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 confidential 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 a successful transition to your new role, while avoiding common 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.
Astutely realign your organization's strategy for success.
At any stage of your organization's lifecycle (e.g., emerging, growing, or declining), Valerie helps leaders astutely realign your strategy to meet demands of the operating environment. Going beyond typical SWOT and PEST analysis, she uses the Strategic Curiosity® framework to engage your team in analysis of key factors that will inform a comprehensive plan for renewal and growth.
A typical engagement may include organizational diagnostics, individual assessments, retreat, and executive coaching to manage the strategy formulation and change process.
Valerie combines academic insights from business and sociology with industry experience developing profitable niche market products to help your firm achieve results.
In many of my classes I learned the technical skills that a leader should know, but in Dr. Myers' class, I learned how to be a leader!
