About Alicia Barrett,
I am a leader, coach, and HR professional. I specialize in creating an integrated approach to leading people that is centered around success for both the employee and the business.
I have been an operations leader, HR partner, small business owner, and a yoga and meditation teacher!
I received my BA from Western Washington University in 1998. Soon after, I fell into my first business role working as regional leader for a small retail chain. In 2004 I left that role and went to work for a large Fortune 50 retail company in an executive role where I held many positions including a position leading international expansion efforts in Vancouver, BC. I was known for great business results, the ability to develop talent through great coaching, and building great teams through promoting inclusion and team work.
I am a certified business coach and certified HR professional. I understand the impact of talent on business growth and want to help other business owners achieve success.
Why Coaching and Consulting?
How I Can Help
I have extensive experience in leading teams to achieve great results, building cohesive teams that love to win, as well as developing leaders to move to the next level of their careers.
