High Standards for Membership
Our members are professional industry leaders who are dedicated to not only helping their own businesses, but also providing others with insight. We uphold a certain criteria of professional and personal credentials for members and moderators in the council and expect that each member be courteous, respectful, confidential…and forthcoming.
However, many businessmen and -women do not fit the model for our councils. Before you inquire about membership, you should ask yourself if you have any of the following qualities. You should also view a video of Council members discussing who should not be members.
Why You SHOULDN’T Become a Member of Peer Advisory Group
- Lack of commitment. The members of our councils are committed to facing the shortcomings of their business, even if they are part of the problem. If you are not committed to solving these issues, then our boards are not for you.
- Inability to face shortcomings. There is a certain sense of relief that comes from admitting that you are wrong or that you do not know all of the answers. In our councils, you are provided with a safe space to come to terms with these hard truths.
- Unwilling. These boards may point out some unflattering facts about your management style, but – above all – you must be willing to change. Whatever needs to be done, you must be willing to do it for the success of your business.
- Lack of priority. The members are expected to be in attendance and engaged during the half day meetings. Being present is important as everyone counts on each other to be there for each other.
- Can’t Listen. Listening is critical to understanding each member’s true issue, concern or opportunity for which they are asking feedback. First seek to understand and then be understood. If you are the type that jumps to conclusion or isn’t interested in what others are saying, then this is not for you.
- Networking for business vs. growing personally and the business. This is not a networking organization, nor is it based on referrals for your business. If you are interested in joining for business development reasons vs. improving and learning, then this is not for you.
