Berkeley People Management: Executive Coaching Program

What is this?

Berkeley People Management: Executive Coaching is a cohort-based leadership development experience for eligible managers, made possible through Berkeley People & Culture's relationship with Korn Ferry (a global leader in leadership development) and BetterUp (a global leader in developmental coaching).

  • Select and meet (virtually) with a personal executive coach from our partners at BetterUp for six (6) months

Is there a fee for this program?

While the majority of the program costs are covered by Berkeley People & Culture, to participate you must secure $1,000 sponsorship from your department paid to Berkeley People & Culture by chartstring transfer.

A note of transparency around pricing: The $1,000 sponsorship helps offset the cost of the coaching program and 360 assessment instrument. Berkeley People & Culture is covering ~85% of the total program cost.
