I'm already applying the insights.

The program was beneficial for me. My mentor Vladimir convinced me that showing emotions is not a "weakness". It made me realize that we are all dealing with essentially the same thing and looking for the right way to move our team and company forward. I will and already do apply some of the insights in my private life. And my kids approve :).

We inspired each other.

It was my first experience and I am thrilled. With my mentor Jana, we had a lot of common work and non-work topics to share, even though we are each from different fields. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to be inspired and inspire others at the same time.

Every meeting enriched me.

I am very happy that I was able to join the mentoring program. It's great to have a person with whom you can discuss different situations in the work environment and who doesn't judge you, but listens to you and gives you their point of view on the situations. My mentor Dalila was exactly that person. Every meeting with her enriched me by sharing experiences or a different point of view. At the same time, I was very inspired by her life energy and attitude.

Better overview & time management.

I had a great mentor, Barbora, who helped me to move along things I couldn't on my own. I now have a better overview of the projects that are already underway and I'm better with my time when I'm planning more projects. Mentoring has been very beneficial for me.

A valuable connection.

It's great that this program can connect you with someone who sees the world through your eyes, shares your common interests and is much more experienced than you and can advise you. It's only up to you what you would like to know.

My mentor was my inspiration.

Can´t recommend high enough! I gained not only advice and insight that helped me navigate challenging situations in my career but impacted me on a personal level as well. My mentor was my inspiration and I loved her energy and drive! I feel I developed and progressed as a person thanks to the programme. Also, the whole programme is very well organized. I already participated in mentoring programme through different organisation and Femme Pallette is definitely the winner.

I was able to think out of the box.

If you have a chance to participate in Femme Palette mentoring program, make sure you do! I got absolutely amazing mentor Lilla who had a relevant experience and answer to almost all of my questions and she tremendously helped me to develop my leadership skills and out of the box thinking. A time well spent indeed!

I improved in several areas.

I really love the program, before I joined, I was lost due my fast transition from pure development role towards more technical focused leadership role. I was connected with really amazing mentor Alaia and she helped me to work on several key areas where I definitivelly improved during the program. Example of key areas we focused on: stress management, handling difficult situations in team, accepting own mistakes, working on creating collaborative environment. At the beginning I was afraid, but programm is really inclusive and I would recommend it to everybody any time.

Me and my mentor clicked together.

It's important to click with your mentor. If you do (and I was lucky enough to) it can be an interesting developmental experience. I learned a lot about myself in a very non-violent way, and started to look at things a little more from a distance, in context. I believe that I understand my role and the roles of my colleagues better and this experience will be a daily help in my work.

I have clarity about my future.

The mentoring was an excellent experience for me. Just in six months, I have so much clarity about what I want to do in the future and how I want to work on my career. Thanks to my mentor Tina, I learned many things about social media, presentation skills, and strengths that helped me achieve my initial goals and much more. I would recommend mentoring to everyone. It is a life-changing experience.

I surprised myself at how much I learned.

During my time on the programme I surprised myself at how much I learned and achieved. My mentor Nicole stretched me outside of my comfort-zone, but without breaking my boundaries.Everything I have gained from my experience will allow me to continue pushing forwards with my current and future goals, and I am now confident to share my new found knowledge with my own teams, in the hope this supports them on their journey's too.

Best experience we could have.

Our whole team had the possibility to participate in Femme Palette mentoring program and it was one of the best experiences we can have. The organization is great, everything worked perfectly and I really appreciate it's only up to you and your mentor on what you would like to focus on. It's really valuable to have somebody who can help you with all aspects of your work and personality. You can develop your hard knowledge/soft skills but you can also discuss interesting topics/your struggles and it helps you to see things from a different perspective and thanks to that in a bigger picture.

I overachieved my KPIs.

Mentoring helped me with my time management and also to be more proactive. I overachieved my KPI’s and learned how to give feedback to my manager. I was able to achieve one of my goals - to become a manager. With my mentor, I focused on learning how to lead and manage people in my team.

I moved at least two year forward.

I had never experienced mentoring as such before. That is if I don't consider support from more senior colleagues in different positions as mentoring. Connecting with my mentor outside of my parent organization brought me ideas from a different perspective. The perspective and opinions have helped me in grounding myself and anchoring my needs. Through mentoring, I have moved forward at least two years and the reason for this is that I have gained more confidence and started doing things instead of just having them in my head or on paper. It helped me to put things into practice better.

Mind-opening.

I enjoyed mentoring program from Femme Palette. Matching with my mentor was perfect, and the whole organization was on point, including the preparation or collecting feedback throughout the program. The best way is that mentoring will help instantly to implement some things, or it will make you think differently; in some ways, it's mind-opening. Always beneficial to share ideas with more experienced people. Thank you. :)
