Since 1957, Vistage has been bringing together successful CEOs, executives and business owners into private advisory groups. Each group is purpose-built to help members help each other improve the performance and outcomes of their businesses.
In our group, about a dozen executives (like you) meet once a month to solve problems, evaluate opportunities and work on an assortment of strategic and operational issues.
Put twelve or so high performing business executives in a room and the potential is enormous. The role of a Vistage Chair is to endure that every bit of that experience and wisdom is applied in a Vistage meeting.
Chairs are accomplished leaders (many are former CEOs). They are part facilitator, part coach and totally committed to the success of group members. They help stimulate thinking, frame issues, guide discussions, limit tangents and ensure accountability in the group.
Most Chairs take on the role with the express purpose of helping others build great (or greater) businesses.
