Sahera's Story

The world today is facing a “GLC “: a global leadership crisis, as we desperately look towards our leaders for vision and inspiration only to be disappointed time and again. I believe the answer is within each one of us to step into leadership, find our passion, and live with courage and conviction so that we can all positively impact our world and inspire others to be the best of themselves. Through self-leadership and leading from the “Inside–out”, ordinary people find the power to achieve extraordinary things, however big or small the contribution.


I founded “Arete: Full Potential” (Arete: to achieve your potential through your Purpose) to fulfill my mission of creating Leaders for a
Better world in corporate and community. This corporate leadership consulting firm has taken me around the world in Africa, Asia, and Europe designing and delivering high potential and executive leadership programs, organizational culture change workshops, and helping leaders realise their full potential. I have worked with NGOs, International Development organisations, civil society organisations to strengthen and scale their impact through effective leadership and culture solutions. Projects have taken me to Kenya (my birthplace) Uganda, Nigeria, Senegal, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan. 


I am now excited to take my 15+ years of global corporate experience to the Social Impact sector. Launching Worldwide SHEroes is the biggest adventure that has taken me full circle as I connect my global network with my passion for women’s empowerment so we can collectively rise to our potential, whilst supporting the next generation and under-served women to do the same. Our Vision is to see more women of diversity and under-privilege in positions of leadership so they can influence their world and to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It is with deep gratitude and a united purpose,  we embark on this exciting journey together.
