Up to 10 individual coaching sessions with a professional leadership coach are included in the fee. Coaching sessions are held via Zoom, and scheduled at a mutually agreeable time between student and coach. Coaching helps prepare students for effective team and project leadership in HIT.

Class Etiquette & Technology Requirements:
This class is held in a live, interactive online format using Zoom.

However, we understand that from time-to-time students may need to step away or turn off their video camera to attend to personal or family needs.
