Our Partners & Learners Love Us
Significant increase in proficiency on key skills
"I work in a department where timelines are crucial. We work on tenders with strict deadlines. The Harappa program has taught me how to manage my time better. The Learning Zone Model has been the most helpful part of the program. I've become better at framing relevant questions and writing structured emails while communicating with internal and external stakeholders. I've also learned how to make engaging and visually appealing proposals that help create an impact. My overall communication skills have improved because of the Effective Communication masterclass and I've become a better listener too."

"I found the program to be extremely beneficial: the biggest differentiator is that it comes at a time in your career when you need to be more inwaard-looking. It made me aware of my strengths as a leader and showed me how to use my superpowers to make my team better. The program has chiseled me as a leader. The second strong advantage was being included in a group with other successful and powerful women leaders. True learning came from hearing each other's points of views. It was a very stimulating environment. Thirdly, the study material was very thorough and the frameworks discussed were backed by academic research. Every resource recommendation was highly relevant."
