Laurence Monnery’s passion is to help leaders be the best they can be. After 10 years in corporate roles followed by 20 years at Egon Zehnder working with senior leaders across countries and organisations, she is convinced that there are huge gains to be had from better supporting leaders in unleashing their full potential. Since becoming a Certified Business Coach with the Worldwide Association of Business Coaches, she has been leading the efforts to build Egon Zehnder’s capabilities in leadership development and has focused her client work almost entirely in this area. She works one-on-one with senior leaders, with teams and as faculty in programs, including the transformational leadership programs the firm runs jointly with Mobius Executive Leadership.

Helping leaders discover how much more they have within themselves than they ever realized is always very satisfying. Helping them bring it to bear in their leadership is what unlocks significant value.

Combining sharp understanding of business and leadership demands with the ability to develop deep and personal connections with leaders is what makes Laurence’s coaching distinctive and powerful. Leveraging Egon Zehnder’s vast network, she is able to bring in the world’s best transformational practitioners when needed.

Laurence has trained with some of the leading practitioners in the field, including Carol Kauffman (Founder of the Institute of Coaching at Harvard), Erica Fox (author of Winning From Within), Bob Kegan and Lisa Lahey (Adult Development and Immunity to Change), Jennifer Garvey Berger (Growth Edge and leadership in times of complexity), and Jen Cohen (power of somatics), among others.

Laurence is French born, French and American educated, with an MA in business economics from ESSEC and an MBA from Harvard Business School. She is an accredited coach and full member of the Worldwide Association of Business Coaches. Moreover she is certified to work with The Leadership Circle Profile and completed the Growth Edge Coaching certification in 2019. She has spent most of her career in the UK, where she lives with her family. She has not lost the attachment to her native country and loves retreating to the Alps for some skiing in the winter and to Provence for the smell of lavender and the shine of sunflowers in the summer.
