Is the xchange Approach right for me if I'm just starting my business and/or I don't currently lead, teach or convene any type of group yet?
Yes, if leading, teaching or convening groups is an aspiration of yours, the xchange Approach is likely the fastest path for you to be successful.
Between our training and Learning Lab resources, modeling how we build our own community and business, and the connections you can form across our network of members, this is THE place to be, for purpose driven change agents who want to unlock the power of groups.
Is the xchange Approach good for one-to-one coaching?
Absolutely! One of the fundamental learnings in the xchange Approach is question design, which is an excellent opportunity to hone your skills and get better results with your clients. You will also learn how to effectively convene small groups and design conversations for exponential outcomes, giving you the ability to design and host valuable group coaching sessions for your clients.
Is individual coaching offered as part of membership?
Members of the xchange community have access to several forms of coaching:
Foundations (Level 1) Members have access to hours of recorded coaching sessions inside of the xchange Learning Lab. Level 1 members also have access to “peer coaching” through our “Practice Sessions” offered on a monthly basis.
Mastery (Level 2) Members receive the same access as Foundations (Level 1) Members AND may attend live Design Studio Group Coaching sessions with the xchange team for support. For many members, this benefit alone is worth the price of membership.
Mentorship (Level 3) Members receive the same access as Mastery (Level 2) Members AND may also join live Design Studio Group Coaching sessions with Jon Berghoff (Founder of xchange).
Additionally, you’ll find opportunities to give and receive support among the membership community at our Practice Sessions, Advanced Online Trainings, Business Accelerator, ASK/GIVE events and inside the private (members only) Facebook group and Learning Lab.
Is it possible to upgrade my membership?
Yes, you can upgrade your membership at any time during the annual subscription period by reaching out to a member of our Admissions Team. Upon upgrading, you are required to begin a new one year term, and you are subject to the current published rates. What we cannot promise is that our prices will be the same. Additionally, Action Taker discounts, savings of up to $1,000, are only applicable during the Online xchange Experience (OXE), to honor you for taking the leap of faith with us, during your initial OXE experience. To upgrade your membership, email email@example.com and our team will be happy to support you.
Can I cancel at any time?
Membership is an annual commitment, which renews as a monthly commitment after your first 12 months of membership. Early Cancellation will be subject to a 50% fee. Please refer to our cancellation policy for more information.
How does the Zero-Risk Membership Promise work?
If within your first year of membership, if you have met all of the current certification requirements and do not believe that xchange has over delivered on our end, then we will be happy to provide you with a 100% money back guarantee, no questions asked.
Do you offer scholarships?
Yes, we offer a limited number of scholarships available to potential members. If you are interested, please request our scholarship form at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Once received, complete it, and submit it for consideration.
How can I use my guest pass?
Mentorship (Level 3) Members are given 1 guest pass to use per Online xchange Experience (OXE) and 1 guest pass to use per Awakening Conscious Leadership Experience (ACLE).
Guest passes can only be applied to events that occur during your current membership term.
For example – if you are a Level 3 member and your membership expires in September, you cannot use your Guest pass for a December OXE unless you renew as a Level 3 member. The guest pass would no longer be applicable if you were to renew as a Level 2 member, as that is a special benefit of the Level 3 membership.
Guest passes may only be used for non-members or inactive xchange members who have not yet attended either OXE or ACLE.
For more information on how to submit guest passes, please review the Getting Started Here, #2 on Membership Levels and Benefits.
How can I get a membership for my team or business partner?
We do offer discounts on group memberships when certain criteria are met. Contact an xchange team member for details.
