Frequently asked questions
How can you really help our retention rate?
Women resign largely because of a toxic work environment, lack of career progression (including salary gap) and overall burnout. Topics we teach and the tools we introduce will:
Streamline non-work work (meetings, presentations, people management, task management, etc.)
Guide clarity of thinking. Brainstorming that actually drives result, not just stockpiling would-be solutions
Foster new ways of seeing problems that will lead to innovative and inexpensive ways to solve them
Build leadership capability with empathy and accountability as its foundation
How do you measure your impact?
We can measure the outcome using pre- and-post-training focus group discussions, included in the service charge. We can assist you with measuring year-long impacts using API technologies for an additional charge. If you are interested in this, let’s chat further.

What work process do you use?
We always start with a “chemistry test” to see if we are a match, because we need to ensure you get our jokes (and vice versa).
We then listen to what your HR problems are. We will only give you a diagnosis and the prescription for it after we fully understand where your “pain point” is.
We will send a prescription/ proposal that details your treatment plan and pricing with no hidden costs!
Once we tie the knot, our instructional designers will start working on your bespoke course design, complete with handout, tests, homework and tools.
As soon as you let us know the email address of your delegates, we will onboard them and off we go.
We will end the course with a special code to join our peer-to-peer coaching community. That way, the learning never really ends.
What will my company get from this investment?
On top of the outcomes of each programme, your company will also get tools that range from low to high tech. These tools, such as productivity apps and hacks, are carefully curated to fit your needs, and we can recommend these largely because they are what we use in our operations, too. Some tools are free and some are a software extension, but the controls are always in your hands. You can subscribe to as many or as little as you see fit.
What do you mean when you say your course is designed with women and minorities in mind?
We recognise that while maths is the same everywhere, not all people have access to infrastructure, help, healthcare, childcare, funding, and safety and security. So we derive our examples and case studies from diverse settings. Not all the best solutions are high tech and not all tech can solve all problems.
We believe that the rule of thumb in design thinking is to remember that the solution we are devising is going to be used by humans. The fact that humans live in different countries, cultures and conditions means that one solution does not fit all. This company’s mission is to support women+, so our focus is to provide content that is applicable for situations that they may encounter.
How is the course going to be delivered?
We deliver it based on your specific needs and situation. We try to be as accommodating as possible in terms of date (including weekends and national holidays, which are different in different cultures), time zones and location (remote or in person).
We have our English and Indonesian centres (yes, catering to both languages), but we remote train our global audience from Abuja to Auckland. Participants can either join in as a group in a meeting room or from home and we will adjust the delivery accordingly. For individuals without access to computers or reliable Internet access, we provide e-learning access on our own app that you can use as and when your Internet is available at your own pace.
