Vistage helped me realize that regardless of the industry you’re in, that you really share more with other business communities than you think. It gives you a little bit of confidence and a little bit of a boost knowing that you are not in this alone.
My Vistage group holds me accountable.
There is no other way to say that. You have to set the goals, you have to say the goals out loud, and the goals keep coming back. So what you told the group you are going to do, you better do. If not you better have a good reason why not. I appreciate that, because it is not just a group of my friends who are sitting around telling me I am wonderful, it is not that at all. It is people who are also in business who will question some of my decisions and who may ask different questions about that and who will really hold me accountable about things that I have said I am going to do.
