Vistage New York is committed to the highest standards of excellence in all its programs.
CEO Monthly Full-Day Meetings include an Executive Session and, 6 times a year, expert-led workshops. Trusted Advisor groups offer half-day meetings with a focus on networking - so each member can acquire more clients - and leadership development - to build their practices more effectively.
Executive Session: In a trusted, confidential setting, members meet once a month in a peer-to-peer learning environment to solve problems and take advantage of opportunities in their markets. They share hard-earned expertise and newly minted ideas to reach effective solutions. The group meeting includes a candid give-and-take, where trusted peers ask each other tough, in-depth questions that get to the heart of any business problem, and usually lead to a re-statement of the true issue. As part of these meetings, members receive direct and honest feedback in a carefrontational manner, and derive actionable ideas they can implement immediately into their business. The Vistage Chair facilitates the monthly peer learning group meetings to ensure its success. Finally, the members and the Chair will follow-up to ensure that action is taken and things are working out.
Workshops: Vistage International operates the largest US Speakers Bureau, consisting of the 1000+ industry experts in leadership, strategy, culture, sales, marketing, finances, performance indicators, etc.
Some topics Vistage New York's CEO group addressed during 2010 and 2011 include:
- How to Build a Company You Can Sell for 2.5 Xs Revenues!

CEOs' 1-to-1 Coaching. The Vistage Chair also serves as coach, advisor and mentor. Two hour meetings are set aside for 1-to-1 coaching to provide advice, insight, accountability and support. Often these are used to help define issues to bring to the Group Meeting. Topics typically covered include: Expansion Strategies, Hiring, Training & Firing, Compensation Plans, Exit Strategies, Succession, Organization Structure & Culture, M & A, Outsourcing, Business Plans, Reorganizing and Life/Work balance.
Members of the Trusted Advisor (TA), Chief Sales Officer (CSO) and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) groups can request 1-on-1 coaching. Such coaching is only standard for CEO members.
Vistage Inside. Can you imagine what would happen if many of your top executives would receive the services that CEOs get (e.g., speakers, peer advisory, dedicated Chairman to facilitate the program and Vistage Village) AND do so in a format where all the members of a group are from your company? That’s the secret behind a new form of Vistage, called “Vistage Inside”.
