We’ve learned a lot in three years about what professionals in fashion need and how they should be nurtured and supported to reach their goals in a tough and competitive industry. Here are the four principles we devise the accelerators by:
Watching videos passively doesn't drive behavior change. We believe in putting learning into practice and helping you do the real tasks you need to do to move forward.
We all learn differently. Have our own ambitions. Face different blockers. This is why our approach emphasises goal setting, regular feedback from industry, mentoring and a digital journal to track your personal progress.
Having the best technical skills and ideas won't guarantee success. Success flows from having the right mentality to collaborate, communicate and overcome challenges. Personal coaching is a key part of our methodology.
We borrow from agile software development, experience design, sports psychology, coaching models and anything else that can help us enable transformational behaviour change amongst talented professionals.
