Follow the Leaders
Over the last 22 years, I think I have met, spoken, texted, or emailed with 7700 CEOs. More than 1100 of them joined VACEOs and participated in a peer roundtable.
Not once, ever, have I had a member tell me, “Boy, I sure am glad I waited to join you!”
However, many times I have heard a CEO say, “I really wish I had done this sooner.”
So, what’s the best time for you to join a roundtable? “Now” is the short answer. Certainly, you need to be determined to commit to your roundtable peers with your presence at every meeting and with your full-on participation at those meetings.
Don’t have time, you say? You never will. No one has time. But you must do it if you want to grow yourself as a CEO and your business and its value.
Scot McRoberts helped found VA Council of CEOs in 2000, and has been it’s Executive Director since then.
Nail on the head here Scot. Saying you’re too busy for a peer forum is like saying you can’t go to the doctor because you’re sick.
