THE CEO COLLECTIVE


OUR PEER GROUPS INCLUDE THE NORTHEAST's BEST CEOS

Our CEO Collective peer groups are made up of CEOs of growth companies who are executing meaningful change and action. They bring strategic issues to the table that push their peers’ thinking and sharpen their CEO skill sets.

Members of our network are carefully selected for their experience, strategic acumen, their proven record of success, promise of future success, and importantly, their “humble confidence.” 

Our CEOs are achievers, risk-takers, bold visionaries and enlightened leaders who inspire and challenge one another every day to reach their fullest potential. 



EOs Who are a best fit for the Collective...

  • Active CEO, growing a company poised for success
  • Actively working on strategic business challenges to drive growth
  • Has CEO experience valuable to peers
  • Ego-less confidence and an understanding the value of unbiased, informed feedback

What sets us apart from other CEO peer groups?

  • Small, well-curated, selective groups limited to 10
  • Attendance is not optional, and preparation is required
  • 1-1 support sessions provided to prep for meetings
  • Structured methodology and tools that drive results
  • High focus on strategy and the role of the CEO
  • Structured, high-impact meetings with cases and feedback, no guest speakers or open discussions
  • CEO connections across groups and within the larger network through: CEO Retreat, Peer Group Exchange visits, our Partner Program and personal intros.
  • Seasoned Strategic Facilitators focused on quality including former CEOs, CEO clients, consultants all certified and committed to consistent program quality and driving results
  • The Raffoni Group’s 20+ years of work solely with CEOs and the C-suite
  • Full suite of integrated services focused on helping CEOs succeed and get things done


THROUGH A RIGOROUS SCREENING PROCESS, WE ASSESS:

  • The track record of your business, prospects for growth, and the key strategic challenges
  • Your long-term goals and how you define success?
  • Your leadership style and the degree to which you have achieved “CEO leverage”
  • Your areas of expertise and your areas for development

Only with this knowledge in-hand do we recommend an existing CEO Collective, or seek to match several CEOs from our waiting list to form a new Collective.



What to expect as a Collective member

Focus. Transparency. Candor. Confidentiality. 

Directed by a Strategic Facilitator, each Collective meeting with an emphasis on individual preparedness, an agenda comprised solely of strategic challenges, and a methodology that enables efficient, pointed insight, these are not networking groups. CEO Collectives drive results and accountability in a way no ordinary peer group can.

CEO Collective meetings are where members receive the stimulation, insights and reinforcements to make big steps. Well prepared for and tightly facilitated, you will experience refreshing transparency and cando. Behind the doors, you will have the security of learning business’ greatest lessons from experienced and respected leaders with no ulterior motives. And what is covered in the Collective, stays in the Collective.


WHAT'S IN A MEETING

Preparedness. Attendance. Accountability. Directness.

Each meeting of your CEO Collective should be one of your most valuable business days.

Pre-Meeting - Having a great meeting starts well before the meeting itself. Members are individually prepared through 1:1 time with their Strategic Facilitator, during which you’ll review your CEO Scorecard, discuss progress against your strategic goals, and together identify an area that could benefit from the feedback of your peers via an executive summary business case.

Meeting - Business case and CEO Scorecard in-hand, members convene for a day of working “on the business,” managed for efficiency and effectiveness by the Strategic Facilitator.
