“My experience with this group of women who are my friends now, is that each of us were free to express ourselves, our feelings, thoughts, ideas and in the end we all went home holding a piece of the whole story that meant so much in our lives, .i.e. our dreams, our goals and wanting to make a difference in our lives and the lives of our loved ones. I also experienced that when women come together there is this special tenderness and nurturing energy that lifts one another. I got to share my dreams and I am now in the journey of fulfilling that dream.” ~ Thevi S.
"During the recent session of Sistas Network that I attended, I found the session effective and applicable to most situations. You also conducted the session very well and have in depth knowledge of the discussion topic."

Answers to frequently asked questions
What are your network meetings about?
Sistas Network attracts middle income women who are aged 25 years and above. Every member declares an outcome they have desired for a long time and can achieve in a 6 months period. They benchmark where they are right now and monitor the results as they achieve them.
A typical meeting opens with a celebration of milestones, followed by a learning topic and peer coaching. A life coach facilitates discussions, closing the meeting with feedback on the values and lessons learned during the session. Meetings are very high energy and positive with immense value gained by every member.
What are the expected results?
Women are empowered and motivated that we can create what we desire without compromising on what is important to us, the family. As we bring this sense of achievement, optimism and joy, it will create a ripple effect immediately in our children, partner, colleagues at work, family and friends, consequently the community at large.
How often does the Sistas Network group meet?
We meet once every 2nd week of the month in the evenings. The effectiveness of the coaching support process is to have discipline and practice (concentration stage) in order to achieve momentum, where the women are then moving comfortably onwards towards their outcome.
"After the meeting, I came home with great joy-the positive energy in the meeting was amazing! The support and bond between sisters is very encouraging. I feel a stronger sense of self belief and look forward to an exciting journey together towards achieving our declared goals!”
~ Cindy W.
Who facilitates the meetings?
Sistas Network meetings are currently facilitated by Founder and Life Coach Sharmini Hensen, a trained Master NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Practitioner.
Sharmini is passionate about empowering people to look for solutions within themselves and moving them into action. She personally used coaching to create value and specific outcomes to transform her life and would like fellow Malaysians to have the choice to experience the same with theirs.
As Sistas Network grows, it is our goal for Sistas through training and experience, to step up and lead meetings. It is about passing the torch and empowering Sistas as leaders in their community.
