NEW Speaking Mastery Circles

If you crave more aliveness and impact, whether you’re a professional or an aspiring speaker, practicing in a safe and sacred space in community with others is vital.
I’m excited to announce that I will now be offering Speaking Mastery Circles once a month. Speaking Mastery Circlesv4.png

Speaking Mastery Circles are ideal for change-makers (teachers, leaders, entrepreneurs, thought leaders) who want to do more than communicate – who want to MOVE people – every time they speak.

  • Go beyond your comfort zone into your charisma zone
  • Embody and convey confidence and authority … anytime, anywhere
  • Feel grounded, vibrant and in flow while evoking transformation in your audience

You will be able to do more than communicate clearly and articulately.
You will be able to unleash your innate, unique charisma and to move people
– to laughter, to tears or to action.

Each Circle is limited to 12 participants. Every circle will be a unique experience including some interactive group exercises as well as “front of room” coaching.
If you refer a friend who is new to me and Voice Matters, you get in for free.
*Early bird ends Friday October 26 at 11:59pm pst

$1 Video Lesson: Embody What’s Important

If we’ve spent our lives habitually engaging with the world from A (Avoid) or C (Control) it can take some conscious time and practice to shift our patterns – particularly during heightened moments – the ones that matter to us. A Lot. The more something matters, the more tempted we may be to hide in A or attempt to force things from C

Learn what’s getting in the way of you engaging from B and how to shift yourself into B in order to feel and convey confidence & authority anytime, anywhere – from the Bedroom to the Boardroom to the TED Talks Stage.

Regularly part of a $300 course. Yours now for $1.


OWN YOUR STORY Program - Beginning December 8th

This transformational program
is for teachers, coaches, and entrepreneurs
on a mission to create change by serving others.

Are you feeling called to come out of hiding in order to serve others in a bigger way?

We are hard-wired to tell our stories. We also have a deep hunger to hear others’ stories. once-upon-a-time-719174_1920.jpg

This need to tell and listen to stories is part of being human. From the time we lived in caves all the way through to modern day technology of Facebook and podcasts, to be human has meant telling our stories.

It’s how we heal, connect, learn, and grow.

Your Voice Matters. Your Story Matters.

When it comes to improving your speaking, your “work” is intuitive and internal … and yet you are not alone when doing it. The growth must happen in the presence of others. My job is to witness and hold safe, sacred space as you transform – shedding your old skin in order to reveal the deeper you that has been waiting to emerge.
 – Lauri Smith

“With her ‘Vocal Presence – Find Your Voice’ workshop, Lauri displayed world class professionalism, polish and focus. Our participants were blown away.  She capitalized on every moment for each participant to have a powerful experience and to come away with a unique set of tools.  By the end of the workshop the participants expressed themselves in heightened situations using their individual, authentic Leadership voices. To this date, many of the participants are still talking about the workshop as it has made a difference in their professional and personal lives.”

Lauri is available as The Empowering Warm Up Act as well as for Keynote Speeches. Imagine a conference in which everyone is “tapped-in” to their full potential and on purpose while engaging with others as their best Selves. With Lauri kicking things off, that vision will be your reality.

Executive Coaching

Great leadership happens from the inside-out. Leaders need to grow themselves in order to maximize their impact, inspire excellence and achieve key goals. With her Executive Coaching packages, Lauri helps leaders and key team members realize their full potential. Many of Lauri’s Executive Coaching clients are focused on developing their Executive Presence while reaching higher levels within the organization. Using the principles of Co-Active Coaching as well as Lauri’s own Vocal Presence Path™, Lauri helps clients identify their unique strengths and gifts while walking the path of growth.

Executive Presence Workshops

Executive Presence is not optional. It’s no longer enough to communicate effectivelyleaders need to be able to influence, motivate, and inspire their collaborators and teams. It’s not (just) what you say, it’s how you say it. Imagine Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a Dream” speech. Now imagine that, instead of those words being spoken by Dr. King, that speech is being delivered by Richard Nixon …

Even though the words are the same, Nixon’s impact pales in comparison. Weaving together her extensive experience in the fields of theatre, leadership, speaking, voice work and mindfulness, Lauri can help your key team members access their innate, unique charisma in order to enroll others in their cause.

Creative Leadership: Team Building, Communication, and Collaboration Workshops

In today’s world, the only constant is change. What worked last year, last month, or last week probably won’t work today. In order to compete, employees need to adapt creatively and quickly – and teams need to work together in an efficient, collaborative way. During this workshop participants will discover what blocks their creativity. They’ll also learn how to focus on their vision for success while collaborating with others. From this interactive session, attendees will walk away with an experiential, embodied understanding of creativity and it’s opposite (resistance).

Assertiveness for Women Leaders Workshops

Women today are often told “You’re too aggressive, but still be assertive.” It’s tempting to write that feedback off as an impossible target to hit. It can feel like an unfair standard. However, there is an important difference between assertiveness and aggressiveness. With her assertiveness for women leaders workshops, Lauri will help your employees discover and hit that target.
