Group meetings have three main components. First, members share a check-in to update the group on where they are in their business and personal life. Then, there is a leadership “learning topic” which focuses on three pillars of leadership — self-awareness, company growth and growing your team. And finally, the facilitator uses the Socratic method to lead issue processing, whereby members gain insights from the group on specific challenges and opportunities.
Before the meeting, your facilitator will send an agenda and at times, learning topic materials to review before the meeting. You should spend time before the meeting to form a challenge or opportunity you want to discuss with the group, because the group is your space to process through your high-priority business issues. The value of the group is to learn from the different perspectives each member has on any topic. Discussion by the group around your needs is also foundational to the group.
