THE POWER OF KNOWING WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW

Organizational psychologist and bestselling author Adam Grant is known for making business leaders rethink assumptions. That’s exactly what he delivered during a powerful, exclusive discussion for Vistage members in August. His message, designed to transform how CEOs think about and lead their companies, illuminated the necessity of “givers” in an organization and how to effectively capture feedback via your “challenge network.” Grant also highlighted the importance of psychological safety and spoke to the dangers of relying too heavily on cultural fit.

“The future of leadership is recognizing that if you don’t care about your people, they won’t care about your mission.”

BUSINESS GROWTH NATIONAL CEO CONFERENCE: TITANS OF INNOVATION

Each year, we invite our membership base to learn new ways to grow their companies. This December, members had the opportunity to connect with two titans of innovation and disruption.

Founder, President and CEO of SRC Holdings Corporation and author of “The Great Game of Business,” Jack Stack, provided insights for small and midsize business leaders to teach their teams how to think about business like an owner.

The lineup also included trailblazing football coach Dr. Jen Welter. A doctor of psychology and the first-ever female NFL coach, Welter spoke about how leaders can cultivate a champion mindset in their teams to take their business to the next level.

Words to live by: “If you understand that your unique value proposition is yours and it’s special, then you start to lean into it in a way that allows you to become more special.”

— Jen Welter

5TH ANNUAL VISTAGE ON THE HILL

A hand-selected group of Vistage Member Excellence Award winners were invited to Capitol Hill for an exclusive opportunity to meet with policy experts from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the nation’s leading advocacy group for small and midsized businesses. They discussed policy implications, shared their first-hand experiences and exchanged ideas for a better path forward for SMBs. This event provides a forum for members to share their perspectives directly with those who help shape business policy.

Words to live by: “What’s powerful is all of us coming together and being in front of these people who lobby for change, so they can hear the challenges that we’re up against in the real world and how important it is for [lawmakers] to come together to make things happen.”

Vistage Peru hosted its inaugural Vistage Conecta conference, bringing together over 600 CEOs and leaders from across the region. The conference welcomed keynote speaker and renowned creative director Pipe Stein, founder of the Uruguay-based Notable Publicidad, a leading advertising agency in South America. Stein invigorated members with time-tested creative strategies to help their companies stand out and cut through the noise.

Words to live by: “[People ask me] ‘How do you get there?’ First, with a clear vision, secondly with people who believe in you and in whom you believe.”

— Pipe Stein

COMING THIS MARCH

Global researcher and New York Times bestselling author Marcus Buckingham returns to Vistage to engage CEO members by illustrating the crucial intersection between doing what they love and effectively contributing to others. He suggests, “To attract and retain the best people, we must redesign jobs around a simple but powerful concept: love for the content of the work itself.” Members will get a deep dive into this process and learn to foster enthusiasm in the workplace.
