About Laura

Laura Scott-Partnering with Your Potential!

Laura Scott founded 180 Coaching with the desire to change the world–one person, one leader, at a time.

Through her extensive experience as a coach and leadership trainer, Laura noted that her most successful client outcomes came when she partnered with a client, or a team, to imagine their highest potential, or the ultimate gifts of success. Rather than focusing exclusively on behaviors, Laura focuses on the underlying beliefs, or thinking, that drive the behaviors and actions and works from that core, helping the client identify and address any blocks to achievement, and creating a customized ecosystem for growth, resiliency, self awareness and self mastery, using success metrics that are aligned with the client’s passions, values, and aspirations.

Laura recognized early in her life that her values served as motivators, that she learned by doing, and she needed a good challenge to stay engaged. This knowledge and awareness gave her the confidence to launch the first of two fashion sales agency at twenty two years old. Six years later, she changed careers and became a publishing entrepreneur, journalist, and editor. Her core values of achievement and continuous learning led her into the coaching and training field with an emphasis in the soft skills around leadership and communication, informed by her research interests which include neuroscience, cognitive empathy, positive psychology, and the growth mindset.
