A crew is a small group of professional peers who come together to explore professional topics. They inspire each other to think differently, motivate each other to go further, and hold each other accountable for their professional goals. Some people refer to their crew as their personal board of consultants.
Crew guides are certified executive coaches who also have experience working as employees and leaders in corporations. This combination means they have the expertise of coaches and also the real-life know-how of modern professionals.
Each session is designed around a different theme and career design activity. Coaches will guide the crew through the activities, and there will often be some pre-work. Sessions are highly interactive - expect to share your own career explorations with your crew, and get curious asking questions of your crew mates.
Between sessions there will be homework assignments - fun ones. You can expect to spend between one and three hours on each homework assignment.
There are a few tangible outcomes of a Crew program, but really, we think the value is in the intangibles. Here is how our customers describe the value they've found in Crew:
At Crew we’re striving to make coaching more accessible and affordable. So while we think Crew provides more value than regular one-to-one executive coaching (see above), we’re pricing it below standard coaching hourly rates to enable more people to benefit. Each Crew program is priced differently, so check the details of your program. We also offer scholarships for crew’ers who need some financial assistance. We have a 100% money back guarantee. If you don’t think Crew has helped you to design your career, we’ll give you a refund.
Totally! A lot of employers are cluing into the power of coaching and peer networks, and are happy to let employees use their L&D or Wellness budget for Crew. We can help facilitate this conversation, ask us for our employer one-pager!
No worries, we know things come up. Because Crew is so dependent on the group aspect, we do ask that you try your hardest to attend every core group session. If you have to miss a crew session, give your crew as much advance notice as possible, and reach out to your fellow crew’ers to help you get caught up. If you think you'll need to miss multiple sessions, we ask that you defer your program as your absence can have a negative impact on the rest of the crew.
We know people are busy, which is why we’re very intentional with how we use homework. Homework assignments are one way we ensure we make the best use of the time together, plus, we think they’re really useful exercises. We therefore design our sessions with the assumption that everyone has done the homework, so please try your best to complete it in advance. But we also understand that life happens, so if you can’t do the assignment we just ask that you tell your coach in advance so she/he can reallocate time and breakout groups as required.
