Lauren Ann Schieffer grew up military, in an Air Force family, “hitting the road” to a new station every couple of years. This imbued her with incredible people skills, a profound in-dependence and the ability to adapt to changing circumstances.
Lauren’s professional path began behind a receptionist desk at a moving company. Thankful for the work but not satisfied with the growth potential, she built an independent business with the world’s leading cosmetic company where she rose to the top two percent of the company’s management force while recruiting, mentoring and inspiring countless women to create their own version of success.
Unfortunately, she has also walked some very dark and scary roads in her lifetime. She has waged battle with and recovered from eating disorders. In addition, Lauren has sur-vived not one, but two sexual assaults. Lauren’s life journey has brought her to the conclu-sion that what happens to you in your life is not as important as how you choose to respond to what happens to you in your life.
Now, as a recognized expert on respectful conflict management, and the driving force be-hind High Road communication, Lauren has inspired tens of thousands of people nation-ally and internationally to shake off mediocrity and aspire to excellence and personal influ-ence.
Lauren’s book, Road Signs on the High Road of Life has been listed by LifeStyles Maga-zine in their top ten Best-of for Corporate Gift Giving and is recommended by multiple treatment facilities across the country as a “must-read” for those in recovery.
Lauren leads by example because she simply refuses to place limits on herself. She shows others how to expand their comfort zones to achieve personal and professional fulfillment. She has a passion for guiding others – women, men, executives, managers, employees and entrepre-neurs alike – in their quest to pass through good and grasp great; to pass beyond survival and into triumph.
She also makes sure to have some fun along the way – because if you can’t have a little fun along the road, why travel it at all?read less

BEING or FINDING? Which is More Important? by Lauren Schieffer, Business Speaker
Recently, during a conversation at a networking event I was asked, “What is more important – being significant, or finding significance?” Well, the answer is… both. As I’ve mentioned before, being significant involves how many lives you touch and the positive impact you have on those lives. You can’t BE significant until you discover (find) your own unique significance. Each… ... read more
