FASTGROWTH WORKSHOPS & MASTERMINDS

 

Monthly Executive Boards

 

A business strategy workshop where members are trained using formal workbooks in key areas of business. This forces concentration on specific parts of their company. Members will analyse, in depth, the areas where their business is performing well or badly.

A mastermind where members get the opportunity to present a current business scenario / situation to their peers. The group will then give advice and feedback based on their experience. Members benefit from the experience of others. This process ensures that all options have been developed and critical mistakes are avoided early. Meetings are inspiring, helpful, uplifting, motivating, advising.

Work with our business coaching tools to narrow your focus!

Having peers who hold you accountable for your decisions and actions is the most productive way to create change. The Alpha Group meetings are a place where CEO’s can turn to someone who understands the challenges they are facing, will always give you an unbiased opinion which in turn could save you so much time and money.

The goal of most companies is to increase the market value of your company and to become successful not right away sometimes. However, challenges and uncertainty are always part of long-term expansion and growth. There are times when, like many others, you are unclear about the best way to proceed, intermittently have self-doubt, and occasionally lack the tools and techniques for the tasks you are facing.

Because your peers are equal and are also business owners who are not competitors, you’ll respect their opinions and trust their own experience, unlike your relationship with others, you can’t make excuses with your peers. They know better and you know they know better. It’s why we know that peer groups work so well and why CEO’s who really want to grow and develop turn to The Alpha Groups, they seek accountability, and someone to hold them to the promised that they make, so they can reach the potential they desire.
