Myers has analyzed leadership and management practices in various types of organizations and industries. She uses those insights to coach leaders in their quest to "transcend typical," refine their skills, and navigate complexity with strategic wisdom and positive relationships that produce results. Learn about Leadership Development>>> 

Surprising results of Valerie's research study that examined organizational climate, diversity management, and errors in healthcare led her to focus on leaders' behavior rather than staff training. With continuous research and refinements in the MBA classroom, she equips change champions to lead at all levels (e.g., institutions, organizational culture, teams).

Through exhaustive research, Myers discovered that a calling is more than passion or prosocial intent -- it's a commitment to produce great work! Therefore, pursuit of a calling is a catalyst for engaged workers and good business that serves society. Notably, a calling is cultivated in or constrained by institutions throughout one's life. Myers presented these findings in her book, business case, at academic conferences, and keynote addresses. Are you living your calling?>>>

 

Dr. Myers' research has been funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation, the Center for Healthcare Research and Transformation, and the Walter McNerny Foundation. It has focused on the topics above and was conducted in hospitals, public health, and safety net organizations. She transfers these insights to other industries.

I understand and I believe that you deserve better. I’m here to help you overcome inertia and be a hero of humane business that creates value and vitality through business as UNUSUAL.

Inclusive Leadership

If these people aren't leading, 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.

What leaders will learn:

  • Understand, explore and overcome your unease with diversity.

  • Develop insights and skills to shift internally and act

Learn more...

Are these people on your executive team?

Healthcare Leadership

That's why healthcare leaders and clinicians transitioning to executive roles need more than typical MBA skills. Dr. Myers helps you develop vital skills, drawing upon her expertise teaching graduate courses in healthcare management at Dartmouth and the University of Michigan.  What you will learn:

  • How elements of the organization function as a whole.

  • How to better manage yourself to strengthen decision-making.

  • The psychology of change and how to manage it.

  • How to create a high-reliability culture.

  • Tactics to promote belonging and inclusion.

  • How to align people and systems to energize excellent performance!
