Why join a peer advisory council? We have yet to find a comprehensive how-to manual for running a company. We believe that is because there is no exact science in doing so; running a business is not cookie-cutter. If it were, more people would do it and we’d all be successful. But no two situations are exactly the same. There are nuances that are all different at any point in time, like the competition, your team, and the economy, to name a few. With those differences, solutions are not the same.
It can be very lonely operating as an owner or CEO, particularly if you do not have a partner or partners and when there is no manual.
- Who do you talk to?
- Who can you confide in?
- Who can check your thinking?
- Who can inspire you with new ideas?
The short answer is your peers can help you help yourself and your company while you simultaneously do the same thing for them. That’s simply the beauty of joining a peer advisory group. The benefits work on both a surface and a deep level.
In her book, “Sit Down, Speak Up, Cash In – A CEO’s Guide to Peer Advisory Groups,” LXCouncil Tina Corner details what a peer advisory council is, why participate, what the benefits are, and how to find a right-fit council for you. If you’ve every considered becoming part of a peer advisory council, we highly suggest you take advantage of the insight offered in this free download.
Given the experience and insight brought to the table at peer advisory council meetings, why would any CEO of a financially stable company who wants to grow, whether personally in his or her role or grow the company, not join a peer advisory council?
As a member of a peer advisory council you can:
- bridge the gap between reality and the future more successfully
- hear real experiences that are relevant to your situation
- interact with peers and develop deep relationships that can last a lifetime
- make faster and better decisions
- become more proactive and less reactive
- save your company money
- become a better leader
- take action that creates greater results
- have access to resources locally from the recommendations of your peers
- gain insight into your blind spots through unbiased feedback
- be happier or spend more time on what you do best that brings greater value to the company
- be accountable
- have more energy and clarity
Being involved in a peer council can catapult you ahead faster, further, and smarter than you could ever do alone. You can have a phenomenal team of employees, but no team has your back more than your unbiased peer council. As your fellow business owners, they are the ones who “get it.”
We equate being in the right peer council to finding your dream team.
Isn’t it time to start your journey?
By being involved in a peer council, you will sit down in your council meeting to work “on” your business, you will speak up and be heard with your peers both in giving your insight and experiences and in receiving them, and the result is you will cash in on the ideas, perspectives, and feedback you receive.
“Epiphanies can be intentional, not serendipitous.” ~ Tina Corner
