My facilitation services help the group understand their common objectives, assist them in planning to achieve these goals, and enable the group to work together more effectively. As a facilitator, I am “content neutral,” so I can focus on ensuring maximum participation, keeping the discussions moving towards the session’s goals, and striving for consensus on issues.

Valerie-Macleod-Systems-ThinkingI have been facilitating for most of my career – with insight and humor I encourage, guide, and lead the group.

I balance process (what we are doing), content (what we are saying), and structure (how we are working together) to achieve extraordinary results.

I can help you:

  • Get all staff working in the same direction
  • Solve problems
  • Determine next steps to take
  • Reduce confusion
  • Improve communication and teamwork
  • Reduce costs and achieve targets
  • Create realistic, well-researched, implementable plans

I offer facilitation services in strategic planning, operational planning, teambuilding, managing change, strategic thinking, problem solving, improved relationships, enhanced communication, leadership development, training, and alignment.

Please contact me at for more information.


Without your work with our committees we would not have the same level of success!
