How It Works

3 mONTHS of impact

Each 3-month program is structured around a theme of relevance to design leaders. Our Aug 2024 program is around Managing and Retaining Healthy Design Teams.

3-6 guest speakers (design leaders and coaches at places like Netflix, Coursera, and Logitech) will speak on relevant topics, and mastermind sessions and community prompts will revolve around, but not be limited to, this theme.

We'll have two slots for mastermind sessions:  either 12pm EST / 5pm EST on Aug 14, Aug 28, Sep 11, Sep 27, Oct 9, and Oct 23.

Our Design Community Works at Top Companies Around the World

Frequently Asked Questions

When will this program begin?

Our pilot program will start in August 2024. Mastermind groups of 6-10 will be carefully curated based on location, background / interests, and fit.

How does this compare to executive coaching?

We're designing the DLG program to be on par with the outcomes and impact from 1:1 coaching, with the added advantage of learning from peers who have walked in your shoes before. Participants of mastermind groups report transformative takeaways from the networking opportunities, shared wisdom, and connections that arise from the group setting.

What is the TIME COMMITMENT for this?

Guest speaker sessions will take place every 2-4 weeks, and last 60 minutes (these will also be recorded).

Most importantly, expect to spend at least 90 minutes every 2 weeks in the live mastermind sessions (and maybe more connecting individually with your peers).
