Peer-Mentor Group Facilitation

KPC provides several facilitation experiences and is particularly well-known for the work done with the New Orleans Business Accelerator. This organization, called “NBA” for short, is a unique peer-mentoring group on hyper-drive.

Each NBA peer-mentor group is composed of 8 to10 successful cross-industry leaders (“players”) who come together once per month for a meeting led by Kimberly Putman. In the first part of the meeting, Kimberly presents an interactive leadership development topic designed to educate the players on a relevant research-based business concept. In the second part of the meeting, players participate in a peer-mentor session designed to help solve challenging business issues. They push forward on personal and professional goals and motivate each other to gain traction in new areas.

Four times per year, the group is joined by 5 to 10 additional leaders or “coaches” – influential and highly successful leaders in the New Orleans community. It is considered an honor to be invited to participate as a coach/advisor/mentor to an NBA “player.”
