The program is NOT a course or series of trainings.

There are no single courses, books, or programs that can address the breadth of topics that this membership addresses. 

In this exclusive coaching membership, you will hear from like-minded counterparts, and both give and receive feedback.

Why is this important? Because in your busy practice and life, you don't have time to sit through hours of classes to find the nuggets you need, or worse, to find the nuggets you need aren't part of the course after all! As a member, you can ask your peers about their similar experiences, and ask for guidance on how to best manage business situations and conversations. 

Each month we cover a new topic along with contemporary concerns (i.e., building relationships, working effectively while you and your team are remote, impactful client meetings, and coworker interactions in the new post-COVID environment, in addition to working through and post firm mergers, mentoring, managing staff, and more), while addressing specific questions, concerns, and experiences you have. In this secured community for members only, you share only what you are comfortable sharing.
