Chief Executive Program

For your most critical decisions.

There’s a lot riding on your decisions. The Vistage Chief Executive Program is designed to help you make more effective decisions that lead to powerful results. At the core, a confidential advisory group of peers helps you focus on what’s most critical. Led by an accomplished business leader, this unbiased group will help you solve problems and uncover opportunities.

Designed for the challenges of chief executives.


You don’t have the right people to run ideas by or troubleshoot with. Other stakeholders and colleagues may have competing agendas and you can’t seem to get clean, clear, unbiased advice.


The Vistage CE peer advisory group is made up of 12-18 other local business leaders from non-competing industries. Many of them have stood where you’re standing now, providing you with invaluable insight, knowledge, feedback—and 100% confidentiality. Their only agenda is to help each other succeed.


You want to improve your current workplace culture and your ability to keep and attract top talent.


Learn best practices on building an empowered, engaged, results-driven team. Find and fix blind spots to advance your leadership ability and workplace culture.


You want to grow your business in smart strategic ways, but aren’t sure you have the right processes in place for optimum results.


Access models of success, diverse perspectives and expert advice for thoughtfully planning your long-term strategy without sacrificing current business performance.

There are so many things you can take away from your Vistage experience that would take you an MBA or a PhD to get. But you get them, not in the context of a classroom, but in the context of real business people talking about having actually lived through this crisis or that situation.
