Vistage: CEO & Executive Coaching. Since 1957, Vistage has been bringing together successful CEOs, executives and business owners into private peer advisory groups guided by expert executive coaches, known as Vistage Chairs.

From the beginning, our Chairs have been at the heart of what makes the Vistage experience so powerful for so many members. Vistage Chairs are a distinguished group of business leaders who come to us from a wide range of industries. Some have owned businesses, many have been CEOs of domestic and international companies, and all are united by a desire to share their insight and expertise with other business leaders in their communities through executive business coaching.

It all starts with the group
Put twelve or so high performing business executives in a room, and the potential is enormous. Each Vistage group is specifically tailored to CEOs, small business owners, key executives, or trusted advisors. They're purpose-built so that members can help each other to solve their most pressing business concerns through a process we call peer advisory. More than 18,000 members across the globe count on the peers in their Vistage group to provide fresh perspectives and new ideas at every monthly meeting.

An expert guides the meetings
The role of a Vistage Chair is to ensure that every bit of their group's experience and wisdom is applied in a Vistage meeting. Chairs are accomplished leaders. You can call them a CEO coach, but they are so much more than that. They are totally committed to the success of group members. Through their executive coaching services, they help stimulate thinking, frame issues, guide discussions, and ensure accountability in the group. Vistage Chairs take on the role with the express purpose of helping others build great businesses.

Take action and get results
During meetings, and in their private one-to-one sessions each month, Chairs encourage and support members' personal and professional growth, and hold members accountable for taking action on their goals. They help to develop their members and give back the knowledge they have earned through their outstanding careers as CEOs, executives, and business owners.

Chief Outsiders: Business growth starts with a vision – your vision. Armed with insights and the right resources, your vision becomes tangible by developing a roadmap from where you are today, to where you’re headed.

Incremental Growth - Continue tweaking your current products, processes, using existing resources

Substantial Growth - New insights, strategies and capabilities to reach next level, tapping "done that before" expertise

If you’re a business that's short on marketing talent, you’ve likely experienced a number of growth-limiting challenges. Chief Outsiders provides part-time marketing executives to growth and mid-sized businesses for a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). And when we place a Chief Outsider with your company, you get access to the human capital of our entire executive marketing team by virtue of our peer review process.

One way to think about Chief Outsider's fractional CMOs is that you can "rent" exactly the type of experience and amount of CMO you need:

  • Instant On – “why recruit a CMO, when you can rent one, fast.” No hiring delays, head hunters, interviews or relocations.
  • Convenience – select from a roster of C-level experience and talent. No lifetime consultants here.
  • Cost-Effectiveness – you only tap the amount of a CMO you need.
  • Always Current – we’re continuously sharpening our skills sets, which is no small challenge in this digital marketing era.
  • Backed Up – each CMO has an entire team of CMOs backing them up, reducing risk and assuring availability.
