Vistage is the world’s largest CEO coaching and peer advisory organization for small and midsize businesses. Since 1957, Vistage has been bringing together high-integrity CEOs, executives and business owners into private advisory boards. Each board is purpose-built to help members help each other improve the strategy, performance and outcomes of their businesses. Today, more than 23,000 members in 20 countries rely on Vistage. In Colorado, Vistage has been working with leaders since 1989 and there are currently about 500 participating executives in the Front Range.
High-performing CEOs who join Vistage get a life-long leadership experience that delivers results both personally and professionally. It’s where leaders get the perspective, clarity and support to make the decisions that will make a difference.
Put 12 or so high-performing business executives in a room and the potential is enormous. The role of a Vistage Chair is to ensure 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.
