Frequently asked questions
What will I get out of this?
Short & sweet: A grip on your professional growth.
You will have a smart plan for growth, and all the coaching you need, in the right way at the right time: sparring with live coaches, inspiration, suggestions, Q&A’s, nudges and so much more.
Is this for me?
If you are a design professional who wants to grow, this is for you. Our coach helps professionals:
- at all seniority levels (we have coachees from junior to director level)
- from any company size (we have coachees from freelance to bigco’s)
- from any design discipline (literally any)
Examples of our coachees: a Freelance Graphic Designer, a Design Director at a global FMCG brand, a UX designer in a digital agency, or a Service Design Lead in a large corporate.
Am I too senior / junior for this?
If you’re open for coaching or mentoring and you dare to dream, then you’re not too senior or junior.
Do I need this if I'm happy at work?
Our coaching helps you get a grip on your growth, starting tomorrow. This is important, whether you’re happy at work, feeling stuck or when you’ve reached a fork in the road.
Should companies / bosses provide this?
A growing amount of companies pays this for their designers. All data is and will always be owned by the individual coachee, but companies benefit. Their designers have a stronger sense of where they want to go and what they need for that. This allows companies to tailor roles better and increase employee retention. Everybody’s happy!
Can companies / bosses have access to the app?
Our coachees exclusively own their data, so they decide whether they want to share things with others.
That being said, we believe that sharing dreams and growth plans is essential to good professional relationships, and the clear, step-by-step approach of our coaching might inspire people to start doing this.
How does coaching work?
You get coached by the app at your own pace and in your own style. The app pulls in just the kind of coaching you need:
When you need to explore and create things, like during the Kickstart, you get sparring, suggestions, input, and feedback.
At other times you need to persist, so you get inspiration, Q&A’s, nudging and so much more.
How much time will this take me?
All coaching is self-paced, so it’s up to you! But if you want to have a good sense of progress, it’s good to spend no less than 1 hour a month on this. The app will help you streamline this time to the max.
What are recurring topics in your coaching?
We will coach you on whatever it is you need most.
Some topics we will definitely talk about:
- Growth and growing
- personal branding
- design leadership
- career happiness
- curriculum futurum
- and much more.
Can I still be opportunistic when I have a plan?
You’d better be! The app helps you look at your growth in terms of enablers to develop and actions to take. This makes it much easier to have a sharp eye for opportunity.
When it hits: you can easily tweak things and adjust your coaching preferences.
Do you coach face-to-face?
We’re ready to speak at your event, and you can come visit us at any time. But nope, we don’t coach face-to-face: we do online coaching.
Can you get me a promotion or new job?
Your coach does not focus on job switches or promotions per se. It does want to make sure that you grow and that your work helps you turn your vision into reality.
How much does it cost?
Coaching costs €399 once + €15 per month.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept Credit Cards, Paypal and iDeal.
