Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know this is right for me?
If you have made it this far, feel that fire in your belly, and know deep down that you are done playing small and are ready to make a change, then I believe you already know the answer.
How long is the program?
The program is ten weeks, but you will have lifetime access to the materials and monthly graduates calls – free of charge.
I’m really busy, what if I don’t have time?
As I said above, this is an intense process, there is no point in pretending that it isn’t. If you feel that you can’t commit to your own success right now and make yourself available for 5+ hours a week (the more, the better, obviously), then this is not the time. However, let’s be real: there will never be the perfect time…
So let me ask you instead: how much longer can you afford to not have the career and salary you deserve? How much longer can you postpone your dreams? If the commitment is there, you will make it happen.
Please note that the program is very flexible: you can do the work whenever you want and wherever you are, as long as you have wifi. The Team Calls are at set times every week (Tuesdays 8-10PM CET, Thursdays 1-3PM CET) and they are recorded so in case of schedule clashes, you can always watch the recordings of these – you will have access to them forever.
I am an entrepreneur - does the program also work for me?
Whilst there is a lot of overlap between women in corporate and women who run businesses, the WIN Professionals program is meant only for women who are or want to be employed. If you are a woman entrepreneur with a service-based business, I recommend you sign up to the waitlist [link], to be notified when we restart the WIN entrepreneurs program.
I don't know what I want to do with my life - is this program for me?
If you know that you want to work in corporate (vs becoming an entrepreneur) then the program will help you figure out exactly the vision for your career. On top of that, it will help you create that role and then negotiate a great salary and set up for it 😊
I work in a start-up / NGO / governmental body / academia - does the program also work for me?
Yes, it will. In fact I would argue that for people in environments that aren’t traditionally labeled as “big money” (to put it mildly), it is even more important to
a. not fall for the trap that there is no budget there and
b. negotiate the heck out of it.
We have very successful WINners coming from (or going into) all those fields.
I just want some quick 'n dirty tips and tricks to increase my salary - is this the program for me?
No. The WIN Professionals program is transformational in nature. If you’re looking for fast and easy hacks, we are not the right fit to work together. If you want sustainable results that will blow you away, and you are willing to do the work, then yes, the program is for you!
I have an interview / negotiation opportunity coming up really soon, I don't have ten weeks! Can I still join?
Yes, probably. If we are the right fit to work together, we can often get you started in less than 24h after your application. And it is usually very much possible to adjust the program to the timeline you have. Warning – you WILL increase the workload as we will probably need to frontload materials and exercises.
I have a lot of mindset stuff I need to work on. Should I do that first?!
Oh darling, I hear you. If it was only about working hard and getting results, you’d probably be CEO now, right?!
Recognising that the source of what holds us back is not a lack of skills but rather a lack of confidence and limiting beliefs, including the related issues of impostor syndrome, fear of rejection, fear of confrontation etc, that are holding us back, the WIN program focuses on mindset first and foremost.
So whilst I am not a licensed therapist and can only relate to you from my own experience and the experience of the hundreds of WINners I have helped, please note that building up your confidence and dealing with limiting beliefs and fears that block your success is the core of what we do at WIN.
When does the program start?
We have a rolling entry, so as soon as you have filled out the application form and we have had our application call and we have invited you in, you can start. This can all be taken care of in as little as 24 hours.
How many people are in the group?
The group size fluctuates based on who I invite into the program and when you want to start. I can guarantee everyone gets the time and attention they need and deserve regardless of group size.
When do the Team Calls take place?
Tuesday 8-10PM CET, Thursdays 1-3PM CET. Whilst you are encouraged to attend these live (hello, inspiration boost!!), they are not obligatory. We do record all calls and you will have access to these recordings forever in case you have to miss (part of) a session.
Do I keep access to the materials after the end of the program?
Yes, you will have access to the WIN learning platform and all materials on there forever.
Who does all the coaching?
All Team Calls are led by me, Wies Bratby. Haven’t missed one in 5 years! And all personal coaching calls are also done by me.
Can I just take some individual coaching calls with you?
As part of the WIN program, there are two personal coaching calls, during which we integrate the learnings from the materials and Team Calls into a tailor-made strategy for YOU. And as a WIN graduate, ie once you have finished the program, you can add more private coaching calls with me if you so desire.
I don’t do any private coaching outside of the WIN program, because I don’t believe that an ad hoc approach serve you to the best possible outcome.
How many hours a week should I spend on the program?
It very much depends on your situation so it’s not easy to say, but count on at least 5+ hours a week, the more, the better. Most of these hours you can plan yourself; only the Team Calls are at set hours (though they are not mandatory and you will receive the recordings of these and keep access to them forever.)
When can I expect to see results?
That depends both on where you are currently at and where you want to get to. Some WINners go from no job and sending hundreds of job applications before WIN, to signed contract within three weeks. Most WINners mention serious shifts in their mindset and approach within the first few days. You will have an action plan so that you can start taking action on day 1.
