Global Workforce Transformation, Paving the trail to the future.

Pioneer of an Online Learning Experience that leverages filmmaking sensibilities, stories, coaching and learning touchpoints spaced over time that creates real change.

Laura’s signature work is Seeing Red Cars, a Mindset for Change

“You get more of whatever it is that you focus on."

Say you buy a red car and drive it off the lot, what do you notice? More red cars. You notice more red cars because that is what you are focused on. So if you have awareness of what you are focusing on, you get more of it. This isn’t another positive attitude program. It is a process which creates awareness of our unconscious focus of fear and what we are trying to avoid and then establishes the mindset on positive outcomes, innovation and change.

Seeing Red Cars has lead to an Online Learning Experience and Laura is a Pioneer in this process that leverages filmmaking sensibilities, stories, coaching and learning touchpoints spaced over time that creates real change.

Speaking and Seminar Topics

A Mindset for Change: Seeing Red Cars

Based on the content of her award-winning video and book, Seeing Red Cars, Laura delves into the underlining forces that get in the way of creating change in the workplace. Throughout her presentation, participants learn how to rewire their brain by focusing on their wants rather than what they would like to avoid. Laura describes how to create triggers that enable participants to create thoughts, actions, and behaviors that align with future goals, creating an environment for change. Laura captures participant’s attention with stories that create a new way of thinking, while incorporating theatrical elements that allow her to truly interact with the audience.

Are You Relevant?

Within the next decade, eight of ten people working now will be irrelevant. The global workforce is changing drastically. Few industries and individuals will be exempt. You can’t avoid it, and it’s fatal to ignore it.

But fear is no way to address change. You have to find the positive outcome.

That’s why Laura Goodrich is so refreshing…and effective. Her message is startling and difficult to hear but her approach is compelling, hopeful and inspirational at the same time. While many speakers strike fear into audiences about problems impacting the changing business landscape, Laura offers real-world solutions with positive impact…in a refreshing and inspiring way.

Workplace Dynamics, Change, and the Future of Work

“Business as usual" is a thing of the past. As marketplaces change faster than ever, successful organizations will be those that are able to leverage their strengths and better understand their markets. Drawing on more than fifteen years of coaching, including experience advising companies undergoing significant change, Laura highlights the importance of “supporters” in this process, as well as the need for leaders to understand how to motivate and engage their teams in this new norm. Participants will learn ways to remain relevant and ready to capitalize on opportunities in environments of dynamic change.

Driving it Home - A Participatory Culture Solution

You have a strategic priority and its success is critical.  The trouble is, day to day responsibilities consume your people’s time and create an unclear picture about where your organization is going and why it is so important. You need to bring your vision and priorities to life and help your employees contribute to its success. Laura points out what obstacles are getting in the way and what actions it will take to create a sightline to your strategic priorities and vision. You’ll learn the power of storytelling, workforce collaboration, peer to peer influence, spacing learning over time and observe how technology can help you do this.
