At VOCA we make work better by building individual clarity and team alignment. Using Columbia University's Executive Coaching model and marrying it with the best in adult learning and business wisdom, we take leaders and teams to new heights of trust and performance.

Team Looking to Improve Communication:  We were looking for training to improve our ability to sift through competing demands and decrease lost time due to poor communication. I learned a lot from your presentation on communication. The summary you provided is also very helpful. We will make this a regular feature or our work ~ Dr. A., Permanent Representative to the United Nations for an African Republic

Executive in Transition: I have had conversations with some very talented people that were also good listeners, but I rarely walked away feeling that I have a new road to travel. You have a way of listening that leads to a wise course of action. ~ Large-Cap CEO 

New Work-Group Forming: Our team doubled in three months. VOCA's team profile and offsite program helped us learn each other's wiring and apply that wiring to the work we need to do each day. The data helped us fill in the "why" positively for each other and know who to lean on for specific demands in our collective responsibility.  ~ Marci M., Nonprofit Program Director, Lt. Colonel, US Army, Retired
