Operating a successful agricultural business in a small town can be lonely, and moving your enterprise to a more professional level is no easy task. Implementing new strategies, behaviors and habits takes ongoing support and reinforcement.
Pinion uses deep agricultural expertise and insight to form and lead peer groups with professional facilitation. The peer groups meet regularly to work through business-related issues and challenges, ease decision-making for owners, and provide discussion and information sharing.
Deriving Value from Peer Groups
Peer groups differ from networking groups as they provide business leaders with processes to find new methods and solutions. They allow you to hear questions that you’re not asking, and provide perspective on how those questions might be valuable for you and your business.
Business leaders benefit from peer groups through: exchange of knowledge; regular meetings to offer accountability of goals; peer support to overcome isolation; and confidential discussion of high-level problems and concerns.
