The most successful CEO's understand that culture impacts profitability. While most large companies already dedicate time and resources to their culture, many aren't seeing the results they want. "Culture change" has become popular, and there are a million and one books, blogs, guru's, assessments, and acronyms, yet very few of them translate into actual cultural change.
We believe that culture lives in the interactions between your people. Culture is the way they communicate with each other, and what they choose to communicate about. If their relationships are positive and trusting, problems are solved quickly, innovations occur, goals are reached, and the bottom line grows.
ForumWithin™ is a concise, peer group process for employees to interact differently. In groups of 10, individuals engage in time-tested monthly sessions to increase their self-awareness, and build respect for one another. These groups are called forums, and (people love them)! (Vynamic Video Below). The research behind ForumWithin comes from 45 years of data from YPO, EO, and other executive organizations. When CEO's are in a forum, they experience a competitive advantage. When employees are in forums, they multiply the advantages. Their relationships will define your culture and your future.

Collaboration and Culture
ForumWithin™ Business is an intra-company employee benefit that develops collaboration through experience sharing. Employees join monthly forum groups with other employees from the same company. Forum in business creates a safe space for employees to bring their full selves to work, adding trust to their relationships.
When a forum is well designed and implemented, participating executives will become more informed, enlightened and confident about their position in the marketplace. When groups of 8-10 people from the same company gather monthly and follow a proven meeting format and protocol, each member improves their EQ and forms new relationships and new opportunities for collaboration.
The League™ is an inter-company networking and experience sharing platform. Key executives join monthly forum groups from other companies. The League forums create structured and safe environments for key employees to learn more about themselves and each other.
When a League is well designed and implemented, participating executives will become more informed, enlightened and confident about their position in the marketplace. When groups of 8-10 people from different companies gather monthly and follow a proven meeting format and protocol, each member improves their EQ and forms new relationships and new opportunities for collaboration.
