Laura Berman Fortgang, The Little Book of Meaning

Laura Berman Fortgang, The Little Book of Meaning

Laura Berman Fortgang is truly one of the pioneers in the personal coaching field. She has a number of books to her name including Now What?: 90 Days to a New Life Direction and her most recent The Little Book of Meaning (and no doubt you can immediately see why Laura’s such a great fit with great work.)

Laura was one of the very first personal coaches to be featured on national television including an appearance on Oprah. And on top of running a company that provides coaching and training, she is also an ordained interfaith minister.

In our conversation we:

  • hear about the moment that shifted her to expand her practice from coaching to training as a minister – and the importance of listening to the call of Great Work
  • get into why “meaningful work” isn’t all about becoming Mother Theresa – but finding it in the life you currently live
  • talk about how your schedule tells you more about your life than you’d care to admit
