She exudes warmth and kindness and can teach and explain deep wisdom and daily tools for having a joyful and fulfilling life you love. She does this in an applicable, encouraging way that excites her audience and clients to take action and move forward fearlessly in their lives.” ~ Kim Somers Egelsee, Best Selling Author, Inspirational Speaker/ Life Coach USA

One of the Best Leadership programs I have ever taken, and that is saying a lot. This program, in 2 days helped me discover how to declare and connect my passions and gifts with my work. My self -esteem has risen and my life has improved drastically. Shajen Joy Aziz is one of the best trainers I have ever experienced.” Joan K. Doubleday, LCSW

"Thanks Mentor Shajen for these realizations. I have a choice with my life.  I'm happy every moment of my life... :) WOW! I'm amazed mentor, really amazed. I also think you ma'am. I always include you in my visualizations in times of success and defeat. I always think of the influential persons of my life, and it includes. YOU. :) Here's my list: Napoleon Hill, Mahatma Gandhi, Jim Rohn, Shajen Joy Aziz, Anthony Robbins, Stephen Covey and most of all the creator/ the infinite intelligence. This are the major molders of my life.” ~ Napoleon Jacutin – Phillipines

“Thank you so much!!! It is absolutely fantastic to be a part of this power house weekend training, changed me deeply!” ~ Eunjung Choi – Korea and Denver, CO

Shajen, this work and your training is so amazing! So many of us are becoming more aware of our GIFTS, and how to use them individually and in a team. Your program is LIFE CHANGING!!!!!!!!  Thank You ~ Cyrene Houdini- USA

“My process of training to be a leader brought up and out a lot for me. Some of what came up was difficult to be with - true, deep pain from decades ago that needed to be released. The training process was powerful for me, and I learned SO much about myself. I now have the gift of releasing that pain to make space for my greatness. The light that shown through after that darkness was intense and there were tears... of vulnerability, of power, of joy, realization, relief, love. I saw some of my own gifts more clearly than I ever have. Like the light after a storm. Beautiful. I share this because I know we all have darkness and fear and pain inside of us, and uncovering it, pulling it out into the light, is not easy. Growth is messy and uncomfortable at times. AND IT'S WORTH IT. One of our gifts is experiencing the process of acknowledging and owning all the parts of ourselves, forgiving them, loving them, and then releasing what isn't serving us and others, to make room for more of what IS. We are a powerful group and we hold the space for each other's process. Our truth is our gift.” ~ In gratitude, M Kyle Hollingsworth, Creative Director for FOX Sports

As a part of our truly amazing and very powerful "DISCOVER THE GIFT" (www.discoverthegift.com) Global Trainer Weekend, which was facilitated by Shajen Joy Aziz in Los Angeles, we also went on a field trip to Agape Church yesterday Sunday morning, where Rev. Michael Beckwith honored Shajen, her family, DTG and the Global Trainers and Ambassadors. ~ Yves Nager, DTG Lead Trainer

The Global Trainer program with Shajen Joy Aziz and her incredible top-notch team is perhaps one of the most intuitive and innovative self-discovery journeys one can take. Whether you plan to share it and help others activate their gifts or you are just searching to steady your feet on your own inner path; this program is the ticket. Be a part of the movement that has spread around the world like inspirational wild-fire! I highly recommend it. ~ Christy Biggs, M.S. – USA

“Her many skills include the ability to reach and effect change in the most challenging of cases. She balances her compassion and warmth with firm and consistent management of difficult behaviors. She is intelligent, diligent, creative, and passionate about her work. She works with integrity, courage, and great respect and thoughtfulness of her families and children.” ~Eleanor Anderson, Psychologist Master, Area Manager, Community Mental Health Center, USA 

I am experiencing the deep transformational work and teachings of the most powerful leadership and peace activating sister-brother combo in the western hemisphere. Great job Shajen and Demian! ~ Jay Ponti, Founder of Peacelinklive.org USA

“Shajen, thank you for creating our Ambassador Group. Through Discover the Gift and this group I have witnessed and experienced monumental change!” ~ Amy Rachelle, Florida

“I wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for being a guest yesterday on Whole Life Living Radio Network. I enjoyed your amazing spirit and energy in sharing yesterday. My minister listened in and was so inspired. LOL! She said, those two, they've got it going on!” ~ Sherry Gideon, Host of Whole Life Living Radio

“Shajen is very bright and able to read the culture and procedures of people and systems swiftly and accurately. These skills were put to the test immediately, as our year began with a series of challenging student situations, some at crisis level for the young people involved. Even though she was brand new on the job, Shajen proved highly effective in addressing these needs, working tirelessly with students, families, and school and agency personnel. She approached volatile and confusing situations with a calm, compassionate professionalism that helped everyone involved settle down and think more clearly. She was persevering, resourceful, and caring in her management of these cases, and we were deeply grateful for her presence.” ~Martha Jane Rich, Head of School - Thetford Academy– USA

“Shajen has been consulting me for years around personal development and communication her coaching and teachings have supported me in ways beyond my imagination. She is dedicated, honest, clear and filled with real world tools to live a more joyful life. Her deep compassion and stand for humanity are palpable at all levels. Because of her teachings, support and wisdom, I am living my Gifts every day.” ~ Dr. Jennifer D. Pollock – Electromagnetic Engineer for Tesla Motors 

