Vistage Executive Peer Groups
For Chief Executives, Managing Directors and Key Executives
Many people who are managing directors and business owners didn't apply for the job. Life chose them! They started a business and did really well. Then perhaps ten years on, you're still working really hard, faced with finance and people issues that you never signed up for. And it's lonely at the top.
If you could pick the brains of a dozen non-competing managing directors, who will give you unbiased, straight-talking feedback, what would you ask them? With Vistage, the world's largest membership organisation for managing directors and chief executives, I chair two private advisory boards in Bristol and Somerset, bringing together local business leaders to learn together, and from one another. Vistage is the world's leading Chief Executive organisation with over 1,800 members in the UK and over 21,000 members worldwide. We help our members become better leaders, to make better decisions, leading to better results.
Is an Executive Peer Group Right for You? And are You Right for an Executive Peer Group?
If you think that you're the 'finished article' and likely to be the smartest person in the room, then it's not for you!
Don't get me wrong; everyone in the room is a successful business person with years of experience. And every one is a lifelong learner, pushing themselves to be better. Leaders need to grow faster than their business, otherwise you're going to get swamped as the business gets bigger, more successful and more complex. If you're trying to grow your business, get more efficient, engage your staff more deeply and ultimately make the business independent of you on a day-to-day basis, then this may be the place for you.
All About Networking?
Sometimes I meet a person who wants to expand their network. Okay, then this isn't for you. There are other places to meet people, build your network and look to expand sales. I encourage you to build your network and raise your profile, but this is a place for serious learning and application.
