Indeed, peer learning has never been more important as the coronavirus crisis re-prioritizes the needs of growth companies. Leaders must suddenly deal with such unexpected challenges as:

  • What can be done to avoid layoffs.
  • Motivating employees who are now telecommuting, many for the first time.
  • When moving the business forward, how to avoid looking like an ambulance chaser.
  • How to avoid feelings of isolation when running the business, especially when holed up at home.

Virtual PeerSpectives Roundtables quickly put you in contact with other business owners, presidents and CEOs of second-stage companies via a video conferencing app. Sessions are led by trained PeerSpectives® facilitators from the Edward Lowe Foundation. The roundtables leverage a proven set of protocols, giving participants a convenient — and confidential — place to delve into their most pressing issues.

In addition, participants may enroll in the System for Integrated Growth® (SIG), which provides them with a SWAT team of business experts. This virtual program addresses specific needs in HR, operations and supply chain, finance and accounting, global trade, sales and marketing, succession planning, secondary market research, digital marketing and customer prospecting.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Why PeerSpectives?” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left|color:%23ffffff” google_fonts=”font_family:Playfair%20Display%3Aregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” css=”.vc_custom_1589290319909{padding-top: 3% !important;padding-right: 3% !important;padding-bottom: 3% !important;padding-left: 3% !important;background-color: #009999 !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1589290984179{margin-top: -25px !important;padding-top: 15px !important;padding-right: 25px !important;padding-bottom: 15px !important;padding-left: 15px !important;background-color: rgba(204,255,255,0.83) !important;*background-color: rgb(204,255,255) !important;}”]
