Prolifiko’s coaching programmes are fully scalable and can be tailored to the development needs of your research staff as well as your institution’s training requirements and budget.

Practical support, grounded in research

Prolifiko’s coaching programmes are rooted in theory but take a highly practical approach.  Participants will learn tactics they can immediately apply to their writing.

  • Insight into personal writing ‘tendencies’
  • Techniques to find time and prioritise writing
  • Tactics to deal with procrastination and blocking
  • Methodologies to build motivation and confidence

These are the building blocks of a productive, scholarly writing system which lead to long-term behaviour change and productivity improvements.

All coaching participants receive a subscription to Prolifiko Digital, a unique, self-coaching platform that works in harmony with Prolifiko’s in-person and online coaching.

Accessible across desktop and mobile, the platform provides support outside Prolifiko’s formal coaching programmes and helps writers build their writing motivation to develop long-term writing routines and habits.

Participants also get access to a members-only area of the website featuring exclusive expert tips, resources and tool kits.

The four available products are:

  • Prolifiko Digital Productivity Package: Six months' access to the Prolifiko Digital productivity platform and an online writing productivity coaching course.
  • Prolifiko Digital PLUS Tailored Workshop: a six-month subscription to Prolifiko Digital, an online course, and a live expert-led workshop/webinar and Q&A tailored to the needs of Licensor’s authors.
  • Writing Productivity Workshop: a face-to-face workshop delivered on-campus by productivity experts. Content is tailored and includes practical exercises and on-site advice.
