We try to make sure that meetings of our members are as productive as possible. For that, we provide them with different frameworks and models that could be used in meetings with other founders. One overarching methodology we use is coaching. Coaching helps people to achieve their goals. Good coaches ask insightful questions, they don't give advice. Everyone can apply a coaching framework. We use the ROSA model the most. It's a cycle of questions, here is what it stands for.
Ask the other person: what's up?
Once you know where they stand, ask them what they would want to achieve.
Suggest them to come up with 3-5 ideas of how they could achieve it.
Predict what could prevent them from taking the first step. Make them commit.
