Keep Your Talent Working Towards a Common Goal
Engaging and retaining star talent is a top priority for businesses today. And rightly so. Increased global opportunities and a growing thirst for professional satisfaction and personal fulfillment have made it tougher than ever to keep high-performing executives from heading to greener pastures.
That’s where Talent Management expert Valérie Lardy comes in. Armed with 20+ years of Business HR experience with major multinational corporations and an infectious enthusiasm, Valérie develops effective, customized strategies designed not just to retain your top talent, but keep them happy, engaged and motivated to produce the best work possible.
Leadership with Tailored Strategies
At the heart of Valérie’s work is the knowledge that effective leadership development drives organizational success. Leaders must master and hone skills that inspire exceptional talent performance: developing self-awareness, building trust, asking for and using feedback effectively, and actively listening to the needs and concerns of the team, just to name a few.
Valérie helps leaders develop these skills by listening to your company’s needs, then designing custom-built solutions often centered on:
Give your executives some “me” time. In her role as coach to Executives, Valérie listens to the professional needs and aspirations of your talent, and then helps them distill those ambitions into clear, actionable goals that sync with the business development environment. Coaching results in more effective executives, who can leverage their strengths while working on a sensible number of “tweaks” and performance levers.
To keep growing their leadership and talent pool, organizations must keep a close eye on those smart, motivated and talented employees who demonstrate great potential. Companies need to learn how to objectively and effectively identify these individuals… then show them love and encourage them to deliver! Valérie helps your company with every aspect of this process and works closely with those selected to develop and unlock their full potential.

I reached out to Valérie to design and facilitate my first EMEA HR Leaders offsite. Not only did she put together an extremely robust and varied agenda that allowed us to focus on the business, the team and our future organisation, but her focused and energetic facilitation allowed people to open up. Our team made great progress towards being more united and focused on the future: a truly impactful intervention
