Who is the wavemakers program for?

WaveMakers Program is for...

Young Professionals

who want to unhook from limiting beliefs to boost their career. Learn, experiment, and grow in a diverse community!

Managers and Non-managers

who care about their work and want to reach new levels of growth. Step into your power and feel more confident at work!

Changemakers

who want to outgrow themselves and become leaders in their own way. Make waves and move mountains!

WaveMakers Program is NOT for...

Experienced People Managers

who have 10+ years of experience in leading teams. You can become a WaveMaker, but our program isn’t designed for you.

Steve Jobs Jr.’s

who want to imitate past leaders without doing the inner work. With us, there’s no shortcut to authentic leadership.

E-learning Multitaskers

who consume one-way content at double speed. WaveMakes is a community experience that requires you to be present!

Topics we will cover

As a WaveMaker, you will look at yourself differently. You will adopt a leadership mindset and feel more influential at work.

Week: Personality

You will start your personal leadership journey by reconnecting with your true self. A deep dive into who you are with your talents, values, and unique strengths.

Improving yourself is important, but week 1 of the WaveMakers program is focused on something that falls short all the time:
- Strengthen your strengths
- Discover your (hidden) leadership superpowers
- See what others see in you
You will go from being your own biggest critic to feeling more confident at work.

Week: Insecurities

You will get a better understanding of your inner barriers and everything that keeps holding you back. Plus tools to overcome self-doubt and impostor syndrome.

Now, we'll move on to the tough stuff. In this week, you will address your weaknesses and (perceived) limitations.
- Self-sabotaging behaviors
- Voice of your inner critic
- Dealing with failure
You will stop blaming yourself and identify healthy coping mechanisms to grow

Week: Mindfulness

You will reflect on your daily habits and understand your engerizers and motivators. Looking at your personal and professional lives for a better balance and focus.

This is the last week of looking at yourself only. Before we move on to your environment, you will set this important anchor.
- Being resilient
- Purpose and direction
- Motivation and de-motivation
You will feel less overwhelmed and create a clearer direction for your life and career.

Week: Unconscious Bias

You will evaluate your own biases and critically assess your environment. A new toolkit will help you recognize biases and overcome stereotypes.

You're part of a larger system of humans. In this week, you will acquire knowledge about the perceptual operating system.
- Perception vs. reality
- Common biases and stereotypes
- Re-directing bias


Week: Communication

You will learn to influence structures and relationships to empower yourself and unleash your full potential. Influence interpersonal dynamics and perceptions.

In this week, you will learn to communicate more effectively and acquire tools to manage critical relationships.
- Dominant personalities
- Giving and receiving feedback
- Toxic work environments
You'll go from frustrated to expressing your opinion, needs, and boundaries more clearly.

Week: Image & Exposure

You will gain new perspectives on putting yourself "out there" and start taking up more space with your authentic self and what you want to share with the world.

As you conclude your personal leadership journey with WaveMakers, you will lean into exciting new opportunities.
- Authentic Personal Branding
- Self-image vs. external perception
- Vulnerability and fears
You'll have developed a new self-image and found ways to externalize your inner WaveMaker.
