THE THRIVE PROCESS:
Using an integrated approach of training, mentorship, coaching, and industry engagement, participants develop and apply managerial tools, strategies, and acumen necessary to lead within their organizations and the media marketing industry.
Designed using a unique cohort model, Thrive creates a tight-knit, reliable, common-purpose group. Cohorts are a more dynamic, collaborative, and encouraging learning environment which fosters shared learning, innovative thinking, and a profoundly and deeply supportive community for each other.
With a renewed focus on utilizing a leadership framework created by The Ready Zone with Esther Weinberg, Thrive dives into creative skill-building while also providing fundamental building blocks for change readiness.
