Over the years, co-founding teams often struggle with differences of opinion, personality quirks, or straight up disagreements and they continue sweeping all that under the rug till it's impossible to ignore. A co-founder intensive is a guided process that includes both 1:1 and team work to understand the current pain points, address the elephants in the room, and find the best path forward.
