“I see it as a privilege and responsibility to ensure that I impact whomever I meet positively and pay forward the gestures of goodwill that have abundantly been part of my life. I do believe that it is God’s will that that is my purpose”, says Shamona Barath CA(SA), past LEMS (Leadership Evolution Masterclass Series) participant. 


"I alone cannot change the world,
but I can cast a stone across the water
to create many ripples."

When Shamona joined LEMS, she was searching for clarity on her own purpose and value, in need of a confidence boost as well as a powerful, supportive community.

On her LEMS journey, Shamona says, “Apart from the clarity and focus that allowed me to make critical career choices, the lessons learnt during LEMS have made me feel more positive and confident and the relationships developed with other participants have been invaluable.”

By thoroughly understanding herself, she confidently made the best decision that resonated with her true self.

LEMS is not just a training program, it is a process that allows you to see yourself differently, to become more self-aware, to appreciate the value you create and to aim higher in your career and all areas of your life. It is a group coaching program that brings together a sense of community, motivation, and support to make positive changes in your life. LEMS challenges you to not just follow the straight and easy path but to change direction when necessary and confidently pursue all that authentically resonates with you.
