Guiding Principles

Aligning with our group's guiding principles is critical for success. When all members are in sync to accomplish a common purpose, we can actively support each other, remain laserfocused on what is most important, and be fully committed to learning and advancing together.

SB Program Overview

The Small Business (SB) program helps business owners and CEOs rise above the urgent to address the strategic. Small Business members are typically first-time CEOs and founders who are "doing it all" without the formal management team, organizational structure, or executive leadership experience found in larger companies.

Through Vistage, the CEOs of small businesses learn to bring greater structure, vision, and executive leadership to their organizations, building the foundation for strategic growth.
