If you are interested or just curious in knowing more about joining a Peer Advisory Group in Austin, Texas please email or text me at 512.422.6232.

Is a Peer Advisory Group right for you today?

In Austin today, we have 7 Chairs serving just under 200 members in 16 groups.

Are you on a cone of a rocket, has your confidence been shaken, or after the past 24 months are you realizing your current executive coaching and personal development resources could use some help?

Do you have rising stars that need additional outside development and/or want to bring outside expert content into your leadership team? Our new LDPs (Leadership Development Programs) are helping dozens of Austin companies, let us assist you, too.

CEOs choose Vistage for support, vision, and performance

We know from our own extensive research that highly intentional CEOs are compelled to join Vistage for three main reasons:

  • They feel alone and isolated.
  • They are having trouble getting out of the day-to-day weeds and thinking strategically.
  • They want to keep performing andd growing yet are worried that they may fall behind.

We are not for everyone…my 10 disqualifiers are:

  1. If you are not in control of your calendar, a seat on our table might not be right for you.
  2. If you have a thin skin and don’t want anyone questioning your assumptions (or calling “bull shit” on you), this might not be right for you. (Word “care-frontational”) 
  3. If you believe you might be the smartest person in the room, this might not be right for you.
  4. If you don’t actively read, this might not be right for you. 
  5. If you are not interested in growing, both in business and in life, this might not be right for you.
  6. If you are seeking to network or use the board as a prospecting pool this is definitely not right for you.
  7. If you cannot commit to total confidentiality this is definitely not right for you.
  8. If you are a life style business and wish to stay that way, this is definitely not right for you.
  9. If you have a bunch of awards, medals, diplomas and certificates of accomplishment (we all do) and can’t wait to tell everyone all about you, this might not be right for you. 
  10. If you don’t consider yourself intellectually curious, this might not be right for you.

If you are still interested then let’s schedule up to a 30 minute phone conversation and see if we are a good fit for you and if you are a good fit for one of our Austin CEO/business leader peer groups.
