Community Plus Benefits

Office Hours

Every month, you’ll be able to join a live conversation with Dr. Richard MacKinnon. Imagine knocking on his office door and being able to ask him questions about your own development journey? Office Hours gives you all the benefits of access to an experienced Coaching Psychologist, but from the comfort of your own location. And if your timezone means attending live is a challenge, you can catch-up by watching the recording later. 

Bite-sized Learning

Every quarter, we’ll run one of our established ‘Bite-sized Learning‘ workshops. Covering skills and insights that span productivity, wellbeing and interpersonal effectiveness, these ninety-minute online sessions are the perfect length to move your learning forward. Slides for each workshop are shared afterwards, along with a recording of the session so you can revisit anything you missed. Most importantly, Community Plus members decide which session will run each quarter.

Expert Masterclasses

Each quarter, an invited guest will facilitate an online masterclass. We want to give Community Plus members access to a wide variety of topics and expertise, and our confirmed guest list includes published authors, coaches, psychologists and leadership experts. See below for the confirmed calendar of events. Each masterclass will be recorded for viewing later and we’ll have a selection of digital resources to share afterwards from each of our guests. 

A Development Plan

In addition to access to experts, structure learning and ad hoc office hours conversations, we’ll have regular sessions dedicated to clarifying, planning and executing your personal development plan. We’ll help you clarify your values, turn aspirations into well-crafted goals and intentions into practical action. Each quarter, we’ll also provide accountability and check in on your progress towards what matters to you. We’ll give you everything you need to make the changes and achieve the goals you’ve been dreaming of.
