“In many families, children grow up in an environment where their emotional needs remain unmet. A divorce, serious medical illness, alcoholism, violence are a few aberrations that hinder the emotional growth of a child. Unresolved feelings and needs get carried forward into their adult life in the form of insecurity, mistrust, unexplained anger etc.
In my experience, I have seen parents focus more on the basic needs of nutrition, education and physical safety with scant regard for their needs of belonging, self-esteem, and security. As a primary caregiver, the mother’s emotional state has a huge bearing on how she rears her child. If she is grappling with emotions such as fear, shame and guilt, it gets unknowingly transmitted to the next generation. Emotionally resilient mothers raise compassionate, happy and confident children. Empowering women is the first step towards building collaborative and harmonious families, teams and communities.”
“Over the past 20 years, I have been conducting leadership development programs for corporates. I have rarely had more than 2-3 women in a group of 20 senior leaders. Often these women would not be vocal during the discussions. Some of them would come up to me during a break and talk about things that they did not bring up in front of the large group.
From my conversations, I understood that what most of them needed was a safe space to discuss the challenges they faced without being judged. They wanted to discuss issues without being seen as females bringing up ‘female problems’. They needed support in getting unstuck from their limiting beliefs and mindsets. They wanted to hear how other women dealt with the same challenges. They wanted ideas on how to bring about a change in themselves and their environment, whether it was the office or home. They needed time to reflect and connect with themselves. Sometimes, the girls just wanted to have fun and relax.”
GLOW was born out of a need to bridge the current gap in the ability of women to source their inner power. Through our work, we hope to enable women to claim their rightful place in the world.
Our InSPIRE framework enables women to integrate different aspects of holistic leadership. Our interventions help them to enhance awareness and build capability in order to lead with their whole being.
