Our Professionally Facilitated Advisory Peer Groups Dig Deep on Challenging and Important Issues

Vistage groups meet once a month to solve problems, evaluate opportunities and work on an assortment of strategic and operational issues. They are confidential forums of experienced executives who rely on each other for wisdom and counsel.

And Then It Happens

Our Chairs, Many of Whom are Former CEOs, Expertly Coach Our Peer Groups

Put 12 or so high performing business executives in a room and the potential is enormous. The role of a Vistage Chair is to question answers, not simply answer questions, so the core of an issue is exposed, clarity is achieved, and a forward path is charged.

World-Class Facilitators Make a World of Difference
