LEVERAGEDWISDOM is a peer-to-peer learning organization for CEOs of privately held businesses who want to build the equity value of their enterprise while creating a better life/work balance.
The core deliverable of LEVERAGEDWISDOM is confidential, facilitated, peer-to-peer learning groups for entrepreneurs committed to working on their businesses not just in their businesses.
Monthly Peer Meetings
A LEVERAGEDWISDOM group meets monthly for a full day in a facilitated process organized around a structured agenda. The group includes up to twelve owners of privately held businesses committed to being helpful to one another. Being among peers who are not in the same business and pledged to confidentiality creates a safe environment where issues and opportunities can be candidly reviewed.
Each member brings skills; wisdom and experience that can amplify each of our best leadership traits and help improve our own decision making process. Each of us has blind spots that hinder clear vision and it is our commitment to help each other see around those blind spots. In this context of the group we can make mistakes without harm, avoid failures and nurture success.
In addition to the Member’s monthly peer-to-peer group work, each member participates in a monthly “closed door” one2one coaching session. This session is meant to challenge assumptions, uncover real issues, acknowledge limitations and help the entrepreneur understand what’s really going on; because, it’s “hard to see the picture when you’re inside the frame”. These coaching sessions help the leader marshal his or her personal and business resources to make better decisions which in turn leads to greater equity value in their business.
Feet to the Fire
Ultimately, the most challenging part of our learning model is accountability. As part of the process each of us must state our strategic business and personal goals for the short and long term. We then leverage our collective wisdom to help each other achieve our goals and hold each other’s “feet to the fire”.
Not For Everyone
LEVERAGEDWISDOM is not for everyone. But, if you are an Entrepreneur who has the roles of owner, leader and manager and want to understand how the decision making process of those roles separately impact equity value, then LEVERAGEDWISDOM would be a great learning and growth opportunity for you.
