Speaker Bio
Executive coach and consultant Lauren Krasnow helps law firm senior leaders and leadership teams hone the many skills and mindsets needed for peak effectiveness. Lawdragon honored Lauren as a 2023 Global 100 Leader for Legal Strategy & Consulting for her expertise in Leadership Development.
Lauren is quoted regularly in the media and writes a popular leadership column for The American Lawyer called the Fully Human LawyerTM (FHLTM). Vetted first by former big firm managing partners and other leaders who advise her, each FHLTM column says things that many leaders wish (or assume) their firm’s people understood. Examples include “Do Associates Know What They’re Really Being Paid For?,” “Why Too Many Partners Misread Their Value to Law Firms,” and “Failure to Give Feedback Can Cost You Dearly.”

A magna cum laude Wharton graduate, and a cum laude University of Michigan Law School one, Lauren clerked for a federal judge and then practiced law in NYC for many years with highly-ranked practices (Latham & Watkins, Morgan Lewis, Torys, Hogan) before leaving law practice to become a top-producing legal recruiter. Then, following a few years as a stay-at-home parent, she became a certified professional coach and worked for a respected consultancy before opening her own successful leadership coaching business in 2021.

Lauren proudly serves on the Board of Directors of her chapter of the International Coaching Federation (ICF). She has been honored by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for her leadership after the tragedy of September 11, 2001, in fighting both antisemitism and anti-Muslim bias/Islamophobia. Born and bred in Warwick, Rhode Island, Lauren now lives in West Hartford, CT, with her husband, their two teenagers and Ozzie, their family Labradoodle. Lauren learns a ton of leadership lessons from all of them (especially Ozzie) and enjoys sharing those lessons in her column, with clients, and on LinkedIn.
