What is it that all successful leaders have? Do they know something that we don't? Do they have a secret that we can learn from...
Today's guest, Mo Fathelbab, believes they do...and he believes it's a little thing called FORUMS.
Mo is author of Forum: The Secret Advantage of Successful Leaders and founder of Forum Resources Network, LLC (FRN) and Alumni Forum Services (AFS). FRN has provided Retreat facilitation and Forum training since 1997 through a network for experienced facilitators and its clients include the Young Presidents’ Organization, World Presidents’ Organization, Entrepreneurs’ Organization, CEO Resource Alliance, the Virginia Council of CEOs and numerous corporate clients. AFS was founded in 2010 to provide Alumni Forums to business school alumni. AFS clients include several Harvard Business School clubs and UC Berkeley.
With over 1900 programs in 32 countries under his belt, Mo has conducted more Forum programs than anyone and is a leading authority on the subject. He has educated trainers around the world to conduct Forum training and retreats.
Prior to starting FRN, Mo served as Executive Director of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) for 7 years.
Mo and/or Forum Resources Network have appeared on The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal online, CNBC, NPR, Investor’s Business Daily, The Montreal Gazette and monthly on CNN fn.
Mo loves cooking, yoga, and stand-up paddle boarding and triathlons. He completed the Switzerland Iron Man in just over 14 hours. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Finance from the University of Maryland and lives in Alexandria, VA with his life partner Sally and their son Eli.
Today Mo and I chat about Forums and masterminds and how to make them work, specifically how to ensure there is trust, vulnerability, and avoidance of conflict.
