Testimonials

"Perfect for complex organizations"

I am usually skeptical about online sessions, but this workshop was very engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed the practical exercises, especially the mindfulness meditation. This session would be perfect for matrix organizations where people face complexity and increased stress

Harris Mahmood

CFO at AkzoNobel

"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.

"Investing in yourself is the best thing you can do"

Positive vibes, safe space, listening to understand (not listening to respond) is what I appreciate most about working with Desi. Coaching helps you to find answers by yourself, from within. Most of the time it wasn’t even about the answers but about the journey of arriving to them. The sessions helped me put things into perspective and made me realize that many times things are worse in my head, than they are in reality. This brought calm and courage to face the challenges. 

Desi’s coaching is for those who have been prioritizing everything else except themselves. It’s time to invest some time to grow not only our bank accounts, but also our emotional and self-awareness accounts.
