A premium online group consulting opportunity for Lower Middle Market business owners and executives.

Every business owner, executive, board member, and trusted advisor knows that psychological dimensions have massive impacts of business success or failure.

These research stats make it utterly clear how crucial Business Psychology (BizPsych) is:


of employees believe a distinct workplace culture is important to success.


of employees believe they use more than half of their talents at work.


of business underperformance is caused by people issues.

Research Tells Us...

Google's Project Aristotle research found that ALL of the top

5 predictors of team effectiveness are BizPsych dimensions.



The Problem

Most BizPsych “experts” only give lip-service to psychological dimensions:

  • They say they are important but then don't address them...OR
  • They tell you what to do but not how to do it...OR
  • They expand your mindset without upgrading your skillset

Where all of this leaves you: You know that you and your business need to attend psychological dimensions, but you don't know where to look to truly get those addressed.

Well, you have just found it.

What is the Lower Middle Market? 

Businesses generating an annual revenue in the range of $5 million to $50 million are considered to be in the lower middle market segment of the economy.

How Does Each Session Work?


Your 6 monthly 2-hour WarmSeat sessions will be held the third Wednesday of each month.

You will attend an initial 1-hour Container-Building session to meet your cohort members and create a cone of silence.  This will occur one hour before the first cohort session. 

Prior to the monthly meeting, you will view a video on that month's topic, whenever it's convenient for you.

Based on what comes up for you while you watch the video, you'll select what you want to WarmSeat on when your cohort meets. 

How each WarmSeat session is structured:

  • Each member will have a 20 minute WarmSeat with Dr. Gruder on that month's topic, followed by a debriefing on the benefits the other members borrowed from that WarmSeat.
  • Cohort members will post their ideas and resource recommendations for each WarmSeat in your cohort's private forum.
  • Your cohort's private forum will be a place for everyone to dialogue with and support each other between monthly sessions.
