Someone who is a part of Cohort Alpha invited you. You will learn more about Cohort Alpha shortly.
But, first, why were you invited?
You Work for a Rocket
Working for a fast-growing company in tech is one of our primary criteria that signals a high-potential career.
You’re a Cross-Team’er
Certain roles have to work across teams. Instead of operating a silo, single-player mode, you likely work across teams.
You Have Untapped Potential
Having worked with and been advised by those who have had a rocket ship career, we have educated insight / guesses into those not yet fully leveraging their potential.
You Have Strong Education
You have training, education, or work experience with credible and prestigious pedigree.
Get promoted quickly and effortlessly despite being in a highly competitive environment.
Create demand and get rewarded with compensation that makes you appreciated and valued.
Engage in Healthy Ways
Instead of getting burned out, meet the growing demands with full engagement and without unnecessary stress.
Instead of feeling drained and dread, tap into your strengths and values to create work that matters.
Your Scaling Tech Company is a Rapidly Mutating Beast
The rise of a new and different class of business has created a new set of office and workplace stresses and challenges.
Companies are growing faster than before.
Valuations and multiples are soaring.
New business models and new high-velocity entrants are disrupting traditional industries with explosive power.
As a result, the company you work for is different from what it once was six-months ago. And your current company will be different six-months from now!
If you don’t have a framework to uncover these changing currents running beneath the surface, you can get swept away to sea.
Even just one month of unemployment, loss of stock options, or missed promotion can cost you tens of thousands of dollars.
Stress, loss of control, even disengagement directly impacts your health, quality of sleep, and longevity.
Every day spent in a bad working environment is a wasted day of distraction from your life.
Bad situations can kill your spirit, break your self-image, and burden you will baggage and self-doubt.
Members of Cohort Alpha meet in live, confidential Sessions that have short, research-based content that frames real-world workplace issues.
Additional income from earlier promotion per month: $10k
Accelerating your promotion directly impacts your bottom line. Companies typically promote on a regular cycle (and often start-ups don’t have even that!), but equipping yourself to be on the right cadence takes doing and saying the right things. This might be one of the hardest things you need to position and advocate on your behalf.
What’s your estimate of how much sooner you could ask for the promotion you have earned?
Value of reducing stress working at the office per month: $5k
You may continue to stay at your company, but proactively mitigating interpersonal or systemic stress has its own value.
Perhaps you’re not feeling alone in how to handle a difficult situation. Or you avoid getting into a political situation where you’re always watching over your shoulder or feeling credit taken from you. Unnecessary stress can steal your joy and add to your workload (its like having a second job managing relationships or expectations that have gone bad!)
Value of reducing likelihood of being pushed out or laid off: $20k
If you haven’t experienced a “bad situation” at work, whether from interpersonal relationships or economic realities (or both!), you could experience an unexpected state of unemployment. While the economy may be strong now, building the skills, network, and relationships to increase your ”indispensability” at work can protect you.
One way to put an estimate for this is the amount of lost income times the duration of being out of work (be conservative, the hiring boom can only last for so long!)
