The Benefits of CEO Peer Groups

CEO Peer Groups are forums for non-competing CEOs to come together, network, strategise and workshop solutions to business issues. This is an arena for leadership skills training and leadership development coaching. The unique bond and trusting relationship that members develop within their groups allows them to engage in candid conversations about business issues, life balance concerns and more. This singular focus on the member’s specific issues results in unequalled opportunities for professional growth and greater peace of mind. According to CEO consultant Melissa Raffoni:

Well-Managed CEO Peer Groups Promote:

  • Clarity of vision, strategic direction and focus in decision-making
  • Assurance and peace of mind that CEOs are making the right decisions for their company, staff, customers and investors
  • A disciplined and effective methodology for ‘working on’ the business even during the global downturn
  • A forum within which smart, strategic and thoughtful business leaders can leverage their combined intelligence to share lessons learned and insights gained that help companies to be more creative in pursuing growth or new business models
  • The up-skilling of CEOs by exposing them to numerous real life business cases of other companies that share similar issues, which would allow them to connect the dots to their own situation

Nine year group member and now Chair of his own group TEC 31, Graham Jenkins, said that the reason he joined was because “one of the things that you notice when you run a business is that you can’t share business secrets with people so easily. You feel isolation as CEO.”

He says that a CEO Peer group allowed him to feel confident he was making the best decisions he possibly could. “Discussing your issues with others gives you the confidence to make decisions quicker and gives your business momentum.” CEO peer groups act as a leadership coach and business mentoring collaborative 'think tank'.

Who better for a CEO to consult on issues currently concerning business than a group of non-competing peers who have literally ‘been there and done that’ in countless similar situations? Executive peers are able to approach business issues with a problem solving, commonsensical mindset –– a direct result of years of real world industry experience.  Knowledge and practical understanding is shared between members in order to achieve better business results for each member.
