Reprimands, Reflections & Reverse Mentoring





Why should you be part of the 4word Mentor Program?

We know the 4word Mentor Program is a life-changing 10-week experience in which every professional Christian woman should take part. But don’t take our word for it! Hear from one of our mentees:

HeadShot1“Before the mentor program, I NEVER shared my struggles with those around me or asked for help. I didn’t want to burden other people with my problems. My mentor helped me open up and I learned how to communicate my needs without feeling that I am a burden. This will help me professionally, and in all other areas of life. The safe, structured environment made it easier to open up to someone I didn’t know very well, and helped us stay on track, monitor our progress, and quantify our results. I highly recommend the 4word mentor program – you will not be disappointed. I left this program with a lifetime friend and supporter – so could you!”

– Lisa DeLuca, Mentee
