ENGAGE focuses on fostering awareness among employees in the workplace through a deep dive in thought awareness, emotional management, mindfulness and resilience. ENGAGE provides the foundational tools, skills and practices individuals need to be more resilient to stress and change in their world. By learning such skills, the participants can achieve their highest potential, increase their productivity and wellbeing, enhance their focus and become more creative and empowered.

Pillars of ENGAGE:

Empowerment Engagement Execution


BRAND “YOU” helps employees define who they really are as a brand and shape their presence in their organizations, and even the world. Employees are always representing themselves, in every conversation, presentation, choice or decision, interview or business situation, and therefore it is imperative for them to work on developing their personal Brand. Not only that, but getting clear on their personal brand will help them shape how they show up in the world whether personally for themselves and their relationships, or professionally by communicating their unique skills and the value they bring to their organizations.

Moreover, it will help participants apply their advanced communication & presentation skills to express themselves in difficult situations, including giving and receiving feedback.

    The “Brand YOU” training was an eye opener to me. The idea of aligning my values and purpose with how I show up to people was a new idea to think of. Identifying the difference between purpose, mission and vision was interesting and exciting to learn as well. I enjoyed the course with Dareen and Sara, I hope our company provides more training like these.

    Our Podcast

    We always enjoyed having real and raw conversations together. And these conversations were not just any conversations! They were the kind that make us pause and reflect on our own lives. Conversations that make us want to learn from each other and help one another grow into better versions of ourselves.

    In this podcast, we share with you some of these conversations, where we talk about personal stories and challenges to help raise awareness, motivate others, and get people to reflect and better understand themselves.
