Lauren Ann Schieffer grew up military, in an Air Force family, “hitting the road” to a new station every couple of years. This imbued her with incredible people skills, a profound in-dependence and the ability to adapt to changing circumstances.

Lauren’s professional path began behind a receptionist desk at a moving company. Thankful for the work but not satisfied with the growth potential, she built an independent business with the world’s leading cosmetic company where she rose to the top two percent of the company’s management force while recruiting, mentoring and inspiring countless women to create their own version of success.

Unfortunately, she has also walked some very dark and scary roads in her lifetime. She has waged battle with and recovered from eating disorders. In addition, Lauren has sur-vived not one, but two sexual assaults. Lauren’s life journey has brought her to the conclu-sion that what happens to you in your life is not as important as how you choose to respond to what happens to you in your life.

Now, as a recognized expert on respectful conflict management, and the driving force be-hind High Road communication, Lauren has inspired tens of thousands of people nation-ally and internationally to shake off mediocrity and aspire to excellence and personal influ-ence.

Lauren’s book, Road Signs on the High Road of Life has been listed by LifeStyles Maga-zine in their top ten Best-of for Corporate Gift Giving and is recommended by multiple treatment facilities across the country as a “must-read” for those in recovery.

Lauren leads by example because she simply refuses to place limits on herself. She shows others how to expand their comfort zones to achieve personal and professional fulfillment. She has a passion for guiding others – women, men, executives, managers, employees and entrepre-neurs alike – in their quest to pass through good and grasp great; to pass beyond survival and into triumph.

She also makes sure to have some fun along the way – because if you can’t have a little fun along the road, why travel it at all?

Why settle for being successful when you can choose to be SIGNIFICANT? It’s not about how much money you make. It’s about how many lives you touch and the manner you choose to impact them. ...more
Why settle for being successful when you can choose to be SIGNIFICANT? It’s not about how much money you make. It’s about how many lives you touch and the manner you choose to impact them. Because, how we impact others is a CHOICE. Significance is about making every part of the world you touch better for having interacted with you. It’s about creating a lasting impact and a positive legacy. You don’t have to change the world – only the world around you. In this humorous and engaging keynote, master storyteller Lauren Schieffer will highlight keys to creating that lasting impact for yourself. Finding Significance is an eye-opening presentation that will lift you to a richer, more transcendent vantage from which you can discover a deeper, more rewarding definition of influence. ...less
Taking a Higher View: The Key to Seeing Possibilities, Not Limitations

On your life’s journey, you will encounter balcony people and you will encounter basement people. Both have value and deserve to be treated with respect, and yet there is fundamental difference in how each looks at the world, their tasks and the people they work with. Balcony people take a Higher View. They are perpetual optimists, who believe that you can do anything, if you believe you can and are willing to put in the effort. From a higher view, you see possibilities rather than limitations. Balcony people inspire and empower others to reach farther and achieve more. In this entertaining, humorous and inspiring keynote, master storyteller Lauren Schieffer shares her insights on and the benefits of living a life as a balcony per- son, staying positive, working with and (sometimes around) basement people – and how YOU can do the same! ...less

The greatest hindrance to growth in any organization, or in any individual career is poor communication, both up and down the ladder. In today's highly charged and divisive environment, saying the wrong thing (or the right thing in the wrong way!) can make or break a conversation. Most people are promoted (or not) based on how they relate to others, and so many projects fail because of lack of – or poor communication. This engaging and interactive program gives you the skills you need to get results. It steeps down the core competencies of impactful, respectful communication and leaves you understanding how to respectfully get things done. ...less

Leadership - it Starts With YOU! How to Lead on a Daily Basis With or Without a Title

Is your organization suffering from low morale, lack of vision, drama or a lack of accountability? All of these are signs of a crack in leadership at some level. Even if it’s not in the C-Suite, poor leadership at any level in the organization can be a pothole to the organization’s mission. While every industry has its systems and procedures (which may change over time), the CORE concepts of significant leadership are evergreen. The bottom- line results of reduced attrition, increased productivity, increased customer sat- isfaction and increased profitability will take care of themselves if you drive the higher level, essential concepts of Internal Leadership. In this humorous and engaging program, master storyteller Lauren Schieffer equips you with the foundational concepts and skills you need to lead on a daily basis, whether you hold a leadership title or not. ...less
Stop the Blame Game! Creating Team Accountability

Any team, whether it’s in healthcare, sales, customer service, operations or administration, is only as strong as its weakest link. If any member of the team is not accountable and fails to follow through on commitments, the entire team suffers. Very few people set out to not be accountable. Usually it is the result of a couple of key issues that, when resolved, can change the entire function- ality of the organization. Accountability is not just a popular buzz-word. It’s a mind-set and a skill-set that can be learned and practiced until it becomes a discipline and then a character trait. This program gives you the tools you need to create an environment wherein everyone on the team trusts when a commitment is made, there will be follow through. ...less
