I have done a couple of other Leadership Training sessions in the past and they have ranged from forgettable, to pretty good with a couple of key takeaways. The Compass women’s leadership program was without doubt the best women’s leadership training EVER for me. I thought I was doing well and was pretty successful at life personally and professionally, and very self-aware, until I saw what was possible in this group.
The best thing of all were the drop dead uh-huh moments I got and the practical tools for self-improvement in small executable steps. The tool kit of options from strategy mapping to emotional agility to the self-development guides and how to use them, make it very achievable to build constructive affirmative behaviours while exploring where to next.
The virtual version of Compass was not only as good as the original, but better, it upped the level of inclusivity and belongingness. I felt that all voices were heard and all people were seen. It was a such a psychologically safe space for a transformative leadership journey.
Almost as good as a group of women in a room is a group of friendly faces of Zoom! Especially in these times. Graciously convened given the circumstances and limited time the Compass crew had to pull together online facilitation.
I came to Compass because I needed to change the status quo, both personally and professionally. I had reached a point where I couldn’t do this alone. What Compass has ultimately given me is clarity and a pathway. Equally, Compass has given me a tribe, a group of women who have contributed so readily to the program with courage and humility. They, along with my triad, have shown me what is achievable and that I’m not alone in my quest to be a great leader in all aspects of life.
I personally felt like I had serious issues with my ability to manage the amount of work I had on my plate and be a respected leader. I blamed my age, sex and some type of hormonal mental fog, I blamed the new acquisition and whether I could fit in. I basically blamed myself for everything "Hell I am 50, I should know better, I have read books, have the app, paid for the coach" but it wasn't until Compass that the light bulb came on. This course helped me understand me at the core level.
I got so much more out of Compass than I thought. So much different to your ‘traditional’ training course – not even in the same world. I learnt so much about myself, things I’ve gone decades without thinking about, or dealing with. I’m grateful for the ‘work’ Compass has made me do – it’s been hard, but it’s been worth it.
