Module 1 –  Friday May 13, 2022 | 10am-12.30pm

People are afraid to dream big and those of us who might like to dream. The truth of the matter is that many of us give up on our dreams. We throw in that proverbial towel when the going gets tough. However dreaming big gives our life meaning and without dreaming big you will never reach your full potential.

In this session I will empower you to dream big, in spite of your limiting beliefs. By putting you in contact with your heart. Working on your dream killers and identifying your real WHY.

Location: Creative Point Meeting SpacesKanaalstraat 132 H

Module 2 – Friday May 20, 2022 | 10am-12.30pm

The 3 C’s you need to invest in to start living your dream life.

1. The right set of competencies to deliver results.
2. Credible and supportive connections to lift you up
3. Inner confidence to believe in yourself

Especially believing in yourself and believing in your dream is important. When you lack self confidence you never unlock your full potential. Sometimes the difference in whether you succeed or whether you don’t comes down to one simple thing – believing in yourself. Also if your dream requires help from others, you then need them to believe in you. If you don’t believe in yourself, why would they believe in you? Shall I tell you something funny. Confidence is just a muscle.

In this session I will give you the tools to train your confidence muscle. We will acknowledge your self worth despite your limiting beliefs. We will continue building your dream team and work on the right soft skills to realize your dream.

Module 3 – Friday May 27, 2022 | 10am-12.30pm

I’ve always been a planner. An extreme planner, perfectionist and very organized. And, although I was familiar with the phrase “start before you’re ready”, I’ve never followed it. For years, I said “no” to doing anything before I felt completely ready.

What held me back? Fear. Fear of change. Fear of doing something new and different. Fear that change was risky. I’m guessing that you’ve felt this way too. We’ve been taught from an early age to research and plan so much that it’s become a hindrance to us. It stops many of us from moving forward.

But I’ve learned over the years that the power sits in the doing. Especially when it comes to doing something new or scary. In this session I will empower you to just start doing!! It’s time for action. It’s time to go from dreaming to doing.

Location: Creative Point Meeting SpacesKanaalstraat 132 H

Module 4 – Friday June 3, 2022 | 10am-12.30pm

You often don’t believe the effect structure & selfcare have on realizing your dreams and therefore we don’t prioritize this. Especially not selfcare. But I am here to tell you that you need to implement both to bring home the gold.(and DREAM!).

This module will remind you of the importance. I will give you hacks and to convince you not to negotiate on either. I will show you the importance and effect of both structure & selfcare on your dreams and ambitions. We will learn together how to communicate your boundaries and I will share lots of examples of structure & selfcare habits. So both become a part of your day-to-day life.

Location: Creative Point Meeting SpacesKanaalstraat 132 H

Module 5 – Friday June 17, 2022 | 10am-12.30pm

To live your dream you need to create emotional connections. You do that by telling a story. Everyone loves a good story. At this Power of Storytelling session, I will help you use your dream to inspire others.

While storytelling is extremely important, very few people master it. Most people don’t get started because they think that you’re either a natural-born storyteller or not. Let’s be clear storytelling is a skill. However, it’s a skill that can be learned and honed through training, practice, and the right mindset.

In this storytelling session, I will learn you how to structure, craft, and deliver your powerful story.

Your Teacher

Shenin Lebrun

Mother, Entrepreneur & Producer

Hello! My career started 17-years-ago as I joined Nike after graduating from International Business & Management. It was a dream come true for me and working for a global multinational corporation allowed me to develop critical skills and learn from the best in fields spanning across marketing, storytelling and sales. As a woman, I climbed the corporate ladder from a rookie assistant to an EMEA Director and I established myself as a leader in the corporate world.

My life has not been without challenges, grief, or disappointment. Nine years ago, I lost my dad to a sudden heart attack. I took away one major lesson from this tragic event which I wasted no time sharing with anyone who would listen: Don’t wait to follow your dreams and hone in on your passions now. Life can take an unexpected turn at any moment.

So in 2018, I took my own advice and founded Hustle & Heart Consultancy with one clear ambition: to dedicate myself to the support of all women professionals who want to unlock their potential and realize their dreams on their own terms. This work is essential for me and is at the core of the legacy I aspire to leave for women now, for future generations and for my amazing daughter Zohra-Lisa.

