Coaching and Mentoring
“Laura Soparlo is a visionary leader who motivates and guides others to lead themselves. I met Laura through the SIHL program first as a student, then as a coach. She is skilled at seeing the potential in people and then giving them the confidence to act on it. Because of her guidance and encouragement, I had the courage to apply for the Master of Arts in Leadership online studies through RRU. I was accepted and at 60 years old, am now pursuing that dream! Laura is not only supportive in personal development and lifelong learning, but very efficient and knowledgeable in many aspects of leadership learning – team building, systems thinking, conflict and collaboration.”
Mary Rose Kulyk, Saskatchewan Institute of Health Leadership (SIHL)
” After one year of coaching with Laura my attitude about myself, my career and leadership style has shifted 180 degrees. She has been an exemplary professional coach. Her insights and direction are always on target. She is able to strike a unique balance of careful listening with sharing her wealth of experience and ideas. I feel very supported and championed in the attainment of my personal and professional goals. She has been a vital resource to me and I look forward to our continuing relationship”
