Kaley’s approach to Forum Retreats

Transformational Forum

Transformational Forum is the next era of Forum. TF complements and significantly expands on YPO-WPO’s proven Forum model, representing the cutting-edge best practices of small-group leadership, interpersonal dynamics, and personal transformation.

This retreat is the best way to learn the new Four-Step Presentation Model. The end goal is to transform the type and depth of discussions to deep and meaningful levels.  This offers the opportunity for continuous member learning – about themselves and about how to interact in a more open, personal and authentic way.

The "movement" for Transformational Forum was started by Shirzad Chamine's article. View this promotional video for other YPOers experience with the process. For detail the Forum retreat structure, read more here, or contact Kaley for how it would work in your Forum.

Forum Training

Forum Fundamentals

Forum Fundamentals ensures every member is familiar with the guidelines, norms, protocol and meeting structure that help Forums provide high value.

The program ensures each attendee is equipped with:

  • Vision: a shared definition of what you want your forum to be or the skills to define it in your Forum.
  • Guidelines: the structures, agreements and best-practices that keep the forum on track.
  • Structure: the best agenda and processes to get the most out of your time together.
  • Protocol: a common language to explore issues and deepen sharing.
  • Self-Exploration Basics: the building blocks for meaningful presentations and explorations.
  • Conflict Skills: a proven tool to safely and respectful address conflict or issues.
  • Foundational Coaching Questions: a methodology and structure for helping presenters identify the true question they want to address.
  • Topics to Explore: a list of worthwhile individual and forum explorations.

Moderator Training

The success of a forum is greatly affected by the leadership of its moderator. Ideally, the moderator and assistant moderator can attend together to enhance the adoption of “Best Practices”.

Topics covered include:

  • Shared Principles: ensuring your Forum has the foundation to support the best possible experience.
  • Going Deeper: From updates through experience sharing; creating a meaningful level of sharing among all members.
  • Meeting Structure: Creating the most effective agenda and protocol.
  • New Tools: Training on YPO’s new 4-STEP presentation process.
  • Meaningful Presentations: How to use the various presentation formats for highest take-home value.
  • Addressing Conflict: Safely address conflict and reach resolution within a forum.
  • Continuous Growth: Guidance to identify and adjust to your forum’s stage of life.
  • Moderator Exercises, Tips and Tools: Tactical suggestions to help a moderator be successful.
  • Tailored Topics: Specific areas of interest or concern for attendees.
