Who Leads Kutsko Consulting?
Lauren Marie Kutsko
You want Lauren Marie by your side in the kitchen on Christmas Day when you're creating a masterpiece, grandma is about to arrive, and you just realized you ran out of your special meal's most important ingredient. The stores are all closed, but it doesn't matter. Her creative genius comes alive when resources are scarce and you simply must impress the people who matter most. And, everyone else in the kitchen will have more fun because she's there.
Loren likes to have fun, but he hates playing games. You want Loren by your side on the day the IKEA truck drops off your new kitchen... in flat pack boxes. Stacks and stacks of flat pack boxes, assembly not included. If it comes with instructions, he can do it. In fact, he even learned how to write this paragraph from reading a book. Right the first time, faster than you thought possible. Rinse, repeat. When you need to scale your genius, there is no one better.
But wait a second, what does that have to do with developing my employees, you ask? Great question!
In 2014, while working on one of her earlier businesses, Fancy Nonsense, Lauren Marie's team began to grow and suddenly everything started to feel a little less like nonsense and a lot less fancy. What happened to the fun? She attended a week of training on how to understand people and collaborate effectively by combining three psychological dimensions: behavior, motivation and emotion. Since then, Lauren Marie has coached hundreds of executive leaders and facilitated workshops to help transform the way their teams work together. Later she became interested in neural integration – the linkage among differentiated aspects of the brain and completed a certificate in Interpersonal Neurobiology through the Mindsight Institute with Dr. Daniel J. Siegel of the University of California in Los Angeles. She is the host of The Integrated Leader Podcast, provides transformational coaching, facilitates group workshops, and handles all aspects of customer success at Kutsko Consulting.
Meanwhile, Loren has a degree in Informatics which is the study of information technology applied to solve complex problems in the real world (his 6th grade daughter refers to this as, IRL). He was the Global Chief Information Officer at a large humanitarian agency where he oversaw a team of technologists working in over 20 countries. Later, he was the Chief Operating Officer at a boutique interactive software development agency and began coaching and mentoring entrepreneurs who were struggling to find startup capital for their ventures. Now, when he isn't advising executive leaders he develops innovative learning and development solutions, manages sales and marketing, and keeps accounts receivables current at Kutsko Consulting.
Before the gray hair, Lauren Marie and Loren met at Indiana University in the nineties. They live in Phoenix, Arizona, have three kids, and love playing in the woods, near creeks, in the mountains.
If you've ever felt like leading was a lot more fun before you had all these people to hire, manage, and hold accountable, you're not alone, and you want Lauren Marie and Loren by your side.
