A 7 year journey: From an insight to a dream come true
The idea or the seed for the ‘Mothers as Leaders’ book was planted in 2012. Our founder, Steliana just had a new baby and she was surprised to discover how everyone around her treated motherhood as a problem to solve with baby routines, rather than what it really is – a baptism in leadership. At the time she was facilitating leadership programs and she was coaching managers. It wasn’t long before she noticed the parallel between leadership and parenthood. She kept a journal with her own reflections and went on a personal journey to meet mothers from different cultures, professions and age groups with the aim of finding out how they perceive motherhood, leadership and ambition.
Upon having her book published, she founded Mothers as Leaders to inspire (future) mothers to dream more, to learn more and to do more for the world of their children by stepping into leadership.
We believe that positive change can only when we address the entire system and not only mums. Therefore we support both women by building confidence in their leadership skills and organizations by helping them to create an inclusive environment.
