When When I first became CEO, I joined the Chief Executives Guild and have continually received exceptional value for the time and money invested. My MasterMind Board and coach have helped me build my confidence and leadership competence in so many areas. CEG keeps me focused on the big picture and I know I always have somewhere to go for experienced advice when tackling the tough issues that I face as the top decision maker.

Nobody outside the CEO role gets the complex­ities of what we deal with – everyone in the Chief Executives Guild gets it and thanks to the members of my Master-Mind board and coach I’m able to tackle the bigger challenges quicker and more effectively. My MasterMind Board is a brain trust of CEO advisors who are totally dedicated to each other’s success.

My MasterMind Board is a think tank of chief executives who are totally dedicated to each other’s success. Together we’ve untangled some pretty knotty problems, and it makes such a difference to have a group of people you trust, like and respect looking out for you.

—Rakesh Sridharan, President, LED Lenser

Despite having every second of my life booked, I took a big chance and joined the Chief Executives Guild. The members of my MasterMind Board were the leaders of family-owned midmarket companies including Dave’s Killer Breads, LED Lensor, Biamp Systems, etc. Working with them and my coach, I was able to make new, inno­vative strategic changes a major success and exceed rev­enue expectations. This is one of several reasons why I find my MasterMind Board so valuable, worth the time I spend with them, and why I strongly recommend the Chief Executives Guild to my peers.

—Wendy Collie, CEO, New Seasons Markets

I've been participating in my MasterMind Board and coaching for over a year and find both to be extremely valuable. The candid dialogue with peers has provided me insights and ideas that have helped me better tackle the tough issues I face as a CEO of a growing company.

Chief Executive Guild meetings are invaluable; the peer conversations are strategic and substantive, and I always gain an important insight or a usable approach to effectively deal with a problem I need to address.
