The Women’s Negotiation and Leadership Program was very impactful; it helped me understand myself better and control how I react to specific situations. I also loved the group dynamic and camaraderie of the group – how can you not love Dr. Yasmin!

The program was unique because it was based upon improving the person as a whole as opposed to having the person fit what the program wanted.

It forced me be more introspective and to consider what my goals are and to be more strategic in my planning. There are also other ways in which the program empowered me, but I can’t verbalize it exactly. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this amazing program.

The make up of the co-hort is amazing. The most amazing group of women I have ever been affiliated with. I learned that I can really do whatever I set my mind too. THANK YOU.

The combination of Dr. Yasmin’s lectures, content, guest speakers, alumni coaches, exercises and personal reflections allow MWELP students to develop a more profound sense of personal and authentic leadership in a loving and affirming environment. As a result of the program, I was able to tap into a well of knowledge that I did not know I had within myself. And, I was able to understand more clearly and articulate my unique leadership style and how I could maximize it for more significant impact. I am confident that these lessons will prove to be sustainable, life-changing as I continue my leadership journey.

This program is different from other leadership programs that I have attended by bringing in individuals from various walks of life together to explore and share our paths.  It enabled us to fine tune our unique leadership styles by establishing accountability and our commitment to development from the first day of the program.
