HOW DOES IT WORK?
PART O | INTRO SESSION
Book a complimentary 30 min intake session for your team. If you're not there yet, start by scheduling a quick 1:1 chat to learn more.
This is an opportunity for you and your co-founder(s) to:
Understand more about the Confidante program
Share what success looks like for you and your team
Walk through a sample exercise (Working Style Diagnostic, please complete in advance)
After the session, you can decide if you would like to continue with the program.
PART I | RELATIONSHIP BUILDING PROGRAM
3 Months (meeting every other week)
The initial 6 sessions (3 months) of our partnership will walk through a defined set of exercises to get to know each other:
Individual Reflection (Relationship Resume, Personal Motivators)
Company Vision (What is Success, What is Failure)
Working Together (Co-Founder Partnership Agreement)
For continuing teams, the Co-Founder Partnership Agreement will be reviewed every 6 months in a 3 hour in-person session.
PART II | ONGOING SESSIONS
Ongoing (meeting every other week)
After "Part I | Partnership Building Program" is completed, we will address any open concerns, frustrations, or other needs during our sessions every other week. A sample agenda could look like:
Brief overview of last session & what has happened since on the company-side
Discussion of areas of frustration or tension that have not yet been discussed
Summary of commitments & how we will bring these learnings into the next two weeks of work
