Whether you are looking to develop your leadership skills or to grow as a person you need long-term feedback, support, and encouragement. For the past thirty-five years Bill George and Doug Baker have found this in what they call a True North Group-a small, diverse collection of individuals who meet on a regular basis to explore their lives and develop their self-awareness, self-compassion, authenticity, and EQ. In this desperately needed new book the authors demonstrate why these small groups are the vital link to both leadership and human development and show how to make them successful. Adapting an established five-stage team-building format, George and Baker show exactly how to form a new group or transform an existing group into a True North Group. They provide a wealth of practical resources, including advice on selecting members, suggested topics for the first twelve meetings, techniques to evaluate group satisfaction, and much more. For the millions of people who are searching for greater meaning and intimacy in their lives, this book will help them to grow as leaders and as human beings-and to stay on course to their True North.
