Influencing Without Power

You've got excellent ideas, but being early in your career can make it harder to be influential without real "power" to get people to listen to you.

We'll teach you to sell your skills without being "salesy", and influence your boss and team mates to listen to your valuable ideas.

Fast Debugging and Automated Testing

Automated testing can be one of the hardest things to learn when you're early in your career.

You'll learn how to use expectations to "manage up" to your boss to make your work life drastically easier.

We'll show you how to see The Big Picture of what you're working on and how it fits into the "why's" of managers, stakeholders, and investors, so you can add value where it's needed most.

Thinking Time Verses Coding Time

As coders, we're considered Thought Workers, but most developers don't spend enough Think Time up front before diving into writing code.

We'll show you how to structure your Think Time so you can produce the best technical solutions possible to stand out on your team.

System Design

Designing an elegant solution is a hallmark trait of any senior software engineer.

We'll show you how popular systems are designed so you can hold your own in a system design discussion.

Networking Skills To Boost Your Career

What do you want the job marketplace to know about you and your unique strengths?

We'll show you how to get your message in front of the right people at the right time, so you can build your reputation, stand out from the competition and get the best roles.

Stephen and Todd are passionate about solving a variety problems in the tech space and are invested in their members growth.

As a manager, I can now lead my team much more efficiently and have used the valuable resources taught to me to not only get the best out of my team but help them grow too.

I appreciated the clarification between the two concepts/definitions of leadership and managing.

Using real world examples and identifying which part of the situation was leadership vs management was very helpful in the distinction between the two.

D.B. (US)

"

I was ready to take my career to the next level. Having a weekly mastermind mentoring calls combined with watching the training videos, I’ve really noticed a change in my behavior and thinking.

I’ve been more strategic with my thinking.

J.L. (US)

"

I had a beautiful moment yesterday arriving at a far better technical solution after stepping back and starting with the “why” followed by the “what” to reveal a much better “how”.  

This solved a long-running sticking point with a key partner integration that was  stuck in limbo for weeks at the hands of this implementation detail.

Less than a week in and already reaping tangible rewards.
