Structured programs that enable forums to launch, stay healthy, and navigate challenges and growth.

Taste of Forum

An introduction for new, curious, or prospective members who want to learn about the forum process.

Forum Fundamentals

Designed to give new members and their spouses/partners a solid foundation and experience with the principles and protocols of this most-valued YPO experience.

Forum Moderator & Leadership Development

Current and future moderators learn how to run high-impact meetings using the forum protocol, deal with diverse styles and roles, navigate challenging situations, and lead with influence and compassion.

Forum Supercharge

A forum “tune-up” on process and protocol. Or a reboot for forums experiencing growing pains, transitions, conflict, or stagnation.

Transformational Forum

A life-changing retreat to expand how members explore issues, solve problems and communicate. This program develops muscles of self-awareness, curiosity, and thoughtful interaction which are used in the 4-Step Forum Exploration.

Blend a YPO structured training with the specific needs and desires of the forum members on retreat to strengthen forum processes while building stronger and deeper connections with each other.

Forum Immersions

Also known as forum weeks, forum blitz or forum fusion, this intense, custom forum experience is for chapters, regions or a “stir-fry” mix of forum members.

Education Events & Workshops

Keynotes or longer presentations tailored to address the personal or professional development topic your chapter, network, special interest group, or region would like to address.

Kim clicked with our group, was very open and trusting and got us to open up, which showed us that we had room to “grow”. She also led us very well in our discussions and kept us on track, which was good because our group tends to veer off track a lot.
