I CO-DIRECT ONE OF THE TOP LEADERSHIP COACHING PROGRAMS
IN THE COUNTRY.
LET’S CLIMB TOGETHER.
Are you tired of pretending things are OK when they’re not but unsure what to do about it?
Are you asking “how can I unapologetically ‘take space’ in the workplace as a woman of color?”
Are you in question about “leveling up” your career?
Are you asking yourself “how can I give back?“
Are you wanting to take a hard yet thoughtful look at your life and your work?
PRO TIP: NO ONE REALIZES THEIR FULL POTENTIAL ALONE.
I serve and support individuals and teams to realize their full potential and achieve personal and professional transformation. The pathway to realizing your potential calls for a broad spectrum of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual resources and you can’t do that alone. Coaching unlocks the leader’s full range of capabilities and enlists the leader’s own creativity and resourcefulness to develop and apply solutions. I’ve taken this journey of transformation and can partner with you to do the same.
Approach to Leadership Coaching
Coaching is based on cura personalis, or care for the whole person, personal and professional, supporting leaders to examine their beliefs and their actions in service of their stated goals. Leadership coaching combines the application and integration of evidence-based mindfulness and leadership practices to support vibrant, self-aware, grounded, and compassionate leaders and teams.
During the one-on-one, confidential coaching process, I partner with leaders to identify core values, challenge core limiting beliefs, and hold leaders accountable for their commitments toward their goals. My unique approach combines the use of evidence-based mindfulness practices and leadership development to support leaders through powerful questions, resource building, and active listening to create new awareness that block potential, align values with actions, challenge leaders to question their own stories, shift stuck patterns, and help leaders develop an effective action plan to achieve defined goals.

“Valerie’s coaching helped me to become a more insightful, impactful leader by tuning in to what was most important for our work on hunger and trauma. She listens and responds with profound wisdom from her long experience in the professional world and as a spiritual guide and seeker. Valerie introduced me to new ways of understanding my work. She not only helped me along my own personal/professional transformation, but also helped my team and I to pivot and deepen our work.”Mariana Chilton, PhD, MPH
