CEO Collective / peer group

Process-Driven CEO Peer Groups that Tackle Your Challenges and Challenge Your Assumptions

Our CEO Collective peer groups are focused on getting you to where you want to be - the next level. The invitation to join is only extended to CEOs who are growing their businesses and are eager to learn and grow themselves. Members show up and bring their full selves to the table.

When you are a part of a CEO Collective peer group, you are surrounded by people who truly understand the challenges you are facing and are willing to share from their experience. With direct feedback from your peers on key issues your business is facing, you can make decisions more rapidly and thoughtfully.

Our meetings are tightly run and follow a case review process ensuring members have a forum to get candid and thoughtful feedback from their peers.

Some of the tough questions our members bring to the table in cases include:

  • How do I know where to invest and where to pull back?
  • Do I have the right business model, processes and organizational structure to effectively grow the business?
  • When and how should I successfully address complex people issues?
  • What is the right sales strategy? M&A strategy? Financing strategy?

What sets the CEO Collective apart?

While there are many factors that make us unique and highly effective, here are the top 7 things that set us apart from the others...

  1. Meeting attendance is not optional, and preparation is required
  2. Our 1:1 support sessions with a Strategic Facilitator help members prep for meetings
  3. Our structured methodology and tools, refined by input from CEOs over the course of 20 years, are proven to drive results
  4. Our meetings are high-impact because they are structured with cases and feedback--no guest speakers or open discussions
  5. Our Strategic Facilitators are seasoned executives. All CEO peer groups are run by former CEOs and every facilitator is  certified and committed to consistent program quality and driving results
  6. We prioritize in-person interactions 
  7. We offer access to our full network of CEOs through an annual CEO Retreat, an online member-only app, and regular all network online events
"You get direct, candid, actionable feedback from 8-10 CEOs. I can go back to my leadership team and give a different viewpoint that we can leverage in our organization to help efficiency and most importantly, growth."
