Vistage Peer Advisory Group

What is a Peer Advisory Group?

A peer advisory group is a unique opportunity to grow as a leader so you can grow your business faster.

The concept is simple but the results are powerful. 

Dedicate one day per month to work on your business, not in your business. Use that time—and the input and perspective of 15 CEO colleagues and your executive coach—to make high-level strategic decisions. With Vistage, you’ll accelerate success while working smarter, not harder.

Does Vistage Work?

Short answer—absolutely! Companies headed by Vistage peer advisory members grow 2.2x faster than non-members’ companies. 

And when times are difficult (like today), the support, skills, and collaborative problem-solving gained through a peer advisory group really pay off. During the Great Recession, for example, Vistage members’ companies grew 5.8% while most competitors struggled to survive.

Just as important as the revenue figures, however, are the personal exploration, goal-setting, and accountability built into Vistage’s proven process. You’ll come to know yourself better and be better to yourself because of the work you put in with Vistage.

If you’re among the 99% of executives who don’t have a peer advisory group, it’s time to ask why. Don’t you deserve the unbiased input and accelerated results participation can bring? Even if you already have an executive mentor, a peer advisory group and its integrated coaching and learning opportunities are a perfect complement.


Ready to Roll?

A Vistage peer advisory and coaching experience is transformative, but not all business owners and CEOs are good candidates.

This Sacramento-area Vistage Peer Advisory is designed for experienced executives leading companies with annual revenues of $5 million to $500 million. Sole proprietorships, partnerships, family-owned businesses, closely-held private companies, and divisions of national enterprises all qualify, and each group’s members are selected from non-competing industries.

More important than the size of the company are the characteristics a member brings to the group. The Vistage experience rewards individuals who are prepared to engage in deep exploration toward personal and professional growth.

If you’re ready to break through, Vistage may be for you.
