Meet Lauren
Q

What behavior or personality trait(s) do you most attribute your success to, and why?

A

Transparency, responsiveness, proactive communication and a true interest in others. I am innately interested in other people – their story, intentions, motivations and what made them into who they are today. Everyone is unique which makes life interesting.

Q

What energizes you at work?

A

I am the most energized by seeing my team members and direct reports succeed. I also enjoy meeting new people and growing Headlands Research. I thrive in an environment that is high demand where I am expected to wear multiple hats, strategize and deliver a best-in-class work product.

Q

What’s one or two things most people don’t know about you?

A

I am a marathon runner. I have run four marathons to date and was slated to run my fifth in Paris (April 2020) but unfortunately was thwarted by COVID. I am extrovert that recharges similar to an introvert so perhaps an ambivert or omnivert?

Q

What’s the best advice you were ever given?

A

Love yourself

Q

What’s one item you can’t leave your house or apartment without?

A

Besides a mask? On a day-to-day basis, I am very low maintenance. I am often teased about the lack of items I carry around with me as I prefer to get up and go. When I’m running around with the kids, I always have a “real-live” snack for them. What is a “real live snack” you ask? This is classified as anything containing carbs per my 6-year-old son.

Q

If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?

A

Hands down - I would choose the ability to “teleport.” Not only would I be able to visit interesting and hard to reach destinations within the blink of an eye, but I would be able to escape danger easily. My only caveat would be that I’d be able to “teleport” others along with me!
