Best Practices Boards

Peer Advisory Groups for Successful Business Leaders

Key Components of the Best Practices Boards Program

The Best Practices Boards program is built around groups of business owners who meet one morning or afternoon each month (10 months a year). Each meeting includes:

•  A ‘Best Practices’ discussion on a pre-selected topic
•  In-depth ‘Board Reports’ from selected group members
•  Brief ‘State of the Business’ updates from each group member

The Best Practices Boards program also hosts meetings for all Best Practices members, featuring a noteworthy guest speaker on a relevant ‘Best Practices’ topic. These occasional get-togethers provide for more informal interaction between group members, and allow them to expand their network beyond the membership of their individual peer group.

The Benefits of Participation

Depth of Experience: Best Practices Boards are composed of other business owners just like you. In fact, a typical board can bring together between 100-200 years of actual business experience. That means that the ideas shared during our meetings are “battle-tested,” and come from first-hand experience.

Best Practices: Best Practices Boards typically include business owners from industries that are totally unrelated to yours. That diversity of experience exposes you to best practices from other industries, offering access to a greater pool of ideas.

Learn from Others: The most valuable insights that Best Practices members gain from their participation often come from the problems of other participants. Members working to solve another member’s issue will often see a similar problem that they are experiencing from a completely new perspective.

Accountability: While business owners can hold others accountable for results, there’s usually no one to hold them accountable. Best Practices Board meetings can help you to focus and take action on difficult business issues.

An Environment of Trust:  The Best Practices Boards program creates and promotes an environment of respect and trust for all group members.  And shared experiences within a Best Practices Board often lead to mutually supportive and beneficial relationships outside of the group.

The Features that Make it Work

Confidentiality: All members agree that any information disclosed within peer group meetings is confidential and must not be communicated to others outside of the group. Breach of this agreement is grounds for dismissal from the group.

Experienced Group Facilitation: An important ingredient for a successful Best Practices Board is skilled meeting management by an experienced group facilitator. We have facilitated CEO peer groups since 1995, and understand how to structure and orchestrate each meeting to ensure maximum value for each participant.
