“WLC was life-altering! Seeing myself through the eyes of my circle changed how I see myself. I used to think there were specific steps to take to “become” a leader; WLC helped me embrace the leader I already was. And my coach Lara always took what I’d learned about myself several levels deeper: self-awareness on steroids! I’m so grateful, thank you WLC.”

“WLC is uplifting, empowering, insightful, and timeless. Navigating women to be the best leaders they can be authentically and unapologetically.”

“The WLC journey is unlike any other. It may be a journey you don’t think you need, but once taken it will forever shift the path of your life. You will step into your full potential which will have an immense impact both personally and professionally. This is a journey you don’t want to miss.”

“WLC journey has helped me learn so much about my authentic self and how I can contribute in the best way possible both in my personal and professional life and be a leader that inspires and empowers others. I am so grateful for the support I’ve received from everyone in the cohort and the long lasting relationships we’ve built with each other.”

“The WLC along with my sisters in my cohort have awakened and rejuvenated my life by creating an atmosphere of openness and inclusion.”

“Through the WLC I’ve realized that I don’t have to be so strong all the time. I can let my guard down, ask for help, and support when needed. I learned not how I want to lead, but how I truly DO lead. I came into this program thinking that this is me in personal life – but this is me at work and now my mentality is this is who I am, in all aspects of my life.”

“WLC is a well-structured and well-run journey of self-discovery and growth, and the formation of an enlightened, trusting community. What was incredible was the bond the cohort had while gathering only virtually. For those that allow themselves to be vulnerable and open to self exploration, it is an amazing and valuable opportunity.”

“WLC has taught me how to live life to the fullest – as a colleague, as a team player, as an aspiring career woman, as a confident leader, be present as a mother to a strong daughter and in the process enjoy the journey.”

“WLC was a transformative experience for me as a leader and human. I have been through many years of leadership development and WLC allowed me to access a far deeper level of strength and resilience as a leader than I thought possible.”

“When I completed WLC, I finally felt at home: Thawed. My ego kept me in hibernation below perma frost, and then my inner critic began to thaw. I emerged to discover an awakening – free from what I should be and true to what I already am.”

“WLC is the most impactful leadership experience I’ve been through. Increasing awareness has led me to be a more confident and authentic leader.”

“Trust the journey, trust the process! Be open and you will love where this takes you!”

“The WLC was an incredible journey of self-exploration and self-understanding. I was a bit of a skeptic of the WLC when I first entered the program but with further exposure to Ipek’s techniques and insights I have seen tangible changes in my sense of self and I now have a more fully crystallized leadership vision.”

“The WLC has been a unique leadership program – unlike the more didactic programs to which we are more typically exposed, I have been able to more fully incorporate and put to use the skills that I have gained. As a result, the program has been the most effective at inducing long lasting improvements in my leadership approach.”

“WLC is an oasis that is expanding to become a sea of women that are deeply connected to their gifts, values and desire for how they want to lead powerfully in every aspect of their lives. We are learning to put ourselves at the center and in so doing are sowing the seeds of societal transformation.”

“The WLC at its core is about the human condition and being a woman, mother and leader. Sharing with my cohort members was so insightful because no matter the differences in our background, we all struggle with the same issues.”

“I am astonished by how much all the women in my circle have grown and achieved a powerful sense of their unique leadership vision.”

“The WLC session has empowered me to be more confident and present in the moment, allowing me to connect more with my team and peers to enhance my leadership skills. I was able to tap into what is truly important to me and focus on bringing that forward in my personal and professional life.”

In addition WLC has connected me with many truly outstanding women in a safe, open and instantly trusting environment that made us all share easily and develop fast and lasting connections.” – Christiane , VP Medical Affairs, Biotech Company

“I joined a WLC group because I wanted help and guidance with a professional transition. I left with so much more. With the help of this Circle, I left with: a written description of what I need in my next job, a commitment to forming personal circles with other women in my lives (these have given me inspiration and expanded my sense of connectedness in life), and a stronger ability to know what I need and to ask for it in my relationships — work and personal. I am a better person because of my experience with WLC.” – Kim Weiss, Founder and CEO Technology Company

“Through my experience with WLC, I become more comfortable with who I am as a leader and how I want to be with my teams. As a more authentic leader, I am able to be venerable and openly show how much I care to my team. As a result, they can be their best and deliver results beyond what we thought possible.” – Rebecca Vermeulen, Head Medical Liaison, Biotech Company

“I recommend this program to anyone who is ready to find meaning in their life and work beyond achievements. Bring your full self to this program and siscover your deeper, greater self. You will have a transformational experience as a woman leader.”

“The WLC program will give you a better understanding of yourself from the inside-out. It will also help you empathize with those on your team in a much deeper and more nuanced way.”

“Trust in the journey – it can be transformational if you are open to it. You will learn about your tendencies, understand you have other options, be more present, and bring more authenticity to your leadership – which will enrich your career satisfaction as well as your team’s satisfaction.” – Debora, Sales Director, Foundation Medicine
