Challenging conversations are now rewarding

"I now influence others with a different approach that has made such a beneficial impact and resulted in better relationships with my team. I no longer find myself 'telling' someone what should be done or how it should be done. It has been a change I've embraced."

  Are you a leader who….  

Do your face Leadership Challenges?
  • Didn’t learn the skills to lead effectively?

  • Struggles with difficult conversations?

  • Is not sure how to address certain behaviors as smoothly as possible?

  • Becomes overwhelmed keeping up with goals, priorities and deadlines?

  • And, at times, feels alone on management island?

Sound Familiar?

  • Have you listened to every management podcast?
     

  • Is the business section your go-to at
    Barnes & Nobles?

     

  • Are you the first to sign up for every training course?
     

  • Do you then forget what you learned 3 weeks later?

Want to learn how to become a better leader?

Hi, I'm Val

I too was promoted with no official training. I struggled with performance, behavior and moral challenges. Determined not to fail, I picked up every book I could find, earned my MBA and coaching certification. I learned about what intrinsically motivates people and turned my struggling team around. 


After leaving my corporate job, I founded Executive Muse to teach small and large companies like Citrix, Facebook and Gonzaga University the leadership skills to create highly engaged employees.

I want to help you do the same!


That’s why I created the Chief Inspiration Officer (CIO) Management Mastery course, inspired by my book: CIO: How to Lead the Team everyone wants to be on

I’ve become a more influential leader

Val’s approach is creative, considerate, thoughtful and intricately precise for the person at the place they are at that time.

Introducing
Chief Inspiration Officer
Management Mastery Course

Chief Inspiration Officer, Management Mastery Course Infographic

Join me on this 6-week guided journey to become the boss everyone wants to work for.

Module 1 : Becoming a Chief Inspiration Officer.

Many of us weren’t taught how to get the most from others. This leads to confusion of our role. In this module, we give you clarity on that role so you can lead any situation with confidence and ease.

Module 2: Inspire yourself so you can inspire others.

You know those times when you are triggered, having an off moment, or a frustrating day. We’ll explore my CAVE method that explains why we get overloaded with the nitty gritty. Once free from the CAVE, you’ll have the confidence to focus more on vision, authentic communication and team cohesion.

 Module 3:  How to increase Employee Engagement.

Over the years, I’ve found that team members desperately want five things from their leaders. As luck would have it, those five items form the acronym CRAVE. This tool helps you deliver what your team members need most, leading to increased engagement, collaboration and productivity.

Module 4: Create a microculture that thrives.

I’ll introduce you to the Real Ideal method, so you can unlock your vision and chart a course to inspire others towards the same goal. Establishing a team microculture makes it easier to onboard and layoff employees when everyone is working toward a common goal based on shared values, vision and understanding.

 Module 5:  Master the Art of Challenging conversation.

Communication can make or break any relationship. I'll share with you an incredibly powerful communication tool that works even with the most challenging situations. (It even works with teenagers!)

Module 6: Final Musings.

Even the best tools are ineffective if they are not implemented daily. In this module, we’ll recap all the material so it’s further integrated into your day-to-day plan.

 Plus, get these great bonuses: 

How to Hire

I Get More Buy In

Val has found a great way to help polish my management style. She takes my strengths and uses those to sharpen the conversations I have with my team. Before our training, my conversation with the team was more "directive". With the management mastery training, I have learned to ask questions and get my team  talking more, creating more of a "buy in".

Client Testimonial

I’m less stressed

There has been a big reduction in stress for me as it pertains to employee relations issues. I am able to handle these issues with confidence and leave them at the office, which is new for me. 

Employees leave their manager, not their company.  Be the boss that  gives employees a reason to stay.
