1:1 Bootcamps

The 1:1 bootcamps are an opportunity for your people to dive deep on one particular skill with an (em) Collective coach. Each bootcamp draws from the latest management and leadership science, negotiation theory, behavioral science, and psychology and provides tactical training on topics from interpersonal influence, the first building blocks of leadership and management, to leading and managing as an "only".

The bootcamp kicks off with an orientation session over video conference to set goals and norms for the bootcamp. Your people will then meet with their coach 1:1, two times a month virtually (via video conference) for 90 minutes, for 3 months.

Each session consists of structured exercises, facilitated exploration of issues and open space to work through relevant areas for growth.

How does it work?


We do an intensive orientation session with each person that is signed up for a 1:1 bootcamp, to set the goals with the coach and set the groundwork for the bootcamp. This sets each team member up to get the most out of the bootcamp, including communication norms and onboarding into The (em) Collective.

Meet Virtually

Each person will then meet with their coach 1:1 two times a month for 90 minutes virtually (via video conference) and work through the bootcamp material. They will receive tailored guidance on how to implement the new skills into their work, leadership and life. The bootcamp will involve readings, exercises and guided experimentation with the new skills.

Learning different styles of negotiation and how to adopt different strategies in different situations was so useful. Since we have sister teams that work very closely with us on overlapping domains, what I learned will be extremely helpful in my day-to-day job. The workshop exercises are very engaging and really simulate the real-world scenarios where we have to mine useful information among a myriad of data sources for gaining leverage.

Excellent at preparing individuals to navigate ever-changing project dynamics and professional trajectories.

Attorney at a Large Law Firm

Megan is concerned with her training attendees having tangible outcomes and works hard to keep attendees engaged and confident. I can’t thank her enough for showing me that I already have more power than I realized in negotiation.

Executive in the Entertainment Industry

[The (em) Collective] showed me a model of how to be very practical and positively self-advocating without coming off as ruthless or selfish. This is something I have seen many examples of with men, but rarely any culturally accepted female role models.

Senior Software Engineer at Tech Company

It was a great workshop! The simulations are fun, well organized, and challenging, and the debriefs were enlightening. The best part of the course, though, is Megan, who is just an amazing facilitator. She is a great teacher, she’s incredibly knowledgeable, and she’s really nice. Complete package.
