We all need a group of Peers to challenge us.

People’s lives are a direct reflection of their Peer Group.
Tony Robbins

Here is a letter Marc sent to his Vistage Group in March 2020 as an example of some of the value provided.
Many business owners, regardless of the size of their companies, experience the following issues:

  • It is lonely at the top, and you have no one to talk to.
  • Everyone who provides you advice has an agenda.
  • You want people to hold you accountable, but who understand what a leader being is like.
  • You want to benefit from others’ experiences, so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
  • You want the Honest, Hard Truth about your plans, strategies, and actions.
  • You believe you have to cut your own path even though it is inefficient because relying on others diminishes your success.

Join a group of Business Leaders who are experiencing what you do and will help you only if you help them.

I have been fortunate to have Marc as a Vistage Chair and coach over the last several years.  Through Marc’s broad business experience and objective view of my law firm’s practice, he helped us identify specific areas that increase our value to our clients and to our firm, and provided invaluable insights into tactics to make us more efficient and productive.  As a coach, Marc goes beyond just making suggestions to make our business better.  Marc utilizes a variety of tools, technology, and exercises that have helped us define our mission and strategy, and which provide a game plan to make us successful.  Through our work together, I greatly value Marc as a trusted friend and an advisor vested in our success.

Marc approached us and said you know why you and your team don’t do your pitch to the group and we’ll get your feedback. I jumped at the opportunity. It was horrible and we ended with great feedback. With that feedback, we ended up winning the contract, and a lot of that I have to thank Vistage for.

CEO, Level Seven Facilities Management

The ROI on my Vistage investment has been significant. I greatly value the ongoing business learnings, speaker content, and group camaraderie. But where I’ve benefitted the most financially is the result of the deep knowledge and broad networks of my Vistage Chair and fellow members. In two instances, I was facing an unanticipated crisis (an internet hack and a legal challenge) and the connections through my group saved me from significant losses of money and time. Without my Vistage network, I would have been Googling to find support providers. Instead, I had the benefit of pre-vetted professional support within a 24-hour timeframe in situations where a quick response was essential.

During a crisis, a Peer Advisory group is essential to help CEOs and Business Owners by challenging their thinking and assumptions; force them to accept what was happening and look for new opportunities; push them and hold them accountable for commitments; make them realize what they are doing is ineffective; challenge them about their concepts of the future and the status quo; and make them express my vision and strategy.

During a Crisis, You Need A Different Board

During a crisis, your board requires different skills and abilities. First, the board must not be dysfunctional. Then does your board have what it takes? Whatever the reason, a crisis creates moments of truth for an organization and often is existence. A crisis is the ultimate test of resilience for any institution, its board, and its top executives. Senior executives and directors have exposure to continuous external scrutiny from the media, the legal profession, regulators, and other stakeholders for months or even years during and after a crisis.
