“their knowledge and insight have been invaluable…”

“Bold Font has been a great business partner for Xanterra over the past year.  Our relationship continues to expand and strengthen due to Bold Font’s depth of services and agility to our organizational needs.  We have partnered with Lauran and her team on several projects including performance management and coaching & team development. Their knowledge and insight have been invaluable in strengthening our employee culture and effectiveness.”

“her style resonates perfectly with the dynamics of my very diverse group…”

“It has been my pleasure to have Bold Font Coaching and Lauran Arledge work with both me and my entire management team on several topics from properly interviewing new candidates to handling critical conversations to general leadership training. Her style resonates perfectly with the dynamics of my very diverse group of Managers and Directors. She easily grasps the issues we are wrestling with and provides solid, actionable coaching and guidance to the entire group. She puts her audience at ease with grace and humor and is a true gem to have as part of the conversation. We certainly plan to tap into this great resource whenever possible!”

"Much of the leadership team at our Inc. 500 small business, including myself, are young in our careers and lack extensive management experience - none of us has more than 10 years experience leading teams of full-time staff, and most have fewer than five.  Lauran is and has been very valuable in guiding our team through many of the day-to-day communication and organizational challenges faced by our fast-growing company. We worked with Lauran for the six months March 2018 through September 2018 (present) and, partially thanks to Lauran's help, find ourselves in a place where we've got the right people in the right seats, doing the right things. Traffic to our website is up, revenue is up, and we see far less employee turnover. It goes without saying that we plan to continue our relationship. Thank you Lauran!"

“The work we did in a very short amount of time helped me take on a new leadership role within my company…”

“I’m a marketing professional, so I may be accused of existing in a constant state of hyperbole, but working with Lauran has truly been a life-changing experience for me. Her philosophy that the personal and professional are intertwined has helped me approach daily issues on a completely different level. The work we did in a very short amount of time helped me take on a new leadership role within my company, and she continues to help me develop and grow as a professional, a mom, a friend, and a community member. I see opportunity where I once saw challenge. I see capability where I once saw limitation. I see clarity of purpose where I once saw chaos and confusion. I am definitely a more effective and empathetic leader because of the work we have done.“

“Lauran truly takes a partnership-oriented approach to coaching…”

“Working with Lauran has been my first experience with executive coaching.  Lauran is exceptionally personable, actively engaged in our coaching sessions and has made a connection and effort to understand the scope of my job.  She has helped me to drive improved inner perspective about what really matters – in turn, I’m able to translate that into being a better leader and manager for my team.  I appreciate Lauran’s candor and the way she gives me feedback in a constructive way.  Lauran truly takes a partnership-oriented approach to coaching and I really value my time with her each week.”
