James is the Principal of CEO Focus of the Triangle, serving the Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill markets.
CEO Focus is a peer consulting group of company presidents and CEOs. In our CEO group meetings, we work on business issues confronting our members. Groups meet once per month. Groups consist of 8-14 members from various industries and backgrounds. Although the benefits of group membership can be difficult to quantify, many members find benefits in:
- Increased accountability
- Business owners with similar backgrounds to bounce ideas off of
- A strong support network
- Access to professionals with complementary strengths
- Improved delegation skills
- Higher quality of living
- Increased profitability
- Business coaching input
- Improved level of business expertise
It’s lonely at the top. However, that does not mean you have to go it alone. Owning a business automatically enrolls you in the School of Hard Knocks. Perhaps it’s time to drop out of the School of Hard Knocks and learn valuable lessons from your fellow CEOs? Although you may feel your problems are unique to your business, there are many other CEOs with similar issues. To assist CEOs and company owners with the difficulties of running a business, our CEO groups provide a forum for owners to discuss key business issues.
