Lou Solomon, Founder

Lou Solomon
Lou Solomon is a CEO, author and coach who struggled with severe shyness as a child. She didn’t speak up for the first 10 years of her life. Her early struggle has been a gift, since she knows that people can learn to make connections influence others in a positive way. She and her team are known for their ability to draw out the authentic style of clients by building upon their strengths.

Lou is a member of the adjunct faculty at the McColl School of Business at Queens University of Charlotte, and co-founder of the school’s annual TWIST Conference for Women. Her articles and insights have been published by Fast Company, Entrepreneur.com, CEO.com, the American Management Association, Leadership Essentials, SUCCESS Magazine and more. Her latest research in collaboration with Harris Interactive sheds light on the communication practices that keep leaders from being effective.
