Strategic Business Leader™ Groups deliver success through strategic management, trusted peers for support, and professional and personal growth.
Success from strategic management.
The Strategic Business Leader™ Groupconcept emerged from a search for how best to help leaders and their organizations get the major benefits of strategic thinking, planning and action - more robust organizations, organizations that produce greater benefits, financial and otherwise, and organizations that deliver higher value to stakeholders. This search identified peer group guidance, subject matter expert input and professional strategic counsel as the most effective ways to ground leaders in strategic management and help them drive strategic thinking, planning and action in their organizations. The groups are designed to deliver the benefits of a strategy focus.
Trusted peers for guidance and support.
The members of a Strategic Business Leader™ Group are non-competitive peers, with the shared perspective of organizational leadership but each bringing individual knowledge and experience. The group agrees that meetings are confidential and members pledge to give honest, straight-forward and helpful guidance to one another. The facilitator makes sure the group delivers the promised strategic guidance and support and helps members make the most of group involvement over time.
Professional and personal growth.
Strategic Business Leader™ Group members are exposed to the latest management and strategic thinking through interchange with subject matter experts and the facilitator's use of the Association for Strategic Planning's body of knowledge in framing and guiding peer group sessions and one-on-one consultations. In addition, peers help members identify and resolve professional and personal issues that members bring to the table. In short, over time members become better strategic managers and progress professionally and personally.
