Lori's coaching and consulting clients have this to say....
"Lori Pannell is a talented and insightful executive coach, and someone who has had an important impact on my professional development. As just one example, when I ascended from mid-management to executive ranks, Lori worked with me to develop an action plan following the completion of a 360-degree feedback instrument. She challenged me to become someone who strives not only to lead, but to develop other leaders. This simple challenge to leave a different legacy profoundly affected my thinking and behavior."
- President and CEO, independent energy company
"I lead a large and diverse team (over 100) with a wide range of experience levels. Lori Pannell was a person that I discussed issues and concerns with on a regular basis. Lori had a unique ability to see things from different sides and frequently challenged me to see things in another way. Lori has a direct and open style and is very capable of having the real conversation that is sometimes needed to progress an issue. Lori is someone that I intend to stay connected with as I value her insight into leadership challenges for large and small organizations."
- Technical Director, major energy company
" I found a great listener in Lori. Through our discussions, which often were based on inquiry and reflection, she was able to guide my progress along and help me improve my leadership skills not by setting directions but by leading me through new thought processes. I was able to share my goals with an interested, supportive person and was able to verbalize and reflect concerns, using her listening skills as a sounding board. She was always willing to give honest feedback and to highlight barriers and obstacles from different perspectives. This would give me the opportunity to think processes through to come up with my own, best fitting solutions. The discussions were productive, had practical outcomes and made me feel successful in the groups and my personal endeavors."
