Loriana helped me understand what my organization thinks and feels, and guided me in crafting a new leadership approach. Even though I had previous experience, she opened my eyes to leadership qualities I had ignored and enhanced my effectiveness in very little time.

Working with Loriana has created the clarity and direction I’ve been seeking, and so much more. Via a thorough feedback process and her spot-on advice, she has helped me see how to maximize my strengths to achieve more and identify the opportunities to advance my skills and capabilities. Our work together is strategic and thoughtful, which I totally appreciate. Her guidance transcends work, and is helping me grow professionally and personally – it’s not about not work/life balance, but my operating rhythm. It’s hard for me to explain just how much I’ve gotten out of our sessions … I feel like she is genuinely invested in my success, and I am so grateful for the time she has spent with me architecting the future I want and figuring out the steps to get there.

Loriana not only uses innovative tools to promote one’s strengths, she does so in an encouraging and compassionate manner.  In addition to helping me to create a plan of action, Loriana gave me permission to embrace who I am while making adjustments to my style in order to become more personally and professionally effective. That is a gift.


I’ve seen your grad students before and then after the Preparing Tomorrow’s Leaders for Science experience…it is transformational. I didn’t think that you could teach people to be leaders. They either are or aren’t.  But, your program has completely changed my mind about that.

I reached out to Loriana to help me review my true strengths, so that I could capitalize on those when working with tough situations as an HR professional. I wish I had met Loriana 30 years ago when I was first establishing a foundation for my career. Her insight has been invaluable.

I have a better understanding of my strengths, which is helping me be a better consultant. For my husband’s birthday, I gave him the opportunity to take the Strength Finder test and meet several times with Loriana to understand how to apply them. Now, as President, he’s learning how to compliment his strengths with his leadership team.

It is very exciting to work with Loriana. She is dedicated, enthusiastic and knows her “stuff”.  Working with her has been a win-win for both of us.

Marketing Communications Strategist, University of Missouri
I want to personally thank you for helping me become more effective as a leader. Early in the process I became very engaged and was able to let my guard down to discover really strong connections between my personality type and actions I take. The flexibility and understanding that I acquired allowed me to create stronger and clearer communication between my team which ultimately resulted in more energy, more positive outlooks, and better overall performance on theirs and my end both. It didn’t simply benefit me at work it also impacted me personally and gave me strategies and techniques that I can use regardless of if I’m at work or home. I thoroughly enjoyed the process and diving into what would ultimately bring me more joy in my job.
Thanks for everything,

Working with BONSAI and Loriana as my coach and weekly point of accountability has totally boosted my confidence and, pardon the technical term, efficacy, for reaching out for bigger and more compatible projects for Buzzbold.  I need outside perspectives on both the business details, so having a partner I can trust to offer candid and constructive feedback along the way is something I can’t believe I ever considered going without.

I’m proud that I’m a good fit for BONSAI, and I am incredibly excited to see the new increases in revenue and internal stability that are directly related to Loriana’s impact. Thank you, BONSAI!
