About Us

The Valiant Group helps executives, entrepreneurs and other high-performance leaders develop new competencies for the benefit of themselves and the organizations they serve. We help our clients integrate and sustain new behaviors, not just new thinking, to cultivate a quantum shift in results, so they can:

• Mobilize for thoughtful action
• Build vibrant, resilient teams that deliver what they promise
• Anticipate the opportunities and challenges in change
• Innovate and integrate
• Generate genuine, productive communication
• Find meaning and purpose despite stress

The Valiant Group believes that the whole person is present in every moment, every action…and we work with that “whole”. Our coaching is based on a unique relationship of mutual trust, honesty and creativity that allows individuals and teams to grow into a wider perspective and build the muscles of new behaviors. And since the work is profound, entering into it is always an act of courage – a valiant act.

Our method integrates psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, linguistics, ontology (way of being) social science, behavioral science, conscious embodiment and several wisdom traditions which offer unsurpassed results to individuals and organizations.

Annette Segal specializes in developing courage and new competence in leaders and the organizations they serve.

Emphasizing confident, accountable teams that deliver what they promise, Annette helps people integrate and sustain new behavior, not just new thinking.

Why I Coach

I believe people can live beyond the limitations of their circumstances and current beliefs. There is a difference between making a living and making a life!

People are hurting, yet their suffering contains the jewels that will liberate them into living their unique gifts and contributions to the planet.

Who I Work With

My ideal clients are change agents – resourceful, intelligent, successful.

I help leaders who are ready to face their fears, live life more courageously and make their unique contributions to the world.

My coaching work includes executives at many organizations: Clorox, Nikon Precision, Twitter, Cisco, Genentech, NASA, SpaWars, and many not-for-profits: SFJewish Family Service, Goodwill Industries and YearUp. I train coaches and lead Mastermind Groups as well as Coaching Circles.
