Raising the Bar for Globond Members

Your Globond Management Team has decided to raise the bar on how we communicate serve and inspire our Members. This means doing better what we have been doing all along, and doing some new things to better help Members reach (and even exceed) their goals.
Here are the ways we are improving Globond’s communication with and services for Members.

1. How We Describe What Globond Is About

Globond’s Members, called Globonders, are extraordinary individuals who have achieved success and satisfaction in their personal and business lives, and who are now dedicated to be world leaders by making their business models more influential and working together for the benefit of humanity. Globonders come from many countries and cultures, and represent diverse businesses and professions.

Globond International, Inc.’s mission is to connect, empower, fund and strategize ways to meet the personal and professional goals of its Members, who will in turn shape social and global change. Through its large network of Friends of Globond, the powerful networks of its Members, Globond can access virtually any organization or person on the planet.

Globond’s business model is unique and effective because of:

  • The high quality of its members – organizations and individuals (usually CEOs).
  • Their enthusiastic and valuable support of each other’s goals.
  • The professional and personal guidance of the Globond Team (management).

Globond produces value for its Members by actively tapping into these business forces, the 3Ss:

  1. Synergy – the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
  2. Serendipity – “the art of making unsought findings” (Pek Van Andel).
  3. Synchronicity – coincidence of events that are meaningfully related.

The Globond Team guides Globonders in these ways, called the 5Rs:

  1. Raising the bar – assessing Member goals, strategies, resources and results to increase the potential for success.
  2. Presenting creative ways to enhance the Member Reputation.
  3. Introducing Member to valuable Relationships – with other Globond Members and important non-members – with support in how to leverage them.
  4. Generating new and larger Revenues – or other monetized forms of activities, such as investments, sponsorships and donations.
  5. Rallying for sustained success – follow up to assure that Member goals are achieved during the membership term.

2. A New Version of Globond’s Membership Criteria

To become a Globonder, people need to meet these Membership criteria:• Achievement of personal and professional success.

  • A strong desire to partner with other world leaders to create a strategic plan for empowered personal and professional goals that in the process benefit humanity.

  • Linked to a variety of extraordinary individuals and companies who are like-minded.
  • Taking of 100% responsibility for his/her behavior and creation.
  • Possession of and access to a mix of resources upon which success depends.

It uses a scale of from 1 to 10, with 1 = extreme need and urgency for the service, and 10 = already doing excellently in this area so no need for it at all.

5. New 30-60-90-Day Action Plan for Globonders

The Globond Team is in the process of using a new format to specify what new and current Members can expect from Globond and should do themselves in order to reach their goals. Actions will be given for 30, 60 and 90 days, to constitute a plan. In time all current Members will receive such a plan. Together Team and Members can make your goals reality.

6. Globond’s Member Payments

The Globond Team wants to share with Globond Members the risks and rewards of business. This is the basis of the payments each Globonder makes to Globond International, Inc.

Membership in Globond involves these three types of payments:

  • Annual membership fee. This includes the Basic Services to achieve your stated goals, $10,000.
  • Premium Services fees (optional). The Globond Team discusses and recommends certain of these to elevate and accelerate your success potential; fees, usually at a discount, are set by and paid to the service providers.
  • Success fees. These performance-based fees are based on achieving financial goals (paid when the cost of the annual membership is exceeded), and extremely valuable goal achievements; the specific amount or percentage of these fees are negotiated with the Member.
