At Thriving Ibis Leadership Solutions, we help science and technology leaders go from surviving to thriving.


What does thriving mean? It means feeling fulfilled both inside and outside of the workplace. It means knowing how to foster psychological safety with teams, at events and conferences, and in both digital and physical spaces. It means helping everyone do their best work by building inclusive workplaces where our whole selves are embraced.


Our solutions include a tailored-to-you mix of workshops, coaching, and consulting to provide individual and team leadership development. Research-based and industry-tested methods, including diversity and inclusion best practices, ensure participants get the most out of our time together. We also provide consulting to help conference and meeting planners make their events more welcoming to diverse audiences.

Owner and principal facilitator Dr. AJ Lauer has an extensive background in STEM workforce development.
