“The program layout had a great flow and the module content was fantastic. I loved the added insights the Cohort provided as well and found it interesting the thoughts shared in the Coaching calls. I can confirm that this program definitely enhanced my life in little ways across many aspects. What I found most captivating was the mind-space it provided and the thoughts I was able to identify and work through, which somehow lightened me soul to the world a bit.

My takes from this course would be; I'll ensure more space in my life to think about where I am, where I am going and where I would want to be. Then trying to align that with reality using the tools I've gained from this course.

And now I’m driving by myself. Although still on a learner’s license, I’m confident that if I go with the same momentum, I will soon have a full driving license. After completing this program, I feel more confident in raising my point of view in the team sessions.

The grit framework I learned through this program works best for me as I’m a grittier person who can consistently work hard and show perseverance in spite of setbacks. The last couple of years have made me feel happy as I achieved my priority goals – thanks to Stef, my mentor helped me set my priority goals. I will apply the grit map I learned from this program to endure more happiness in my professional and personal life. Physical and mental wellbeing is crucial. I will try to follow the tips shared through this program to keep moving and meditating so I can take up challenges to have a smooth and positive change in my personal and professional life. 100% recommended to all women.”

There is still a significant gap in gender diversity and I am hoping these types of courses and support from other women will reduce for future women.
