How does coaching work?

Accessing a coach's time is easy and simple. 

You select which coach you'd like to work with and book one session at a time directly with them. 

You'll be sent some pre-work to do before your session — this pre-work will be customised to you if it is not your first session.

Each session runs for 90-minutes via video-call where you can ask questions, as well as listen to the advice and recommendations of your coach. 

After your video coaching session, your coach will collate and deliver their advice, reading lists and resources for you.
