We help individuals to commit to becoming exceptional leaders.

We all strive to be a leader or a high performer. Whether you are a freelancer, manager or member in a team, you want to lead your situations and solve problems. As leaders, we sometimes ask ourselves this imperative question: How do we develop our leadership skills to become successful leaders? There are many materials available, but how do you practice the learnings in your day-to-day routine?

Leadership is a habitual work.

A researcher at Duke University found that more than 40 percent of the actions performed by people each day weren’t actual decisions, but habits.

When you rise in the morning, you determine nearly half of your day by the patterns you’ve either intentionally created or passively allowed.

The answer lies in setting the right intentions every morning and practicing reflections so that you can proactively improve your leadership skills with the power of your mind. It can be done by journaling daily on a diary, but it is static and not interactive enough for some people.

How can Rocky AI help you?


Rocky is an AI leadership coach. Rocky is a conversational AI that asks you the right questions, gives supports to help you become more self-aware and mindful about how you spend your day and interact with your team.

With Rocky AI, leaders can do daily primings & reflections from conversations with Rocky AI to practice:

  • clarity and priority
  • communication and people skills
  • balance and confidence

Why these three topics?

Since we joined the Techstars Accelerator program, we have spoken to startup founders and high-potential freelancers and found out that leaders commonly have challenges in the three aforementioned areas. Interestingly, one of our cofounder Harry Novic participated in a closed workshop for experienced leaders where the leaders shared their stories and challenges, and even their challenges are related to the above topics mentioned.

Applied digital skills and benefits of the app

Is Rocky a journaling app?

Yes, Rocky is a digital coach asking you daily reflection coaching questions for your growth mindset and it is a unique journaling experience that captures your thoughts and feelings, moods, and interests over time and gives journaling prompts for reflection, together with insight to help you repeat personal success factors and practice your soft skills. Rocky is like an automated Bullet Journal Method to track the past, order present and design the future road to success.

Is Rocky a health app or a fitness app?

Rocky is helping you indirectly with fitness and health. However, Rocky rather is helping with the power of challenging coaching questions and reflections. That allows you to recognize your own strengths and weakness, and use this to guide on-going learning. By reflection you will develop your skills in self-directed learning, improve motivation, and improve the quality of life and practice habits of highly successful people.

What is the difference of Rocky to a calm app or headspace app?

The calm app is for sleep and meditation helping you to relax and reduce stress. The headspace app is also helping with meditation and mindfulness to relax. Rocky instead is an artificial intelligence bot that uses the power of coaching questions with guided AI conversation. As an AI chatbot and digital coach, Rocky will inspire you to daily reflect. The conversations work best if your take the time to actually answer the questions with mindful reflective answers which might require some effort from your side.

Is Rocky a therapy app?

Rocky is not replacing a therapist and does not have the intention to provide scientific therapeutic approaches within the app. The method instead used by Rocky is solution-oriented coaching. Rocky is created to help you to practice soft-skills with the power of coaching questions. The science behind is Repetition, a success factor for learning and to help transition a skill from the conscious to the subconscious. Through repetition, soft skills as life skills and social skills are practiced and rehearsed over time and gradually become easier. Rocky is an intuitive approach to answer questions relevant for your road to success.

What is coaching?

Coaching is a process that aims to improve performance and focus on the ‘here and now’ rather than on the distant past or future. Coaching questions are unlocking your potential for performance and success by helping you to learn and practice rather than teaching you. Like personal trainers, but for your growth mindset. Rocky is a digital coach, an AI chatbot asking you those powerful question with daily reflections. The main focus of Rocky is to help you to implement soft skills as communication skills, interpersonal skills, leadership skills, life skills or time management skills. The AI is using qualities derived from leadership coaching and executive coaching.

Is Rocky an alexa app with artificial intelligence

There are many (artificial intelligence) ai companies, products and apps available, each with their own features and benefits.

Rocky uses artificial intelligence as an AI system:

  1. Conversational AI bot - Giving you an almost seamless coaching chatbot experience with neural network technology
  2. Tutorial and skill recommendation AI - Coaching leadership style with guidance, help and proposals
  3. AI generated intentions and goals - Helping you to identify and inspire with new goals

However, Rocky is not booking appointments like an alexa app.

The Rocky artificial intelligence AI experience is unique in the market and available as google play store app or within apple app store.

Rocky app vs remind app vs scheduling app vs notes app

Rocky is not replacing a notes app, scheduling app or a task list app. However, Rocky is a sort of remind app with smart goal notifications and follow-up reminders: Like appointment scheduling apps, Rocky reminds you to practice growth mindset and can help to choose important task and set the right priorities rather then managing your task list or schedule. The approach of habits of highly successful people with help you in the long run to be productive.
