YPO Retreats, Forum and Mentor Trainings  – and more

Ready to have an amazing Forum retreat experience?  Want to have Chapter events, Forum Fundamentals and Moderator training that get your members energized and engaged? Are you intrigued with the YPO Mentoring program or Four Step Forum Exploration process, but want support in getting them rolled out or refreshed?  Would a strategic planning retreat give your chapter a stonger foundation from which you can really build a legacy?

Ginger – You rocked!  We got a lot out of your facilitation and approach. Your energy and thoughtfulness matched what was needed in Bravo Forum on this retreat. Thanks for making what you do feel effortless on our journey to becoming bad ass. We will continue the conversations!”

Prior to working with Ginger, I was chronically frustrated with my inability to accomplish my objectives as effectively as I knew I could. Just as frustrating was the fact that – when exploring where the breakdowns occurred – I realized that it was ME (not a dearth of time or a shortage of options or ideas) getting in the way of my own effectiveness.

Stepping back and exploring these breakdowns only became more frustrating because of how vexing even (seemingly) simple changes proved to be when implementing. “Doctor, Heal Thyself” is far easier to say than to do. While hopeful that a coach would prove helpful, my skepticism toward coaching lay just below the surface. Nevertheless, I endeavored to give it a shot. At exactly the time I engaged Ginger, I found myself dealing with the most significant professional challenge I have faced over the past decade.

Having Ginger as a sounding board proved to be invaluable throughout. Rather than peaking there, over the past six years we have established a relationship which is so  important to me that I don’t make a major decision without consulting her on the “how” and almost always on the “what.”  The issues we work on run the gamut…from personal to professional, and I have utilized Ginger’s team exercises, practices and cadences as an important part of running my own firm, in helping the companies I advise, in optimizing the boards I serve on and in refining my own YPO Forum and small groups that I lead.”
