Your career isn’t Amazon Prime; it doesn’t show up in two days. Significant career development is an ongoing process. The time to see results will vary based on your individual goals and where you are in your career. Most of our members see the full benefit of coaching after 8-10 coaching sessions.
Today, coaching is defined as a tool that is used to transport people from where they are to where they want to be—so you can achieve your goals faster with guidance, accountability, and support. Coaching can help you find the clarity you need to answer tough questions like, “What do I want to achieve?”, “What skills do I need to develop?” and “What is my motivation?” Prosper coaches are trained to empower you to make informed decisions about your career plan and trajectory, as well as help you develop the professional skills you need for success such as confidence, communication, and leadership skills.
Prosper gives you instant access to experienced, on-demand coaches, interactive audio, and video exercises—all easily accessible through our mobile app. Get career guidance, develop soft-skills through coaching, content, and community. Build a career that makes you excited for Mondays!
At Prosper, we believe that everyone should have access to the tools they need to be better at work, reduce anxiety and stress, overcome roadblocks and feel more empowered to go after the career they deserve. Whether it’s minutes before an important 1:1, or you're about to pitch to a table of investors; Prosper coaches are here to help you through high-pressure situations and come out the other side stronger.
Once you're matched with your coach, the next step is to meet with them for a 30-minute coaching session, via video call. All you’ll need is your mobile device and an internet connection. You can expect a focused, guided conversation around your career goals and leave every session with a personalized action plan to help you get ahead. In between sessions, your coach will challenge you to build the key professional skills, habits, and the mindset you need to see tangible results.
Like a coach, a mentor plays an important part of your support system. A mentor brings their past experience and expertise to the conversation, sharing personal opinions and advising you. It’s typically informal and happens over coffee. Unlike a mentor, a coach is a formal relationship that is unbiased and objective. They do not need to have industry expertise to guide you. They will ask you powerful questions to help you develop the insights, focus, and mindset you need to achieve your goal.
Yes. A coaching relationship is personal for everyone. Once you’ve met your match, you’ll be able to work with the same coach in future sessions. If you don’t feel there’s a fit with your coach, please email email@example.com or chat with us on our website, or in your Prosper app (head over to your profile and select ‘Chat with us’).
We offer a complimentary 15-min intro session, geared to help you find the right fit. Reflect after your first meeting, how do you feel? A good sign is if you feel excited and inspired, but you also may be feeling a bit scared of the unknown. That’s completely normal; it just means you’re ready to progress and take on a new challenge by stepping out of your comfort zone.
We cannot guarantee your coach will be an expert in your particular field, as our coaches are, however, we will match you based on your career goals which you enter in the app. Our coaches are people who are invested in your success and stem from various backgrounds and industries such as finance, law, tech, business and more. If you feel that a different coach would be better suited for you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or chat with us on our website, or in your Prosper app (head over to your profile and select ‘Chat with us’).
Prosper coaches complete a three-week training program developed and delivered by ICF certified coaches and career development professionals before meeting Prosper members. In addition, our coaches are either certified by a recognized coaching body or are on their way to achieving this certification, with significant experience already under their belt. Prosper invests in its coaches through on-going training, coaching supervision and support to give our members the best possible coaching experience. We encourage Prosper members to give us feedback on their experience to help us maintain the highest standards for coaching performance.
