Unlock Your and Your Team's Full Potential with Inclusive Leadership. Embrace Neurodivergent talent to unleash Innovation, and leverage Intersectional Coaching for Lasting Growth
We can create conditions where ideas fly high, trust is valued, and employees feel supported and inspired to do their best work.
I am an inclusive leadership coach and diversity advocate. As a certified mental health first aider based in Zurich, Switzerland, and intersectional and neurodivergent person myself, I specialize in empowering leaders and teams to create high-performing, inclusive cultures that fully support neurodivergent talent. I'm passionate about collaborating with you to transform your working environment and help your team achieve 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.
