The world is swimming in data yet thirsty for insight.
Today's leaders grapple with an avalanche of information and opinions -- of highly variable quality. That's the problem. You don't need more random information; you need rigorous information that leads to insight! Dr. Valerie L. Myers is a trusted advisor that help leaders transform information into insights and actions that produce uncommon results.
Insight is the key to effectively navigating complexity, uncertainty, diversity, and rapid change. Insight is also vital for devising innovative, strategic, and profitable solutions. But cultivating insights takes time, effort, and experience. Through coaching and executive education, Dr. Myers helps you strengthen your insights while preparing you to successfully transition to an executive role or fulfill your calling to leadership.
Valerie leverages 20 years of expertise in behavioral change and business to create a lively, challenging and transformative learning experience for you and your team. She uses her research and in-depth knowledge of Inclusive Leadership, Healthcare Leadership and Faith & Business to help leaders thrive.
If not, your organization is leaking value and not reaping the MAXIMUM return on your DE&I investment. Staff DE&I training has it's place -- but not first place. If you want to accelerate and sustain change, cultivating senior leaders' skills matter more. Dr. Myers draws upon her scholarship and practice to help you develop skills to create a culture of belonging and driving systemic change.
Ideal for leaders who are ambivalent about diversity or have been slow to demonstrate a robust commitment to change.
