Trajectify has partnered with Benjamin's Desk to create and run their Group Coaching program, available to members (and prospects) of the Philadelphia region's most connected community.

There comes a time when founders and CEO’s face the challenge in scaling a company and its organization. Whether you're working toward your first million, or on the path to grow from $1M to $10M, you'll be discovering new obstacles and insecurities that you hadn't previously encountered. You might feel alone, or stuck, or just that it's more difficult than you expected. The good news is that others have been there before - your peers, coaches and mentors - and by working together, you build the skills, experience, confidence and support to move forward and achieve bigger goals. 

Coaching Groups combine professional leadership and business coaching with the benefits of support from peers who face similar situations and challenges. The feedback, support, and accountability from those who have been in that same situation has great positive impact. This program is offered exclusively for members of Benjamin’s Desk and has been developed and led by the coaches of Trajectify and Mike Krupit.

We’ve designed three tracks specifically for the Benjamin’s Desk community:

  • Early Stage Acceleration: For young growth-stage companies with $200K annual revenues or less.
  • Power Growth Group: For companies with $250K to $5M in annual revenues and are focused on achieving high growth, at least 2x.
  • Professional Services Acceleration: For solopreneuers, freelancers and small service organizations looking to improve operations, sales and predictability.

Each group of 6-10 entrepreneurs is selected to be at a comparable stage in their business and leadership development and diverse in their experience, vision and markets (non-competitive). The cornerstone of the program is a monthly working meeting facilitated by Mike Krupit, typically segmented into three parts:

  • Accountability: Reviewing company statuses, milestones, and goals and accountabilities for the next session.
  • Education: Learning and discussion on a pre-determined topic, often with a guest speaker or mentor;
  • Mastermind: Structured discussion on a few challenges facing some of the companies;

The meeting time and Benjamin’s Desk location is determined by consensus of the group. We also maintain a private platform (online group) where members can communicate with coaches and each other, along with any guest speakers or mentors we’ve engaged.

It is the unique combination of professional coaching and peer-to-peer learning and support that helps solve problems, develop and evaluate opportunities, and provide a platform for your accountability to growth.

If you're not a Benjamin's Desk member, you can add a virtual office for $47 or hotdesk for $97 and become part of the community.

Such groups work when its members take it seriously and participate consistently, so the program has a six month commitment. This gives the group a real chance to bond, build trust, and for the program to take root and reach peak effectiveness. Each entrepreneur is required to sign a “pledge” reinforcing their commitment, participation, and confidentiality and trust.

The concept of using peer groups for support and growth is not new. Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich described “Mastermind Groups” in 1937. You've probably heard of larger organizations that have since turned these into big business, often franchisable, expensive, or poorly facilitated. The challenges of entrepreneurship have evolved to where these structures aren’t as effective. The leadership, cost, tools, and time commitment make these organizations outdated.
