Val started out her career as a registered nurse. She later moved to medical sales, where she was promoted to several management positions, completing her career as the Director of Sales and Training leading a team of 31 people. Without formal leadership training, she needed to learn quickly how to motivate and guide teams to excel. She was inspired to formalize her training and obtained her MBA and coaching certification.
Kind, warm and empathetic by nature, Val became aware of the cold and competitive environment of the corporate world. In 2012, she founded Executive Muse to teach leaders how to successfully navigate “turbulent waters” and create successful teams. She personally spends time with clients to understand their unique challenges, culture, and vision. Then along with her team, she customizes and facilitates unique training for leaders and their teams.
WRITING CHIEF INSPIRATION OFFICER
After one training, a participant asked if there was a book they could read that could help them reinforce everything they had learned. Val knew she needed to take everything she was teaching and make accessible to all. Chief Inspiration Officer is that book. It will help leaders grow professionally, unify teams and be the boss everyone wants to work for.
