Survey Results & Program Changes

Survey Results

Thanks for filling out our survey. Here are the conclusions:

1. You appreciate fellowship time with your fellow BTs but don't want extra meetings

2. You want to keep the 1:1s with your coaches, but reduce the frequency

3. You want more choice and personalization in what you are learning through the program


Based on the results we have revamped the program!
