It was clear that she was listening

Lori Hoene came along when I was lost. Completely lost. I lost my job when I was close to retirement but not quite ready. And just as bad, I was confused about what I wanted out of life in general. I remember her asking me, what do you want? What do you love? I had no idea to either of those questions. That’s what she had to work with. A mess.  Lori reached down and pulled me from the abyss. She met with me faithfully every week, on time, and always prepared. It was clear that she was listening to me, sometimes recalling things I had said that even I had forgotten. She takes notes.  She guides you. She does not tell you what to do but enables you through thoughtful queries to discover who you are and what you are all about, and perhaps more importantly for me, I was then able to know where I wanted to go. After a few weeks I felt like I was facing my fears (she has a knack for making you do this) and then I began to know what I wanted and loved.  Oh, and she is super smart. She has done the work needed to help people like you and me. I needed help with getting on with my life business-wise and on a personal level. I think the work we did together helped with both. Money well spent. In my opinion, everyone needs a coach. If you want to help yourself and are willing to do the work, Lori is an excellent guide.

Very Insightful

Over the past few months I have had the opportunity to work with Lori Hoene as my coach. Lori’s approach to coaching had a very engaging impact for me. Her range of knowledge and experience were evident in the way she created an environment of inquiry that led to very pragmatic self-discovery for me. She was disciplined about the schedule and well prepared. Lori did an amazing job of maintaining the focus on me and was able to connect very quickly to the issue(s) at hand. Her guidance and navigation as a coach was very insightful and many times led me to discover, analyze and devise solutions quickly and effectively. Overall, I had a very positive experience and was able to walk away with an enriched sense of self-awareness and consciousness as it related to the way I think, feel, and act across a diverse range of business situations.  — Sincerely, Rajan Nagaarajan

It Was A Great Experience

Lori coached me for 3 months and it was a great experience. She is an exceptional intuitional listener, often shocking me with her insights into my emotions that I did not think I had expressed in my voice. Using this incredible listening gift, she guided me to much higher levels of self-awareness than I would have achieved on my own.

Lori Is A Pleasure To Work With

As a prior airborne infantryman, small business is not my strong point. Lori was the missing puzzle piece when it came to establishing and laying the foundation of Hoosier Hills Hatcheries LLC. She has put forth a viable effort to ensure the success of my business without regard to her own personal time. Her selflessness and vast knowledge of small business have far surpassed my expectations. Lori is a pleasure to work with and has energetically met the needs of my business. From my experience a person could and should expect from Lori a great deal of respect, experience and knowledge. However, the best quality trait from Lori (in my opinion) is her willingness to tell you what you need to hear verse what you want to hear. I look forward to doing business with Lori in the future as HHH continues to grow, and in future business adventures.

Talking With Lori Is Talking With A Best Friend

Talking with Lori is talking with a best friend. There is no judgement and she’ll tell you how it is so the old you doesn’t hold back the new you. She facilitates the conversation in a way that allows it to go the direction it’s meant to go. One thing I enjoy most about my conversations with Lori is the overwhelming feeling that she already knows how great someone is but the way she asks questions helps a person realize this on their own. She’s never pushed me to believe one way or the other but rather offers insights and perspectives that help increase my own understanding of what I believe and who I am, not only for myself but for others. She has no problem asking the difficult questions because it’s often the difficult questions that release the most healing answers. If you want to be your best, I truly believe Lori has passion for helping you reach your goals and power through your challenges.

She Has A Wealth of Knowledge To Share

Lori presented a session that focused on understanding oneself and how our thoughts and perceptions create our reality at our annual PhD student retreat. Lori is a dynamic presenter and comments from our students included: *this session reminded me of how important it is to have a positive attitude and outlook when I begin the dissertation phase. *One of my favorite sessions at the retreat was Ms. Hoene’s you leading you through the PhD process. Ms. Hoene’s you leading you session was such a great reminder that we need to sometimes step away from the task and focus on our attitude. We reflected on how our thoughts can become a self-fulling prophecy. This is something we know, but do not often practice. I left her session feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Not only would I recommend Lori, but I would ask her to present on another topic at one of our retreats. She has a wealth of knowledge to share.
