Don't isolate, get Coached and Peer Advised by top CEOs

What Would You Do If You Had Tried And Tested Strategies To Help Guide Your Decisions?

Vistage - A Transformative Leadership Community for Visionary CEOs

In 1957, A CEO asked his peers for help...

"I don't have enough time," is what every leader says, and every leader solves this problem when they get into Vistage.

Most leaders believe they are over committed, then they realized they are committed to the wrong things.

Leaders needed to quickly enhance their knowledge and expertise on topics from finance, sales, marketing, culture, hiring, investing and they wanted to learn from credible sources. And they wanted to be able to build relationships with experts and thought leaders they could trust and know they were vetted.

As the leaders enhanced their knowledge they began to work on their effectiveness. This meant they needed someone to hold them accountable, call B.S. when necessary and challenge their thinking.

It wasn't enough for just the CEO to gain the fresh perspectives, unbiased ideas, creative thinking and the amazing resources. They wanted others within their organization to also benefit. And so leaders asked for ways to get their leadership team learning and growing. Soon, HR, Sales & Marketing, Emerging Leaders all had ways to tap into learning.

As their companies grew so did the opportunities and the challenges. That's when they tapped into the worldwide community of their peers. In a moments notice they could get the attention of top leaders worldwide. Leaders that had walked in their shoes or could provide the expertise to help them navigate any situation. And, Tiger Teams were born.

D.A.V. means 'Day After Vistage.' It was born when leaders said they had incredible insights during the day-long meeting with their peers. The day after the meeting, they shared the ideas with their team, igniting synergy, alignment, accountability, passion, and growth.

The leaders are all vetted so there is a high- level of trust and respect. Lifetime friendships are born.
And, every now and then they like to have fun, get silly, chill out, goof off and just shake off the stress of leading.

Who wouldn't want to be in this community? That's what the Leaders say that have been in Vistage for 5,10,20 years. And yet, it's not for every leader. Leaders must be vetted, interviewed and committed to enhancing their life, relationships, and leadership skills. It's for people who pay attention to the REAL game of life and the business game of life. It's for those who want to lead from their heart and head. Not just the head. 

Are you on a journey of true leadership, facing challenges and opportunities that test your grit, patience and vision?

What if you didn’t have to go it alone?

Imagine being part of an elite group of peers and having a guide who knows the lay of the land, providing support to take your organization to new heights.

What did Business Leaders Worldwide discover over 65 years?

They learned to not do it alone.
They no longer waste time or money. They save time and money.
They work happier, faster and smarter.
They don't second guess their decisions.
They tap into the genius of their peers and business guru's around the world who they have direct access to.
The don't procrastinate, stress or worry.
They don't delay initiatives because they do not have the expertise, knowledge, resources, talent, experts.
They instead use their peer advantage and collaboration they get quickly connected and supported in exactly what they need. 


What do they know that you need to know?

Since 1957, Vistage has been bringing together high-integrity CEOs, executives and business owners into private advisory groups. Each group is purpose-built to help members help each other improve the performance and outcomes of their businesses.

​In our groups, about a dozen executives (like you) meet once a month to solve problems, evaluate opportunities and work on an assortment of strategic and operational issues.

​Our more than 45,000 members around the world represent a range of industries and a variety of backgrounds.


Who leads the peer advisory boards?

The role of a Vistage Board Chair is to ensure that every bit of that experience and wisdom is applied in a Vistage meeting.

​Chairs are accomplished leaders and former CEOs. They are part facilitator, part coach and mentor.

​They are totally committed to the success of their board members.

​They help stimulate thinking, frame issues, guide discussions, spark collaboration, make connections, limit tangents and ensure accountability in the group.

Still Not Sure?
Let's Add It Up... 45k x 65 x 2.2

​What do these numbers equal?
It equates to the reputation of VISTAGE The World's Leading CEO Organization for 45,000 CEOs, Presidents and Business Owners who for 65 years have elevated their leadership with their peers. Wondering if this is for you?

Vistage Member Companies Grew Revenue At 4.6%
While Non-Members Saw A Decrease Of 4.7%.

​And by the way...
This is not an association.
It's not a chamber group.
It's not a franchise or consulting company.
It's not a networking or leads group.
It's not a club, clique.

It's a for-profit company started by CEOs for CEOs.

​It is selective, exclusive, productive, and everyone in is vetted and I interview them to see if they are a good fit for my Vistage groups.

And also super busy, and yet they invest up to $20,000 and 100 hours to be part of this experience. Committment is high- because value is great.

Vistage has grown more than any other Leadership Peer Group or Forum in the past year. Why?

 Because my members know they can rely on their peers to help them fast-track to the solutions to challenges and problems they have.

So, what did these CEOs and Leaders do that you have not done yet?
