From Chingwell Mutombo, Executive Director at First Step Initiative:

Two years ago, I was at a point in my life where I just felt that I didn’t fit the traditional model of a so called “leader”. I was struggling to find my place in the world in terms of understanding my own leadership journey and how I bring myself to the world as a leader. This search led me to participate in the Mentium program and I was assigned to Peg Rowe as my mentor. It is true when they say that when a student is ready, the teacher appears. Peg appeared at the best moment in my life’s journey and she introduced me to Tiara Coaching, the best thing to have happened to me. With the help of Peg and my participation in the Tiara TeleSeries, I was able to discover the leader in me. I learned that being my authentic self is the best way for me to serve in my leadership capacity.

The Tiara TeleSeries provided a wonderful platform for all us to be ourselves. I very much enjoyed the weekly discussions with the participating members. The discussions were very enriching. But most importantly, all the participants were just themselves. When we truly bring ourselves to any situation, it has a way of opening up wonderful connections. I can truly say that this is one of the very few places where I totally feel at home.

I have been using everything that I learned from Peg and from participating in the Tiara TeleSeries last year, to guide my life. I am still using the plan to guide me along the way. But most importantly, I have gotten much comfortable with the notion of my own power. Now I can say with much ease that “I am powerful.”
