We need to make sure the fit is right, and that we meet your group's interests, needs and personality.  We have to both think that engaging with The Growth Workshop will create new growth.  If a 'hard sell' or extreme convincing are required, it likely means it won't work!

Generally, a couple hours of conversation are required to determine if a relationship is right:

  1. We talk about your business, your needs, and what you want to do. 

  2. Further conversations follow, with some thinking and research in between, to see if a relationship starts.

  3. If for a possible company or peer group, we bring other group members into the conversation ... it is important that all group members want to do this, and that it will fit with their individual needs, personalities and styles.

  4. If a relationship makes sense, we develop a preliminary charter, defining what you want to do and accomplish.  

  5. For groups, we typically begin with two (2) workshops ... the first covers the background and basics of Collective Intelligence, the second extends into our Training, Innovation and Execution framework.

  6. We set pricing and terms.  There are several options depending on how tailored Workshops need to be.

  7. After the first workshops, we re-assess fit and develop a refined charter for the relationship.

  8. For coaching and consulting, we define a charter and decide together the right mix of one-on-one work, workshops, seminars, or projects.


Company Groups are generally priced per workshop.  For groups that integrate our Framework with their internal processes, we can look at fixed retainer arrangements.

Peer Groups begin with a fixed monthly fee per member, generally less than most other good peer group services.  As a venture is developed, we agree on equity split and other expense and profit sharing between members.

Coaching and consulting can be hourly or project based.  We together define required ROI on any engagement.
