WHY you may ask!
“CEOs are very hesitant to float new ideas to a board,” Colin says. “You can’t have open discussions in that kind of environment, so CEOs have to find a way to float ideas without committing to them, in very high-trust relationships with people who know enough to have an informed opinion on what’s going on and what they should do. And that’s exactly what The Alpha Group does.”
For almost 6 years, Colin Lindsay and his team of Regional Directors have been proving that it doesn’t have to be lonely at the top. Through monthly peer group meetings, and 121 powerful coaching sessions we have been changing the lives of executives and their companies by providing a venue for invigorating, confidential discussions, ideas and insights.
Membership in The Alpha Group offers two levels of engagement with peers – all within an atmosphere of mutual trust, respect, candour and confidentiality. Members who are willing to participate openly will find fellow members to be very supportive and generous in their willingness to share experiences, advice, and resources. Our members often find they grow personally, become stronger leaders, and see their businesses grow.
“Final Colin always says, that all Business owners and leaders should be part of a Peer to Peer Board, why would you not? How else can you hear different perspective of some of the challenging issues we all face in the world of business.”
