Along time ago when I was first starting out in Business I took on an ActionCOACH as my first ever business coach and have been through their coaching program and peer-to-peer groups. I remain friends with my first ever coach and have friends and colleagues who have bought into this international franchise of business coaching and peer-to-peer learning groups. Their format is more akin to our JSO and Pathfinder groups in that they meet for either short interactions or one day (no stay over) and that the session is predominantly taken up by the ActionCOACH franchisee providing some shared learning on a chosen subject rather than a full day locked in peer-to-peer support. Their structure of the peer-to-peer groups is more akin to our Pathfinder groups choosing which problems to look at based on a democratic vote by those present in the time available. Both groups offer 1:1 coaching aside of the time in Mastermind although within ActionCOACH there is an additional charge for this. UNLIKE ActionCOACH., My TrueNORTH is a privately owned Limited Company and does not Franchise out their business model. The level of investment required to join ActionCOACH. is approx 35% more than that of Explorer Mastermind.
