Long-Term, Focused Group Learning Opportunities
In 2006 Marty Grunder formed a group designed to help landscapers improve their business using an accountability group called “ACE”. ACE stands for Accountability Creates Excellence. Accountability groups have been around for years and they don’t work for everyone. However, Marty’s “Ace Groups” sure seem to be working for 28 landscapers. His groups have been able to accomplish goals and implement real change. The groups meet in person 3 times a year. One of the meetings is at a member’s place of business where a complete, honest critique is given to the owner by the other 13 members and the facilitator. Enormous strides have been made by the participants as a result of the suggestions and candid feedback given.
In addition to the 3 regular meetings, the group regularly communicates using a special piece of software that enables face-to-face communication with up to 6 members of the group. Members also have unlimited access to Marty as they work on 3 priorities each year. The key to the whole group is confidentiality. Members are required to sign a strict, legally binding confidentiality agreement. Currently there are two ACE groups. One is run entirely by Marty Grunder and is for contractors with annual revenues of at least $1 million. Matt Caruso runs the other group (with involvement from Marty) for contractors under the $1 million sales level. If you’d like to learn more about joining one of these groups, please submit your information here. As of now, both groups are full and have a waiting list.
