What is Cohort Alpha?
Cohort Alpha’s mission is to empower talented, hard-working, and ethical people to propel their careers by providing frameworks and connections to thrive.
Our Point of View is the following: what is consistently missing for those who encounter frustration, resistance, and adversity at work is “Power.”
After all, how many people lacking real talent end up climbing faster than expected?
Who are our Members?
Cohort Alpha started in 2018 as a small group for product managers at unicorns based in San Francisco. Originally, we intended to focus on the discipline of product management.
But I found that the real underlying issues weren’t about the processes of product management.
They were about the contextual challenges coming from multiple stakeholders, cross-departmental competition and politics, and the overall pressures from companies artificially compressed their timetables to achieve aggressive scale.
The best Members (the one’s who start in our free and open community but then join the Program) care about their career enough to recognize the structural challenges and the need for attaining different levers of “power.”
- Program: This is the in-depth course that will jumpstart your career with the Alpha Framework.
- Cohort: Both during and after enrolling in the Program you will meet with your peers or Cohort.
