Bob Dabic, Vistage Master Chair from Newport Coast, California, asks: “Why should we replace ‘yes people’ in our lives with those who care enough to hold us accountable to achieving our goals?”

In this interactive presentation, Dabic assists members and guests in brainstorming a list of issues that exist in their companies. Key issues typically revolve around the areas of: Customer Dissatisfaction, Marketing/Sales/Operations, and Net Profit Growth. Bob defines what Vision, Mission, Values, Goals & Objectives are and encourages attendees to share which of these currently exist in their companies. He then proceeds to show how plans, goals, objectives, people, procedures, decisions and behaviors can be aligned with the so-called “Big Picture.” Members and their guests are provided with a step-by-step process to bring positive results to their organizations!!

I grew up in Carlsbad, north San Diego County, lost my dad as a teenager, went into the USAF for four years and hired on with 3M in 1969. Received my AA from Santa Barbara City College, BA and Masters from Redlands University and after 33 plus years, I retired from 3M in 2002. As I look back on my life, I have been creating myself and developing my skill sets to be a business coach and a Vistage Chair. I am president of SEOT, a "personal improvement" consulting firm spending most of my time working with Central Texas executives running small to medium size for-profit companies who are focusing on improving their profitability greater than their competition. My area of interest is assisting senior executives in creating a better balance between business commitments and personal relationships. I also facilatate three leadership labs each consisting of a dozen owners, presidents and CEOs. We meet monthly both in a group setting as well as in a 1-to-1 coaching session. Our focus is to sharpen each others' skills in becoming better leaders, making better decisions and taking ourselves and companies to that next level. Who are we? My members are experienced top executives who recognize that they don’t have all the answers and who actively seek the company of successful peers—both to give and receive insights and ideas. My members mine the 200 plus years of chief executive experience that comes together in our monthly meetings and members are eager to offer their own experience and insights in the process. As a group, we spend our time exploring topics members can't discuss anywhere else. My members have many other places where they can engage in idle, "cocktail party" chatter. Our mission is to provide the setting for discussing the "undiscussable." Where or who can you go to for confidential, honest feedback to assist you in minimizing your personal "Worry List"?
