The benefits of participating in a Strategic Business Leader™ Group include strategic focus, professional counsel and personal support.
Strategic Business Leader™ Groups, unlike other business peer groups, are grounded in the Association for Strategic Planning's body of knowledge developed for the Strategic Management Professional certification. The group facilitator keeps peer group discussions focused on strategic thinking, planning and action for greatest professional and organizational benefit. Expert presentations address high-level strategic management topics and how to gain from the knowledge. One-on-one consultations build strategic management skills and help members drive strategic thinking, planning and action - effective implementation of strategies - in their organizations.
Each Strategic Business Leader™ Group facilitator is an expert, experienced strategy consultant. The facilitator keeps group discussions and presentations focused on strategic concepts, processes, issues and opportunities for greatest group benefit. And in the quarterly one-on-one half-day strategy consultations, the facilitator works with the member to capitalize on peer group guidance, set and act on professional and organization goals, and drive strategic thinking, planning and action - consistent, effective implementation - in the organization.
A Strategic Business Leader™ Group is an unparalleled personal advisory board for its members. The group gives members honest, confidential peer support and unbiased feedback and counsel. The peer group and the counselor provide on-going outlets and inputs that leaders otherwise can't access through staff, boards and industry groups. The value of this personal support grows as group members develop deeper understanding and more insight into one another.
