Each coaching-based ELX module focuses on a specific, career-building skill and is structured around one-on-one coaching. You can break up your coaching hours and schedule them as you wish with your coach. Sometimes you may want to meet in person. At other times, you can connect over the phone or online. Together, you will work through a project – with the emphasis on learning by doing. Once you’ve mastered the technical process, you can adapt it, scaling it up or down, to any similar situation.
There are no pre-requisites and competency-based module activities will be tailored to your experience. Please note that while coaching is one-one-one, some modules will allow for the opportunity to collaborate and connect with peers through group setting activities.
