Better Decisions Fuel Success

Helping business leaders to achieve more and build their professional and personal success is what brings lasting significance to my own career. Changing the way leaders guide their companies and make decisions affects an entire community, including the lives of employees and their families. Better decisions drive better results and more productive and successful businesses.

As leaders gain balance and perspective, they become more engaged in the community and the whole region can benefit.

Throughout a professional career of business leadership and executive coaching, I’ve gained wisdom from many sources and experiences. Always receptive to new ideas and seeking improvement, I have refined my business practices over the years and apply advice I share with others.

Most recently, I’ve chosen to align the RoundTable Consulting business coaching practice with the widely known and highly respected Vistage organization.

This was not a difficult decision to make. Instead, it was a natural fit that allows me to continue to enhance my own skills and abilities while offering a wider and deeper array of resources to the clients who work with me.


Why Vistage?

Proven structure
Vistage has a longstanding record of success through confidential peer advisory groups–a structure that I have used successfully for a long time. For more than 65 years the formula of drawing CEOs into an environment away from their daily responsibilities, where they can focus exclusively on their business, has succeeded, building companies that have outperformed their competition. Since its founding in 1957, more than 100,000 CEOs have participated in Vistage groups; today there are more than 45,000 active members in 35 countries.

Advanced resources
Proprietary research, an extensive body of thought leadership content, and access to a community of more than 1000 speakers and workshop leaders support Vistage peer groups. By introducing Vistage to our community, I can now offer my clients access to an even richer pool of resources.

Record of success
The success of Vistage members is measurable. A comparison of the growth of member companies to those of similar size through D&B shows that member companies on average grew 2.2 times faster. That record of CEO performance can be attributed to the effectiveness of the methods and to the inherently high performing characteristics of the membership.

Relationships that refine Connecting leaders from a variety of non-competing industries creates the environment for innovation and fresh ideas to flourish; collaboration in this setting is multiplied in effectiveness. Accountability is an important aspect of the groups. It produces results and motivates participants to follow through, while confidentiality establishes a safe place that breaks down the isolation CEOs so often experience.


Why RoundTable Consulting?

The Chairs selected by Vistage to conduct CEO Peer Groups are hand-picked. Becoming a Chair means joining an elite group of seasoned business leaders, highly qualified in leading businesses. Among other required qualifications to become a Vistage Chair, a leader must have achieved personal success as a CEO, business owner or senior executive and weathered the challenges of having full responsibility for an organization.

As a Chair, I bring the accumulated wisdom of a long career as a business owner as well as experience gained throughout a career in business consulting. My perspective in championing organizational health adds another unique dimension to my leadership style.

Mentoring, guiding, and facilitating to maximize the skills and leadership of CEOs and others is what provides purpose for my work. When the lives and performance of leaders are changed, whole communities can change–colleagues, staff, customers, suppliers, and more. Gaining the ability to make better, stronger, and faster decisions builds confidence and effectiveness that flows into other areas of life.

Executive Coaching

A coach cultivates and enhances the skills and talent you already possess. Not so much a teacher, but more of an outside objective listener and truth-teller, the coach holds up a mirror so that you can see and improve your behavior and interactions and level up your leadership.

You may choose to work with an executive coach for a variety of reasons. Many chief officers find that the need to enhance their skills at conflict resolution is a key factor in the coaching decision. Increased confidence, improved self-awareness as an individual and in their role, and better interpersonal skills are other frequently cited reasons to begin an engagement.
