Note from the Founder

Leading people is hard

If you don't align your team around the same goals, they aren't as productive. If you don't listen carefully to your team members, they stop sharing innovative ideas. If you don't inspire people with a vision, staff leave for other companies.

Coaching can help

I was fortunate to receive executive coaching early in my career and found it transformative in accelerating my leadership journey. I always wished I could extend this type of support to my full team. But traditional 1-on-1 coaching can be too expensive to provide beyond the very top leadership. Its also too burdensome to source and coordinate relevant coaches for diverse & growing teams.

That's why we built CoffeeChat

Our platform enables teams in emerging markets to offer coaching to more of their leaders by making it more affordable and relevant. I'd love to support you and your team in finding the right coaches to drive your mission forward.
