Your Source Power Leadership Testimonials

“There is no way that Wicked Skatewear would be where it is today without the expertise, precision and guidance from Valerie Sheppard. As her intern during graduate school, soon friend and later a client, I am thankful each day of the opportunity to work with her. She provides more than just the day to day task oriented and report reading direction. There’s a life awareness in and out of the workplace that is imperative for growth. Also – her smile and mood brightens ANY room!”

— Bethany Semeiks. Partner. Wicked Skatewear.

“I had the pleasure of working with Valerie at Zyman Group during the years when we were doubling the business (or more) for several years. Valerie is not only a great strategic thinker but she is incredibly intuitive, articulate, and insightful. I found these qualities as well as her discipline and loyalty to be uniquely special because they were instrumental in her delivery of exceptional work. As a result our clients were thrilled because their business benefited; in turn we were able to secure more business too. The highest compliment came a couple years into our work together when a client hired her to run a major division of a Fortune 100 company.”

— Brad Gerdeman, Managing Principal, Zyman Group

“When I think of Valerie Sheppard, I think of powerful perspective and impact. She practices the philosophy of being “on the journey” with those she guides, as well as leader or coach. This “team member’ approach builds trust and gives her the listening ear people need and want. She provides a process for growth and guides the traveler in every step with both accountability and heart-felt supportive energy. Her holistic approach to personal growth truly helps those around her discover unique new ways to blend heart, body, mind, and spirit. Because of our journeys together, I count Valerie as both friend and colleague.”

“Many thanks for your beautiful presentation at our Wednesday Night Live program in Palm Springs in March.  Your message was a true inspiration to all of us on the importance of joy in our lives.  You taught us that when we can know that we are all magnificent essence, perfect and divine, not our little “me” ego but the greater “ME” which is our real self, we can truly move into alignment and know personal transformation.  Then we know Joy!  You taught us how to “stay above the fray” and experience life to the fullest!  We also love your book “Everything Is Subject To Change.”  You are a brilliant and beautiful woman! Thank you, Valerie.  We look forward to you speaking at another Wednesday Night Live program soon.”
