BuildingEnergy Bottom Lines

What is BuildingEnergy Bottom Lines?

Bottom Lines is a business development program that uses the peer coaching model and is open only to NESEA business members.

It consists of regional peer groups of architecture, engineering, building, design/build, energy efficiency, and renewable energy businesses dedicated to high-performance building. But the focus is not on building. The groups meet several times a year for two-day facilitated sessions at individual members’ places of business and communicate online year-round. Bottom Liners share the inner workings of their businesses with their peers who help them sharpen their skills and improve their Triple Bottom Lines (People, Planet, and Profit).

What is Peer Coaching?

"Peer coaching is a confidential process through which two or more professional colleagues work together to reflect on current practices; expand, refine, and build new skills; share ideas; teach one another; conduct classroom research; or solve problems in the workplace." -ASCD
