According to European research, Peer Groups or Forums are successful:

  • More than 12,000 Leaders worldwide who belong to Leader forums.
  • These Leaders represent approximately 1.1 million employees.
  • The combined annual revenue of their companies exceeds €250 billion.
Progressive facilitates the meetings, contributes to ideas and provides one-on-one mentoring support.

What is the selection process?

Peers are selected by two critical factors:
  1. Their ability and willingness to contribute, and

  2. The size and nature of their companies
Consequently there is an qualification process to go through involving interviews, personality and business capability assessments. It is important that the mix of people and companies is right for everyone to get value out of it.

What is involved in the Peer Group meetings?

These are problem-solving meetings designed to help you over-come the hurdles and barriers you face in your business.   A typical meeting will involve the presentation of 2 or 3 members strategic or operational issues and brainstorming to find solutions.  An action plan is then agreed upon.  Progress reports by members are also presented.

Progressive will organise the meetings which will occur once per month for 3 hrs each. Each member’s experiences and ideas are shared combining to form a knowledge pool we can all draw from.

You will develop an action plan and report back to the group.  You will be using our on-line dashboard software to measure progress and help keep you on track to  your goals.

These sessions are motivational and partnerships and alliances between members can soon form. Occasionally we will arrange an expert speaker to present to the group on a topical issue. We will also run some events for the combined groups.

Example topics covered are:
  • staff management: recruitment, retention training, motivation
  • new market development
  • exporting
  • management of technology in the workplace
  • leadership
  • developing teams
  • developing stringer customer relationships
  • developing strategic alliances
  • operational process
  • marketing and sales strategies
  • sales team development and remuneration
  • ownership issues
  • organizational structure
SWAT Teams

SWAT teams are formed when there is a complex or large issue that can not be resolved though the normal business meeting.  The SWAT team may include an outside expert.

One-on-One Mentoring

You can take opportunity to have a mentoring session with the Progressive Facilitator once every three months. This will enable you to provide feedback and share your thoughts confidentially about how things are going.
