“It's really changed how I show up as a leader.”

“I had gone from Engineer to Senior Manager, but somehow those signals were not enough to prove to me I was actually qualified for my job. I thought I was lucky, or was the right place at the right time. I remember Shivani said: ‘If you don't believe in yourself, how can you expect anyone else to believe in you?’ And that simple sentence really hit home for me. I’m more confident in how I show up to all the meetings, whether I attend them, or I host them. And it's really changed how I show up as a leader. So truthfully, Ascend has been life changing for me.”

Shivani Berry is the Founder and CEO of Ascend. She's a leadership coach and experienced leader at top-tier companies including PayPal, Credit Suisse, GetYourGuide and Intercom.

She has an MBA from Harvard Business School, and is passionate about supporting women to excel as leaders by providing proven strategies, frameworks and the soft skills required to succeed.

Working in corporate environments, Shivani quickly realized that good, data-driven ideas and hard work aren’t enough to get buy-in or ascend to influential senior positions.

She founded Ascend to teach women the critical leadership skills required to get promoted and confidently show up as a leader, including how to build relationships, influence effectively and inspire teams.

Ascend’s programs and resources offer the critical guidance Shivani wished she had when she was transitioning to a management role, including proven tools, strategies, frameworks and a supportive community of high-achieving leaders.

"I now have the confidence to lead my team."

"I had read a lot of books about making the transition to manager but I still lacked confidence. I now have the confidence to lead my team. I have frameworks that I can leverage in all types of meetings. I joined Ascend when I had a lot on my plate and this created so much clarity and a safe space for me. It was an amazing decision."

"I am now a stronger cross-functional partner which has helped me drive projects in a more effective way."

"This [program] not only gave me the confidence to take on a leadership position, but I am now a stronger cross-functional partner which has helped me drive projects in a more effective way. I would tell anyone considering this program that you can never go broke investing in yourself. If Shivani comes out with more programs in the future, I wouldn’t hesitate to sign up!"
