Frequently Asked Questions

How will this program be delivered?

This is a 12-week program. Each week, you will receive access to a new training module, and we will meet for a coaching call on a select day and time. In addition, you’ll get assignments to complete during the week, and I’m available for ad-hoc support as and when you need it.

What if participants miss the live calls?

No problem. All calls will be recorded and made available to participants within a few hours after the live calls. 

How much time will this take each week?

Participants should expect to invest about 2 hours each week to complete the module, participate in the weekly 1-hour coaching call, and follow through on assignments for that week.

What is the refund policy?

We do not offer a refund. However, if within the first 14 days the participants is unexpectedly unable to continue the program, we allow the transfer of the seat to someone else or pause the participation until they are ready to engage again.
