83: Finding Success Through Intuition with Laura Noel

Embracing Change and Entrepreneurship

In this episode of Make Your Move, you’ll hear from Laura Noel, a former Air Force chief master sergeant turned organizational psychologist and executive coach. You can find her section in The Military Effect by Scott Manthorne in chapter 25, on page 86.

Laura’s military career provided her with a diverse range of experiences, including serving as a radar scope operator and participating in the Air Force entertainment program TOPS IN Blue. However, it was her persistent intuition that nudged her to pursue yoga teacher certification, which played a pivotal role in shaping her post-military path. Despite her initial doubts and uncertainty, Laura’s decision to invest in herself and take decisive action ultimately led to the discovery of her genuine passion, organizational psychology, and executive coaching.

Drawing upon her military experience, Laura emphasizes the invaluable skills and traits developed during her service that have directly contributed to her success as an entrepreneur and coach. The ability to adapt quickly to new roles, connect with diverse teams, and effectively tap into collective wisdom are just some of the traits that veterans bring to the table in the business world.

Laura shares the impact of mentorship on her personal and professional growth. From her mentor, Bob Proctor, who guided her through the challenges of transitioning out of the service, to the military leaders, peers, and her husband, mentorship has been a significant factor in shaping her path. Her praise of the importance of mentorship serves as a reminder of the value of seeking guidance and support, especially during pivotal career transitions.

Listen to the full episode to hear Laura’s story, the lessons she learned from her military career, and the insights she offers aspiring entrepreneurs and leaders.
