Meet leadership and team performance specialist, Laura
I help leaders and employees be their best and bring their best to work.
Consistently trusted by CEOs, HRDs, and senior executives I ignite your teams’ performance.
Why work with me?
Laura Howard MSc, Psychologist & Consultant
Making work work for everyone – leaders, teams, and customers – is my passion and professional purpose.
After a twenty-year global career in the private and public sectors, including ten years as a senior leader, I wanted to help other teams and leaders be their best and bring that best to their customers.
That led me to the University of London, where I qualified as an Organisational Psychologist in 2022. Following my graduation, I was asked to join my college (Birkbeck) as an Associate Tutor. I am actively involved in several leadership research projects and authored a year-long research study on authenticity in women’s leadership during my Masters degree.
So now, in the Contented Workplace Company, I combine my professional experience as a global leader with academic rigour. It’s the natural evolution of my skills, experience, and training: As a qualified Organisational Psychologist, my work is data and evidence-driven; as a previous people leader, my expertise has been forged in real-world experience. And of course, I continue learning through ongoing CPD.
