PEER ADVISORY GROUPS

Your business is unique and you deserve unique insight and support.

There are many wonderful things that come with being a business owner, but the role also includes a few caveats, such as feeling like you can’t properly share the challenges you encounter as an entrepreneur with your friends, family or team members who work for you. However, it doesn’t have to be lonely at the top.

What is a
Peer Advisory Group?

imageedit_8_3282895055.png

A peer advisory group is made up of business owners, leaders, and executives who are dedicated to making their businesses better by increasing performance, lowing expenses, raising margin, improving their people, providing better products and services than their competition.

 

 These leaders understand they don't know everything and they recognize the value of having another business owner or leader ask the tough questions to help them get better.  The leaders that sit around these tables know that the isolation of being at the top is real and you need people who have the same dedication to excellence they do.  

 

Running a business is hard work. Join a group of people who understand that and will help you succeed.

Business & Leadership
Cooperative

Leading a company can be lonely. You are the “point of the spear” and your team and your company are relying on you to have a handle on every aspect of the business.   

 

By teaming with other leaders, you are not alone, you are connected, and you can learn from the successes and failures of other leaders to speed up your learning curve to better serve your customers, lead your team, and increase profitability. 

 

The business and leadership cooperative is an invitation-only peer advisory group made up of entrepreneurs and business leaders from different industries and companies.  These men and women, led by an experienced business coach, gather quarterly to learn from each other, challenge each other, and encourage each other in business and life.  Each member meets 1-on-1 with the Business Coach that directs and facilitates the team to talk about and work on their individual company and them as an individual leader.

What do I need to know before joining?

  • Cooperative membership is by invitation-only from the business coach who leads and facilitates the group.

  • Members sign a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement to keep the information for the group in the group. The confidentiality allows the group to discuss in detail the opportunities and challenges that the members need to get feedback on.

  • Members are limited to one company in a particular industry or geography to make sure that members are not disclosing proprietary information to a competitor.

  • Members are expected to be active in their business and oriented toward growth.  Ideal members are company leaders who are growing and looking to grow their businesses.
