What students are saying

EVP at Capital One (Ameesh Paleja) on what he learned from Ethan

Ameesh was also ex-Google VP, ex-OfferUp CTO, Atom Tickets CoFounder & CEO, ex-Amazon Director

What Ethan's former reports say

        My ability to deal with different types of personalities, navigate EQ problems, and leadership situations is largely predicated on Ethan's coaching. Ethan is clearly a bar raiser on teaching people how to think about problems and how to communicate problem-solving.
Ameesh Paleja

Ameesh Paleja

EVP at Capital One (ex-Google VP, ex-OfferUp CTO, Atom Tickets CoFounder & CEO, ex-Amazon Director)
        I often refer to the lessons Ethan taught me (or that I learned through Ethan's example) while we worked together at Amazon. Seems like not a week goes by where I don't think about times where we were wrestling with launches, or where Ethan was wearing his barrister's wig in talent reviews. Thanks for investing in me.

"The value I got is 20x its cost." — Student testimonials

        Ethan unveils what every senior manager wants to know about what happens behind the scenes of an executive promotion, and how to position yourself as the best choice. Extremely insightful, transparent, honest, and resourceful. The value I got out of this program is 20x its cost.

Sandy Wong

Sandy Wong

        Getting promoted into senior leadership at a big tech company is as much art, as science. Ethan offers practical and pragmatic advice, delivered with empathy while expecting accountability. His coaching on how to successfully escalate an issue to executive leadership by turning a problem into a business opportunity was a game changer for me.
Dani McKenzie

Dani McKenzie

Principal Technical Program Manager, Amazon/Twitch
        Ethan shares his approach based on his experience as an Amazon VP that you can measure yourself against. You can have a personal network to get this information. (I don't.) Or you can get it directly from this beautifully designed training. I found Ethan's advice extremely valuable.
Claus Höfele

Claus Höfele

Director of Engineering, On & Author “Drawn to Leadership”
        Ethan touched on the essence of what the promo committee does: they basically look for the "best reason to not promote you". To reach a leadership level (in tech, Staff level), "not working across team boundaries" is a valid reason to not promote; "not setting multi-year strategy" is actionable feedback, but not strong enough to block a promotion.
Di Wu

        This course provides vital guidance for professionals aiming to enhance their career prospects. Ethan, an industry expert, effectively conveys his insights with sound reasoning, real-world examples, and stories, establishing instant credibility among participants.
