But don't know what to do?

This is where Nicole comes in

We help leaders to expand their knowledge to take care of themselves, navigate change, and create an inclusive culture through a suite of services:

Our Keynote Presentations, given by Nicole Van Valen, encompass three transformative topics aimed at fostering workplace resilience, mentorship, and a healthier work environment.

  1. Resilience Rockstar: Grow, Navigate, and Thrive at Work: In today’s rapidly evolving work world, employees find themselves immersed in the pressures of the modern workplace, often unsure how to navigate the constant changes. Juggling work and personal demands for their time, energy, and attention, individuals face heightened levels of stress and burnout. Exhaustion should never be a prerequisite for success. With a focus on empowering you to conquer the challenges of the everchanging workplace, this keynote presentation is divided into three core areas: Discover, Design, Deliver. In Discover, Nicole uncovers the essential elements of developing a resilient mindset. Design equips you with invaluable insights to comprehend the dynamic landscape of work. Finally, in Deliver, we delve into the emotional aspect, arming you with the tools and confidence necessary to cultivate and enhance your resilience.

  2. Mentor Magic: Unleashing the Power of Mentorship: You will discover how having a mentor can be a powerful steppingstone towards advancing careers. Nicole inspires participants to embrace mentorship, unlocking their full potential. By tapping into the vast reservoir of experience, wisdom, and guidance that a mentor provides, attendees will gain the confidence and skills needed to overcome challenges and seize opportunities for professional development. By investing in mentor-mentee relationships, professionals can propel their careers forward, nurture their leadership acumen, and successfully navigate the complexities and landscape of the modern workplace. Together, they will build a stronger organization, rooted in a culture of collaboration, support, and collective success.

  3. Harmonious Leader: Generational Succession with Heart not Hardship: Having a strategy is a critical part of increasing employee engagement, creating a corporate culture of inclusion and connection to your organization’s mission, opening opportunities for talent development. With employees dreading going to work, not feeling safe voicing their work-related opinions, and not feeling respected or valued and thinking about leaving their organization, leadership plays a vital role in developing their employees. This forward-thinking presentation delves into the art of effective succession planning in today’s multi-generational workplace. With an emphasize on the importance of preparing for leadership transitions, ensuring that organizations remain robust and agile in the face of change, Nicole highlights the need for recognizing and harnessing the unique strengths and perspectives of different generations, from the experienced Silent Generation and Baby Boomers to the dynamic Millennials and Gen Z.

Each of these presentations by Nicole is designed to address contemporary challenges in the workplace, providing actionable insights and strategies to enhance both individual and organizational performance.
