Dear [Your Manager’s Name],
I’m interested in continuing my professional growth and driving value inside our company by learning new skills, frameworks, and insights. To do this, I’d like to sign up for the [Scale Guided Sprint Name], with your approval to get the expense reimbursed.
Scale Guided Sprints are 4-week personalized experiences designed for full-time employees to level up with the support of a 1:1 coach. Scale coaches have experience from top companies including Google, LinkedIn, and more.
Here’s why I think the program is a good fit:
- It’s short (just four weeks) and designed for full-time professionals, so my usual work won’t slip through the cracks
- I’ll be coached by and learn from an experienced operator, so it’s a great opportunity to benchmark against and learn from the best
- I'll work my Scale coach to personalize the program for my specific needs. I will leave with actionable recommendations to drive growth
- I’ll develop strategic decision-making frameworks, concepts, and exercises that I can share with our team
- It’s relatively inexpensive vs. other offerings — I’ll learn from world-class operators and get 1:1 coaching for a fraction of the cost of other professional development programs and executive coaching
I can also provide a report of my key takeaways and recommendations to share with the rest of the team.
Would you approve of reimbursement for this expense?
Let me know what you think.
