AFFI's Leadership Forum
Who do you turn to for leadership support in your executive role?
Whether you hold the position of President/CEO, are a NextGen successor in a family owned business, or are a rising leader in a frozen food company, it’s important to seek executive-level guidance and leadership support. How do you ensure that you stay current with critical strategies to enhance your leadership skills over time?
Most leaders like you can’t discuss your greatest challenges and concerns with your employees or even your board. Your leadership and ability to execute are impacted by your people, available resources, and many other factors. The good news is you are not alone! In fact, you probably face very similar experiences and challenges as other members in our industry. Let AFFI help you focus on your success, and the success of your organization.
AFFI’s Leadership Forum provides
Group Coaching & Peer Support for leaders like you!
To complement AFFI’s many member programs, we launched a Leadership Forum that provides participants with one-on-one executive leadership coaching AND a peer advisory group they can collaborate with to grow as leaders. While many leadership topics are part of the program, there is an emphasis on issues that executives might encounter in family owned businesses.
AFFI’s Leadership Forum has a maximum of 12 group Members to create a more intimate and collaborative learning environment. Unlike AFFI’s other educational programs, these Leadership Forums balance facilitated learning with interactive group discussion and peer support. Each Leadership Forum Member typically has specific goals and longer-term strategic objectives he or she wants to achieve. Forum Members also focus on some of the following leadership topics during group meetings:
- Delegation & accountability
- Performance management
- Continuous improvement
- Effective communication
- Conflict management
- Time/priority management
- Family business & succession planning
- In-person group forum sessions 2x per year at major Association events like AFFI-CON & AFFI’s
Frozen IQ conference
- Individual coaching & virtual check-in calls between in-person group forums
- Additional 1:1 coaching for any Leadership Forum member as requested
$4,500 per Member per year (pro-rated for individuals who wish to join mid-year)
Additional expenses related to attending any in-person meetings to be paid by each Member
