Silicon Valley founders and their investors are recognizing the value of having leaders gather monthly in forums with their peers to learn with and from each other.
Joe Greenstein, co-founder of InnerSpace, had a vision to create a forum made up of his community of friends and colleagues to support one another in practicing conscious leadership both in and outside of work. Because these leaders share many of the same challenges, one person’s work is everyone's work, which makes group learning very efficient.
Forum member Premal Shah says, “I can learn a bunch of concepts, but to actually have nine other stories of people, of characters I know well, of people I love, and to see the struggle and see attempts at resolution,..it's just an incredibly rich and, frankly, efficient way to learn. It's surprising to me. It's been wonderful.”
The group met for a year; each of the 10 members created significant shifts both in their professional and personal lives. Below you can hear and read about the experience and benefits from three of the members we interviewed.
Nine of the ten members signed up for a second year. They’re excited to deepen their practice as conscious leaders and create even more exquisite lives.
