You (or your new hire, board member, development director) need to find a way to get to Boot Camp. And here’s why:
It’s not a normal training. Boot Camp is chock-full of practical stuff. You’re building tools, developing strategy, and doing/thinking the entire time! Don’t expect two days of lecture and power points (you will be very disappointed). [Yes, you will have to do one practice visit and many ‘rehearsals’ at Boot Camp. A little trust on this one? It’s way better to learn here than with your best prospect.]
Results. You don’t want training; we know that. What you want is money, to get out of the rat race, to learn ‘the secret’. Boot Camp is designed to be both a stepping stone for transformation and a way to generate money for your organization in the next 100 days.
It works. We are out there every week and we will share lots of stories from the field to reinforce our points. Boot Camp drills (and drills) on fundamentals for your organization and for each individual who attends. Tom started Boot Camp as an alternative to ‘consulting’ and to create a tool with incredible value. He wanted to scale our impact by giving everyone an accelerated way to get different results, based on 30 years in-the-field.
It doesn’t cost any money. If you say it’s not in the budget, then you’re right. But if you want to think like an entrepreneur, then this is the place for you. Reallocate money and then use the ROI to provide budget relief wherever needed. UNDERWRITE this as a SOLUTION. Some suggestions from recent attendees:
Have someone ‘underwrite the training’ – as a guaranteed investment.
Put the training on a credit card and pay it off in 30 days with new gifts. (I love this one.)
We also have a session in June (more here).
