Empowering people to contribute their unique potential

People make their best contributions when they can be themselves. Our coaching helps them communicate authentically so they can stretch their professional wings.

Part 2

Making companies more equitable and inclusive

By boosting employee skills and confidence, we usher new perspectives into the spotlight. This promotes belonging, retention and the cultivation of more diverse leadership.

Our founder's journey

Our origin story

While working on a deal in Mexico as an analyst at GE, Tyler Muse realized his high school Spanish wasn’t going to cut it. He responded to a Craigslist ad for Skype lessons posted by Kathe Solares, a teacher in Guatemala. As Tyler’s friendship with Kathe grew, he found he could confidently express himself to native speakers in Spanish. He wondered why there wasn’t already a one-on-one online language program out there. And in 2012, he founded Lingo Live.

Eight years later, after seeing that Skills-Based Coaching leads to not only language acquisition, but also leadership skills, professional growth, and better company results, he decided to expand our offering to native English speakers.
