The Value of a Round Table

I founded my business 21 years ago and had the good fortune of having some mentors along the way. I even invested a modest amount in coaching. But the one resource I didn’t have was a Round Table of my peers to rely on for support, advice, objective insight and encouragement. 

I looked at some peer support groups but found 1) that I didn’t qualify because my business was too small or 2) I couldn’t afford the cost.

Twenty-one years later, Truth at Work came into my life. And what a difference it has made.

As a Chapter President, I have the privilege of participating in a regular monthly Round Table with my peers – other chapter presidents from around the country. This has quickly become the most important monthly meeting on my calendar. One that I don’t ever want to miss. (In fact, I drove home from vacation in September and timed it so I’d make the Round Table meeting on my day of arrival.)

You may ask, why has this become so important? 

Because:

  • I know these individuals hold the same faith values as I do.
  • They are open and honest with me, while at the same time showing concern for me as a whole person. In other words, I trust them.
  • They are willing to share their “lessons learned” with me.
  • Everything discussed is held in strict confidence.
  • They value my input as much as I value theirs – mutual respect. 

So my question is: where do you go for objective input and the wisdom found in many counselors (Prov. 15:22) on your business (and life) from fellow Christians? 

Don’t Let a Pandemic Keep You Down

Do you believe God has a plan for you and your business? Has the COVID-19 pandemic caused you to question that plan?

More than once this year, people have explained to me that they’d like to join a Truth at Work Round Table, but they cannot do it because of the pandemic (or substitute in the words ‘time’ or ‘money’).

It seems to me that, more than ever – and especially during a pandemic — we need God’s presence in our daily lives and businesses. Trusting in God’s plan will bring about just what you need. If you’re not sure, see Jeremiah 29:11. 

If you think that being part of a Round Table is the missing equation in your life, don’t let a pandemic (or time or money) be the barrier.
