"When you partner with Agora, you get the results you want."

Hi, I'm Valeyne (pronounced val-EEN)!

Yay! We've found each other! 

I'm thrilled you're exploring a potential partnership with Agora! 

Agora is a brave space where heart-centered leaders grow and lead whole lives, at home AND at work. If you're ready to look forward to Monday morning AND Friday afternoon, you're definitely in the right place.

First things first, I am a strengths-based coach to heart-centered leaders! Passionate, driven leaders who crave a life of contribution are my JAM. 

But how did I get here? 

Over the last 20 years, I led HR and Operations across 6 industries. I served teams of 5-40 people and supported executives to set strategic direction for organizations with 500-35K employees. 
Professional Education & Certifications
  • Psychology in Leadership Certification through Cornell University
  • Certified Professional Coach (CPC) through the International Coach Academy
  • Clifton StrengthsFinder Coach through Gallup
  • ​Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Training Practitioner through CPP
I loved leading people! I loved helping organizations increase employee engagement and retention AND boost their business profitability. I was making good money and working in great roles, so you're probably wondering, "Val... why did you ever leave?"

Simplest answer: I hit my version of "rock bottom". 

Picture me on the bathroom floor during Sunday church service in a panic attack over how much there was to "do". Or literally waving goodbye to my husband as our two planes passed in the night. (I logged more work airline miles than him that year... and he's a pilot.) Standing on the scale staring at 20 new pounds feeling like a complete imposter for trying to lead others well when I wasn't leading a life of wellness myself.

If you're a heart-centered leader, like the people I work with, you may have your own version of that same story you could tell. Living a brave, full life is NOT for the faint of heart! There is nothing easy about leading well!

But it IS possible. And the struggle to live fully simply means you're human, not broken. I'm living proof!

Strengths-based coaching was the ticket back to my truest, most energized self (still is!). It's the tool you can use to realign your purpose, redefine your strategy and most importantly, live a whole, heart-centered life at work and at home.
