With a steadfast focus on “north,” Larry LaPrade acts as a gatekeeper for his clients in his coaching business, Mind Nexus. His ultimate aim is to help those seeking his guidance to achieve their goals—not through bullying or making them do things not in alignment with their values, but by unearthing the strengths, passions, and talents they already possess and setting them back on the path to north.
Larry boasts a successful career across multiple industries. His experiences give him a unique understanding of what his clients face on a daily basis, whether they are housewives juggling the needs of children and a spouse or CEOs of Fortune 100 companies leading multinational firms. Larry has been there, and while he certainly could use his past to help clients find their futures, he instead only shares anecdotes to illustrate ideas, allowing his clients determine their own paths.
A trademark saying of Larry’s, “except when we’re not,” gets to the heart of his coaching style. He believes that all of us possess everything we need to be successful in our lives and business, and we are usually on the perfect path—except when we’re not. It is at those times when clients are out of alignment that Larry comes in as a mental chiropractor of sorts to gently make slight adjustments to help their owns minds do the rest.
Larry’s holistic approach to coaching is suitable for anyone. He coaches around four key areas (physical fitness and athleticism, mindset and attitude, goal setting and focus, and perspective and paradox) as well as steadfast focus on clients’ key agendas. He is available in one-on-one settings as well as through group coaching and intensive seminars. Larry also speaks across the country on key topics that are important to today’s leaders, getting them on track for success.
