[prMac.com] New York, New York - Polymash Inc. today is pleased to announce the update of Embracing Change, a one-of-a-kind self-help app that puts users in the leadership role as they deal with change, in business or any other aspect of their chosen lifestyle. To hire a professional business or personal coach can cost upwards of $400 per hour. By comparison, this app, at $9.99, provides users with a practical coaching experience and proven methodology at their fingertips. Up until now, this transformational change methodology, Appreciative Inquiry, has been available only in face-to-face coaching, workshop settings and large organizational summits. This app enables users to design and experience this positive coaching method for themselves and others.
App developer, Polymash Inc. has partnered with Robyn Stratton-Berkessel, a published author in the field of human and organization development to create this coaching app to be a personal, engaging, interactive self-development experience. Clients interact with the graphics, question-sets, and use the in-built tools to connect with their own leadership, as they write down what they discover about their strengths and their approach to change. According to Stratton-Berkessel, "It's about self-direction and empowerment. Clients write their stories, dream their best futures, design their courses of actions and develop sustainable implementation strategies, using all the tools right within the app,and can come back to review and modify whenever they want."
The new release of Embracing Change improves on some of the original interactive features, making this app experience immersive, engaging and personally relevant:
* A step-by-step, clearly structured practice
* Audio coaching and training tips (NEW)
* Social media integration (NEW)
* Guided approach to story telling
* Text edit tool to respond to step-by-step questions and record insights inside the app
* Ability to share notes with others
* Interactive graphics of models of change

The author, Robyn Stratton-Bekessel is a leading practitioner, author, coach and facilitator in the field of human and organization development. She is excited about what's possible when delivering rich multimedia content on mobile devices. "It's a whole different way of engaging, not only from the perspective of how content is presented, but it's also about having a multi-dimensional experience and interacting with the content", says Stratton-Berkessel. She is confident that self-help, self-directed learning apps will become much sought after in app marketplaces. "The experience on the iPad lends itself to a more intimate, personalized way of focusing on topics that are important to all of us," she says. She is currently creating other apps along these lines with Polymash Inc.
