Momentum Leadership Programme is made up of three components.
Interactive sessions given by experienced moderators. The sessions involve experiential learning, lively discussions, short videos, case studies and Q&A focused on specific leadership qualities. Duration: 1 hour once a month.
Social impact empowers each participant to make a positive impact in the community. Each participant can choose which charity she would like to work with. Duration: 1 hour per month.
With the help of a mentor each participant sets personal goals to develop key leadership skills in their own lives. Duration: 20-30 minutes once a month, scheduled according to the availability of both mentor and mentee.
Each person has what it takes to be someone great. Momentum Leadership helps young women to unlock the potential that lies within them. It creates the environment for each participant to discover her capacity and gives her the tools to become her personal best.
We are committed to help young women aspire to have a deep, positive and lasting impact on people, the work place and society; to inspire leaders to work with a spirit of service and integrity.
Our mission is articulated in the programme’s content and carried-out by the young professionals who want to support young women in reaching their potential.

MAPPING YOUR WAY
Your dream starts today. ‘One thing at a time’ theory.
Build a habit loop: failure is not the end if we take advantage of it. Importance of feedback. Learn from others. Learn from your mistakes.
JUST DO IT!
To get good at anything you need to work hard. Effort is good and helps you grow.
REACH OUT TO REACH UP
See yourself as an instrument, not an end. What is the small part you will work on?
DON’T SETTLE FOR LESS
Be resourceful. Be autonomous. How to work well and develop high standards.
STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD
Critical thinking: basis of healthy inquiry.
SEIZE THE MOMENT
What do they have that I do not have?
Croatia Social Project
As part of the Momentum Programme, a group of participants joined for a social project in Croatia in July of this year. This project (second year running) aims to help a small community located at the border between Bosnia and Croatia. Working side by side with Mayor of the locality, we seek to help in some small way this community that were entirely destroyed during the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990's. Our aim is to help but in fact we receive much more. We experience that incredible generosity and warmth of the village and despite language differences we all thoroughly enjoy and get so much from our stay there.
