Frequently Asked Questions

What is Medley?

Medley is the only group coaching platform and community equipping emerging leaders to be more authentic, dynamic, and inclusive – helping them to grow into their best selves at work and in life. We believe small groups are incredibly powerful, and broadening access to high-quality small group learning experiences will increase self-awareness, perspective, and connection in the world. We offer an annual membership designed to drive your growth and create space for you to learn, practice, and connect to what matters most to you. Medley was founded by a mother-daughter team, and you can read more about our story here.

What is Medley membership?

Medley memberships are 12 months long. Throughout this time, members will take part in four months of group coaching sessions, engage in community-wide programming, have access to exclusive tools and resources to promote growth, and have the opportunity to build their community and network.

What does membership include?

Your Medley group is matched based on your area of focus - and meets 8 times over the course of four months. In your matching questionnaire, we learn more about your goals, what you’d like to focus on, and where you are in your journey. For example, you’re invited to rank how much you relate to to the following statements:

  • Balance: I’m feeling fine but I’m on the verge of burnout. I want to create a more integrated and sustainable life for myself.

  • Fuel: I’m on the path that I want to be on and I’m looking for fuel to help me thrive.

  • Career Transition: I’m brave and ready to shift professional gears. I want to explore and own the narrative around my next role.

  • Leadership: I’m an inspirational leader who’s also looking for some inspiration. I want to further develop my skill set to support others being the best version of themselves.

  • Creator: I am a founder, artist, or entrepreneur with big dreams. I want to sharpen my own vision, explore the big questions, and take action towards my purpose.

Who is Medley for?

Medley is designed with the emerging leader in mind – for those who are eager to commit to their growth and development over a sustained period of time and journey with others. Rather than focusing on specific demographics, locations, industries, or professional titles, we focus on goals and intention. If you want to join Medley, and want to commit, we can (almost always) find a group for you.

P.S. Sometimes people think that we’re just for women - we’re not. We welcome individuals of all genders as Medley members.

When can I apply? How often do you review applications?

We currently review applications on a quarterly basis – sign up on our waitlist now and you'll hear from us as soon as introductory calls and applications are open.

When will my group sessions start?

Your group sessions will most likely start the month after you apply to become a Member. For example, if you apply in February, you will most likely begin group coaching in March.

How often do groups meet?

Groups meet a total of eight times over the first four months of your membership. Sessions are bi-monthly, 90 minutes long, and hosted on Zoom.

What happens in a Medley group session?

In each session, through a variety of exercises and conversation formats, you’ll be challenged around a topic or theme that the group has decided to focus on. Through sharing with and listening to others, you’ll come away from each session with frameworks and tools that enable transformation in the areas that matter most to you. At the end of each session you will reflect on your insights and define concrete actions to take before the next session.

Outside of group coaching, what else can I expect with my membership?

In addition to your bi-monthly coaching sessions with your Medley Group, you'll have exclusive access to ongoing events and workshops for you to continue to learn, practice, and connect with other emerging leaders.  As with group coaching, our programming prioritizes depth and presence. When planning our programming, we look at creating experiences that fall under these three pillars:

  • Learn: Experiences that lead to concrete skills and actions to lay a solid foundation.

  • Practice: Experiences that help you dive deeper and build muscle to better understand yourself and the world around you.

  • Connect: Experiences designed to help you network, engage, and connect with even more open and growth-minded individuals.

How much is a Medley membership?

Medley memberships are an annual commitment. You can choose to pay a one-time membership fee of $1595, or up to 4 installments throughout the first 4 months of membership.

If you would love to join, but the cost is a barrier, we offer an opportunity-based sliding scale. Please email membership@withmedley.com for more information. We would not want cost to be the reason you don’t join.

Also, some members have had their employers sponsor their membership. If you would like support with making this request to your employer, please email partners@withmedley.com for more information.

What happens if I can’t make all my group sessions?

When joining Medley, we ask that all members commit to attending all eight of their group sessions. We understand that life happens, which is why we allow one missed session with good reason. It is so important to our Medley experience that our members are fully committed to their groups. When a session is missed, it affects the group as a whole. Before being matched with your group, please think carefully about your schedule and if you are able to commit to this expectation.

To protect the development of the group, if you miss two sessions, we’ll kindly ask you to step away from your group. You’ll still have access to all of Medley’s programming, any resources provided, and the larger community. In line with our terms of service, you’ll continue to be charged the full membership fee, and will not receive a refund.

What if the timing for my group session no longer works?

Please let your coach know as soon as possible if you’re having issues with the timing of your group sessions. Ensuring that Medley members have a positive, valuable experience is our top priority — we’ll do our best to find a solution that works for you. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to members@withmedley.com — we’re here to do everything we can to help you have an intentional Medley experience.

What if I want to cancel my Medley membership?

By joining Medley, you are signing up for a one year membership. Based on your application responses, we match you with a specific group with the intention that you will meet with the same group or peers and a coach for the duration of the program. Please note, if you request to cancel your membership, you will still be charged for the remainder of your annual membership period. By confirming your information, and entering your payment information, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to these terms as outlined in our terms of service.
