Wouldn't it be amazing if everyone loved their job?
If they bounced out of bed every morning, eager to get started?
We think it would be, which is why we created Sayge: to transform people's lives by empowering and inspiring them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
Work challenges are myriad and almost everyone has them. Maybe you've just become a manager for the first time, or a new parent who suddenly has much more 'life' in their 'work/life' balance. Perhaps you want to be the leader you know you can become, or get the recognition you know you deserve. Whatever it may be, if you think it could be better, you're probably right.
In our quest to overcome our work challenges, we found coaching to be such a transformative experience that we thought (and still think) that almost everyone would benefit from it. However, we found the whole experience of finding and working with a coach much more difficult than it needed to be. And we wondered why most companies offered coaching only to their executives (if at all).
That's when the idea for Sayge was born. We've set out to demystify and democratize professional development coaching. To make it as easy and – yes – as fun as possible. And to make it available to as many people as we can. All so that we can help more people bounce out of bed every morning, eager to get to work.
Four ways we’re disrupting coaching
At Sayge, we believe that four challenges need to be tackled to accomplish our mission of bringing coaching to the world. Those are:
1. New understanding. Clearly explain what coaching is (and is not) and how it makes a real difference to people’s engagement, happiness and productivity.
2. Bespoke matching. Recognize the unique importance of matching each individual to the right coach for them.
3. Easy accessibility.
Make coaching accessible (and affordable) for the majority, not the minority.
Fit coaching around people’s lives (not the other way around).
This mission drives everything we do, every single day.
