• Tech start-up Sama has launched an app that it says provides personalised one-on-one executive coaching to redefine employee growth and development across a range of industries. Sama’s app connects professional coaches to every employee across the whole organisational structure, from interns to members of the C-suite. Organisations need to sign up their employees who will then be invited to download the Sama Professional coaching app via Google Play or the App store.
