Invaluable confidence & skill boost.
The Femme Pallette mentoring scheme provided me with something I haven't been able to find with other mentors before. I worked with my mentor Zuzana for 6 months and in this time, she was able to work through 3 key areas of development with me, providing unique insight, ways of thinking, and smart ways forward. Zuzanas time has been invaluable, providing me with confidence and so many skills that I will take forward with me for the rest of my career.

Learned to speak up.
With the mentoring i was able to learn how to speak and communicate with my coworkers and my manager. Before to start, i was always afraid to ask or of the reactions of the people, but during the time i was in the mentoring my self confidence to speak and in my daily tasks increased.

Everyone should have a mentor.
I think everyone should have a mentor. Life is a journey and there is always something to learn and a new perspective to see. My mentor Anna has always listened, never judged me and helped me to gain much needed confidence. The mentoring program allowed me to grow in my job, but also as a person.

Boosted my confidence.
I never had a mentor in my life and Iva is my very first mentor. She helped me alot in many things that were happening at my job and my private life. She taught me how great to have someone who will be listening me and giving me tips on how to make things better. I feel more confident now and I will never forget this experience. I wish I could help people out like Iva in the future.

It was transformational.
My coaching sessions were transformational. Miša was very thoughtful and empathic. I felt a very deep connection and that she understood my problems and concerns. She guided me to face my fears and find my inner strength. Through different exercises during our sessions, I could visualize my future, come to terms with my past, and unlock my power within. This helped me show up differently in my personal and professional life. I felt that I let go of doubts and regrets, and became more present and confident. Throughout our sessions, Miša posed thought-provoking questions that helped me see different paths I can take to achieve my dreams. I feel empowered and at peace. The learnings of these sessions will stay with me for life.

Gained much more than expected.

I worked with Anna as a mentor during 6 months. My main goals were to get more clear on my career development strategy and make solid steps towards my career ambitions. Now, looking back I see that this mentoring program with Anna gave me much more than I expected. I feel much more confident in myself as a professional and see many possibilities in applying my skills and abilities in the direction that fulfills my dream career. I am especially grateful to Anna for her empathetic listening and challenging me, and a lot of invaluable advice she gave me very mentoring session.

Discovered a power within me.

The Leadership Program of Femme Palette has been a true blessing in my life. I have discovered a power within me that I didn't know about thanks to all their workshops and mentoring sessions, became more confident and have a clear vision of what to do to keep making progress in my life - as a professional and as an individual. I would recommend it a thousand times to everyone! :-)

New perspectives discovered.

My lack of self-confidence make me apply for the program. I am just in the middle of it, and I can honestly say, that the things my mentor show/say me, opened new perspectives to me. To get another point of view from someone more experienced, who is here to help me is really mind-blowing.

I knew I'd do just fine.

Doing business and not having friends or family that are on the same ship is hard. They don't understand your passion and your drive.
And then you come along FP and their amazing mentors, like mine, Lenka - you have got your support group, your mentor and you know instantly, you'll do just fine.

I became more confident.

This was my first experience with mentoring and it was great since the beggining. I am very greatful that FP matched me with Barbora and we could share this experience together. My mentor is super skilled  and she guided me very well with every single topic that I needed. Thanks to it I am more confident at my job and I can look at some tasks from different perspective.

Mentorka mi dala kuráž.

Olga je skvělá mentorka a já jsem nesmírně ráda, že jsem ji díky Femme Palette potkala. Pomohla mi se začátkem, který byl pro mne velmi těžký a nasměrovala mne kam dál, dala mi spoustu informací a hlavně ten správný pohled na situaci. Její zkušenosti mne obohatily a hlavně dodaly kuráž. Bohužel se nám do mentoringu vloudil koronavirus a celá pandemie, tato situace byla i pro mne velkou komplikací a tak jsem musela mentoring úplně zastavit a domluvit se s Olgou. Pomalu se vracíme do běžných kolejí a doufám, že je vše na lepší cestě, abych se mohla i já začít věnovat svému cíli v mentoringu.
