Championing entrepreneurship and land stewardship

CEO roundtables that use the PeerSpectives methodology provides a confidential environment for participants to discuss sensitive issues — in their business and personal lives. Roundtable participants say they receive ideas on everything from marketing strategy and financial issues to dealing with difficult personnel problems. The roundtables also create accountability for oneself and strong bonds among group members.

Although PeerSpectives can be offered as a standalone program, licensees may also combine roundtables with System for Integrated Growth (SIG) and leader retreats. Participants credit roundtables for enhancing their SIG engagement by hearing how others make use of their deliverables. And leader retreats give entrepreneurs insights about their leadership skills.

In addition to being used for second-stage entrepreneurs, the PeerSpectives process has worked well for managers within second-stage businesses, owners of smaller growth-oriented companies and nonprofit executives.
