Coaching

Build leadership skills one-on-one

 
 

Work one-on-one with an experienced design coach to tap into your creativity as a leader and transform the way you work with your team and cross-functional counterparts.

Learn best practices honed from years of operational experience and get an outsider’s perspective on navigating your team's unique challenges. 

Sessions are designed to work for you over a six month minimum period—whether that’s face to face, over video chat, or a mix.

Team coaching is also available to bring together design leaders being coached individually or in conjunction with learning and development programs.

Finding mentorship in the Product Design space has been incredibly challenging since stepping into a leadership role. Mia’s guidance helped prioritize issues, give focus, and prepare for potential scenarios that could be damaging to team health. She’s incredibly passionate and articulate. I’d recommend working with her to anyone looking for an outside perspective, or that’s stepping into a Design oriented leadership role. She can help you get to where you need to be faster than going it alone.

Mia is wise! I come to her feeling fragmented, overwhelmed and stuck. She has a manner of asking questions, probing deeper and within a matter of minutes I am able to find answer to my problems, feel in control and belief in my abilities as a leader. I’ll always want her as my mentor, guide and coach to navigate this challenging and exhilarating world of tech.
— Apeksha Garga, Director of Design at Wealthfront

Leading a design team can be very challenging. Having someone outside of your organization with great design leadership experience to mentor you is incredibly helpful. Her warm personality, vast experience in the design field and ability to ask the right questions makes Mia the best mentor you can wish for.
