Making a habit of getting unbiased counsel on your most important business decisions triples your company’s growth rate.
As leaders, we often feel trapped in own businesses. Instead of working ON the business, we get stuck working IN the business. I’m also sure your management team and advisors serve you well but very often don’t have the experience or perspective to provide the advice and counsel you need as a CEO. In fact, such people are rarely found within your enterprise.
Companies don’t go beyond the boundaries set by the CEO. Growing CEOs (leading from the head down) move the boundaries. They push outside their comfort zone from a position of strength.
So where do you go to get unbiased advice?
Backed by Vistage Worldwide, I lead private advisory boards for chief executives, presidents and business owners. Non-competing peers help you step out of the day-to-day and think differently, make better decisions, take bold action and generate meaningful results. The upshot? Vistage members experience new levels of intention, freedom, power, creativity and fulfillment. When you are firing on all these cylinders, you earn back the luxury of time, our most precious commodity.
The power of Vistage is in the layered experience and built-in accountability: thoughtful, honest feedback from leaders like you + dedicated one-to-one advisement + expert-led workshops.
I bring some distinct experience to the table. My business career focused on commercializing the Internet as a business developer, executive, founder and owner. My background cuts across e-commerce, digital music, interoperable communications, social media marketing and law. I view the world from the digital native’s perspective. Underpinning all of this? Leadership in the trenches and a deep passion for guiding leaders to achieve more than they ever imagined possible. My calling:
I am called to influence the few that influence the many. I’m an eye-level, ripple maker. The few turn those ripples into tsunamis of positive change. It’s not about me. It’s about the CEO board that I facilitate. This guided process forges a powerful peer advantage for the 16 appointed CEOs.
I’m currently looking for one or two new members to join my board of CEOs, presidents and business owners in the Seattle area. If you are looking to become a better leader and grow your business in the process, let’s see if we’re a fit for each other.
