Embracing Change is the first self-development app that puts users in the leadership role as they deal with change - in business, or any aspect of their chosen lifestyles. To hire a professional business or personal coach costs upwards of $400 per hour. By comparison, this app, priced at $9.99, provides users a coaching experience and proven methodology at their fingertips. Coach and author, Robyn Stratton-Berkessel guides users step-by-step via video and audio, as she follows the world-renowned change methodology, Appreciative Inquiry, which up until now has been available only in face-to-face coaching, workshop settings and large organizational summits.
Stratton-Berkessel, has partnered with app developer by Polymash Inc. to create a personal, engaging, interactive self-development experience. In this app, clients are in charge of how deeply they participate in the content. They interact with the graphics, question-sets, and use the in-built tools to connect with their own leadership, and are strengthened by what they learn about themselves and their approach to change. According to Stratton-Berkessel: "It’s about self-direction and empowerment. Clients write their stories, dream their best futures, design their courses of actions and develop sustainable implementation strategies, using all the tools right within the app. They can come back to review and modify their changes whenever they want.”
The author is excited about what’s possible when delivering rich multimedia content on mobile devices. It’s a whole different way of engaging, not only from the perspective of how content is presented, but it's also about having a multi-dimensional experience and interacting with the content", says Stratton-Berkessel. Embracing Change provides a potentially transformative change experience and is definitely of great service and utility to users who are serious about envisioning and creating changes for themselves.
Embracing Change is one of the few self-help apps available. Stratton-Berkessel is confident that self-development, self-directed learning apps will become much sought after in app marketplaces. “The experience on tablets lends itself to a more intimate, personalized way of focusing on topics that are important to all of us,” she says. She is currently creating other apps along these lines with Polymash Inc.
