We are rethinking employee resource groups (ERGs) in a way to provide experience sharing that educates, aligns, supports your teams and gives a strong ROI on time and resources invested. With facilitated peer groups we create safe and powerful spaces for teams to share experiences.
Clear up bottlenecks by encouraging peer knowledge sharing.
Support the development of balanced organizations that encourage people to address their biases.
Diversity & Inclusion
Experience sharing brings best practice and proven methods to the decision making process.
Teams develop clear direction and confidence in their roles.
Sense of Purpose
Team members learn professional presentation, ideation & problem solving skills.
Best outcomes are reviewed and re-worked over time creating stronger results.
Best Practice Evolution
Management has increased clarity on potential future leaders.
Knowledge is transferred between team members and not lost in team changes.
Participants love what peer groups do for their morale, sense of belonging & relationships.
How it works
Professional facilitation to guide & support your people.
Peer group session with 8-12 members in same level positions (sales, finance, executive. etc.) or members of ERGs.
Reporting on every session within 48 hours
Members participate in exercises to help build comradery and trust among the group and learn how to effectively participate in the program.
05/06 Onboarding Program
Presentations, Clarification & Experiences. We guide your team members through a process that provides actionable solutions to your organization's toughest challenges:
06/06 Regular Meeting Flow
Participants prepare their own experiential case study for peer review. Training is provided on how to deliver a powerful presentation that provides a clear picture of the challenge to the group.
1. Case Study presentation
Participants ask clarifying questions to help better understand the challenge and to further investigate the case being presented.
2. Clarifying Question Period
Once participants have all the info they need on the case they begin to share their own relevant experiences, best practices and what 'what-if' scenarios for the presenter to consider.
Attendees will present a current thought or challenge and their peers will ask questions, share experiences and offer support. Attendees will be asked to commit to an action and report on the outcome in the next session.
