Val’s coaching in Systems Thinking has enabled me to get out of the details, so that I can make a larger contribution and bigger impact on the organization.

Valerie has facilitated in a variety of forums over the past dozen years. Her ability to keep the group focused on the task at hand and ensure all participants honour their own rules is one of her strengths.
Pat MacDonald - Vice President Admin Services, Encana Corporation
Wellspring Calgary had the privilege of working with Valerie MacLeod during a recent and very important strategic planning process. Valerie’s knowledge, preparation, skill in facilitation, sense of humor, and organizational skill made the event a tremendous success. All who took part expressed great satisfaction with the process, the experience, and the outcome. We left our time together with the plan we needed and a sense of confidence as we move forward. I would wholeheartedly recommend Valerie. She is an exceptional facilitator who brings a solid business understanding to your business/organizational needs.
Patti Morris - Executive Director, Wellspring Calgary
I have worked with Val over the last several years, and value her strong facilitation skills. She is able to keep a team on topic while still managing to promote an environment of creativity. Her knowledge of the systems thinking model and basic team dynamics makes her a strong contributor to my management team’s development.
Terry Schmidtke - VP, JayHawk Resources
I was fortunate to have Valerie MacLeod recommended to me for coaching when I went into business for myself. She gave me the tools I needed to build my business and the basis on which to approach potential clients. She helped me to navigate stress, work/life balance and goal setting. My success is a direct result of Valerie’s ability to guide me through the complexity of business and leadership. She opened the door to my potential and helped me walk through it. Now that the door is open the possibilities are endless. She could do the same for you. It all started with an email. It was as simple as that.

I get to know you and your individual needs - so that you become another satisfied client!
I tailor every coaching session, facilitation and internal workshop to your specific needs.
For public workshops and webinars I build in time for your questions - both live and following the sessions.
I enjoy working with people with a wide mix of backgrounds and organizations. From self-employed to executives in multi-national organizations and everything in between, I love getting to know how I can help you solve your problems, learn new skills or jumpstart your career.
I have a Bachelors of Mathematics, so I work well with STEM backgrounds - science, technology, engineering, mathematics.
I also have an MBA in Human Resources. I've worked with entrepreneurs, and leaders in management, charities and construction. I've successfuly worked with people in the arts, communications and even religious organizations.
I am a systems thinker. I focus on the system you are in and how we can work together to impact that system.
If that system is an entire organization, you may want more executable strategic plans, improved team results or long-term buy-in from stakeholders.
If that system is smaller, you may want to be a more effective leader, achieve better career-life balance or find a new position.
It doesn't matter the size of the system, we can work together to create your desired outcomes!
