Classes teach you information and known practices and skills
Coaching helps you identify and break down barriers to achieve your goals
Conferences inspire you with stories and methods
Workshops guide you through the application of a process or best practice.
Networking events connect you with peers and connections (often combined with a talk or conference or other source of inspiration)
These are all useful when growing your career. But, only coaching is focused on where you are in your journey and has some guaranteed relevance to your challenges.
A Mastermind is a blend of these. We bring together people facing similar challenges and focus on learning, sharing, and breaking down barriers.

You don’t have the support of your organization
You could not justify the expense and time
You aren't leading (or about to lead) a design group (UX, Research, Design Thinking, etc) or organization
