When I want to clear my head, I go skiing. There is something relaxing about “falling” down the mountain; the more I can let go of rigidity and control, the more elegant the process. Leadership is a lot like skiing. Having founded and grown several companies over the course of my career, one of which I took from infancy to being publicly held, I have worked through the challenging decisions company leaders face. I have made the mistakes, and eventually realized that growing as a leader meant learning to be independent of my rigid thought patterns; I needed to purposely disrupt my leadership skills. I needed to “fall” down the mountain.
I’ve worked in isolation, with partners and with the help
and support of an advisory board. I became the strongest leader once I
discovered the power of trusted and unbiased input from knowledgeable peers. As
a Vistage CEO Advisory Board Chair, I am dedicated to the creation of inspired
leaders, inspired results, and inspired lives. I offer decades of experience,
both as a company founder and as a business consultant and CEO advisor. I bring
a deep understanding of how leaders get in their own way and how they can best
create success for themselves. I have a profound commitment to listen; to
hearing what is being said as well as sensing what is not being verbalized. I
am dedicated to my own learning and to facilitating the learning of others.
As a Vistage Chair, I have a powerful platform to support
CEOs, and provide leadership training, advise businesses and facilitate peer collaboration.
My CEO Peer Advisory Board is focused on helping its members increase their
capacity to create the results they want. If you are willing to seek the
support of talented peers, interested in contributing to the success of others
and disciplined in your commitment to learn and participate, please contact me
to discuss how my group might be a good fit for you, firstname.lastname@example.org.
