"Comfortably inspired"


 

The IECL Ignites speakers and workshops were the most enjoyable part...

of the program. It was so interesting to have insights into other ways of thinking and to learn the psychology behind how we think and behave. I would come away from every session inspired and fired up to reach my potential, and go about making changes in my career.

 

Ignites had a significant impact on my career, leading to a promotion...

 

and new job. I feel the Ignites team and community helped me achieve this as the network made me believe in myself and my abilities. The support I've gained has been unbelievable, and having the opportunity to attend Ignites sessions and receive professional coaching, has made a difference in how I behave professionally.
 

The Ignites coaching experience allowed me to practice courage and self-confidence...

 

which was absolutely fantastic. It was an amazing experience to meet every few weeks, make goals together, and be held accountable to what we"d discussed. One of my coaches said they were there to make me "comfortably uncomfortable", and it was absolutely true. He had me marching into my Managing Director's office and asking for things I would have never dreamed of...then I had to report back. It was a great partnership formed in complete confidence and really pushed me to where I am today.
