When you own or run a business, even the simplest decisions can have profound implications.
Vistage members find that the peer advisory and leadership development training they get out of their group has a profound effect on their growth as a leader. Not surprisingly, our members soon discover that their companies also experience significant growth as a direct result of the executive leadership coaching provided by their Vistage group.
In fact, our executive member companies have significantly outperformed non-member companies year after year. With regards to the compounded annual growth rate of the average D&B U.S. company from 2007 to 2012; our members saw an 11.6 percent increase in revenues, compared to the U.S. average of 5.4 percent. The numbers prove what our members already know: Vistage works.
Vistage works because in every group and in every meeting, no topic is off-limits. If you are willing to talk candidly about the tough decisions you face, fellow members will rally around you, listen, ask tough questions and bring to bear every resource they have to help you grow as a leader and improve the workings of your business. When our members have access to new perspectives – whether from fellow business peers, an outside facilitator, or expert resource speakers – they expand their view beyond their company walls in a way that traditional executive leadership training just can't offer.
Members report that our leadership development initiatives help them grow, learn, and find new ways to apply their newfound knowledge to their businesses. Vistage private advisory boards enable business leaders to leverage the wisdom and experience of their peers, the guidance of an expert leadership coach – called a Vistage Chair – and the collective knowledge of the worldwide Vistage community.