“Her enthusiastic support and strong verbal skills in advocating for her students are always front and center, even when she is responding quickly to bullying or disruptive outbreaks with students she does not know. She once walked into a disruptive study center and was able, just through her presence, to create a quiet and organized study atmosphere. She possesses a rare combination of administrative skills, teaching experience, clinical skills, strong student advocacy, alternative education program planning, and social skills.” ~Sally Shipton, Guidance Director – USA

“When we set out to look for a person to take a leadership role in the elementary school and deliver teacher support, counseling, anti-bullying programs and discipline, I never believed that we would be able to find someone with the degree of experience, the skill set and knowledge of children, especially the ones with behavioral challenges, and with such a calm, kind, forgiving, and creative spirit. We are blessed with her presence.” ~Karl Stein, Principal - USA

“Shajen has a gift and when working with her clients and students. She encourages and supports them to help promote self-esteem, academic integrity, and a more positive school, home and work environment. Shajen recognizes and understand how schools and families need to interface and has worked to improve communication and accountability on both ends. Shajen’s expertise in the area of crisis prevention and educational support has helped our school become more efficient, effective, and safe.” ~Barrett Williams, Principal Sharon Elementary School– USA

“Shajen’s passion is being an advocate for adults, children and families. Her goals reside in helping her clients to receive the education they deserve while helping them develop the skills they need to be successful in the world at large. Her innate qualities of honesty and integrity are unparalleled. Shajen conducts herself with honor and takes great pride in serving children, and in doing so, allows those she works with to achieve the same. The students she serves and the systems she works in are made stronger and better from her input, experience, and presence.” ~ Erica Pearson, Director of Guidance and Counseling, USA 

“She demonstrates an incredible understanding of her students’ emotional needs and how they impact their academic, personal, professional and daily functioning.” ~Leora E. Black, PH. D, Counseling Connections Founder -USA 

“Shajen creates a climate and culture which empowers her students to be responsible independent learners who are able to make positive choices. She is a great advocate in helping them DISCOVER and activate new and productive ways to get their needs met.” ~Catherine Bell, Assistant Special Education Director, - USA

“Shajen has always impressed me with her courage and her compassion for some of the most troubled youth in our society. Shajen has high standards. She expects the best from herself, her workplace and the clients she serves. And what is more - she gets it.” ~David Burggraff, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist – USA

“Shajen has purpose and passion. The excitement and enthusiasm she shows when working with her students, clients and their families is authentic. It is real and it is contagious.” ~Scott M. O’Hearn, MSW, School Counselor - USA 

“Shajen helped me raise my confidence and step through my fear. She was critical for helping me activate my potential and my gifts. Shajen is such an inspiration. There aren't exact words to tell how grateful I am for my renewed spirit. I'll go home full of love and inspiration and sharing my experience to the whole family. I once wrote to her this in exact words “I always dream to seek for someone to whom I can share my passion with.” By now, it is no longer a dream because I am living with it with Shajen. I can’t totally explain but I feel extreme joy and happiness since working with her.” ~ Fe G., Phillipines

“Shajen is a gifted leader and teacher who can be believed in whole heartedly. If you can attend one of her trainings or work with her 1:1, I'm sure it will be magical, and all will be better for it. Since working with her, I have discovered one of my gifts. I possess a VERY tenacious will. I am learning to listen to and trust my authentic self. This is a testimonial to the power of Discover the Gift and an expression of my sincerest gratitude. Without DTG’s energy, especially Shajen, I may have been too afraid to find and use my real voice!” ~ Amy Rachelle Meador, - USA

Shajen Joy Aziz and The Global Trainer Program is amazing ...not only did I jump out of my comfort zone ...by saying YES to myself, I jumped on a big plane and flew half way around to world on my own, I met amazing new people and now have an amazing new family of friends globally and this is all before I got into the room.

I could write forever on the value of this training.... all I can say is >>>JUST SAY YES TO YOURSELF.” ~ Denise Lambie, Dip. HM, DTG Global Trainer – Australia

Discover the Gift training with Shajen, was an incredible experience for me. It has activated a transformation in me, which leads me more and more to a higher level. In those three days, had many “AHA” moments, which has made me, more conscious to myself. I can say that the training is the way to our gift. Discover the Gift has brought an absolute, WOW effect in my life!!! I am very grateful for Shajen!!!” ~ Bartha Bela – Germany, DTG Global Trainer

“I am feeling incredible after my Discover the Gift training / retreat weekend. I am honored and humbled to have been in the presence of you all. I witnessed breakthroughs great and small, I felt parts of me I have not allowed myself to feel in a very long time. Thank you for creating the space for being true to yourselves and allowing me to express myself. I am missing you all and knowing that all I must do is look at my quartz, take a sip of water and we are unified. We became a tribe, where one did not exist prior- I will go forward on in my day and EMBRACE THIS GRAND CONNECTION - I'M ACTIVATING BABY! DTG-5 Good Morning! — Feeling blessed” ~ Staci Baker, USA
