The learning pathway coupled with live coaching supervision provided the right balance of learning and development for me. I was unsure how I would find the self-service approach but, having experienced it, I loved the balance of on-demand learning with my supervision sessions. It has been particularly effective during the pandemic restrictions, but I would recommend it at any time.
