AMBASSADOR TESTIMONIALS. A GLOBAL
COMMUNITY OF COLLECTIVE LEADERS...
Be inspired by the experiences of our ambassadors, and how our programmes impacted them on a personal and organisational level. Many different people and organisations are involved with our work. The community is constantly growing, and more and more people will add their stories.
Not being authentic is a waste of time and energy.
I was looking for a sense of direction to move my career forward when I started with the Collective Leadership programme. I really liked the programme’s emphasis on being authentic. It’s very powerful when you recognise the strengths in your authentic self. I realised that, like many people and particularly women, I tried to demonstrate and show more “masculine” leadership styles so that I would fit in. This programme encouraged me to be more authentic and bring my whole self to work.
This learning coincided with a Women in Leadership training course and helped me to step up, create and lead a diversity and inclusion group in my former company. I am a strong advocate of diversity and inclusion and encouraging all to consider STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) careers and realise their potential.
I learned that not being authentic is a waste of time and energy, so I look for organisations I believe in and in which I can be my real self. When I am true to myself, I feel I can contribute more and that I am creating more energy whilst using less energy.
