What's a Medley Group?
A Medley Group includes you, 7 peers, and a coach, and is tailored to promote a cohesive and insightful experience. Your group will meet monthly for 90 minutes sessions (via Zoom) throughout the year. You are matched with a group based on your application responses.
Where do sessions take place?
Currently, Medley Group sessions take place virtually via Zoom. In each session, you’ll actively engage with others -- sharing, listening and reflecting with the guidance and facilitation of a coach.
What happens in a 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 define concrete actions to take before the next session.
Who are the coaches?
Medley coaches are certified, have extensive experience in life and/or executive coaching, and have worked with both individuals and groups. While they come from a range of backgrounds, each coach is excited about promoting positivity at the intersection of personal and professional development and loves facilitating conversations that lead members to personal insight.
Who are the other people in each Group?
In addition to your coach, you’re matched with 7 others with similar intentions for their Medley experience. While Medley members have a variety of different backgrounds and perspectives, they’re all deeply curious, growth-minded and committed to learning.
Why do I need to fill out an application? How are Medley Groups created?
The Medley application gives you an opportunity to do some self-reflection while also helping us learn more about your background and goals. Your answers help us tailor your Medley experience. First, by creating a group that harnesses each person’s unique set of experiences and perspectives to promote personal and group-level insight and then by identifying a coach who best meets the group’s needs.
If you aren’t initially matched to a group, don’t worry, we’ll add you to our waitlist and notify you when additional groups are formed.
How much is a Medley membership?
Founding Medley membership is $150 paid monthly or $1,500 upfront. Medley is an annual commitment. This founding membership pricing is only available for members who complete an application to join in July.
If you would love to join, but the cost is a barrier, we offer an opportunity-based sliding scale. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org

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

What types of events do I have access to as a Medley Member?
In addition to meeting monthly with your Medley Group, you'll have access to a few different types of events each month. Events range from interactive workshops to help build new skills (e.g. How to set healthy boundaries), fireside chats with thought leaders on important topics (e.g. Race or Modern Masculinity), and classes to simply learn something new (e.g. origami or improv). We’ll also have member-led events that will be driven by the community (e.g. book clubs, discussion groups, game nights etc).
