Are you getting massive value from your forum? Let’s face it, you are in YPO because you want to learn from the very best and most successful people in your community. Your time is hugely valuable and if you are feeling like this is not the most effective use of your time, then it’s time to take a hard look at your forum’s performance.


High Performance Forums

 The Issues:

  • The Forum is not going deep enough
  • People late / absent way too often
  • Repetitive or insignificant issues
  • Not risking / No tingle
  • People show up unprepared, taking calls or emails during sessions
  • No big lift after each meeting
  • Running away from conflicts
  • Members not committed to goals

We can help you fix these issues – easily – guaranteed! We have the solutions to help you do something about it – now. Steve Phillips has been working these exact problems and many like them for over 30 years. He will meet with your moderator, assess your issues and customize a solution specifically for your group. We are confident he can help your forum. In fact, as with all of Steve’s services, you do not pay unless your forum feels there was significant value added. It’s that simple.


Chapter Strategic Planning

Every year to optimize your chapter, leaders pull together to gain alignment, build trust, and to plan for the upcoming year.  These chapter strategic planning sessions can be an opportunity to add huge value for both the leadership team and for the chapter in general. PA combines our expertise in strategic planning with our many years of YPO experience to turbo charge your chapters strategic planning offsite.

Here is a thank you from an incoming chapter chair after their strategic planning day “Steve, what a wonderful and productive day! Thank you so much for your guidance, expertise and leadership. It is wildly evident how talented you are and we were lucky to be able to have you as part of our team. I look forward to staying connected and working together in the future! With Gratitude…”


Forum Officer Moderator Meetings

Moderators, like all YPOers, want continual development and to stay connected to their peers. Moderator meetings call together all the forum moderators to share issues, education, and best practices. In addition to facilitating this meeting, Steve will happily offer several proven exercises that help forums reach their next level and overall high-performance in general.

Steve will work with your Chapter Forum Officer to design a 2-hour lunch meeting to get the best from your moderators. These meetings often include assessing the health of each forum, discussing and overcoming on going forum issues, as well as best practices around forum exercises and retreats. If this sounds like it would be of value for your chapter’s moderators, please feel free to contact Steve for how you might customize this meeting to meet your needs.
