In a direct and non-judgmental style, she is adept at asking powerful questions that expand my thinking about the problem, including how I am perceiving it and how I am currently responding to it.

Some of my greatest personal discoveries and my most valuable life lessons were uncovered while coaching with Lauren Hammer. When I started working with Lauren in 2011 it came at time when I was overwhelmed and depressed as I cared for three small children, managed all that comes with marrying into a fifth-generation family business and (eventually) starting my yoga business. Lauren helped me uncover ways to look at my circumstances that helped put me in control of my own life. Maybe for the first time. I have evolved in ways I never thought possible. I am still evolving with her gentle and firm approach to human growth. She is wicked smart and has the keys to all of the “aha” moments. She is a gift. More»
“Lauren Hammer’s Making It Work online coaching group sessions were excellent. She really helped me focus on thinking differently about my everyday situations and provided a solid framework for starting to make changes. I highly recommend her coaching groups to anyone that is not sure about coaching and thinks they might want to get out of their comfort zone just a little bit before fully committing. I’m looking forward to working with her in the future.”
“During my time between jobs, I stepped outside my comfort zone to participate in Lauren Hammer’s coaching program Making It Work. Lauren gently pushed me and other group members to look within and explore what has been holding us back. For me, this process has encouraged both personal and professional growth. Lauren’s guidance helped me identify and move past barriers I’ve experienced in marketing my own personal brand. Not only was it a wise business decision, it also felt like an act of self-care.”
“I recently had the pleasure of attending Lauren Hammer’s highly interactive 4-session workshop Making It Work, along with other senior level executives. A diverse background made the group even more dynamic and lively.
Lauren offered guidance and insight to help participants learn what it takes to keep your life in balance no matter the challenge, be it personal, familial or professional, thus Making it Work.
The workshop was extremely timely and on-point, particularly the discussions about challenges generated by outside forces such as the coronavirus.
Lauren’s skills were instrumental guiding each of us to create, understand and share personal attitudes, values and feelings needed to resolve day-to-day situations. I encourage any senior business leader or manager to take time to participate, become introspective and develop individualized action plans to deal with their current life situation(s).”
