Leadership Round Table Focus Groups, also known as Transformation Table Groups, and sometimes called Master Mind Groups consist of 7 to 12 people who meet one hour per week over a period of four to eight weeks.
Leadership Round Table Focus Groups offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a group setting to sharpen your business and personal skills. A Leadership Round Table Focus Group helps you and your fellow members achieve success. Members challenge each other to set strong goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them.
Leadership Round Table facilitators start and run groups. They help the group to dive deeply into discussions, and work with members to create success — as each member defines it. Facilitators are the secret to thriving Leadership Round Table Focus Groups. I’ve seen plenty of groups fail because of poor leadership.
Through the Leadership Round Table process, first you create a goal, then design a plan to achieve it. The group helps you with creative ideas and wise decisions-making. Then, as you begin to implement your plan, you bring both success stories and problems to the group. Success stories are applauded (loudly!), and challenges are solved through peer brainstorming and collective, creative thinking.
The group requires commitment, confidentiality, willingness to both give and receive advice and ideas, and support each other with total honesty, respect and compassion. Leadership Round Table Focus Group members act as catalysts for growth and supportive colleagues. This is the essence and value of Leadership Round Table Focus Groups.
What a Leadership Round Table Focus Group is NOT
- It’s not a class. The main focus of a Leadership Round Table Focus Group is the brainstorming and accountability support among the group members.
- It’s not group coaching. Leadership Round Table Focus Groups are about the MEMBERS sharing with each other, not about the Facilitator coaching individuals in a group setting. You get everyone’s feedback, advice and support.
- It’s not a networking group. While you may share leads and resources with each other, it is not the main focus of the meetings. However, through your connections with other members, you will find plenty of joint venture opportunities, lead sharing, and professional networking.
