“When faced with adversity, leaders have three choices: avoid it, endure it, or transform it. We facilitate transformation.”
– Andrea Chilcote
We Listen. We Guide.
We Enable Transformation.
What leaders need now is not a statement, but a key dialogue at a critical time. What began as questions leaders asked as the world entered one of the most significant crises of modern times became Morningstar Ventures’ founder Andrea Chilcote’s core work. She and her colleagues answered the call.
Introducing the Two 3s Program
Based on compelling and sound leadership qualities as well as core development practices introduced in Andrea Chilcote’s new book, What Leaders Need Now, the Two 3sSM Program creates an opportunity for transformational growth and change in an accessible and affordable format. This highly individualized, virtual or in-person coaching experience helps leaders begin, resume, or enrich their development journey, in partnership with a skilled coach and a small group of peers or team members.
See Andrea’s video and brochure for more information on the Two 3sSM program.
Having watched this team evolve and grow over the last few months has been so rewarding. The safe space that was created during the time we spent with Andrea has been the best team coaching and development process I have been a part of."
What Leaders Need NowSM
Inner Qualities and Essential Practices
Drawing upon thirty years of experience as a leadership development expert and executive coach, as well as three years of immersion into the effects of a global pandemic on organizational culture and employee well-being, author Andrea Chilcote envisions What Leaders Need Now: compassion, courage, and humility. She presents these three qualities as internal capabilities that can be grown, honed, and nurtured through the essential practices of development, reflection, and acknowledgment. It is then, she says, that you can “begin to embody the leader at the heart of your being.”
Leaders with a strong sense of purpose, or those seeking one, will find this work simultaneously provocative and reassuring as we seek to unearth the potential in all for compassion, courage, and humility. The essential practices of development, reflection, and acknowledgment allow us to begin to examine beliefs, behaviors, and values and commit to being leaders who are most needed now in the workplace and in our communities.
We’re Here to Help You
If leaders are to take on the daunting task of transformation – of a team or an entire organization – (indeed, the work of leaders), this requires an inward look toward their own transformation. An executive coach acts as a guide, a mirror to gain awareness, a thinking partner, and a safe place for testing ideas.
Cohesive, high-functioning teams make better, faster decisions and tap into the skills and opinions of all members. They don’t waste time on the wrong issues, revisiting the same topics repeatedly because of conflict avoidance or a lack of shared commitment. Cohesive teams are a competitive advantage – and a lot more fun!
Often you get advice from people who haven’t actually “done it.” Not this time. Janet Barnard, former C-suite leader, who came up from the ranks to help lead a $3.5B business and was the first female in many of her roles, talks with me about courageous leadership. Her thoughtful and spot-on advice to leaders at any level shouldn’t be missed. Janet discusses her journey, what she learned along the way, and says, “You can do more than you think you can by changing your self-talk.” Believe it!

Have you recently heard (or spoken) the phrase, “There’s a lot of fear out there”? I have heard it a lot, though I’m in the unique position in which people often confide in me the conversations they have only with themselves in the middle of the night.
“In terms of getting results, relationships mean everything,” was just one of the benefits Carol Horner sees with team and self-assessments. As a 20-year Everything DiSC partner, Carol knows a thing or two about the immense value this assessment can bring in building foundations and trust within a team. She shares how adapting and creating “win-wins” through understanding yourself and your teammates has a huge impact on taking your team to the next level.
