Firstly I wanted to say a huge thank you for the session yesterday. It was inspiring, made me dig deep and provided direction - just what I needed. I cannot tell you how much the time I spent with you has stayed with me. I entered with a fair amount of anxiety, but left feeling emboldened, with a clear sense of direction.

Shana asked questions I’d never asked myself before helping me with my deep rooted confidence issues that I feel have been holding me back in my career. She helped me understand the elements of leadership that I need to work on – both my strengths and weaknesses. My session with Shana was clear, powerful and full of ‘a-ha’s’ for me on a personal and wider team level. I left with the belief that if everyone took leadership lessons from Shana we would see many strong leaders and teams with a clearer understanding of themselves and the roles they play in the world. Thank you for all the clarity you’ve brought me in just 90 minutes, Shana. I’m scared of what a day with you would bring!
