Support your personal growth and help you design your team's roadmap to inclusion , innovation, reducing employee turnover & building high-trust environments
We can create conditions where ideas fly high, trust is valued, and employees feel supported and inspired to do their best work.
I provide diversity and inclusion consulting and leadership coaching with actionable advice to leaders looking for personal support or for customized training programs that reduce turnover, create high-trust cultures, and support high-performing teams for the long run.
I’m an Inclusive Leader, Diversity Advocate, and Certified Mental Health First Aider based in Zurich, Switzerland. My speciality is collaborating with leaders and teams to improve working environments that help them do their best work.
"We have recently had the pleasure of working with Valentina as a trainer/mentor with our team at EMEA Recruitment and I can only say positive things about the experience. This great feedback has been also echoed by all our teams across Switzerland, The Netherlands and Singapore."
"I've had the pleasure of knowing Valentina for the last 5 years. Valentina delivered training that was informative, easy to follow and found her communication style and approach, friendly, personable and open. It's a pleasure working with her and look forward to many more collaborations."
“Valentina is an exceptional person. She has great listening skills and has the unique ability to ask questions that go deep while providing a safe space to talk. In a short time, she was able to summarize what I had said in such a precise manner that I was blown away. And trust me, as a psychologist, this doesn't happen to me often!”
“As a first-time team leader, Valentina helped me improve the communication with my remote and on-site reports. I learned how to deepen the relationships, increase trust between us and create a new sense of cohesion and team spirit, as well as how to reframe the situation at hand and see it from my stakeholders’ point of view.”
The journey to becoming an Inclusive Leader starts within ourselves, defining our core values, identifying our own bias, and recognizing the strengths and opportunities of a diverse group of people. Those are the traits that will build authentic connections that inspire trust.
Once we have set the leaders' foundation, we are prepared to build the competencies of a high-performing team.
Defining the common values and principles that the team relies on, building purpose-driven individuals to transform conflicts into collaboration, and supporting each member's ambitions of personal growth to create a safe and sound space for employee wellbeing.
Inadequate Communication incurs an average of $62.4 million loss caused by overhead, misaligned work, incorrect deliverables & more.

In the US, 42 million employees left their jobs voluntarily in 2019. Costing between 6 to 9 months' salary in recruiting and training.
