It started with something simple.
“We were looking for long-range planning,” says Mike Strawser, CEO of Valley. “We have worked with Aliniti before. This was a natural fit.”
Aliniti helped maximize the effectiveness of the most valuable resource of all – employees.
Working with Valley, Aliniti conducted Trimetrix® assessments to evaluate each employee, identifying their strengths and areas of improvement by analyzing their behavior, motivations and values. “Trimetrix® helps you understand yourself better and your coworkers better so you can get more done,” says Strawser. “You can build more bridges and get the most out of people.” Then, Aliniti worked with Valley’s partners to decide which employees best fit the new leadership team that would help the company move forward.
Focus is key.
“With the planning, it was good to have a facilitator to keep us on point, and drive the whole process,” says Strawser. “If you’re left on your own, you can find reasons not to do it. This time there was someone there to keep the process moving forward. Aliniti really helped everyone focus, and the drive and the push has been there.”
The future is bright.
The planning period they engaged in with Aliniti resulted in Valley expanding into the Lexington market, growing their business in a tangible way. All of their work with Aliniti will pay off in other ways as well: “It will help us in hiring in the future,” Strawser says.
Valley is spreading the good word about Aliniti.
“I’m in a peer group, and now one of my peers is using Aliniti to do the same thing we did,” Strawser shared.
