Board Meetings - Peer Feedback

TAB members from around the San Francisco Bay Area help one another by sharing their experience, success, and yes, even their failures. Group Board meetings provide a supportive environment that triggers ideas, offers diverse perspectives, and builds confidence. Board members guide one another to make better business decisions and to stay on track.

Executive Coaching - Business Advice

Our highly experienced, certified facilitators provide executive business coaching that help members prepare for the monthly Board meeting.

Management System - Tools & Processes

TAB's proven system includes a suite of business tools designed to help you assess, plan, manage and control your business to produce sustainable results. Some examples include our Monthly Progress Report (MPR), business planning template(s) and Vantage our proprietary on line-business diagnostic. Our management tools have been refined and simplified over many years. They help you stay on task and focused on what's most important.

Marque Foods, Inc.

I initially joined TAB to learn how to better deal with ‘me.’ I perceived myself as a primary obstacle to growth. With TAB, I got plenty of ideas on how to view myself and the business differently and this has definitely improved my business. I learned that my business plan is a living document and track it periodically using the monthly progress report. In short, TAB has helped me design business processes that are more systematic, efficient and get results.

Being in business for the last 25 years and then joining my TAB board, I’ve seen such an improvement in my management style and effectiveness. TAB is a great resource for me, the information and the experience with small businesses as well as the insights shared.

For us, it’s all about generating clients. And how we’ve gone about generating those clients with the help of TAB has really been key to our ongoing success. I knew that I needed a sounding board, needed some outside expertise. And that’s exactly what TAB brings to the table. And it also holds my feet to the fire and keeps me accountable.Kalar is a patient and inquisitive listener who seeks a thorough understanding of the root origins and causes of issues before collaborating on potential solutions. He also helps me to consider "out of the box" type solutions and opportunities that invariably expand my thinking. With his help and guidance, we have resolved numerous tactical and strategic issues and positioned our company for significant growth.

TAB helps you recognize that pretty much everybody has the same type of issues with their business. It clears your head and it re-energizes you. When I leave a tab board meeting I’m re-energized to conquer not only that day, but the next year. TAB helps us focus on ourselves and the other TAB members…the answer is sometimes written on your forehead and you just need a mirror to be able to read that answer.
