Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the Aspyrre Business Owners Support Group?
It is a group of business owners who meet once per month to share experiences and best practices, get perspective on challenges, plans, and strategies, and think through issues and decisions that are difficult to process with your employees.
What kinds of issues are discussed?
Anything that causes a business owner stress, where getting perspective from other business owners will help, such as how to handle situations with employees, vendors, or clients, how to manage time and stress, which initiatives to focus on, marketing strategy, who others use for technology support, and just about anything else that keeps you up at night.
How is the Aspyrre Business Owners Support Group different from a Vistage or CEO Roundtable group?
Our approach is in line with Aspyrre values, so we insist on creating a psychologically safe environment, and use a well-established questioning and brainstorming process to help each other get to the core of important issues. We also use all the Aspyrre tools that help with time management, communication, and self-development.
If I’m interested in joining a group, what do I do?
Start by contacting Nahid to schedule a phone call, so I can learn more about your organization and you can learn more about the groups that are running right now. Our aim is to connect you with others who are at a similar stage of growth and are experiencing similar challenges. Established groups have open enrollment periods once per year, that allow you to get to know other members, and new groups usually have an introductory meeting to get to know each other before starting. This enables you to meet the others in your group and get to know them before committing.
What is the Commitment?
We like you to commit to participating in a group for 6-9 months at a time, so you can go through the whole cycle of building relationships and enjoying the comfort and openness that comes from having established those relationships. However, if you join a group and decide it isn’t a good fit after only a few months, we do not require that you stay.
How does the pricing compare to Vistage and other CEO Roundtable Groups?
The price for participating in an Aspyrre group is much lower than similar groups for two reasons:
- Most of our groups are hosted by participants in homes or on the premises of their businesses
- One on one coaching is not included in your base participation price – and you are able to include coaching, training or other Aspyrre services as you or your business needs it.
In addition, as part of your base price, you get the added value of becoming a member of the larger Aspyrre community, which enables you to work on your leadership and self-development by participating in additional self-development classes and leadership forums at no extra charge.
If you’d like to learn more, contact Nahid to set up a phone call, where we’ll talk a little bit about your business and your goals and see if any of our groups are a good fit for you. And, to give you a comparison, or if we are not a fit, we can refer you to a number of other groups that may also be worth investigating.
