Mind you - it's not any insight - not any knowhow. What we need has already been earned by others who are successfully making a similar journey to us.
Travelling with those who think like us - we learn faster and we CATCH more.Humans have always learned efficiently when travelling with others - hearing plans, watching them implement, seeing what works - what doesn’t. Mindsets, insights, experience - and trusted, because “we want the same things that these people want.”
Iron sharpens iron, but we have to remain close enough for sharpening to happen.1. Ideas. 2. New Insights. 3. Understanding. 4. Sharpening – all very distinct things. In the right group the four combine to motivate us and importantly, give us the confidence necessary to quickly implement ideas and insights. After that comes a burst of acceleration.
This way is not for everyone…. and that’s OK. iTEC is one example of CEOs travelling faster together. Ambitious business owners got together 5 years ago, and today these incredibly busy members are still meeting- still sharing new insights, picking up the phone to each other - businesses growing, meeting goals, customers increasing in multiple markets.
This group is their trusted tribe - a source of authentic, valuable, business truth to keep drawing from. Why not band together with other CEOs for an easier and faster journey?
