Changing The Status Quo Is Hard. Don’t Go At It Alone.

The 120VC Transformational Leadership Network (TLN) is a community working together to take their careers and businesses to the next level.

Welcome

The TLN is the world's only peer network focused on developing leaders that effectively enable their teams to Get Sh*t Done. It’s a professional community and network platform for growth through access to accountability, mentoring, networking, resources, jobs, and events.

Overview

Connect, Learn, Mentor & Grow

Great leaders don't wing it, they prepare and practice. No one wakes up in the transformative leadership zone. It is a long, hard, and sometimes painful journey. But it doesn’t have to be.

Surround yourself with people who can help you unlock your leadership potential. People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world with a positive mindset, a clear purpose, and a desire to be servant leaders.

New to this? Join up with those who may be a little ahead of you on the path. Been at this while? Get inspired by the young, up-and-coming members with fresh perspectives. No matter where you are in your journey as a Transformational Leader, you will learn, teach, connect and grow as you mentor each other.

Find your people in forum

Having a support system is so important. Peer group forums of 7–10 Transformational Leadership Professionals are the foundation of the TLN. We meet virtually on a monthly basis connecting you with people who help each other navigate leadership challenges and identify hidden opportunities by sharing their own experiences in a trusted and confidential environment.

Transformative outcomes from shared experiences

The TLN is a safe space to ask tough questions and get a multitude of honest perspectives. Chances are someone has been through what you’re going through. It could be a new opportunity, a cross-road moment, an ongoing issue, a transition, or a business or family crisis. Each forum we check in on the physical, mental, financial, and community health status sharing our highs and lows. No one is told what to feel, think or do. We share our individual experiences and coach each other to reach our potentials.

Everything that’s said in the forum and between members outside of the forum is confidential. This confidentiality extends to written communication. Be sure others are not checking your TL Network voicemail and email.

    If there’s a breach of confidentiality it is to be discussed with the group and can result in the removal of the offending member.

    Forum meetings are facilitated by a moderator, structured to ensure value is created, and confidentiality is maintained.

This petition must meet unanimous approval for reinstatement. If a member is removed from Forum, the member may petition other forums in the TL Network for reinstatement.

    120VC, thanks for creating the Transformational Leadership Network. Every month I get the benefit of a personal coaching session with a fantastic team of professionals. All sorts of challenges are presented, and each person shares personal experiences and methods to tackle them based on decades of real-world experience.tlmnln

     by James Burk on 120VC

    Being part of the TLN has been great so far. I have been able to share my experiences and challenges in a safe and positive environment with a group of people that have had similar experiences. Hearing how they dealt with their challenges and achieved personal growth has helped me determine how best to move forward with my own situations.
