Prepped and Primed 6

6 1-on-1 Coaching Sessions
Fully tailored and customized
100+ video course included
USD 2,214 USD 1,882

This package includes six , fully customizable 1 hour coaching sessions. Included for free with the coaching is a 100+ video course I have designed to provide you with offline training, learning, and deep-dive exercises - this course represents free coaching sessions and allows us to focus our live time on what can best help you.

*Ultimately everything I do is tailored to you as the individual. We work on what you need. This coaching package can be changed/modified to suit your needs - as an example, if you don't need resume/networking help, we can repurpose that time for frameworking / case leadership)

This package is designed to prime you for success in casing in the least amount of time possible. It is not about memorizing everything or being cased in x specific industry/case type. It is about me fundamentally changing your mindset to be prepared for anything that comes your way in the interview.

I fundamentally believe that we don’t go to school to learn x topic. Rather, we learn how to learn. Same with this package: I won’t teach you x case type, however I will teach you how to approach any unknown case type successfully.

But, don't just believe me when I say I provide a step change in your ability to change your thinking and get an offer. 

Hear from my candidates!

Here is what my candidates say:

COACHING

"Ian should create his own qualitative metric around the value he delivers per minute. This is the third coaching session I've had with him, and he consistently makes the time so worthwhile!!! I'm always a little nervous to work on frameworks, though at this time is the most important thing for me, because I'm one of those that wants to do things that they do well in, which I'm not with frameworks haha. It's so fundamental and necessary!
Jacqueline, the reason you're working with Ian isn't so that you can do easy things! Duh! So far, every coaching session has been revelatory for me. I leave every session so excited to make more progress!"
 

Here is what my candidates say:

COACHING

"After Ian's coaching package, I got offers from both companies I interviewed with—BCG and Kearney. Ian was an excellent coach. He approached both case and fit taking into account my personal needs and preferences.


Ian doesn't just give a laundry list of feedback - he helps you improve. For example, when I had trouble with a case structure, Ian paused the case and gave me a few other questions to structure, thereby isolating the structuring skill - this helped me figure out what the actual problem was and fix it."

Here is what my candidates say:

FRAMEWORKING & OFFLINE MATERIALS

“From the Imbellus material to your prompts and everything…they helped me massively and I got phenomenal feedback across all 5 interviews on my structuring. I owe all that to you.”

Here is what my candidates say:

CV / RESUME / COVER LETTER

"I hate cover letters! But Ian is so encouraging, so I complied. He provides very sound feedback that gives you the best end product you think you couldn't produce! Ian really pushes you to deliver your best, without being an ounce of pushy. I don't know how he does that - but what a talent!


Ian overall has made the process of getting my $%&* together fun and highly efficient! Will definitely come back for more!"

An example of what our coaching might look like (emphasis on example!):

Preparation plan

In this session, I work with you to identify your key weaknesses and areas for improvement. Not only will we then create a preparation plan for you, but I will also provide you with all the materials required to resolve these issues.

Mindset shift

I’ll hone in the major areas blocking your success. I’ll have identified these in our first session and we’ll work to fundamentally change your mindset.

Final touches

In this final session, we do some combination, based on your needs.

What does my coaching look like?

Ultimately, no two coaching sessions look the same. I have a toolkit build over years of teaching and training. I use different tools in different ways based on you: your situation, your strengths & weaknesses, and your learning style.

That said, here is an example of what our coaching might look like (emphasis on example!):

EXAMPLE Session 1 - Preparation plan

In this session, I work with you to identify your key weaknesses and areas for improvement. Not only will we then create a preparation plan for you, but I will also provide you with all the materials required to resolve these issues. *See below for the materials I provide*

If you are further along in your preparation, this session might include:

  • Casing resources (incl. case layout template, “world of frameworks” visualisation, industry deep-dive template w/ answers)
  • Initial case to gauge strengths/weaknesses, alongside concrete recommendations for focus areas
  • Instructional videos primarily focused around building up your structuring and frameworking abilities
  • Crash course on frameworking/struturing

If you have just started your consulting journey, this session might include:

  • Start-stop case (working through a case together so that you can get jump-started in your casing comfort level)
  • Deep-dive resume review (incl. killer template)
  • Deep-dive cover letter review (incl. example Cover Letters)
  • Networking/recruiting plan (incl. recruiting tracker)
  • Casing resources (incl. case layout template, “world of frameworks” visualisation, industry deep-dive template w/ answers, case tracker/matrix)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EXAMPLE Session 2: Mindset shift

In this session I’ll hone in the major areas blocking your success. I’ll have identified these in our first session and we’ll work to fundamentally change your mindset. I have almost never seen a candidate that did not need a mindset shift in at least one area. This will be a very focused session, where I use tried-and-tested methods to fundamentally shift your mindset!

Some of the most common areas include:

  • Driving/understanding the case with purpose (hypothesis-driven only scratches the surface here)
  • Fundamentally understanding how companies work
  • Structured + clear thinking and communication
  • Keeping context while in the weeds
  • Brainstorming / flexibility with the unknown
  • Being a real person – showing your personality
  • Logical, project-based thinking of any problem, no matter how big or how small

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EXAMPLE Session 3 – Final touches 

In this final session, we do some combination of the following, based on your needs

  1. Revisit mindset shift exercises
  2. Tough case – I throw everything at you, and provide detailed feedback
  3. Behavioural discussion (how to craft your stories and key principles)
  4. Deep-dive on framework or industry of your choosing

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By the end of these sessions, you will have the fundamentals required to ace the case. You will have gotten rid of rejection-worthy bad habits and you will have the vision and focus required to ultimately achieve interview success.
