Athletes have coaches to help them become world-class - why not founders? After all, how many times have you been told running a startup is like running a marathon?
A coach can help you give yourself a competitive edge and expand both your potential and the potential of your company. As a founder, you are in a uniquely difficult role that is pressure-packed (and often isolating and lonely). Why not seek committed, consistent and unbiased support for yourself?
FounderForward supports founders and executives by providing them the tools and frameworks to develop into their full, authentic leadership potential and achieve their goals. We are deeply passionate about helping founders and their teams learn, grow and succeed.
We have developed several 2-hour and half-day workshops for founders and founding teams. We also work with accelerator programs and VCs to present to their portfolio companies. Our workshops cover a range of leadership development and business topics - from Self Awareness and Conversational Intelligence to Culture and Team-building to Fundraising and Business Development.
We craft custom coaching frameworks for each founder we work with. One-On-One programs last 6 or 12 months. We also conduct one-on-one workshops aimed at working through a specific issue a founder is facing.
Peer Group Coaching
We run group sessions for 6-8 founders at similar stages of company-building. The groups meet for 2 hours each month for 6 months. These sessions offer a unique combination of: 1) insights and action items for successful scaling, 2) personal and leadership development work, and 3) hands-on, real-time problem solving. In addition, they provide a life-long network of peers. Each founder also gets one hour of personal coaching each month.
