Company Leader Groups

We need to make sure the fit is right, that we meet your needs, personalities and styles.

  1. We have a conversation about your business, your needs, and what you want to do. That will give us each a good sense for whether the fit might be right, and if further conversation is worth pursuing.

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

  3. 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 we agree a relationship makes sense, we develop a preliminary charter for the group.  We typically begin with two (2) workshops ... the first covers the background and basics of Collective Intelligence, the second extends into Innovation and Execution.

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

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

Peer Leader Groups

Peer Groups are generally formed by the members.  Peer Groups work best when each member knows at least one other member.

We need to make sure the fit is right, that what we do fills a real need and fits with the group's interests and personalities.

  1. We have a conversation about what you want to do, and what you need help with.  That will give us each a good sense of whether a TGW Peer Group is worth forming.

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

  3. Where other potential group members are known, we bring them into the conversation ... it is important that all group members want to do this, and that it will fit with their personalities and desires.  (For an established peer groups, this group discussion can occur immediately.)

  4. If we agree forming a Peer Group makes sense, we develop a charter.  We begin by scheduling two (2) workshops ... the first covers Collective Intelligence, the second extends into Innovation and Leading.  In those first workshops we refine the group's charter.

  5. (If you are interested in our forming a Peer Group for you to join, we define the charter you are looking for and the people you would like in the group, and then together we search for and recruit those members.)

Peer Group members share the cost of our involvement, determined based on the group's charter.  The monthly cost per member is generally less than other popular peer group programs.

 

Our Peer Groups are focused on dramatically increasing individual and Collective Intelligence to create new ventures, rather than just improving existing businesses.

Projects

Whether you have specific opportunities to develop, or simply want to explore what might be possible, a few phone conversations can determine if we're able to help.  We only engage in projects where the likelihood of success is high.

If we both see a good fit, we develop a charter and begin with a couple Leader Group workshops to flesh out details.
