Master Coach and Team Catalyst: Laura Neff

I love being a Coach because I find so much joy and reverence in deepening the impact of leaders. I am driven as a Coach by the urgent, intersecting needs of our day: climate crisis and planetary sustainability, racial and social justice, global health crises, and more. These critical areas require self-aware, clear, and grounded leaders. I can do something about that!

I have over 15 years of direct executive and leadership coaching experience, up to and including CEO and C-suite levels, and I have designed and led countless workshops and multi-day intensives. 

I am passionate about leadership team development, team dynamics, org comm strategy, and transformational coaching. Our founder KC will tell you I am a primary reason he became a coach.

I help clients discover that our whole-life well-being isn’t only a source of vitality— it’s a non-negotiable, deeply responsible foundation for our impact. You’ll usually find me out in nature, proving this for myself.

With diverse work experience in corporate, entrepreneurial, and small business arenas, I’ve been blessed to create measurable, positive results in many areas. (Ask me how a giant snake once invaded my kitchen and racked up 7+ million Youtube and Facebook views. Or, we could talk about the year I lived/ traveled in a converted school bus. Your choice.)

A Quick Word.
Who Coaching is For

The foundation of our coaching is rooted in what we call Ruthless Self-Knowledge. If you have an insatiable curiosity to leverage your unique skills into something sustainable and scalable, you’re in the right place.


We are drawn to partner with clients who consider themselves “seekers.” They are less concerned with some fantasy quick-fix, and more concerned with experiencing life and success on their terms.


Taking action on any endeavor, whether a business project, or in doing deep, introspective work, is a requirement. No mystery there. This Epic Life coaching is designed for those who take action each and every day. But we’re less concerned with “action for action’s sake.”


We want to identify and inspire your right-action. These are the priorities that are often the most direct route to your goal.


Clients who have the thirst for self-knowledge are naturally humble. (Note: we didn’t say self-absorbed.) They are open to learning on all sides, yet confident enough to take action until they achieve the much-craved result. That is who our work seems to resonate with— and who it produces incredible results for.


3 Months is enough to set a strong foundation, but our clients who stay on for a minimum of 6-12 create lasting, transformative results.



When we mutually decide to complete the coaching term, This Epic Life will bless you on with your Project Designs— that if you stick with, will carry you to your Big Honkin’ Dream. What’s discussed on our calls is held in strict confidence, to the ethics and standards of the International Coaching Federation.


If you’re not comfortable showing up and talking about what’s really going on— or you’re the type who isn’t willing to take a deep, sometimes hard look at the relationship between how you live and what you contribute — WE WILL NOT BE A FIT.



You won’t get what you need, and will be wasting your money and both of our time.

When you’re vetting or hiring a potential coach, the first question you should ask is: “Who is your coach, and are you working together regularly?” If the answer is “not really” you are likely talking to an expert, fixer, or consultant.


Nothing wrong with that, except you’re going to need a breakthrough to achieve the results you want. You can’t fix the need for a breakthrough in my experience. I’m constantly reminded how powerful receiving great coaching is to providing coaching.


The quality of our work as coaches is directly related to the quality of the badass coaches we hire to keep us honest, keep us in integrity, and stand for our greatness.


Please also ask where they received their training/certification, and for the distinctions between therapy, coaching, and consulting. This will tell you if you’re talking to a coach, versus someone who is savvy at marketing quick fixes that don’t stick. 🙂



I chose Accomplishment for my training because it is ontologically-based. We studied and practiced hundreds of distinctions to tell when our clients are in their power (Essence), versus Survival Mechanism (or winning strategies). This is commonly referred to as “off the court” coaching.

Most clients hire coaches to hold them accountable, and to produce results. This is “on the court” coaching, and it’s a given. What I’m seeing though, without the “off the court” or “under the hood” piece, we’re not yet the people who can produce the much-craved results.



It takes both sides. I see this in the coaching I receive and the results I generate.

OUR MISSION

is to help Conscious Leaders Connect—
to themselves, to 1 another, and to All That Is.
