I. Mindset in a Forum
Forums foster a unique environment where accelerator leaders can share openly without fear of judgment. Members listen to each other with deep respect, avoiding giving unsolicited advice. The focus is on learning from shared experiences rather than problem-solving. This mindset enables authentic vulnerability and trust.
II. Confidentiality in a Forum
Everything discussed within Forum stays confidential. Members commit to never sharing others' stories or revealing sensitive details. Breaching confidentiality results in automatic removal. This allows complete openness in sharing challenges and private matters. Confidentiality is critical for building trust.
III. Responsibility in a Forum
Forum members take personal responsibility for fully engaging in and committing to the group. This means prioritizing attendance, arriving prepared, and participating with undivided attention. Members also take responsibility for raising any concerns directly so they can be addressed openly, rather than letting issues build up privately.
IV. Vulnerability in a Forum
Accelerator members are willing to share at a deeper level by exposing their real challenges, fears or weaknesses. Rather than maintaining a facade of having "everything together," they reveal their authentic selves. This requires leaving egos aside and sharing their 5% most impactful experiences. Vulnerability breeds more vulnerability, gradually creating an environment where meaningful sharing occurs.
