Leadership Programs: Leaders are not born but developed

Our 6 months Leadership Program RISE empowers talented professionals to feel the ownership and confidence to pursue their leadership path within the current dynamics of the corporate sector. RISE is not a conventional leadership course that preaches and teaches, but rather an immersive journey of experiences that offers experiential and active learning, engages participants intellectually, emotionally and in connection with themselves and others and shapes a new narrative of culture and power.

ERG engagement: ERG key to inclusive & vibrant workplace

Powerful employee resource groups are key to inclusion at work and can drive organizational success. Often the engagement between the ERGs and their members are not consistent. This is where Hustle & Heart comes in. Through online & offline curated events we educate, engage and empower Employee Resource Groups (ERG’s). If you don’t have an ERG. We help you to identify, set up and activate the community.

In the current social and political climate, where calls for equity and social justice are more potent than ever, Employee Resource Groups play a pivotal role. They provide a space for dialogue, understanding, and action, helping organizations to respond effectively and empathetically to these pressing issues. Let us help you harness the power of diversity and turn your workplaces into vibrant, inclusive, and high-performing communities.

Our cases

Time to catch up

ABN AMRO
Field hockey is a beautiful sport. Fair play is of paramount importance. Yet, looking at the position of men and women, it is anything but ‘fair’. Women in hockey don’t receive the same opportunities as men do. ABN AMRO launched the program ‘Time to catch up (De Inhaalslag)’, to change this.

Hustle & Heart Consultancy was hired to do qualitative research to analyze the awareness of this program and to collect insights to improve the content & communication of the program.

Lift Our Voices

LULULEMON

Lululemon Lift Our Voices (LOV) provides a safe space for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) employees to connect, gather and share their stories, struggles & successes.

Hustle & Heart understands the social climate of modern society, and in partnership with Lululemon, we take pride in facilitating monthly online sessions that provide a safe, open environment for members of the lululemon BIPOC community across EMEA to ground themselves, to meet with & commune with their fellow colleagues.

Inclusive AKQA studio

AKQA strives making DEI an integrated, baked-in principle that unites different skills, backgrounds, experiences, thinking, personalities, gender and races around the challenge of “Creating a Better Future”. To achieve their vision AKQA has asked Hustle & Heart Consultancy to facilitate various workshops. With the focus to create awareness, educate and stimulate employee engagement.

We facilitated a DEI Education & Awareness workshop. This workshop is about being aware of diversity in the workplace as well as of the opportunities and challenges associated with it. We also facilitated an Unconscious Bias workshop. During the workshop we worked with unconscious biases in an interactive way. Besides these two workshops we also organised and moderated various Inclusion Dialogues Tables with employees. An intervention in which employees discuss their experience of inclusion within AKQA.

Untill we all win

NIKE

Nike wanted to organize a digital event to have a frank discussion about gender-based violence against womxn and how men can be allies. Gender based violence against women is usually thought of and discussed as a ‘womxn’s issue’; but because the majority of perpetrators are men, the problem is equally, or maybe even more so, a ‘men’s issue’.

Nike hired Hustle & Heart Consultancy to organize a digital event aimed at encouraging the audience to recognize and examine the attitudes, behaviors and situations that allow gender-based violence to happen, and to encourage men to speak up and become part of the solution.

Now is the right time to combine powerful words with meaningful action.

The Nike EMEA Women’s Network has been collaborating with Hustle & Heart Consultancy for over 2 years for multiple types of sessions on personal branding, public speaking and unstuck sessions. We love Shenin’s way of working: her professionalism and talent for public speaking, her openness during the sessions and her ability to bring the audience on a smooth journey to discover the areas they want to improve and get ready for the future. 

As a trainer, Shenin always strives for women to discover their strengths and be confident to talk about them. She is not afraid to discuss tough topics and blockers during the process, and she does this with grace. She makes people feel at ease by sharing her own story and experiences and this sets the tone for the group.

Each time Shenin took the stage for internal sessions of the Nike women’s network; the group left with so much energy and enthusiasm. Thank you Shenin!

I have had the pleasure to work with Hustle & Heart Consultancy on several occasions. Shenin has struck me as somebody very relatable, but yet somebody with amazing drive and bravery to go after own passions. She leaves everybody inspired to do whatever they want.

More recently I have worked with Hustle & Heart as a consultant for our Pilot Membership program. I really appreciated her carefully listening to your needs and wants and then sharing suggestions that are tailored for us. I am looking forward to working with her in the future as she is building an exciting portfolio of services/products that will help to elevate our development programs.
