Lori Riner

“Embracing your creativity as a leader is a powerful force to spark inspiration and innovation among those you lead.”

Lori brings enthusiasm and energy to help leaders discover and reach their maximum potential. After experiencing difficulty resourcing solid leadership development tools for the teams she was leading, Lori sought additional training and education and discovered the field of life coaching. She has been a professional life coach for 11 years, having completed her foundational training through The Institute for Life Coach Training. She is a Lead Self Lead Others certified leadership coach and has also been a certified corporate wellness coach.

Life is about change whether we are prepared for it or not.   We believe the most effective leaders are prepared.  They study change, respect change, and work to create change. Lori guides clients to actively embrace change and fully steward their story. Clarifying values, discovering potential, and breaking through the frustration gap are all part of the process. Powerful transformation and positive forward movement are the results.  Not where you would like to be?  Lori coaches both business and ministry leaders and teams and thrives on developing dynamic relationships that empower forward movement.  It’s time to get unstuck!  Her passion for innovation combined with proven leadership principles equips clients to think outside the box, creatively engage their potential and discover who they were designed to be!

Lori brings strengths and insights to her coaching gained from a diverse business, educational, and ministry background. This includes over 20 years experience in sales, marketing, and development. Lori has designed a total quality management system and coached teams through successful implementation. She has also launched business startups and understands the planning, determination, and objectivity needed to be successful. Lori has a Bachelor’s degree with emphasis in psychology, humanities, and science from Northeastern State University.
