Vistage is an organization that provides executive coaching in a unique way. For more than 60 years, Vistage has been bringing together successful CEOs, business owners, and key executives into confidential peer advisory groups. The group meets for a day, once a month, to listen to experts in their respective fields during morning sessions and process members’ business issues in the afternoon. Further, every quarter, meetings are devoted to all day executive sessions to allow more time to process members’ issues and member development. 

Phillips encourages Executive Partners to experience the benefits of the program. Data shows that Vistage member companies grew 2.2x faster than average medium sizes businesses. Several Phillips Partners have had the opportunity to experience the benefits of the peer groups and reap the benefits of gaining insight from peer leaders. 

“I’ve been in Vistage for over 14 years. Other than getting my MBA, I think Vistage has been the greatest business learning lesson I’ve had in my career. I’ve been very fortunate to have a wonderful group of business leaders in my group over the years. I’ve learned as much from them processing their business issues as I have with them helping with mine. And I’ve heard excellent professional presentations on many business aspects over the years which I know have helped me be a better leader.”
