“It has helped me to learn a set of very useful tools for my day-to-day life. It also helped me realize who I am, where I am, and where I want to go. I was able to further explore my strengths and improve my weaknesses. I already knew that the opportunities were out there, now I also know that I am able to enjoy them!

Being part of a group and a programme of excellence was a deeply enriching experience at various levels. We share leadership experiences and learn to work with techniques that can help us overcome the daily leadership challenges. The work done with a coach like Esther Liska was essential to reinforce clear goals in my personal and professional development".
