Our program is designed to accommodate people's professional and post-pandemic social lives :) We recommend planning for 2-3 hours a week for program content and sessions.
Weekly Digital Pivot Sprints - Review digital sprint resources, frameworks, and templates at your own pace once a week. Spend roughly ~30 mins doing the exercises before the weekly check in.
Discuss sprints live with your cohort over video - Come together with your cohort and Zeit coach over video to review weekly sprint material, do group exercises, and ask questions. The check-ins will be once a week for 1-hour. They are either Tuesdays or Wednesday between 8pm-9pm EST based on what works best for your cohort. We recommend you attend each check-in but they will be recorded if you cannot attend.

These sessions are 1-hour and held between 7-9pm EST. All sessions are recorded if you cannot attend. Members are free to attend ANY masterclass sessions to learn about various roles.
1:1 coaching session with Pivot experts - You will have daily access to Zeit coaches in the Slack and have the ability to schedule a 1-hour, 1:1 session based on your availability at any point during the program.

Cohorts are like a team! They are a group of people you start the program with. Each cohort is a mix of people pursuing different or the same tracks so that you get to broaden your network. By the end of the program, your cohort feel like family. Like, some of our members are now going for walks and texting kinda friends. Don’t worry, you’ll also get to meet people from prior cohorts once you become a member.
Is everything remote?
Yes! We have weekly digital check-ins with your cohort over Zoom and our community currently lives on Slack so you can collect anytime.
