“I am eternally grateful to the Breakthrough Mastery Circle for the transformative growth in my self-leadership that allowed me to discover my “True North’ my “Guiding Star”. Indeed once this is established, positive change for yourself and the communities we serve is inevitable and ultimately transcends boundaries with a positive ripple effect globally.”Dr. Angela MigowaPediatric Rheumatologist Pediatric Rheumatologist, Aga Khan University Hospital, Top 40 Awardee
“BMC transformed not only my professional life but also my personal life. I gained clarity, perspective and a whole lot more. I am a lot more intentional in how I run my days, associations that I keep, my self care, purpose and plan for my life and general impact that I have on others, be it those who report directly to me or even my own family. If you feel stuck (literally or otherwise), then, BMC will help get you unstuck. Forever thankful for a ‘rediscovered, intentional and impactful Mary', thanks to BMC. Highly recommended.”Mary Onguko – WanyonyiHead, Customers Relations, iSAT Africa Limited
“As an alumni of BMC, I can confidently say I became a better person and a better leader. Every decision I make is intentional and well thought out. I am a better communicator now as I recently did a 30 minute presentation to a huge audience and this to me is a great achievement as I have great and loved brands in the beauty industry but I lacked confidence to sell my vision. I learnt a lot also in personal branding and pitching. I highly recommend any woman in business to join Breakthrough Mastery Circle and they’ll be amazed at the person they become!”Rispah GakuuDirector, Oriental Exquisite
“My name is Christine Njiru Musau an executive leader and an alumni of BLT Mastery Circle 2021.Christine Njiru MusauDirector, Business Support - Africa, Compassion International Inc.
Being in the mastery circle opened doors for networking and collaboration with like-minded executive ladies who were also in the journey of self-discovery, personal and professional growth. I gleaned lessons and challenges from my leadership catalyst, the faculty, my personal board of directors, the larger group through individual coaching sessions, peer coaching, personal reflection, and collaboration opportunities. I fortified my strengths, identified areas of growth, opportunities, and was able to identify and consider my threats. I am in the path of learning, unlearning and re learning habits and behaviors’ that may trip or catapult me in my quest for growth.
Through this class I am now an avid reader and my purpose, worth and intent were affirmed.
I was re-energized and I am now going forth as a daring leader who will push through the discomfort as I live an abundant life and press towards the goal set before me.”
“The Change Has Been Gradual, And The Growth Continues To Be Transformational.Myra DeyaAG Country Director Malawi, Trade Mark East Africa
I am now able to take a deliberate, calculated and progressive introspection at myself, in order to unpack issues/challenges hindering my growth and in the same calculated way, determine what step by step solutions I can take. I am no longer bound by my shadows and fears, I am able to work through these, and use them as stepping stones.
I am slowly discovering a deep love for me, and with that love, the strongest potential. Living life is a joy, because there is always tomorrow, in which I strive towards.
The journey towards becoming my next best self, has enabled me to be more conscious of my impact on the teams around me, and I now constantly and consciously strive to inspire and motivate others towards a similar path, so that we are all working together to create meaningful change to the environment around us.”
“From the moment I walked into the Orientation class of BMC 2021 at Kempiski,Dr. Evah AmwayiHead of Regulatory Affairs East & West Africa, GlaxoSmithKline Limited
I knew 2021 was destined to be a great year of learning for me. The reason I applied to join BMC is that I had a hunger to be transformed, deep down I knew it was time for a change and BMC provided me that platform. My word for the year 2021 is OVERCOME, and with the clarity brought about from the numerous coaching sessions with Dr. Patricia Murugami, I did OVERCOME my fears and doubts and I have managed to move forward on what matters most to me and I now have a plan for the future both personally and professionally. The different speakers she brought in during the sessions, inspired me to be intentional about the woman I want to be and the vision I desired for myself. I must say that I have never taken mental and emotional wellbeing so seriously! I believe I have grown into a better sister, daughter, and friend just to note this is where most growth has happened because I had to check my work life integration and I did a massive course correct. I keep growing , I keep unlearning , I keep learning new things because from BMC I have developed a coachable attitude and a growth mindset.
Thank you team.”
“In the words of Alice Walker, from the book THE TEMPLE OF MY FAMILIAR,
“Keep in mind always the present you are constructing, it should be the future you want.
These are the words I carried with me as I joined the Breakthrough Leadership Transformation training program. I was seeking growth and change for myself. In my own selfish way to grow ME. To grow ME into what exactly; you would ask . . .Good question.
Need I prepare you that once you join the class all selfish agendas are left outside the door. Yes you will grow you, but wholesomely and embrace an aspect of togetherness and community input in your growth journey.Patricia KaranjaHead of Agency Business Distribution | AIG Kenya Insurance Company Ltd
BLT training and application of the lessons learnt brings with it vulnerability, re-assessment of one’s life goals and purpose. Vulnerability is a good phase to go through because with Dr. Patricia Murugami’ s guidance, this is where you then start to experience change and transformation.
I have emerged from our Circle a better leader, a better student, mentor and friend. The relationships I now hold are purposeful as I maintain a deliberate circle of Leadership Accountability. Output in my line of duty has also greatly benefited from this training and would encourage lady leaders in whatever walk and stage of one’s career to pursue this course.
Am I then constructing the future I want after the course, absolutely! I greatly thank Dr. Patricia and the team at BLT, for teaching me different approach to life whilst accepting and thriving in the stage of life and career one is in, as you blossom for the next.
And please as you GROW and RISE, don’t ever forget to LIFT OTHERS!”
“My name is Wanjiru Kanyiha, Executive Director of Kilimani Project Foundation and Chief Operating Officer of Think Delus Limited. I am married and a mother to four wonderful children. I had the privilege of being part of the Third Cohort of the Breakthrough Leadership Course from March to July of 2021. I can say it was an exhilarating journey for me, the beginning of a very important and life changing journey of self-discovery, self-awareness and ultimately self-mastery. I can say I was pleasantly surprised by the course content, which was curated specifically for women in leadership, to begin to introspect, look internally first and to begin to know, explore and understand ourselves, our weaknesses and strengths, to enable us elevate our emotional quotient and literacy and then only in doing so, can we look outwardly into the world with an intent to lead others, with empathy, intent and purpose. My experience was eye opening, heartwarming, uncomfortable, scary, fulfilling and exciting. I left a better person, mother, wife and professional. Ready to continue my learning journey and expanding my knowledge. I left a better reader, and a more connected professional, grateful for meeting and interacting with all the amazing women I met during the course, who have turned out to be more than just course mates, but an amazing support system. I would recommend this life changing program for anyone daring to do great and life changing things.”Wanjiru KanyihaExecutive Director of Kilimani Project Foundation & Chief Operating Officer of Think Delus Limited
