Discussion Groups


Powered by Partnering for Performance, Discussion Group participants engage in facilitated conversation on topics that matter to all members of the group, and meet once a month. With the use of business coaching, mentoring, and management consulting, all groups learn to gain focus, problem solve, and set and achieve goals.

These are more than discussions; objectives are achieved through “homework” assignments and group members are held accountable for completing assignments.

What are some of the things we do?  A few sample topics:

  • we watch selected TED talks
  • new skills are learned, such as speaking, and learning about voice tone
  • sales and marketing tips and skills
  • writing a simple one page business plan
  • connecting mindset and attitude to objectives and goals
  • interactive exercises at each meeting
