Prepare yourself for the
next step in your career!
Have you been passed over for promotion?
Have you seen people succeed who don't work as hard as you?
Who aren't as knowledgeable as you?
Why is this happening?
As a technical person I saw people less talented and less hard-working than I was get promoted above me.
Through applying Systems Thinking I viewed my career differently.
I jump-started my career and now I guide others to do the same.
I can coach you with my proven trademarked process for advancing you up the corporate ladder.
Want to be more strategic and influence others?
I share proven models and practical guidance to prepare you for a seat at the leadership table.
It's time to hone your leadership skills with an experienced business coach.
My Background. I have a Bachelor of Mathematics (Co-op with a minor in Computer Science) and an MBA (with a Human Resources minor). I work well with business leaders and entreprenuers who have a background in sciences, engineering, accounting and business.
Systems Thinking. I knew something was missing in planning and problem solving before I learned Systems Thinking. In Systems Thinking we look at the entire situation first along with its impact on other teams, departments and clients. Then we tackle the details. I use The Systems Thinking Approach® and its application to thinking, planning, communication, career management and life planning. With Systems Thinking we'll understand the entire entity we are working with and the possible implications on other people and systems.
My coaching approach. I tailor the The Systems Thinking Approach® to Coaching for your specific needs.
Certifications. I am certified in one of the few coaching programs that looks from a systems perspective, ORSC (Organization & Relationship Systems Coaching). I'm also certified in Systems Thinking, Strategic Planning, Executing Strategic Plans, Change Management and Career Planning.
Balance of left and right sides of the brain. I enjoy using both the logical, analytical and scientific side of my brain along with the creative, conceptual and holistic part. I use both sides in my coaching and training to include multiple perspectives and reduce the possibility that we missed a solution or unanticipated development.
My experience. I have coached leaders for over twenty years. And consulted to private, public and non-profit organizations during that time. I am a happy entrepreneur.
My sense of humour. While moving ahead in your career is serious, you can still enjoy learning a new set of skills and tools.
You know you've got great skills. That's what got you where you are today!
If you are ready to move your career forward, let's develop your strategic thinking and people skills.
I'm a business coach, systems thinker, trainer and facilitator.
I have coached established, as well as new leaders, to build strategic skills, polish their people skills and add my Systems Thinking Approach® to their way of operating. Therefore, they can accelerate their careers.
I am a certified business coach that can help you strengthen your leadership and take control of your career.
From an early age I learned to create a balance between the scientific and creative sides of my brain.
In order to move beyond my current success, I had to use that balance to break free from the analytical-thinking prison.
I can help you break free too!
Through my coaching, you will learn how to leverage both sides of your brain, construct new neuro-pathways and develop new ways of leading.
PS Many people comment that I have a great sense of humour and am a pleasure to work with.
Valerie has been a great coach on a number of occasions at different stages in my career; all with consistent themes centered on leadership, communication and strategic framework. During my first manager role, she helped me and my team gain mutual understanding and improved communications. Valerie’s teaching of Systems Thinking Approach was of great value when I lead Petro-Canada’s Corporate Strategic Planning group. As a personal coach, Valerie has been instrumental in helping me prioritize, think strategically, find true leadership and focus on what really matters. Thanks, Valerie for helping me throughout my career.
