Sarah, Finance Manager in a multinational manufacturing company

Gradually, I learnt how to maintain my confidence and handle challenging situations. I built trust in a couple of months, and my colleagues shared

their positive feedback with me. They still acknowledged that I was less experienced but valued my new thinking and energy.

Ariana helped me recognise these values in me at the time I needed it the most.

I started working with Ariana when I became the new head of my department. The previous leader had an excellent reputation, and I had some truly big shoes to fill.
Just after one month, I could effectively build rapport with the team even though they were keeping their distance in the beginning and didn’t hesitate to let me know how much they loved their previous director, who was more experienced than me.

I have grown as a person and a manager.
