What does a Vistage CEO coach do?

As a Vistage CEO coach (known as a Chair), you’ll first build a private advisory board of 12-16 high-caliber business leaders from non-competing industries.

With your board in place, you become its executive Chair. Every month you’ll gather members for candid, confidential roundtable discussion of their most pressing business issues. In these meetings you will:

  • Stimulate critical thinking as you frame issues to inspire impactful discussions
  • Facilitate collaboration to help members map out plans of action
  • Become an agent of influence to help members push their businesses forward
  • Answer questions—and question answers—to motivate high-impact decisions

You’ll meet one-on-one with each board member every month to provide guidance tailored to their unique challenges—establishing the kind of rapport that builds a strong foundation for trust and growth.

Critical to your role as an executive Chair will be connecting your members to the right resources, tools and experts available to them as members of Vistage—to inform their most important leadership decisions.

The impact | Member’s perspective:“It’s hard for a CEO to find someone they’re accountable to – there’s really nobody else who will challenge our decisions or complain about our organizational skills.”

CEO – Conditioned Air, Naples, FL
Member since 2001
