Unlike some other executive support groups, CEO Think® Tank is not a self-facilitated forum. We understand how challenging it can be to put a group of successful and driven CEOs in a room. To make sure the group stays on track and gets value from every meeting, each executive roundtable is led by a well-trained, experienced facilitator with a significant business background. The facilitator steers the group discussion and interaction in the right direction to maximize impact. Your job is to show up, raise questions, and participate in discussions.
We are truly the “general practitioner” for small and mid-market businesses. Our Think Tank® advisors will make sure that you have a plan, that you stay focused and accountable to your commitments thereby ensuring your own success. These one-on-one meetings are customized for your individual leadership development and business needs and is designed to get you asking questions of yourself, your businesses and get the right coaching on different areas, including:
Membership in CEO Think Tank™ gives CEO’s and their teams full access to all Gazelles International Growth Tools™ and Growth Videos (library of over 100 Business Thought Leaders) as well as CEO Think Tank™ library of business tools and resources for “Scaling Up”. Creation of a One Page Plan™ and ongoing support for the plan’s implementation is also a part of our Members’ first year.
Not only are we invested in your personal and professional growth as CEO, we are also want to help drive the growth of your company. That means that we want to see your team grow and succeed as well. We are the only Executive roundtable program that encourages you to bring members of your leadership team to our Quarterly speakers meetings for free where we invite experts to talk on a variety of topics. We also conduct two Learning Events each year which are also included in your membership fee on relevant business subjects ranging from Driving Strategic Innovation to the Seven Stages of Business Growth to Managing Your Salary Cap.
Our CEO Think Tank® members and their leadership teams are encouraged to attend Quarterly Learning events free of charge. Some past topics include:
Each year we conduct a 1 ½ day annual retreat which gives our members time to do a “mid-year” review as well as take some personal reflection time for themselves. Just like a championship football team wouldn’t squander their half-time huddle, we also want to take a step back, learn from the first half of the year and set ourselves up for success in the second half by taking some “think time”, exposing ourselves to new tools and thought-leaders and having a chance to just deepen our relationships with each other.
