Port Angeles, WA – The Latin word “accommodare” means “adapt.” Dr. Andrea Luoma is an executive coach and founder of Accommodare Consulting, where she provides neuroscience-based communication and leadership consulting and coaching.
“My full belief is we don't really change, though we can become more of who we are” says Dr. Luoma. “It’s more about choosing to adapt, discover or experiment, which makes chosen alterations much more digestible, doable.”
Dr. Luoma works primarily with CEOs and other senior leaders, directors or managers to reimagine conversation and upgrade the conversation level of the whole organization.
“The reality is everybody needs to have better conversations and relationships,” says Dr. Luoma. “If you treat people with dignity and respect, give them the resources to do their job, and support them, people will want to perform, but too often we're catching people doing things wrong rather than encouraging them to do things right.”
Dr. Luoma’s approach is based on the latest neuroscience.
“Neuroscience is a game-changer,” says Dr. Luoma. “I'm not a neuroscientist, I do not purport to be one, but I know how to read research and apply it in an organizational context. This is the way of the future and it's going to turn everything on its head, from psychology, to business, to leadership, to relationships.”
“I’m most proud that I can help people truly alter their relationships with others as well as with themselves,” says Dr. Luoma. “And it doesn't take a lot. It doesn't take a lot at all.”
