5-module leadership journey to inspire self and others:
The training sessions have helped me to discover my potential as a leader and reframe my perspectives on how to best lead a team!
Senior Product Development Manager
The SMILETM Leadership Programme had been so insightful, breaking down different aspects of leadership into bite size pieces. Like the communication CARE model, giving effective feedback as well as coaching, which really helped me both on a personal level and at the workplace with my team. I would be referring to my SMILETM notes long after this training!
VP of Design & Development
The SMILETM leadership sessions have been SO AMAZING! They're game-changers ❤️ Earlier in the week of training, I was facing some challenges at work, affecting my stress levels even after hours. After a module on the value of coaching with practice sessions, I could reframe, see a different perspective and have a clear way forward. SMILETM has inspired me to look into accessing consistent professional coaching!

The SMILETM leadership is a very thoughtful program #LB has made to all #LBleads in all markets. It’s been a powerful platform for me to be open to how the leadership journey is actually not all about the perfect leader we could be all the time but also how we can be imperfect as a leader, which is ok. This platform allows us to share the blockers we face and how we can overcome them when they arise. The most exciting part for me is the coaching one. I have never known how a coach can impact leadership skills and how effective it is!

It empowers me to be a compassionate and authentic leader. It taught me three valuable lessons: communication, CARE framework, coaching, and being present. The facilitators were inclusive of the people joining virtually. I get the same level of engagement as people offline.

These sessions helped me gain self-confidence and be more self-aware by discovering different ways to become a leader. This training has also been an excellent reminder whenever I feel stuck in my leadership journey. The training encouraged me to be open and to build relationships with people despite our differences and opinions.
