No matter how sophisticated you may be, a large granite mountain cannot be denied – it speaks in silence to the very core of your being.
- Ansel Adams
Discreetly cultivating leaders that are worth following.
Accomplished professionals like you are rarely questioned, challenged or encouraged to change and grow. At some point however, a large granite mountain appears that cannot be denied; it speaks to the core of your being and invites you to become more.
In a supportive yet challenging relationship, we use assessments, dialogue, assignments and feedback to devise a personal action plan that aids your quest toward exemplary leadership. Success begins with listening to your mountain and summoning the courage to climb higher.
Emerging Leaders Learn tools and skills that facilitate your successful transition to your new role, while avoiding typical missteps of new leaders.
Established Leaders Invest in renewing and revitalizing your leadership skills. Give yourself permission and space to pause, reflect and conquer complacence that can result from a track record of success and unchallenged power.
Strategy is about deliberately choosing to be different.
Valerie helps leaders astutely realign their organization's strategy to address any stage in the lifecycle. Going beyond typical SWOT and PEST analysis, she rigorously combines academic insights with her industry experience developing profitable niche market products for a global firm. Valerie uses the Strategic Curiosity® framework to help leaders and teams navigate complexity to plan a better future. Organizational diagnostics, individual assessments, and executive coaching are used to manage the strategic change process.
