A great click.
I found external mentoring very valuable. Especially getting insights from someone outside of your organization. My mentor Rema helped me to navigate tough conversations, negotiating best deals with my senior stakeholders. I also appreciated how she has taken time to meet me in person and I felt we had a great click in general!

A profound impact.
From the very first session, Coach Jana made a profound impact on my journey. She listened intently to the chaos of my ambitions and skillfully helped me navigate through the overwhelming clutter to a place of clarity and focus. With her guidance, we established a structured approach to my tasks, laying out a foundation that transformed my approach to goal setting. Jana's ability to direct me towards asking the right questions of myself, coupled with her knack for prioritizing, was pivotal. Her insights were not only enlightening but also deeply actionable, ensuring that every goal we set was both measurable and achievable.

Secured a new job and better compensation.
This has been a truly transformative experience! The initial goal was to plan an exit strategy from the job and strategically choose a slight career change. By the end of the mentorship, I secured a new job on the terms I desired, even having negotiated better compensation. My mentor, Zdeňka, has been compassionate, perfectly informed, and she adapted the mentoring to both my needs and personality. I have been recommending the Femme Palette programme on every possible occassion.

This programme was so valuable to me, I gained so much from it and would highly recommend to others. I had 3 key objectives at the beginning of the sessions which my mentor Valerie and I worked on together, Valerie was able to draw on her previous experiences to help me with some of my objectives and provided me with great techniques that I will continue to use moving forward. I really feel as though this programme and Valerie have helped me grow as a leader and a person.

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.

Impact not only on work life.

Discussing things that seem obvious and easy to solve with someone in the industry who you sit down with and who knows the context of what you're doing is something that I find incredibly fun and moving. There is power in the detail. And the fact that you can take the time to look at yourself through a different perspective is not only priceless, but it has a real impact on your life. Not just your work life.

With the right mentor, you win.

"The world is as blue as an orange", That's really how I perceive the world around me... A blue orange is unique... A uniqueness that you have to create yourself. And so is every woman... unique, one of a kind, one who should show everyone around her who she is, what she is, what her soul feels. Not to succumb to the pressure of the environment, norms and rules. But sometimes you need someone to listen to you, to ask the right questions, to open the door to other possibilities... And if your paths cross with the right mentor you have won.

Clear vision and newly defined path.

6 months of an intensive thinking about my career, while having someone to support and challenge me. That's how I would describe my mentoring experience. Even though it was tough sometimes to find the energy and time, my mentor was always there to help me push through. I have a clear vision now and I am already walking on my newly defined path.

I switched to a job that I love.

Through valuable input, calm presence, thought-provoking questions and non-judgmental listening, my awesome mentor Jana helped me switch from academia to Training and L&D and find a job that I love. I gained confidence, learned to take more responsibility and changed my mindset about full-time work. I now understand L&D better and have a clearer vision of my career path.

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.

It is priceless to have an incentive, reason, will, confidence ...and fun to share my job-related challenges with somebody as experienced, professional, helpful, listening, and warm like Christina. And, at the same time, to have an opportunity to go through difficult moments at her workplace. I definitely gained more insight into leadership skills and techniques and how to apply them to my everyday work life.

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! :-)

Invaluable insights and tools.

I recently completed the Femme Palette leadership program, and I have to say, it was an incredible experience. The program provided me with invaluable insights and tools to develop my leadership skills, but what truly made the experience exceptional was my mentor. Yana's guidance, support, and expertise helped me to grow more than i ever imagined. I highly recommend the program to anyone looking to take their leadership to the next level.

I worked with an amazing mentor, with whom we really clicked and it was great (but hard, do not take this wrong) months. I pushed myself, my limits, my expectations over the top and I reached for the stars. If you are thinking to join, do it! Money well spent!

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 :).

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.

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.

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.
