The Catalyst Think Tank

A think tank by Webster’s definition is “… an organization that consists of a group of people who think of new ideas on a particular subject or who give advice about what should be done — also called a ‘think factory.’”

Catalyst Consulting Group, LLC brought this concept to consultants, entrepreneurs, and small business owners as an opportunity to co-mentor each other from 2013 through Spring, 2016. Nancy now is available to consult with your company or organization to start a Think Tank at your location.

Here’s How a Think Tank Works: Members introduce themselves by sharing a recent success or lesson learned. Then throw their names into a hat and if yours is picked, you have up to 20 minutes to get great ideas, advice, feedback, or answers about your business or work-related question or need from other folks like you who have excellent experience and knowledge to share. Three people benefit from this undivided attention in the remaining hour. If the group is large, you can divide into two tanks. Members can post their thoughts, applications of ideas, and questions to a Think Tank Blog.
