    The Leadership Studio is passionate about helping you develop your leadership capacity. Drawing from more than 25 years of healthcare leadership experience, we offer concrete steps and practices that take you on a journey to Leadership Valor™ – the ability to leverage your experience and wisdom in ways that accelerate the process of providing excellent healthcare.

    On the way, you’ll gain:

    • New ways of thinking about how you engage as a leader, increasing and building on the strengths you already possess, in a way that is both feasible and sustainable.
    • Guidance to help you move beyond barriers and roadblocks and let go of all that is counterproductive.
    • Strategies for claiming your own version of Leadership Valor and sustaining it with efficacy, personal satisfaction, and solace.
    • Access to the leadership assets that are already within you.
    • A greater sense of ease with yourself and all you have to contribute.
    • The level of support you want and need.

    Work with us the way that works best for you.

    “Our trainer, Cathy Robinson-Walker was by far the best that anyone on this executive [team] had experienced. We thought that it might be hard for a civilian trainer to work with a military group, but Cathy worked with aplomb and grace and really helped the group to tease out the major issues of our reorganization and come to a working plan of what could be done with the related concerns.”
