Find a group built for you
We’ll match you with a peer group and executive coach (Chair) best suited to help you solve your business challenges and hone your leadership, including:
Chief executives: Find a forum of other seasoned CEOs, presidents and business owners who can help you focus on elements most critical to your long-term strategy and growth.
Small business leaders: Discover the most effective sounding board for your toughest decisions. As a small business owner, you may be so busy with urgent matters that you neglect the strategic decisions that drive long-term growth.
Key executives: Join an elite peer group of high-performing C-level execs, VPs and directors from diverse backgrounds and businesses. Improve your ability to gain alignment between executive leadership and your team.
Q: When I meet the criteria for a Vistage membership, how will it help me improve as a leader and grow my business?
A: The Vistage platform helps leaders make better decisions through a combination of exclusive peer groups, personal mentoring, world-class speakers, proprietary research and a worldwide network of 23,000+ executives and business owners. Our approach works: Vistage member companies grow 2.2x faster than their competition.
Q: What are my next steps in preparation for a membership?
A: A regional consultant will contact you within two business days to determine whether Vistage is a good fit by asking about your business challenges and personal goals, as well as providing you with more details about our benefits. They will then pair you with a local Chair who is focused on your success. We will match you based on goals, revenue size, industry and common challenges.
Q: What happens when I am paired with a local Chair?
A: When we find the best fit for your needs, you’ll attend a Vistage meeting with that Chair and group, meet its members, and process an issue related to your business to experience how our program works. If you find value in this opportunity, you will then join a group and get access to all the benefits we have to offer.
Q: If I don’t qualify, what else can Vistage offer me?
A: The Vistage Research Center regularly publishes free content and hosts live webinars from leading economists and experts in all areas of business. Vistage is also actively searching for new Chairs (coaches), expert speakers, and event sponsors. If you think these opportunities better align with your business needs, we encourage you to apply.
