Weiss

Principal

Laura Weiss helps individual leaders and their teams engage in productive and fulfilling conversations that drive successful innovation initiatives, business decisions, and personal journeys.

Laura’s own professional journey began as a licensed architect and Associate Partner at one of the world’s most celebrated design consultancies. Her expertise in leadership developed organically through the creation and delivery of highly collaborative, discovery-driven innovation programs for Fortune 50 clients and through the design of original learning experiences for high-potential leaders and teams in the private, social, and public sectors.

An insatiable curiosity about why and how innovation succeeds (or not) led to further professional development as a coach, mediator, and facilitator. In addition, Laura has been an Adjunct Professor in graduate programs at both the California College of the Arts and Yale University.

Laura holds a B.Arch. with honors from Cornell University, an M.Arch. from Yale University, an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management. 

A lifelong learner, she has also earned a Professional Certificate in Mediation and Applied Conflict Studies from Champlain College in Burlington, VT, a CPCC (Certified Professional Co-Active Coach) credential through the Coactive Training Institute and is a PCC (Professional Certified Coach) with The International Coaching Federation.
