About Valeyne

I help create engaged workplaces through elevating team capability

Hi, I’m Val, Founder of https://agoracoach.com. I'm glad you're here.

Chances are high we will be great pals if you wake up every day wanting to be better than you were the day before despite fear, doubts or stress. While my resume highlights the successes I’ve achieved in the corporate world over the past 20 years, it does not capture the challenges I’ve overcome. Great coaching has made all the difference for me in moving through my struggle and into success. I am confident coaching will make the difference for you, too.

What gets me out of bed (and keeps me awake at night) is that only 13% of the world's employees are actively engaged in their careers.

At Agora we are doing 3 things to increase that percentage:

1. We help job seekers land their dream job in record time while earning a salary they deserve.

2. We help leaders execute holistic, strengths-based plans so they get the results they want while finding work-life harmony.

3. We help organizations accelerate business results through building leadership & team capability.

Our approach to development and growth is strengths-based, focusing on what is already right rather than bemoaning what needs to be fixed. Simply put, we help you develop your talent and manage around weaknesses.

We are also passionate about ending sex trafficking. 2% of every purchased package is donated to Refuge for Women-Chicago. You can check out more info about Agora here:
