Empower your team to innovate and lead

Give your team members the tools to develop the communication skills to share their ideas and take on leadership positions with confidence.

Our iterative learning process

Our coaches follow a tried and tested process to fine-tune a skill. Then they rinse and repeat with a new one.

Step 1

Identify a Challenge

Coach and learner work together to pick a communication challenge the learner struggles with. Then they find a skill to work on that will help the learner overcome that challenge.

Step 2

Pinpoint a Goal

Together, they determine the specific goal the learner would like to accomplish to address their workplace challenge and improve their chosen skill.

Step 3

Set a Task

They finalize a learning plan and choose a real-world task to focus on that will help the learner achieve their goal and improve their chosen skill.

Step 4

Practice at Work

They work together to situate the skill at hand in the workplace so the learner can start seeing impact where it matters most.

Step 5

Get Feedback

In each lesson, they reflect on the learner’s progress and make adjustments to keep the learning process targeted on the learner's workplace goal.

How we do it

Our approach and methodology

We believe deeply in relevant, task-based learning that resonates in the workplace and the real-world. We believe that one-on-one, coach-learner relationships are the best way to gain the communication and leadership skills your team needs. Here's how we do it:

Coach-learner matching

We match learners with experts in the skills they want to sharpen

We pair your team members with coaches who are subject matter experts in the areas they want to focus on. Then, we check in to make sure they’ve found the right fit. If not, we switch them to a new coach.

The relationship advantage

We work one-on-one because it's a more effective way to learn

The coach-learner relationship keeps learners motivated and helps them learn faster. It also allows coaches to cultivate authentic voice. Our program has 6 times better retention than software-only programs.*

*Language learning effectiveness study

Impact-based learning

Real-world practice gets better results faster— and they last longer

Coaches ask learners to practice at work—by explaining technical problems cross-functionally, or tactfully interjecting in meetings, for example. Because they learn to see the real world as part of their classroom, their learning continues long after their lessons end.

A customized solution

We help you find the best fit for your team and your goals

We work with you to determine how many people on your team would benefit from lessons, and the optimal structure to allow each of them—and your company—to get the best value out of our program. Want to learn more? Let’s talk.

Tools for your team

Your team members can find their assessment scores, learning objectives, and tasks all in one convenient place—their Learner Dashboard.

Tools for you

Deploy in minutes

We make it easy for you to invite your team to sign up—through a simple link or our secure Learner Enrollment feature. You can reallocate unused lessons to new learners at any time.
