5 interesting things about Peer Groups

If you're considering joining a Peer Advisory Group, it's important to assess whether it's the right fit for you. Here are some factors to consider:

  1. Are you willing to be open and vulnerable? Peer Advisory Groups require members to share their experiences, challenges, and goals. If you're not comfortable being vulnerable and sharing your experiences including some struggles, a peer group may not be the right fit for you.

  2. Are you committed to attending meetings regularly? Peer Advisory Groups rely on consistent attendance from members to foster strong relationships and provide valuable feedback. It's a commitment that generates a return but sometimes, some people really are out of town more often than in town.

  3. Do you value diverse perspectives? Peer Advisory Groups bring together individuals from different backgrounds and industries. If you're open to hearing diverse perspectives and ideas, a peer group could be a great fit.

  4. Do you want to expand your professional network? Peer Advisory Groups offer members the opportunity to connect with other like-minded professionals, which can lead to new business opportunities or collaborations.

  5. Are you willing to give and receive feedback? Peer Advisory Groups rely on members to provide honest feedback and advice to each other. If you're not comfortable giving or receiving feedback, a peer group may not be the best fit for you.

Ultimately, the decision to join a Peer Advisory Group depends on your personal preferences and goals. It can be helpful to attend a group meeting as a guest to get a better sense of the group dynamic and determine whether it's the right fit for you.