At Book Your Trainer, we've completed some great programs

The feeling of success among our members translates into a better sense of self. Of course, a cosmetic change affects how you feel. But a healthy self-image has much more influence on how you perform and present yourself in the workplace. If you don’t believe in yourself, how can you convince others to? The rationale behind why you want something and what your ultimate goal is paints an interesting journey for you. I’m here to walk the path together with a backpack full of guidance. It remains your story.

My answer to what a healthy lifestyle can mean for your career describes a comprehensive picture with a start between your ears. A program to change you cosmetically, make you feel fitter, or run faster can be written by multiple trainers for you. There are many good trainers in Amsterdam. I even have a few favorites that I follow. I just don’t believe that starting from the outside in is the right order. Love yourself first. Help yourself. Explore yourself. Heal yourself. Make the necessary changes, make the right decisions, do what suits you, and move in your power because of it.

As a fitness and health profession I focus on changing lives or rather lifestyles through sports and fitness.

The aim is to assist you in becoming the best healthy version of yourself.  Physically and mentally! I practice my work in every location. I believe we can train and get fit anywhere. From the great outdoors to, school gyms and or private corporate office gyms.

3 valuable health tips 
– Stay active. Start by moving a little more each day, once you’ve got that under control. Start training as if a gold medal is on the line. 
– Make the time to rest. Get those 6-8 hours sleep. Power napes help!
– Have balanced and nutritious meals.

I live by the following: 
Always progressing 
Train for today and tomorrow.

The Extra Mile: The workplace of Hustle & Heart Consultancy

At The Extra Mile (TEM), we have created an ecosystem where like-minded entrepreneurs of all walks of life can benefit from the synergy that arises when people go ‘the Extra Mile’ for their community.

We connect the entrepreneurs of today with the stars of tomorrow by working close with Schools and universities. 

It’s the Goal of the founding partners to uplift the SOUTHEAST area of Amsterdam to higher levels by inspiring people to work together and creating the platform for all of this.

Originally a banker, then transitioned to consultancy when I moved to the UAE.

Today in my role as a strategist and consultant, I’ve had the privilege of helping many companies scale into successful global businesses. We take a unique approach, —one that prioritizes inclusive innovation, mindful product development, and sustainable growth. My mission is to guide established and fast-growing companies towards a more holistic perspective on success. 

My three tips for a thriving life:

  • Embrace Your Authenticity
    Your uniqueness is your greatest asset. Don’t shy away from it; let it shine through in everything you do. Authenticity breeds connection and trust, essential ingredients for both personal and professional success.
  • Pursue Your Passion with Purpose
    Identify what sets your soul on fire and pursue it relentlessly. However, don’t lose sight of the bigger picture. Ensure that your passion aligns with a greater purpose—one that brings meaning not only to your life but also to the lives of others.
  • Believe in the Power of Possibility
    Remember, nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it. Cultivate a mindset of optimism and resilience. Embrace challenges as opportunities for growth and innovation. With determination and perseverance, you can overcome any obstacle on your path to success.

Through one-on-one conversations, masterclasses
and 360-degree feedback

my executive leadership coaching services and focused programs are designed to guide you build your effectiveness as a leader and reach your professional and organizational goals.

The tailormade training- and coaching programs are to strategize and practice behaviors to increase leadership effectiveness and professional satisfaction.

4 relevant leadership lessons for leaders of the future:

  1. Make time for introspection 
  2. Be brave everyday
  3. Listening instead of talking
  4. Don’t let anything hold you back

Being a business mentor is different from being a coach.

As a mentor it is important that you can serve your client by providing guidance, experience and wisdom gained by your own experience. The goal is to offer insights into navigating challenges making strategic decisions and developing professionally. 

Each phase of the business comes with challenges and opportunities. It is my job to help my mentee to overcome these challenges and seize the opportunities.

My tips for every business owner

  • Serve wholeheartedly and the money will follow.
  • Add value.
  • Have a strategic plan.
  • Hire a mentor that’s been through every phase. 
  • Anticipate instead of reactions.
  • Know your numbers.
  • Know your why‼️
  • And remember You are the engine and the beating ❤️ or your organization. So, make sure you work on yourself and nourish yourself.

My best 3 Game changers to stay vital and successful are:

  • Kickstart everyday with two glasses of water – hydration is key to keep your energy levels up and flushing out those toxins. First win of the day!
  • Identify your personal ‘energy peak’ moments and structure your day around it, as much as you can, including slow down time and mindful meals.
  • Treat working out and moving your body as two separate activities. Mix them up, play around with what works best for you. All about staying active and feeling great!
