Valor Founder, Sarah Milby, was frustrated by the management training she was given as she worked her way up in her career. Training programs were often solely focused on process, methodology and compliance; or they were just uninspiring and ineffective, assuming everyone learns the same way or has the same growth area to develop. They were one-time events, not experiential, lacking measurement and impactful results. After asking other executives how they inspired, trained, and developed their top talent and rising leaders, Sarah quickly realized she was not the only one frustrated with the available options.
While imagining potential solutions, Sarah couldn’t stop referencing her experience as a college athlete. She had a dedicated performance coach who helped her be at her best, giving her an outside perspective, strategies to handle increased change and pressure, and proven skills to prepare for success. Her coach became her competitive advantage, helping her navigate new opportunities and challenges. The lessons she learned from her performance coach carried with her off the field and throughout her career.
We founded Valor so that every leader could have a coach in their corner.
