COGS”© Christian Organization and Growth Strategies

Are you, or someone you know, looking for a forum to help you stay focused on applying your faith in Christ toward achieving your personal and professional growth or goals? If so, there is good news…

COGS©, Christian Organization and Growth Strategies, mastermind groups now make Christ-centered discussions and faith-based empowerment available to decision makers, regardless of the size of the(ir) organization.

Why COGS©?  COGS is designed for decision makers who are challenged to find support and the strength needed to position their faith at the center of their decision making, leadership style, and sustainable choices.

Now more than every, during my growth coaching and facilitation, I’m meeting many Christ-centered individuals leading organizations, teams, or volunteer groups, or managing themselves in self-employment, who have been looking for dialogue with other faith-centered leaders to share empowerment to persevere.  While Christian Business Leadership groups have existed for the leaders of large businesses for years, little attention has been paid to micro and small business leaders and sole proprietors. The COGS path is designed specifically to put these individuals together with others who have a Christ-centered calling in their daily lives, and who are striving to make sure that includes their work-lives as well.

Current COGS groups are empowering Christian business leaders of all size organizations to put their faith to work by sharing with others without inhibitions;  using the “small group” concept for monthly discussions, and one-to-one conversations as well.  Anyone with accountability for developing or improving company image, operations, or financial performance is encouraged to join a COGS group.

How it works:  COGS brings faith-based leaders together for learning, supporting, and empowering spirit-filled choices. Each group member shares issues and concepts with other about how they’re using, or might use, their faith, and spirit-filled hearts and minds, to develop strategies that protect previous gains, spur growth, and drive well-being for the entire organization and their communities. Through this trusted exchange, members are becoming important cogs in each other’s professional lives.

Members commit to two monthly activities, and can take advantage of a third option if desired. 

  1. Members attend a monthly (5 to7 members per group) one hour gathering to share:
    • praying together
    • successes of the past month, and challenges in the coming month
    • scripture, resources, and empowering stories and messages (member-driven stories and messages) on their monthly topic, growth strategies on alternating elements of one or more of the following: “People, Planning, Product, Productivity, Performance”©, ComAssist’s 5 Pillars of Growth
    • ideas for use by other members to attack and conquer challenges of the day
  2. Members make brief (10 to 15 minute) one-to-one empowerment conversations with one or more other group members each month.
  3. Additionally, each COGS member can take advantage of a 30 minute “coaching” session with Larry Nitardy, Principal at ComAssist, each month; topic of discussion for that 30 minutes is 100% the member’s choice.

As mentioned, all COGS groups are expected to meet virtually (via Zoom) for the October, 2020, through March, 2021, six month sessions; hopefully we’ll be able to do some in-person time before the six month’s end.

COGS is a ministry of LEN Associates, LLC, dba ComAssisst, and as such the fees are extremely low as participation is the key desired outcome.  Member’s investments are preparing for and spending time at the monthly meetings, making the monthly one-to-one calls, and a low monthly fee of $50.00 per month,

We’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in spending time each month with others who, like us all, struggle to keep Christ at the forefront of our decision-making lives.
