“This is the training that I wish I'd received years ago when I first started working on my leadership skills.”
You deserve to be supported in becoming a leader.
I've done a lot of reading around leadership and related skills building, but I still experienced a major, immediate leveling-up. We talk about "aligning values" a lot but I honestly had meager-to-no ideas on what that can look like in practice. Now, I get to the heart of why a team member prefers one solution or approach over another much more quickly.
We understand what it’s like to move into a leadership role with more responsibility and accountability but limited guidance or support. We've been there before.
Co Leadership offers the most effective leadership training for engineers.
We have decades of combined experience working in Silicon Valley and do months of market research for each course we design.
We know how much of a black box people-related skills can seem, and we give structure to the otherwise mystical art of leadership.
We connect the dots from every tool back to your day-to-day — the team meetings, 1-on-1's, retrospectives, and more — to maximize the impact of everything you learn.
Our engineering team invited Jean and Edmond to run a half-day leadership experience at our offsite, and we had a very positive experience. The fact that Jean and Edmond are engineers themselves, helped tremendously keep the conversation real - no fluff, no theoretical gimmicks that sound interesting, but aren't necessarily applicable. We learned pure tooling that can be used by any engineer straight away.
The technical skills that made you a strong individual contributor aren't enough to get you to become an effective leader.
You need the right structures and abstractions for the art of leadership.
Our immersive in-person workshops focus on experiential learning packed with demos and live practice on real-life situations.
We show you how to bring all the tools and frameworks back into your 1:1s, sprints, retrospectives, project kick-offs, and more.
Have the impact and influence that you dream of for your career.
Edmond and Jean put together an amazing workshop. Their presentation format of Explain, Demo, and Practice worked wonders and really proved how powerful their exercises were. In just 15 minutes of one exercise, my co-worker and I cracked through the problem of a non-productive recurring meeting we were having. And just two weeks later we implemented the changes and found resounding success! I highly recommend Edmond and Jean's work especially for leaders from different departments who work together on a daily basis.
“I've repeatedly gone back to the alignment tools we covered in the Building Alignment workshop. The tools covered in the workshop have given me a mental model for navigating the varied interests I've encountered initiating a larger, cross-company billing/payments project. I'm also using what I learned to coach team leads and PMs on techniques for overcoming sprint-to-sprint obstacles that often get in the way of us doing our best work.”
“In just a few weeks, Edmond and Jean transformed fifteen Quip engineers into empowered leaders. After going through the program, the engineers spearheaded initiatives to improve team processes around new hire onboarding, product review, and code deployment. Edmond and Jean helped our engineers build a close community, discover a shared vocabulary for approaching interpersonal challenges, and practice wielding their influence to improve our team’s culture.”
“This course is definitely a must-have for engineers transitioning into a leadership role. I was always focusing on my technical skills for making my impact and didn't think too much about my social and relationship skills. This course made it perfectly clear that those skills can easily be learned. Edmond and Jean packed so much valuable information together and the frameworks they provided made it easier for me to plan, prioritize, and communicate clearly in my day to day responsibilities.”
“Thanks Edmond and Jean for creating such a simultaneously impactful yet accessible workshop! They break difficult conversations into easily understandable steps, which I found really useful. I had the opportunity to try out many simple experiments in workplace communication, learning to better understand other people and build alignment. I was impressed with how accessible the material and the exercises were — I would recommend this to even the most skeptical of managers or tech leads on my teams and I wouldn't be worried about turning them off.”
