A support group for professionals

 

KINGFIELD — Local professionals have formed a support group of sorts through Catalyst Consulting Group’s new Think Tank, which meets biweekly at a coffee shop.

Catalyst Founder Nancy Weiss said she started the free sessions because she wanted to meet other like-minded consultants, entrepreneurs and business owners.

“I thought that with the combined knowledge of people I know, we could really solve a lot of problems,” she said. 

At the Think Tank, participants introduce themselves and throw business-related questions into a hat. A few of the questions are discussed over the course of an hour at Royal Grounds Café. Prior topics have included how to handle a long-term client’s decision to leave, and when to turn down new work. Weiss takes notes on each session and sends take-home “kernels of wisdom” to interested people on her mailing list. 

“It’s kind of like co-coaching,” Weiss said.

Catalyst Consulting develops training programs, provides business writing, and coaches small businesses. For more information on the Think Tank, contact Weiss at nancy@catalystconsultinggroupllc.com
