Kaizen – Continuous improvement – applied to leadership
MD2MD membership includes two main types of meeting
Both available online and in-person
Peer Challenge Board
The essence of MD2MD is reflected in the confidential peer challenge board. This where members work together and learn from each other, discussing practical business challenges, and using them as real case studies in handling leadership challenges.
A business school with a difference….
In some ways like a business school but actually very different, as you’ll consider case studies that are true, immediate, and real. A key participant in the case is there to answer probing questions in person. We all learn by considering how we’d handle the challenge they face.
Simultaneously, the individual at the heart of the case study gains from the centuries of wisdom focused on their issue. In some ways like a board meeting. Peers act as coaches or non-executive directors by supporting you when you’re facing a challenge, and challenging you when you’re not.
A board meeting with a difference…
You’ll hear a dozen perspectives, based on a wide range of beliefs. Insights won’t be tainted by conflicting interests, the need to represent shareholders or to protect a position. You’ll simply get objective advice from independent peers who understand the challenges of business leadership and who are willing to provide their best advice about your situation in exchange for your best advice on theirs.
Speaker led workshops
Led by world-class professional speakers, MD2MD workshops provoke thinking and motivate action. We invest in top-calibre expert practitioner speakers, of a standard rarely available to business leaders in a small group.
The topics are valuable and varied. From topics like sales, marketing, operations, finance and IT to leadership challenges such as handling difficult conversations and motivating your team. We also tackle subjects that are more fluid, such as ambitions, goals, motivations, and values.
MD2MD membership also includes places at two annual events
Open to all members and suitable guests
Retreat to Advance
The Retreat to Advance is a two-day event, where you are encouraged to step back from your day-to-day activity and review your medium and long term plans with trusted peers to ensure that your current activity is well aligned with your medium and long term ambition for your business and your life.
