About The Program

The Live Your Potential flagship program is a 2.5 day leadership and career development program designed exclusively for ambitious, motivated professional women who are ready to be more and earn more, give more and get more.

Award-winning trainers Dr. Jean Kim and Lilit Simonyan guide program participants to reflect on their interests, competencies, and passion, allowing them to set clear professional goals and a strategic course of action.

The program helps enhance leadership soft skills that are cornerstones for career success: self-awareness, self-motivation, social & emotional intelligence, communicating own value & voicing goals, and building relationships & networks. As a result, participants gain increased confidence, a “can-achieve” attitude, and a greater sense of personal leadership.

Why LYP?

There is a shortage in the Greater Toronto Area of comprehensive and compact programs that support women who are already employed, but who need certain skills or support for career happiness and leadership development. The LYP Program responds to these needs by providing an in-depth program run over two full days.

The Program is also led by 2 award-winning trainers, who are present during the entire program. This allows each participant to receive 1:1 feedback and attention from both trainers. We also make it a point to keep our participant number small, so that it becomes a more personalized experience for everyone. This further creates a safe and intimate learning environment, where the participants create a stronger connection with each other and the trainers.

Last but not least, LYP is a sisterhood and has a strong, supportive alumnae community of ambitious, motivated women. We take pride in the fact that our mentorship & support for our alumnae does not end at program completion. LYP provides continued opportunities to grow and connect with like-minded professionals by offering events/platforms such as the LYP Talk Series, the LYP Workshops, private Alumnae Networking Events, and the LYP private on-line alumnae community, where we continuously share resources, opportunities, information with our alumnae.
