Frequently Asked Questions About Solomon Coyle Peer Groups
Principals are expected to extend the benefits of peer group membership by involving their management team. Solomon Coyle facilitates regularly scheduled online forums dedicated to issues and best practices in Sales, Marketing, Design, Financial Management, Human Resource Management, and Operations Management.
To reinforce and facilitate this knowledge culture, Solomon Coyle provides every peer group with a private intranet where the members can access the group’s library of reference materials and shared documents, exchange ideas and information, stay abreast of upcoming events and activities, and participate in Quick Polls and other research being conducted within the group.
We understand what it takes to successfully manage and grow a peer group by virtue of extensive resident experience in managing trade and professional associations as well as operating the Solomon Coyle peer groups.
We apply our industry knowledge, facilitation expertise and association management best practices to create tailored peer group programs that offer positive learning experiences while improving the members’ performance and profitability.
Mutual trust and confidentiality are assumed in every conversation and every exchange of information. Each member is required to sign a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement, which basically holds that, with one exception, all information you share stays within your specific group and is not shared with other groups or other Solomon Coyle clients. That one exception consists of anonymous survey data that is aggregated as part of an industry-wide benchmarking project.
We have never experienced a problem with trust in our peer groups.
