"Undertaking Authentic Leadership training with WALT Institute has been incredibly beneficial. Christine and Elizabeth provided the tools for implementing strategies to make positive changes, working towards both professional and personal growth. The engaging and supportive environment generated during the workshop provided the necessary push to critically evaluate my priorities and implement strategies based on choosing to do things differently. The most important message was learning that taking time to implement strategies to set yourself up for success is crucial to be at your best to lead authentically and have a greater positive influence on the wider community."

"I learnt its important to take action when I'm struggling with things, and that sitting around and over thinking my problems doesn’t always help me and so when I’m struggling I need to talk to someone about it, and do something, even just something small which makes me feel in control of my life and the situation I am in... I really liked this workshop because even though it’s helping me with my PhD, I really think the takeaway messages can be applied to so many aspects of life; relationships, career, health."

"The program offered me achievable and sustainable personal change that opened my mind to a different way of perceiving life’s challenges. It is through our internal response to challenging situations that we have the most control, both within the work place and personal life. Christine and Elizabeth are vibrant, enthusiastic leaders. Each module of the program left me eager for the next as I incorporated new strategies into my day to day working and personal worlds."

“It’s given me a lot of tools and information that I can research more and new ways to think and how can I put things into action. Knowing that I have the ability, the resources and the inner wisdom to do these things with courage, is great. The importance of being in action, not letting resistance and hesitations get in the way, trusting my own gut and my wisdom, the importance of affirmation has been really reinforced for me. Authentic Leadership is not about being a leader as the official title but leading your own life.”
PhD Candidate, Monash University
"It has been one of the most valuable knowledge and skills gained through my PhD candidature. I enjoy applying the concepts learned, such as mindfulness practices into an academic presentations or all aspects of my life."
