Leading With Humor & Impact: 4 Languages of Great Leadership

LB’s energy and passion for the craft is palpable. It drove me to get excited about what my future holds. My SINGLE best investment of 2023. A-FREAKING-PLUS for Practical Dramatics!!!

CEO, The Thrive Point

Working with LB was so much more than I expected. She knows how to take her clients on a journey from small steps to giant leaps in learning how to speak in front of others, craft a talk, and add the extra support necessary to be the emotional support for all the stages in between. She's intelligent and funny and knows when to be gentle and when to be fierce in her support and criticism. My TEDx talk wouldn't be the same without her guidance.
