How We’re Different

How CEO Think Tank® is Different

CEO’s recognize that the market is changing, competition is getting fiercer and successful leaders need to grow and learn. Many scramble for “think” time, working 60+ hours a week and sometimes it feels like they’re never getting ahead.

There’s always another crisis and many sporadically hold themselves and their teams accountable to the plans they (sometimes) make for their businesses. Often they don’t know where to turn.

Enlightened CEO’s who are ready to grow their companies sustainably and profitably will seek outside support. When they do, they’ll have questions. Here’s just a few that we’ve heard. If you’ve got others, please don’t hesitate to reach out and we’ll schedule a time to talk. Above all, we want to make sure you get the right resources and advice to help you succeed.

How do you guarantee that I get value for my investment with your programs? 

At CEO Think Tank® we strive to focus on priorities and projects that will generate a fairly quick payback on our services and provide you with a return on your investment.  We are confident that we can help you grow and succeed. As a result, we offer all of our clients an unconditional “Short Pay Guarantee”: If you are not fully satisfied with your results, you can pay the amount of the invoice that you feel you have received as value to your company.  If you don’t believe there has been any value, then you don’t have to pay any part of the invoice.

How is CEO Think Tank® different from other CEO Roundtable groups?

As certified Scaling Up™ Coaches, we give our clients a proven growth methodology developed by EO Founder and “Scaling Up” best-selling author Verne Harnish. Used successfully by tens of thousands of companies around the world, we help you create and implement your vision with an “executable” plan.  We also carefully select our members, ensuring you get access to a community of experienced, like-minded C Level peers to help keep you focused and on track. Finally, we connect you and your Leadership Team with thought-leaders and other business experts to give you a complete tool kit, a Trifecta of business and accountability processes developed over our two decades of working in the small and mid-market space.

How does Scaling Up™ compare to EOS/ Traction as an operating system?

There are three main differences between the two systems. One, EOS focuses on Execution as the primary driver of growth with a “nod” to Talent and People.  In Scaling Up™, in addition to the three Execution Disciplines, the program expands upon the People decision drawing on experts for additional Talent Management tools that save companies time and money. Two, Scaling Up™ provides best practices and Coaching to help you create and hone your Strategy and Strategic positioning to drive top-line growth. Three, CEO Think Tank® gives you the tools to improve your Cash Flow and Profitability, fueling your growth without allowing you to get lost in the “black hole” of profitability.
