We may be bid bosses today, but a few years back we were totally burnt out.
We moved from one proposal to the next like we were putting out fire after fire. With no strategy for anything beyond the next bid, we had no vision for success.
We were working like mad with no chance to celebrate our wins. Everyone on our team was also working like mad, so it felt selfish to crave recognition.
We wanted to make a real impact on the world, but couldn't see how our work was contributing to the organization's mission.
We loved the work of business development (or thought we did at least), but couldn't see a sustainable career path to enjoy it long term.
Burning out finally brought clarity,
but the cost was a lot to bear.
When we started consulting we saw our experiences mirrored in our clients. Teams were so busy with the daily grind, they struggled to support each other's professional development and ambitions. That's when our coaching programs were born.
Here at Bid Boss, we know that you can't survive in development without a support network. The Clubhouse is a safe, inclusive, and supportive hub we built to help you navigate this world. Benefits include:
Connecting and building real relationships with peers in your field.
Access to exclusive content to help you build business development, management, and emotional intelligence skills with hands-on support.
A super secret job board, with your peers voices to help you know if it's a good fit.
Bid Boss's signature group programs, the Incubator and the Accelerator, bring together small cohorts to learn and practice real world skills. With an emphasis on soft skills, our group programs maximizes impact through peer-to-peer mentoring. You can expect to:
Spend 90 days thoughtfully reflecting on your own experience and mapping out a way forward.
Develop your skills in managing up, negotiation, crucial conversations, and overcoming imposter syndrome.
Building strong connections with a cohort of your peers.
We all hit a wall sometimes. One-on-one coaching can help you get unstuck, whether you're navigating a career change or dealing with a challenging scenario, we've got your back. You can anticipate:
A personalized and proven approach based on the ethical standards of the International Coaching Federation and the CoachDiversity Institute.
Support as you improve self-confidence, relationships, communication skills, work performance, and more - all based on your goals and priorities.

At Bid Boss we prioritize building long standing relationships with our clients. We believe that our clients benefit greatly from learning from each other and seek to facilitate great conversations.
