Free Coaching Sessions Again!

Earlier this year I offered to coach four women over six months. It's been such an interesting and rewarding experience that I'm doing it again!

I'm particularly interested in coaching women tech managers. This is open to current managers, or individual contributors who are strongly considering a move into management. “Tech” roles can include a variety of positions: developers, designers, project managers, quality engineers, content writers, etc. Please still apply if you’re keen, but don’t particularly align with one of these specific roles. These were just the ones that came to mind!

Bit about coaching

Most people have never had a coaching session, so it’s hard to know what to expect. Coaching allows you to talk through a problem with someone who isn’t also trying to talk through their problem, prove how smart they are, or in charge of your salary. We’ll reflect on a particular problem you’ve brought. I’ll ask more questions than I answer, and you’ll do most of the thinking and talking. Then I’ll help you frame an action plan and some goals for the next session. I’ve also got another post about how to prep and some rough timing for the session.



As before, I really don't want your money - I want to help you and give back to our wonderful community! However, to make this work you need to be as committed as I am. The best way I know to quantify commitment between strangers is with money. So here are the rules for payment:

I've done this kind of payment before and have a track record of not stealing from anyone. The initial payment wouldn't be due until after our “get to know you” session - don’t give money to strangers on the internet!

If $300 is prohibitively expensive for you (student, unemployed, etc) please mention this in your application and we’ll figure something out. Again - I don’t want your money, I want your commitment.


Hard requirements:

Apply here!

I'll contact everyone during the last week of June. I'll schedule a 30 min “get to know you” session to double check that we want to commit to this process together.
