Build Strong Connections

Since 2002, The Galvanizing Group has operated on the principle that great relationships are the difference between failure and success in business. While we all know that connecting with others is important, many of us aren’t sure where to start or how to cultivate relationships over time. In that sense, we are not unlike struggling business owner Robert Hanson. Robert is the main character in Patrick Galvin’s book, The Connector’s Way: A Story About Building Business One Relationship at a Time.

Robert’s story is fictional, but the powerful relationship building tools that he uncovers along the way galvanize him into action and put him on a clear path to success. The Connector’s Way has been embraced by professionals across industries and across geographic boundaries. And while there is no “secret formula” to becoming a better connector, connecting is a skill that can be learned and improved on with commitment and practice.

That’s where we come in.

About The Connector’s Way Coaching Program

If you are committed to achieving business success through better relationships and are looking for the expertise, accountability and support to become a better connector, then The Connector’s Way Coaching Program may be for you. Read on.

Cohort Coaching

Using a group model, we facilitate coaching programs for Connecting Cohorts which are made up of four to six people from a single company or organization. These customized programs are designed to improve participants’ skills as connectors while holding them accountable to specific and measurable goals. Organizations benefit from the collective learning of the cohort and the relationship building momentum that it generates.

Individual Coaching

When cohort coaching is not an option, we offer one-on-one coaching programs for high performers who are committed to achieving business success through better relationships. Programs are individualized to each participant and require a six-month minimum commitment.

Interactive Coaching Sessions

Participants will take part in three interactive coaching sessions per month (each session is one hour long). For those participating in a Connecting Cohort, sessions will be arranged at the beginning of each coaching program with the understanding that participants will make time on their calendars for the duration of the program. One-on-one coaching sessions will be arranged individually.

The Connector’s Way Action Plan

At the beginning of every coaching relationship, participants are asked to assess their current capabilities as connectors and to identify specific goals and objectives for becoming better connectors. They are also asked to share any issues or reservations they may have about relationship building, and to identify concrete ways for making relationship building a priority throughout the program and beyond. Participants will revisit this self-assessment (and readjust, as required) throughout the duration of the coaching relationship and expand on it to create The Connector’s Way Action Plan, a detailed plan of action that aligns their relationship building activities with measurable goals and objectives.

Unlimited Support

Participants will have unlimited access to phone, email and text support for answers to any questions or concerns that come up throughout the coaching program. Participants are encouraged to take advantage of available support to stay motivated and on-target.

Coaching & Training Materials

Participants will have full access to the exercises, systems and materials that make up The Connector’s Way Coaching Program. These are real-life, practical tools designed to generate measurable results. Participants will also receive new materials as they are created. In addition, coaching program participants have priority for registering for special relationship building programs and events as they are developed.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

The Connector’s Way Coaching Program is not for everyone. But if you are committed to achieving business success through better relationships, we are confident in our ability to help you reach your goals. If you are not satisfied, you may cancel at any time.
