We bring together high capacity Christian CEOs and business owners who want to grow their leadership competencies, be better stewards of the businesses that God has entrusted to them, and lead with biblical principles in mind.
As such, Convene (www.ConveneNow.com) is designed to help equip, inspire and connect Christian CEOs and Business Owners to excel in building better businesses, increasing leadership success, and having greater Kingdom impact.
The idea for Convene came about in 1995 as some Christian CEOs were talking about their experience in a business peer-learning group. They were frustrated because during their sessions they were discouraged from exploring what the Bible had to say about a particular business topic or challenge and they were unable to pray for each other in the context of the meeting. Being entrepreneurs at heart, they decided to start something, which became Convene. Now, Convene has teams of Christian CEOs and business owners meeting in many states across the US and beyond.
Here are our three distinctives:
- CEO2CEO – Convene Forum Day
Dr. Switzer facilitates best-practice lessons based on Convene’s organizational development roadmap, which zeros in on the leadership and management of businesses. Members work on CEO stuff to grow their businesses and make a bigger impact on the lives of those they lead. This is done in a confidential, safe environment.
- ONE2ONE – Executive Coaching
Each member meets one with Dr. Switzer monthly to work on implementing strategy, solving problems, aligning personal and professional priorities, and framing up challenges to bring back to their Convene Team for even greater input and impact. Dr. Switzer is a professional coach (PCC) with more than 1,000 hours on one on one conversations. He serves as a thought partner, confidant, and co-strategist to help leaders make progress solving the issues that keep them awake at night.
- LIFE2LIFE – Peer Community
Team members have each other’s backs. They engage in activities outside of business with their peers. Usually, spouse participate so they have a chance to meet other Christian leaders and their spouses. Team members share the adventure together of growing their businesses in an environment that is often challenging.
IMPACT – The results are amazing to see as these members gain confidence, manage and lead better, grow their businesses, become better stewards of their business, and obtain results they didn’t know were possible. Benefits of the Convene team include:
- Access to best-practice resources
- Wise counsel from other experience Christian leaders
- An opportunity to grow in a safe, confidential environment
- Individualized executive coaching
- Encouragement to lead with biblical principles in mind
- Build relationships and have fun with other like-minded business-oriented couples
