What I Do  


Professional Experience

Garnett Consulting

Owner

Jan 2009 - Present
Most of us have an idea of what we are good at, but very few deeply understand their specific genius and reason for fulfillment — their Zone of Genius. When you unlock these insights and put the right habits in place, exceptional performance is not only within reach — it's nearly guaranteed. Operating in your Zone of Genius can be strategically leveraged to increase productivity and engagement. Laura specializes in helping her clients do exactly this through her proprietary methodology, The Genius Habit and her proprietary tool, the Performance Tracker. The process helps clients identify how other people experience the impact of their work and natural gifts and strengths. It helps pinpoint exactly what makes each of us a valuable asset to our company. Participants can expect to feel inspired, proactive, confident, and motivated by the gifts they naturally bring to the table. They will understand how to create performance that is not only beneficial for themselves but also for their organization.
