Let's face it, part of the reason CEOs and entrepreneurs are successful is due to their independent nature and being part of a group seems almost counterintuitive. Whether you are at $5m or $50m, chances are the thinking, people and resources that got you to where you are, will not get you to where you are going. If you are solving the same problems repeatedly, you are working harder not smarter. The members of my Vistage CEO peer group hold one another accountable to hire right the first time, come up with viable strategies for growth, and to have work life balance. We achieve together what would be impossible to alone. Take a look at the attached list, these are some of the core problems our CEO members tackle so our they can grow, rather than spend their time putting out the same fires.
