Hello, I am Lauren Ploof

It’s easy to see my energy and drive to help others flourish and accomplish anything I put my mind towards. I am responsible, acutely aware of others, and full of encouragement and support to everyone I know.

I have a remarkable ability to connect with a variety of people, and authenticity in all my communications to help people feel heard and cared for.

I am equipped with organizational resources to turn well-meaning intentions into action, with an extraordinary ability to organize people.

The character traits that has been validated by my superiors is my outstanding work ethic, internal motivation and my desire to learn, grow, and contribute.

My Projects

The Un-Résumé Project

Everyone can agree the résumé is not fulfilling its original intent. A small group of us asked “how might we…” and created a framework to inspire individuals to bring the human element back to their résumé to truly show head, heart, and briefcase.

Mediocre Super Power

To tackle the feat of getting to know a team 573 miles away, I shared a clever icebreaker and the question seemed to stick. The question has inspired clients, friends, youth retreats, and an industry meet up for stampers. The question was loved by so many and the creativity shared is always a good laugh.


I’ve had the opportunity to teach on a number of platforms. I find joy in being a trained Co.Starters Facilitator for our local chapter of micro-business starters class, Village Launch. My favorite is the ah-ha moments when all the pieces click or some one discovers their capabilities were greater than when they started.


Classroom style learning is not the only option. Books, interviews, self lead courses, but most importantly curiosity and humility make me a life long learner. Check out my latest read and suggest your favorite. Maybe we can start a book club.
