Peer Advisory Groups (PAGs)


Harness Collective Wisdom

Productive Group Dynamics

Structured Process

Imagine having a vehicle for working collaboratively with a select group of CEOs, Presidents, COOs, GMs, and other Key Executives from both publicly-owned and privately-held business organizations, in a focused effort to address and resolve common strategic and operational issues and opportunities. These collaborative sessions include marketing and sales strategies, sourcing capital, and seeking and acquiring the necessary key executives and personnel assets required for growth.

The members of the Peer Advisory Group, under the guidance of a Facilitator, work to create a productive group dynamic in which business owners and leaders/key executives come together to collaboratively and creatively identify, address and overcome roadblocks … barriers … to the successful achievement of their strategic plans. A high-performing PAG provides its' members with a proven methodology that will address and overcome the tunnel vision syndrome (paradigm paralysis).

The members of a Peer Advisory Group and the Facilitator-Coach create a collaborative group of 8-10 leaders, and in some applications, up to 16 PAG members. The rule of confidentiality is essential to create a "Vessel of Trust" in order for the members of the group to open up and share their weaknesses and developmental needs. Participants formally define their Charter Statement, Mission, Expected Outcomes, Operating Guidelines, Code of Conduct. Meeting schedules are set to maximize flexibility.
