaries for herself and being a model for that. It’s obvious that she is passionate about coaching, that she is continually learning more in order to bring more to her clients.

    Laura Burkey is a Professional Coach who “practices what she preaches”. She is first and foremost honest, respectful, generous and trustworthy — all the traits one desires to be. This motivates her clients by setting an example. This incredible person she is, combined with her deep insight into core issues and her impeccable listening skills, makes for the most outstanding coach. As a client of hers, I trust her with my life. Beyond her skills as personal coach, I also see Laura as an innovative leader in her field. I was fortunate to have worked with Laura during the initial development stages of the Coach Masters Skill Group web site as designer. During the time I worked with her, I was impressed by her ability to clearly articulate a process for developing a progression of skills to excel in the profession, and then by her success in galvanizing other peer coaches to collaborate in building their coaching skills together. Laura is constantly involved in innovative ways of advancing her profession, and is clearly one of the leaders in her field.

    “From the deepest part of my awareness I have been asking for change. The kind of change that frees up my energy, allowing me to take action for the purpose of a more vibrant, creative and happy life. Well, this is exactly what is happening, I have Laura Burkey as my coach and her listening power, intuitiveness, intelligence, humor and love of another soul (me) is literally emerging. I wish this kind of relationship for everyone.”
