About Us

Laurie Sudbrink, Leading With GRIT
Lead With GRIT!

Like you, leadership expert and author Laurie Sudbrink has seen effective leadership that makes people want to step up and do more - and she has seen down-right terrible leadership that only inspires people to tell stories of the monstrous boss they have!

So what does it take to be effective? Is it power, authority, an impressive title? Or is it something else?

With over two decades of executive coaching, leadership training, speaking, and most importantly, real-life, hands-on business experience, her approach is completely different. Laurie appreciates, and shares with listeners, that leadership is not about title, power or position - we all know the old command-and-control is not cutting it. Leadership is for each and every one of us. It's how we should live our life.

Laurie’s passion for empowering people inspired her to establish Unlimited Coaching Solutions, Inc. in 1999. She is known for her ability to connect with her audience through her fusion of real-life stories and her practical approach that hit home at an intense and intimate level. Laurie is the author of Leading With GRIT, endorsed by Ken Blanchard (The One Minute Manager) and Don Miguel Ruiz (The Four Agreements).

Leading With GRIT was nominated for Leadership Book of the Year with L&MB Magazine, and featured in Forbes and Entrepreneur. Laurie partners with the United States Navy, Fortune 500s, small businesses, and all types of organizations. She is the founder of GRIT® training programs, an authorized partner of Patrick Lencioni’s Five Cohesive Behaviors of a Team, certified in DiSC® and a Four Agreements trainer. Laurie speaks to organizations across the globe and continues to inspire the best and brightest in the leadership development field.

  • We got enough out of the first day to pay for the entire program!

    Ken Bonn, Managing Partner Bonn, Dioguardi & Ray in Rochester NY
  • Laurie worked with us to develop our managers through her stellar program, Leading With GRIT. By using DiSC as a foundational tool, we’ve provided the SWBR management team with useful resources to increase communication, work style preferences, and individual vantage points. Laurie made the training practical, fun and easy to remember.

  • “Just a quick note to thank you again. I’m sure you picked up on my skepticism the first day of class. I also hope you realize at the end you won me over. You made it a fun and very informative 4 days, your enthusiasm was, and is, contagious. I will “do my best” to practice what you’ve taught.”

    Frank Greco US Navy, San Diego
  • I found Unlimited Coaching Solutions' coaching program to be extremely beneficial to my professional development. Their approach is grounded in a real world methodology that can instantly be put to practical use in daily work environment situations. I am glad I took the time out of my busy work schedule to participate in this program.

    Anthony Sandonato Principal, Mengel Metzger Barr & Co. LLP
  • The Four Agreements of Leadership program provided our employees with the knowledge and confidence to give and receive feedback, not only to those that report to them, but to their managers and peers as well! This has enabled us to communicate more directly, thus saving time that might otherwise be spent brooding over things left unsaid.
