resolving business conundrums with other enlightened ceos.
Your De Facto board
We know that as a leader your time and money are especially precious to you, so we don't waste either. In fact, most of our members experience a minimum 20:1 ROI. When you hold board meetings in the shower, business conundrums tend to fester. That's why we created and lead CEO Roundtables whose participants struggle with similar issues. Non-competitive CEOs spend time working through conundrums in a confidential arena and tackle an array of different issues, challenges and problems.
We also schedule expert speakers, networking events, and philanthropic and pure fun events as the members desire them. Where else can you truly be yourself and also get what you need as a leader?
Check out the tools we employ
to address your conundrums.
Who are your A-players and how can you keep them performing at peak levels? All business boils down to your leaders leading effectively. Unbiased and agnostic, we can help any CEO assess his/her team.
Blind spots can cause untold pain to a business, especially if they exist in the corner office. With fresh perspectives, we'll look at your approach and smooth out your game plan.
Knowing where you're going is a critical predicate to achieving your goals. For most CEOs, this is the number one priority. We'll help you define your roadmap, communicate it to your team, and monitor its execution.
Some are born leaders, other CEOs need guidance along the way. We work with CEOs to ensure they have the right skills in the right positions to scale profitably.
You won't live or work forever, so it's smart to plan for when you're not around. To whom will you pass the reins, what must they master before you're gone, and who can you pull from the bench...these and other questions are essential to answer.
Many CEOs think they have a great product or service but wonder why their sales aren't better. Often, it comes down to making sure the right people are in the right positions doing the right things.
Innovate or die has been a core mantra for many decades, yet many CEOs continue to give it little attention. We will help you establish a clear, repeatable innovation system.
When a group facilitator has no direct skin in the game (like us), politics goes out the window. The result: honest brokerage and solicitation of ideas and priorities without fear of retribution.
When two or more people work together, conflict is natural. The goal is not avoiding conflict but finding productive ways to harness it and resolve it for the benefit of the company.
When organizational goals are aligned with personal goals, companies tend to perform better. Why? Because there's a direct relationship between business objectives and personal financial achievement.
At the forefront of every business combination are issues of leadership, culture and integration. Done well, the merged companies can thrive; done poorly, they will fester sadly.
Professionals spend inordinate amounts of time infused in their company's culture. How supportive it is and how attractive it is to outsiders can have a huge impact on business results.

"When you're the head of an organization, it can get lonely. As a member of a CEO Roundtable, I am able to connect with others facing similar 'conundrums' related to growth, staff, culture, and a slew of other very important issues. The added perspective is very helpful as I manage my business."

"I would recommend the CEO Roundtable to any business owner who is looking to work on the business and take it to the next level."
