the mentoring approach we have developed is INTERACTIVE
what drives us
SILK MENTORING was born of a vision where women are equal to men, where their contributions to society are valued and where they confidently and authentically contribute their female perspectives, abilities and skills toward their own and others’ wellbeing. In spite of the great advances made in the last century, this vision is still far from reality, but we plan on doing something about it in our own unique way! Take the Plunge with us.
I decided to participate again in the (Apr.Jun2021) SILKMENTORING Program for Asia Pacific, because I know that whatever I have learned from the first time, will be reinforced further this time.
I realized that the more we engaged ourselves in this empowerment program, the further & more equipped we become because of the following reasons:
- A more diverse groups of ladies shared varied, multiple & new experiences
- We get to know more personalities, capabilities & strengths/weaknesses when we were assigned to different groups during every interactive session.
- Individual experiences shared with partners opened opportunities to understand better how life’s circumstances had influenced not only one’s happiness, success, well-being but also one’s pain, failure & the seemingly insurmountable challenges & difficulties one experiences.
- The Framework of the SILKMentoring Program had guided us in our analyses, evaluations & decision-makings to pursue the lines of actions we should/would have chosen in dealing w/other people’s nuances, circumstances & challenges to be able to live joyfully for our own sake & deal wisely/peacefully w/stressors caused by people in the different spaces around us.
- The fact that SILKMentoring assured us of a free, safe & secured space for our exchange of ideas, sharing of life’s experiences & be empowered by our fellow ladies, morally supported by their individual cases, gave boost to our otherwise depleted confidence, helplessness & clouded views.
- SILKMentoring introduced us to these empowered ladies who were there to lend a hand, to stand in serried line for our support & to become the “wind beneath our drooping wings!”.
Thank you, Russell, for your loving patience in guiding us traverse our individual path in life through your SILKMentoring Program.
Indeed, our NOBILITY shone forth through the Framework you so clearly & wisely delineated for us to follow.
I was privileged to join SILKMentoring along with other remarkable women. The program ran for 10 weeks and with every session, I gain deep reflections through the topics that were well-designed to fit every one’s personal journey. It was a pleasure to meet other amazing people in the breakout rooms and I learned much from listening to their stories. Russell has the unique ability to bring out deep insights within every participant and lead everyone into a profound experience of empowerment and discovery. She masterfully utilizes the tools available to her including her voice and her articulate messages on Nobility and Self-Awareness, among others. Her grounding allows me a deep experience of affirmation as she manifests words into positive feelings. All that I have gathered from this experience in turn allows me to take these lessons with me and apply it in my own profession and personal life. I am grateful to have been part of this program, and as I grow, I also become a support for others to grow using the lessons I gained from this experience.
