The Art & Science of Leading

Executive Forums

Executive Forums

Growing a company can be more like traversing a jungle gym than climbing a ladder, with its full share of uncertainty and unpredictability. ArtScience Group provides confidential CEO Forums for Executives who are open, continuous learners and who can benefit from the experience of peers in navigating the complexities of growing profitable companies. Being around trusted advisors allows executives to open up to new ideas, novel approaches and collaboration.

Gain Practical Insights –  Executives of non-competing companies serve as an informal outside board of advisors, with no hidden agendas and conflicts of interest, with whom you can openly discuss sensitive issues and get a clear professional view.

Overcome Organizational Inertia -  A chance to meet the challenges of growing a business with the counsel of experienced leaders that provide accountability for those times when you need someone to hold your feet to the fire.

Make Better Decisions – A diversity of perspectives and experiences from trusted peers that help you identify and evaluate alternatives for solving business challenges, leading to better decisions. A steering committee to provide valuable insights when charting unknown waters.

Save Time – Hearing the challenges that other accomplished executives experienced in scaling their companies and the lessons learned, helps you prepare for what’s around the corner saving you both time and resources.   

Raise The Bar – Sometimes you have to be around others who have higher standards to reach your highest personal and professional potential.  Being in a group of continuous learners sharing valuable insights, providing intellectually challenging input, and holding you accountable for your actions helps you to raise your game and be the best you can be.

Expand Your Trusted Executive Network - Expand your network with diverse, successful business leaders, and gain valuable knowledge of cross-industry best practices.
