Steliana van de Rijt-Economu is a highly experienced leadership consultant who studied the impact of motherhood on ones leadership effectiveness. The mother of two rigorously researched the cultural impact on the level of expectation mothers face in early years. She interviewed twenty mothers from all the parts of the world from The Netherlands, UK, and all the way to  Nigeria. Their life stories are captured in the book that received in 2019, the Global WIN(Women International Network) award for contribution to the feminine leadership in the corporate arena.  Steliana’s book launch speech can be watched here

“A thought-provoking book, it will forever change your view on motherhood, parenting and leadership.”

“Steliana managed to make an excellent balance between learning about ourselves while connecting with a different world and have each day fun and adventure. This enriched my inner world and made me feel going back to experience more. I enjoyed mostly the way Steliana organized the overall agenda , by having a well thought structure, while at the same time flexibility to adapt each day by sensing everybody’s feelings.”

Gilles, Innovation Manager at Shell, The Netherlands
