You can invite your own supporter. But why would you need to, how does it work and who do you ask? Here you can find answers to all the questions that you may have.
Working with a supporter is something that is unique to New Heroes. It is a person that you yourself have chosen, someone whom you trust and invite to guide you on your learning journey. Depending on the theme of your learning journey, you can choose your best friend, a family member or a colleague or supervisor - or all of them. Because we know that changing behavior can sometimes be very difficult all on your own. A supporter can also act as a mirror, showing you things about yourself that you do well and things that you need to work on.
You will be surprised to know what others can perceive of you. More often than not, other people notice things that you yourself are not even aware of. A supporter can help with your personal development by:

Your invitation to a supporter says: “I trust you and I value your opinion”. And who doesn’t like hearing that? Supporters see it as a compliment when you ask them. And your supporter is free to determine the amount of time they invest in you and your learning journey.
Don’t panic! Your supporter received a single invitation via email to give feedback. It may be that he or she has not seen the email yet, or has simply forgotten. Feel free to ask if they have read the email. In the meantime you can continue with your learning journey, even without a response from them.

And voila! You have found the right person. Do you have more than one name left on your list? No problem, because now you can invite more than one supporter.
Have you crossed off all the names on your list? Then consider a professional coach. New Heroes has them ready and waiting for you to support you.
A supporter can only see the section for which you have invited them. He or she has no access to the rest of your learning journey. That means that all the other sections remain private. For clarity, we will explain the process below:
