Meeting Format: We will meet for 1.5 hours, giving roughly 30 minutes to each of the three participants. We may opt to go 30 min each in turn, or, walking through each discussion point together.
Group Guidelines: We will abide by the following guidelines in our group meetings:
Be committed to the group; your regular attendance matters.
Maintain confidentiality. Only share outside the group what you shared about yourself during the call, not what others shared.
Get directly to the issue and the point by using “succinct speech.”
Stay focused on one issue at a time.
Allow others to finish what they are sharing before responding.
Keep the feedback positive and encouraging.
Avoid advising unless requested.
Bring your very best insights, ideas and dreams and share them with the group.
Group Meeting Schedule & Readings: Please complete your reading, watch the videos if possible (free hyper links to videos included in the section below), and the workbook assignments before each session. Coming to our meetings having processed this information will allow room for the most fruitful discussion and hopefully, transformation.
