Our Strategic Facilitators are a unique bunch, and they Ask the tough questions

We push where pushing yields results and we probe where probing encourages critical thinking. We are partners in your business challenges...the keepers of accountability... the askers of the tough questions. 
We work to help you get things done, smartly and quickly.

Our Strategic Facilitators are a unique group. We purposely couple former successful operating CEOs and C-Levels with seasoned consultants. This means we bring true knowledge and experience to the table, coupled with the process orientation required to execute.

All of our facilitators are certified in our methodology and collaborate with each other. This means you are not buying just “one person’s opinion”, but a collaborative practice with methodologies, contacts and a collaborative team all focused on helping you to succeed. 

We don’t believe “experts” have all the answers, we believe collaboration with the right people brings unrivaled success.

In our firm, quality delivery, successful customer business results and customer retention trumps all. We are a boutique, we have that luxury.


Whether you start with a leadership team offsite...a CEO 1-1 session...or in one of our Peer Groups, you will quickly learn our methodology and tools. They will become common nomenclature in your organization as they move from you... to your team... to the rest of the organization, when the time is right.

As you grow your company, our tools grow with you, moving with you through every stage in your CEO journey. As you scale, we scale with you. We won’t over scope or complicate things. We'll give you what you need at the right time. In our world, baby steps and planned leaps get executed. We work hard to help you "move the ball forward."   

We take your success personally and work with you every step of the way. 
We are not afraid to own it.

we help ceos tackle the tough challenges 

In our 20 years of serving CEOs, It’s fair to say that we’ve seen quite a bit. Here are just some of the common challenges we help CEOs face:

  • How do you build and execute on a strategic plan that moves in sync with a operating plan?
  • How do you build and/or upgrade a C-Suite Leadership team that is “high functioning” and executing on all cylinders?  
  • What are the best strategies to recruit, retain and engage top talent in a tight economy?
  • How can we know where to invest and where to pull back?
  • What's the best approach to manage difficult board dynamics?
  • How do you successfully execute on a needed organizational restructuring?
  • How do you integrate and manage acquisitions smoothly?
  • What are the proven approaches to implement a sales strategy that meets the needs of a changing marketplace?
  • What's the best way to position, re-position, and build your brand in an ever-changing world of marketing?
  • Innovation is a great word, but how do you actually do it?

Our collective CEO network has been there and done that, and has wisdom to share. 

Being a client of The Raffoni Group has helped me to manage against pitfalls and make important decisions with an increased level of confidence.

The CEOs We Serve want to be their best

Our CEO clients all have one thing in common: They are growing their companies and want to be the best they can be. They understand the power of collaboration and know that as CEO their ability to use the resources and skills of those around them is one critical key to success. 

Whether they are engaged in our CEO Collective Peer Program...working with us on planning their Leadership Team Strategic Planning offsite...or leveraging our skills as facilitators to move the ball forward on strategic initiatives, they appreciate our practical, informed approach and trust us in driving accountability and smart processes in their organizations. We are a "go to" resource for driving decisions, planning and results. 

I believe what makes a CEO great is an openness to keep learning and growing. Being a part of the Raffoni Group given me that chance. I rely on Raffoni Group’s thoughtful and experienced straight forward approach. The integration of the CEO collective, Key Executive and Strategic Leaders program is a powerful combination that helps us to ‘move the ball forward’ in our organization at many different levels.
