"Top insights on how to lead remotely"

We hired Desi to deliver a development program for our top regional leaders, focusing on collaboration, trust and conflict management. She provided new perspectives and was able to challenge the way our leaders think, leveraging her experience of working with multiple large organizations.

The program enhanced the leaders’ self-awareness and re-focused them on how they can be better role-models for the rest of the organization. It was very interactive, a great learning experience and an opportunity to connect with and learn from peers. It provided insights on how to navigate team challenges when working remotely.

"Valuable insights and resources"

The program was successful in further transforming the mindset and behaviour of our leaders, bringing them closer together despite working remotely during the pandemic. Specifically:

  • Increased confidence and personal growth in their roles
  • Leaders’ wellbeing improved as they are better able to take care of themselves and balance their work and life despite the additional pressures of the pandemic
  • Despite the pandemic, the business stabilized following a period of difficulty

Desi brings her personal touch to everything she does – from sharing her inspiring personal story of overcoming adversity to providing a safe and confidential space where leaders can speak openly without feeling judged. We also appreciated her valuable ideas and resources. We trust her fully.

"Inspired reflection and self-realization 

We partnered with Desi to deliver the opening session for the launch of our women’s network. The workshop focused on Self-Empowerment for Female Leaders. 

Right from the start, Desi put the participants at ease, defining a safe, open platform for us to be able to talk and share freely without fear of judgement. The session inspired a lot of reflection and self-realization. I had a moment where I could visualize myself as the leader I have always wanted to and it was a transformational moment for me!

This workshop was absolutely worth the investment. It is a great way to start a journey on empowering women in any organization.
