Solutions Designed by Successful, Diverse Coaches
Our professional development approach integrates the interpretation of industry-leading personality assessments with our own “think. interact. act.” capability-building framework. We draw upon our experiences as people of color (POC) in the corporate world to provide a safe space for POC to discuss professional challenges with a trusted coach who can help them develop their skills and succeed in the workplace.
Supporting Diverse Talent to Overcome Career Challenges
Systemic bias is a daily challenge people of color often face alone. We understand the unique challenges employees face every day and provide real-time, personalized support rooted in first-hand experience and similar challenges. Driven by our diverse coaching backgrounds, we help break down unconscious barriers and provide a clear understanding of where problems lie to generate real, lasting results.
Most Ethnically Diverse Coaching Network in the Industry
We have had successful careers at companies like McKinsey, Procter & Gamble, BP, General Mills, and more, and hold degrees from prestigious institutions in technical and non-technical areas which has laid a strong, diverse foundation for us as coaches. Most importantly, we have a passion for professional development and a desire to use our expertise to give employees of color what they need to thrive.
Diverse Coaches for All Levels and Development Areas
We offer a number of ways to engage with us for professional coaching.
1-hour group follow-up practice sessions after webinars
Coaching through an IM-based platform
Hogan or MBTI assessments
Coaching for resource groups, new hire classes, etc.
[My coach] served as a great mentor when I started a new position in management. His experience working with high-level management teams, coupled with his calm demeanor and open-book personality, gave me a trusted resource to go to with any & all questions. Working with [my coach] set me up for long-term success in my management role, which I still reap the benefits of, even today.
“[My coach] provides firm feedback in a caring and objective way. He is great at pushing me just enough beyond my comfort zone to continually encourage me to experiment and grow. After a week, I was starting to notice material changes. I am surprised at the amazing personal progress I’ve made in the short amount of time that I’ve worked with him.”
“[My coach] was really great at helping me sort out my goals and getting me focused on what I want to do and where I want to go. I found I was able to make some significant changes very quickly… Thanks a million.”
