Opening Discussion Topic:

Your Use of Coaches – What’s Working?

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
