Build personal and professional strength

Are you ready to make a transformative impact in your field, deepen the connection with your team and colleagues, and find more ease and enjoyment? By getting clear about your strengths, you can challenge yourself and your team to move forward through obstacles and meet your goals.

“Working with Val has been a phenomenal experience. She brings her experience working with Silicon Valley leaders and understanding what it means to work in a fast paced and high pressure environment. She’s helped me navigate some of the biggest leadership and management challenges I’ve faced in my career so far. In particular I enjoy her coaching because it is both encouraging and challenging at the same time. I’ve been able to more clearly see my potential in becoming the leader I want to be and how to put the right strategies in place to manage my teams, influence my stakeholder environment and most importantly, find the right balance personally. I am convinced that any leader and their teams will benefit from working with Val.”

Andy Stark, Head of Portfolio, New Business Models and Ventures Lead, Ernst & Young

“Val has been a great coach for me! I’ve been particularly impressed by her ability to help me understand my leadership style through discussions, probing questions, 360-feedback gathering, and thoughtful synthesis. I’ve also appreciated how she goes above and beyond to help me improve— including sending me reading materials, following up in between coaching sessions with interesting prompts and reminders, and adapting to my specific needs rather than following a rigid program.”

Jeff Mounzer, Head of Product, Qventus

“What a GREAT experience coaching with Val has been. She helped me to see my strengths and to recognize my weaknesses in the most productive kind of way. She allowed me to be true to myself while making suggestions/giving feedback with real life practical exercises. SEVEN words for her are…SMART, REAL, CARING, DRIVEN, INSIGHTFUL, STRATEGIC and AMAZING.”

Susan, General Manager at a major U.S. News Broadcasting Network

“Working with Val was a delight. She quickly got up to speed on who I was and how best to work with me. She did a great job guiding me to the right paths, whether that be tackling tough conversations, accelerating my career, managing my team, etc. She never ‘told’ me what to do, but always helped me get there at my speed and preference.”

Lisa-Anne Chung, Director of Product, Upwork
