No one understands the challenges and needs of CEOs, business owners and key executives better than Vistage.
For more than 60 years, we’ve been helping business leaders address their most pressing challenges and biggest opportunities. We’ve designed the most comprehensive approach to help you achieve a competitive advantage. The critical component, however, is our community.
Our members — 22,000 across 20 countries — are individuals dedicated to improving their businesses, their leadership, their community and each other. Their willingness to put ego aside and apply the necessary rigor in the pursuit of excellence is what makes us different. Makes us better.
Some answers you just can’t Google. Vistage connects you to salient, trustworthy and applicable insights and resources. It starts with new perspectives from your confidential advisory board of high-caliber business leaders. It continues with research containing the latest data-driven, actionable insights on topics that matter to you.
The demands of executive leadership evolve as your company grows and new challenges arise. Vistage helps you identify new skills, competencies and training you may need as an effective decision-maker.
When your livelihood, the lives of your employees and your reputation are on the line, making the best decision is vital. Vistage helps you refine your instincts, improve your judgment and expand your perspectives in a confidential, agenda-free environment.
Competition is stiffer and comes from all directions, making growth more challenging. Vistage members, however, operate at an advantage. According to a 2017 analysis of Dun & Bradstreet data, Vistage member companies grew 2.2 times faster than average small and medium-sized U.S. businesses.
“In my six years as a Vistage member, I’ve recommended that five people consider joining. They did, and they’re very glad they did. All six of us can benchmark our joining Vistage as the beginning of marked improvements in each of our companies’ profitability and upward trends. Now, not being in Vistage would be risky.”

Vistage works because in every advisory board meeting and in every one-to-one executive coaching session, no topic is off-limits. If you are willing to talk candidly about the tough decisions you face as a business executive, fellow members will rally around you, listen, ask tough questions and bring to bear every resource they have to help you grow as a leader and improve the workings of your business.
When our members have access to new perspectives — whether from fellow business peers, an outside facilitator, or expert speakers — they expand their view beyond their company walls in a way that traditional executive leadership training just can’t offer.
Members report that our chief executive and leadership development initiatives help them grow, learn, and find new ways to apply their newfound knowledge to their businesses. Vistage private advisory boards enable business leaders to leverage the wisdom and experience of their peers, the guidance of an expert leadership coach — called a Vistage Chair — and the collective knowledge of the worldwide Vistage community.
“I asked my leadership team if they could see any changes in me, as a result of my Vistage experience, and they all said yes.”
— Nanci Porter, President, Eastridge InfoTech
