Simple ROI

Cut Costs, Improve Outcomes

At a fraction of the cost and with a single program, peer coaching produces results where legacy learning, wellbeing, and inclusion programs fall short.


Only 12% of learners say they apply the skills from the training they receive to their job. (24x7 Learning)


Employee surveys point to problems, not solutions, and they don’t empower employees to own their own success.


Mentoring can be effective for learning and inclusion, but the quality is very uneven, and it doesn't scale because the supply of good mentors never matches the demand.

Traditional Coaching

Coaching has proven to create sustained behavior change, self-awareness, and leadership capacity, but is too expensive for 90%+ of employees. (Korn Ferry) And, professional coaches are a short-term and one-way relationship with an outsider who doesn’t know your culture.
