The Lawrence Advisory Coaching Consortium Launched
October 14, 2022 – The Lawrence Advisory has launched The Lawrence Advisory Coaching Consortium (TLACC). “With this new venture, we are creating the industry’s most diverse team of highly accomplished and experienced executive coaches and leadership consultants,” The Lawrence Advisory said.
TLACC is founded on the principle that leadership and inclusion should not be treated as separate priorities, but as fully integrated components to a successful organizational culture. TLACC offers the spectrum of coaching and leadership consulting services.
“The launch of TLACC is intended to address the increasing demand for experienced executive coaches who can incorporate principles of inclusivity across all aspects of leadership coaching,” said CEO Tracy L. Lawrence, who is herself a prominent C-suite coach to Fortune 500 companies. “We are stepping in to fill a void that exists in the current leadership consulting industry.”
Experienced Search Firm
For over a decade, The Lawrence Advisory has provided advisory services to the business community with an approach that fully integrates a strategic approach, leadership expertise, and equity and inclusion. For 12 years, the firm has provided executive search, DEI consulting, and strategic advisory services to entertainment and media companies, Fortune 500 corporations, non-profits, and financial services firms.
The Lawrence Advisory is a Black woman-owned and managed firm. Ms. Lawrence developed an understanding that inclusion must be treated as a strategic priority across the entire organization. Her client work includes executive recruiting, executive coaching, competency management and leadership development, team building, enhancing executive presence, and conflict resolution. Prior to launching The Lawrence Advisory, she led the Los Angeles based consumer and entertainment practice at Russell Reynolds Associates. Previously, Ms. Lawrence served as general manager of Fox Family Channel, leading the cable network until its sale to The Walt Disney Company for more than five billion dollars, the largest price ever paid for a cable network.
“We believe that recruiting is ground zero for building and maintaining a strong, inclusive culture,” said Ms. Lawrence. “With this in mind, our experience and specialized process help us deliver customized solutions for your talent acquisition management goals. Though we offer tailored solutions in the areas of coaching, search, and strategic advisory, we are guided by the mantra of leadership first.”
The Lawrence Advisory recently assisted in the recruitment of Veronica Arteaga as the new CEO of the Exceptional Children’s Foundation. She will be only the 3rd CEO in the organization’s 76-year history. “We are delighted to welcome Veronica to ECF,” said ECF board of directors chair Steve Beltran. “She is a passionate, innovative leader with a collaborative approach and a track record of strategic success in organizational systems and service delivery. We look forward to the contributions of her leadership in the ongoing service and impact of our founding mission.”
Ms. Arteaga brings more than 15 years of experience leading and providing social services, having previously served as chief program officer for Wayfinder Family Services, and vice president, housing programs for St. Anne’s Family Services in Los Angeles.
