“I briefly worked with Vicki at a previous company and when I had left and found an opportunity to have someone work with me in strategizing and implementing 7 Habits for Highly Effective People, Vicki was at the top of my list. She created relationships quickly with everyone and brought a unique perspective which helped customize the 7 Habits content for MTD. I would sit in on the 7 Habits class she would facilitate and I could see the light bulbs going off in the audience as she eloquently asked thought-provoking questions. Without her guidance and knowledge, the 7 Habits program wouldn’t have had the same impact! I feel very fortunate because even though I brought her on to help with 7 Habits, I personally learned so much from her and she helped guide me through one of my biggest professional growth stages.”

“Vicki has worked with us for over 10 years and has built relationships, business knowledge and organizational knowledge that is highly valued. She is a collaborative partner I know I can rely on who shows the utmost professionalism and integrity. Vicki’s style quickly builds trust and engagement. She has a sincere desire to inspire and connect with others. She utilizes this to bring top quality leadership programs, training and team facilitation, instructional design and coaching. We are now leveraging her in our transformation into virtual learning. Vicki is a joy to work with.”

“There are times when an HR Department needs to reach out for external help on large projects, organizational development interventions, and talent acquisition strategies. When Dignity Health has such a need, Vicki Grove is the first person we contact.

Over the years, Vicki has partnered with us to develop innovative and industry-leading talent acquisition strategies to recruit when shortages existed in healthcare. We have also trusted Vicki to perform organizational development work with newly formed teams to increase their effectiveness and work with departments in the midst or large-scale change. In all instances, the organization emerged stronger though her guidance. Vicki’s talents have been a gift to our organization when we needed immediate results.”

Maureen Sterbach, Chief Human Resource Officer

“Our Company has used Vicki to facilitate and guide us in training and leadership development programs. Vicki quickly and easily builds trust and rapport with even our most difficult, technically oriented managers who normally ‘turn off’ during programs. We like that she is not afraid to challenge individuals on their assumptions or attitudes.  She finds a way to do so while still maintaining positive relationships. Her dynamic style keeps people participating through the day.  She is requested by our employees if they know we have a choice of various facilitators.”

“I can personally say that I owe much of my management skills to you and the learning you have provided. You have opened up my eyes to new ideas, ways of working and I have actually honed my management (leadership) style based on the foundation I built from your classes. So, thank you for always challenging me and knowing just what to say in order to trigger ideas.”

Kevin S, Technical Group Lead

“I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Vicki on an Effective Customer Communications workshop. I found her to be an exceptional motivator and extremely skilled at facilitating a learning environment. She was well prepared and very engaging.

The barometer for measuring the effectiveness of a workshop like this one is seeing if the concepts taught are being put into action. I was able to witness firsthand a positive change in the relationship between the two companies involved. I am pleased to recommend Vicki for any leadership or training your company needs.”

Vicki provided assessment and consultative solutions that helped us better understand our gaps and re-align our recruiting function. She not only provided the benchmark analysis we needed, but she created process maps and a roadmap for us to move forward effectively. Vicki is both a trusted advisor and an extension of our team.

MaryAnn G. Miller, Chief Human Resources Officer – Avnet, Inc.

I began working with Vicki more than 8 years ago and have become her biggest ‘fan’. Having the opportunity to see her in many roles, I know and trust her as a valuable resource. Vicki continually has my business and professional aspirations at heart. While serving on the VSHRA Board, she displayed strong leadership in the areas of communications and public relations. As a business partner, Vicki is forward thinking and visionary, able to organize both tactical and strategic initiatives. When challenges arise, I am confident Vicki will provide creative solutions that fit our organization, mission and unique set of circumstances. I consider it a privilege and pleasure to work with her.
