FAQ

Let's answer some questions

Have questions about Forest? We've got all the answers you need.

Who is this program for?

Technical leaders, engineering managers, and senior software engineers who want to scale their impact with team leadership.

This is for anyone who wants to flatten the learning curve of becoming an effective leader of product engineering teams with remote ways of working.

How does it work?

Weekly Zoom calls, video modules, templates and scripts for you to save time and learn from our expensive mistakes.

When does it start?

You can join the program at any time. Our curriculum and coaching calls are geared to the specific challenges you’ll encounter at each step of the process.

If you already have a team — great. But you don’t need to be an engineering manager to apply.

All we require is a strong desire to make a bigger impact on the world with team leadership.

Why does this program exist?

10 years ago, the world responded to the shortage of people who can code with coding bootcamps.

Now, we’re responding to the shortage of leaders for all those new software engineers with a training and coaching program geared specifically to help lead remote software engineering teams.

Who will I be learning from?

Stephen Bates (bio) and Todd Larsen (bio) host zoom calls with personalized coaching from a rotating team of top Silicon Valley tech company coaches.

We believe in people. Whether you are an entrepreneur, business leader or an expert in your field. You're a unique person with unique value - and we love making sure that value is fully used and rewarded. We've worked with hundreds of people who stopped themselves from believing in their own value.

One of Stephen's greatest talents is seeing each person's real value under their internal confusion and conflict. This allows them to create, often for the first time, a truly aligned and exciting vision for their team.

What if I miss a session?

All trainings will be recorded so you have the option of listening at a later time in order to catch up on all the content. Our goal is for this experience to be as flexible as possible around your schedule.

What if I need help right away?

Tech Leaders provides 1 "SOS' call a month. If you need immediate help, you have the option of accessing a coach to partner with you in resolving the task at hand. We will provide you with a link for you to bookmark and use at any time.

Do I get one-on-one coaching?

Yes! The unique experience about Tech Leaders is that part of the coaching allows us to speak directly into your own environment. Our weekly scheduled zoom calls allow us to meet you where you're at.
