We are excited to announce applications are open for the Fall 2022 Season of the Coaching Corner! Our most recent Spring Season was our biggest one ever where we created over 150+ CS mentorship pairings with professionals from leading companies like Slack, LinkedIn, Shopify, Attentive, Braze, and more.
Everyone had an amazing experience (just check out the screenshots below), and we are excited to make our upcoming FW22 cohort even better.
If you are looking for CS Mentorship, apply to be a Player.
If you are interested in Coaching CS professionals, apply to be a Coach.
Applications close August 31st.
What is the Coaching Corner?
The Coaching Corner is a bi-annual program that pairs CS Leaders (Coaches) with CS operators (Players) for 1:1 mentorship.
Each cohort runs for 3 months in the Spring/Summer (Feb-May) and in the Fall/Winter (Sep-Nov/Dec). During that time, each pair meets 1:1 for one hour, once a month.
In addition to these 1:1 sessions, Coaching Corner participants get access to exclusive events, workshops, networking, content, and our customer success job board.
How does it work?
The Fall 2022 Season of the Coaching Corner will run from mid-September through mid-December.
Coaches and Players fill out respective application forms. They help us learn more about you and your professional goals so we can know if this program would be a good fit, and to find the best pairing for you. You must apply by August 31st.
We’ll let you know about your application status by September 6th. If you’re accepted you must confirm your participation.
If accepted, you’ll receive:
- Information from Catalyst to give you access to our coaching community, mentorship resources, and event schedule.
- An email-based intro to your Coach/Player the week of September 19th. Players should follow up and schedule their first session and establish a meeting cadence.
During the program, you’ll receive updates, resources, and surprises from Catalyst to help you make the most of your mentorship journey.
Note: We do not charge or pay Coaches or Players for participating.
