What Is the “Voice Your Courage” Leadership Program for Professional Women?
All women have a voice and we all have courage. How and when do we use them to make a positive impact for ourselves as women and leaders, and for those around us – organizations, teams, family and friends? Voice Your Courage Leadership Program for Professional Women is a unique international training program for leadership development of professional women wishing to advance their careers and to courageously use their voice while consolidating their authenticity as leaders.
This program is combining face-to-face and online training to inspire women to tap into their inner courage, and make the impact they want to make in the world. The program spans over a 8 months period and offers an experiential retreat, expert course content and access to exclusive coaching and training with top-class coaches and trainers specialized in women leadership.
As Winston Churchill was saying, “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” During our program you’ll learn to successfully use your courage in many different ways.
The program is best followed as a unity of 3 components: online group learning, individual training sessions and in-person retreat:
  • Online learning: 6 months training program, including monthly online live/synchronous training sessions and monthly peer-to-peer learning.
  • Individual training sessions: two individual training sessions per program are included in the complete program package. Additional individual sessions with our trainers, to accompany your progress and assess your leadership development goals, can be booked at a discounted rate (if booked during the program).
  • Retreat: one in-person experiential retreat at the end of the program.
We offer the possibility to enrol separately in any of the 3 modular options, however for best results we recommend to participate in the complete program.
Why Now?
As the world is rapidly changing into a new era of uncertainty and paradigm shifts, new approaches to leadership practice are necessary. This is the time for a more human, compassionate, creative, and inclusive leadership in all types of organizations. This is also the time for a leadership style which integrates and balances feminine and masculine attributes, for the benefit of the common good.
As women, we have much to bring into this new approach. To do so, we need first to acknowledge and make visible our skills and achievements, while developing and training new skills that are grounded in our own essence, so we will not feel like impostors.
Who Is the Voice Your Courage Program for?

The program is targeted to professional women from any industry, from academia to corporates and public service, who find themselves willing to move forward in their career and lack the self-assurance, skills or support network to take the next step in a sustainable and fulfilling manner.

Our vision is to create a learning community for women leaders to empower, influence and expand themselves and those they lead. To make it happen, we open the program to women who are ready to take ownership and responsibility for their own success, who are ready to lift themselves and lift others.

Are you ready to join us? Because as Wangari Maathai was saying, “You can’t do it alone. It’s teamwork. When you do it alone you run the risk that when you are no longer there nobody else will do it“.

Selection criteria:
Candidates should credit at least 5 years of professional experience, fluency in English, high readiness to take responsibility, a strong will to grow as leaders and to support other women in their own growth.

What Other Women Say about Working with Carmen and Irene?
Helene Badini Community Mobilization Adviser, UNAIDS, Dakar, Senegal
I had the opportunity to benefit from Carmen’s coaching and it was amazing to have her as my coach. With her professionalism, combined with her patience, kindness and simplicity, she supported me to reach my goal. I really feel better and happy to continue my work while taking care of myself and others. I learned a lot with her, especially how to say No and not feel guilty, how to balance the work and the personal life. I wish that other colleagues and friends in need of coaching will get a chance to benefit from her experience. Thank you, Carmen, for the great experience.
Andreea Enea Journalist & Content Writer, Denmark
Discipline and self-kindness” is like a mantra that stuck with me after having worked with Carmen. She’s not your average coach – her unique way of actively listening and offering support while being firm is a challenging and inspiring experience to have. Carmen has guided me when I was in a dark place, suffering from a strong inner critic and imposter syndrome. But since day one, her dedication, her patience and honest, practical approach has helped me see things differently, not just through my fearful lens. She was there to accept me as I was and also ask difficult questions, kindly guiding me through the “deep waters” of my mind. We’ve worked a lot around self-compassion, self-discipline, acceptance and accountability, which was not easy and comfortable, but necessary to grow and feel more at ease. There were lots of aha! moments during our sessions that helped me become more resilient, make better decisions, understand (and work with) my saboteurs, and have the courage to stand up and live authentically, one day at a time. What’s incredible is that I continue to learn from Carmen’s resourcefulness, inspiring passion, kindness and broad knowledge – even after our coaching time. While I still have the “roommates” (critical voices, fears), I befriended them in a way that empowers me not to resist anymore, but actually enjoy life with more courage, acceptance and joy. I am deeply grateful to Carmen for being my coach and I recommend her to anyone who wants to dive into a real growth journey to be happy, more aware of life’s opportunities and thriving!
Sarah Manion Health Coach, UK
Carmen has been my coach for the last 6 months or so and it has been a wonderful experience. I felt comfortable talking to Carmen from the outset and she skillfully challenged me while remaining compassionate and supportive. Carmen has helped me recognise and utilise my strengths and values and I have grown in confidence throughout the time we have been working together. I am now more connected with myself and what is important to me and I have learnt many techniques to support me in making decisions and discovering the possibilities open to me in my life. I would definitely recommend Carmen as a coach.
Marcela Izaguirre Innovation Consultant, Mexico
It was quite an adventure what I have experienced during my coaching session with Carmen. She listened to me truly and helped me to clarify my thoughts in order to identify by myself what the core really is. Her support and kind yet objective coaching was a tremendous help and had a meaningful impact in my mind. By working together, I managed to set up a strong foundation of what it is to live a life that for me is meaningful and worth living, and I am very grateful to her for that.
Rebecca R. Smith Sustainable Finance Analyst at Vigeo Eiris
I have worked very closely with Irene for a year and a half, receiving coaching and attending Public Speaker Workshops she led. These experiences were not only very formative on a professional and personal level, but also greatly enjoyable. Irene is a very versatile person with many skills and talents, with the main one, in my opinion, her great ability to communicate, effectively and inspiringly, and with great positive energy. She leads with a great ability to prioritize, focus on the essential, be effective, and manage the dynamics of the team, making it as enjoyable an experience as it could be, despite the unavoidable challenging moments of some projects. I have learned a lot from her, both as a professional and a human. I highly recommend working with her, both for business communication strategy, public speaking and self-leadership development.
Ester Torrella Holistic and Integrative Medicine Doctor
Irene is a polyglot woman, with extraordinary capacities in the field of communication in its many facets, including the artistic one. Added to her versatility and her personal charisma, she makes herself an essential professional to train good leaders into agile & conscious leadership practice. She has a gift for discriminating what is effective and coherent from what is not, when teaching how to lead oneself and others. It has been and continues to be a privilege to work with her. Thanks from my heart.
