Transforming the way you live & lead with

awareness, alignment
& action

Hi, I’m Lori Schwanbeck

My personal mission is to help create the conditions that support increased engagement, purpose and compassion in the world.

Utilizing evidence-based practices and skill building, I have developed and facilitate experiential programs where the competencies of mindfulness, emotional intelligence, growth mindset, compassion, resilience and social skills are learned through engaging interactive exercises.

As a leadership coach and business consultant, I have traveled the world from Bhutan to Boston, Australia to Amsterdam, teaching, and learning about the conditions that support human flourishing.

In executive offices, classrooms, government ministries and my psychotherapy office, most people I work with want to increase their well-being, feel a sense of meaning, and have satisfying relationships.

However, I also see the reality of disconnection, distraction, and burn-out that so many experience.

Together, we can bridge this gap and create workplaces where people don’t just survive, but thrive. When systems of compassion, conscious communication, and connection are built into the culture, both people, and organizations, flourish.
