About the Principal
Mylena S. Sutton is the Principal Consultant at Voltage Vista LLC where the focus is on strengthening organizations through the design and delivery of leadership development seminars and human resources consulting (including third party investigations). Essentially, Voltage Vista LLC is an employee training company, and Mylena works with clients to address their people challenges.
Mylena’s career began in the public sector and has expanded to include corporate and nonprofit organizations. Regardless of where an employee works, Mylena believes that there are near universal truths involving organization culture and leadership that impact that employees’ willingness to fully engage. In addition to leading leaders into indepth discussions about their approach, she also supports the human resources function of an organization to not only improve compliance, but also to demonstrate how compliance efforts impact culture and perceptions about the organization’s competence and ethics.
The work that Mylena focuses on most is engaging with teams and leaders around difficult conversations, particularly those involving conflict, accountability, change, and diversity. Mylena enjoys the training space and uses narratives (story-telling) to give life to jargon-filled concepts so that employees and leaders can actually use them.
Sutton holds a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from the University of Georgia, a Master of Public Administration from the University of Kansas, various certifications, and hates boring, mindless training as much as you do!
