Opening Discussion Topic:
We’ll have a brief presentation about the value of coaching, and some best practices from The Leadership Playbook of a Trillion Dollar Coach who worked with Google’s Eric Schmidt, Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, and other Technology Superstars, and their organizations. And he previously was CEO at Apple’s Claris and also at Intuit.
Members will then share and discuss their use of business coaches, with those who are using coaches sharing their top 3 Key Success Factors in getting the most value from their coaches.
As always, we’ll look to hear and discuss, “What’s Keeping You Up Nights?”
We’ll also be serving as Strategic Advisory Board Members to our Featured Member: Brian Arandez, President of Maroon Vault

Our San Gabriel Valley Technology Round Table meets on the 1st Friday of the month (with the exception of some holidays, like Jan. 1st ). We have been meeting via ZOOM since April, and look forward to meeting again in person – once we can do so safely, hopefully early in the New Year.
"I probably would have to pay 16 consultants to get the kind of great information I get from the Round Tables and the people in my group."
"ABL has been a great pay-off for me and I have found great value. It has brought me help in financing the company, resolving financial issues, and customer problems. And it’s served for personal growth, too."
"The big thing that ABL provides to us is that it’s companies of like interests, as opposed to other types of groups that have CEOs with maybe very divergent interests."
"The best thing for me about ABL are the great people in the Organization. It’s a caring group of people, they are very open in sharing their own problems, and that leads to an environment where you can share your problems back. And they’re non-judgmental. They’ll give you the best advise they can. You can take it or not."
