Why join?

The Department for Business Energy & Innovation Strategy (BEIS) Productivity Review found that those businesses that adopt formal management practices are more likely to achieve higher turnover, employment and productivity growth.
Businesses that seek external advice or undertake formal training are more likely to improve their performance.
A significant part of a business’s leadership and management practice comes via its board and the appointed Non-Executive Directors. However, very few businesses pro-actively invest in the development of their boards.
Evidence indicates that Peer Networks can result in 2.5% higher productivity. Furthermore, a study performed across over 2000 businesses identified a correlation between High Performance Leadership Effectiveness and Business Performance resulting in a 2x impact on profits. This work is documented in the book Mastering Leadership by Robert J. Anderson & William A. Adams.
In 2019 Vistage, the world’s largest peer to peer organisation, undertook a survey on why people joined a peer group. Here are the results:
  • Overwhelmed/stuck in the weeds (34%) - want to work on the business not in it.
  • Isolated at the top (26%) - want to work with peers in similar positions as no real access to explore things without vested opinions.
  • Energised and driven (19%) - on the right track but want to learn more and give back to others.
  • Imposter syndrome/fear of failure (18%) - first NED role; first business venture; not sure what to do; relationships not on an even keel.
Your peer group offers a comprehensive method for maintaining your own skills and learning to drive business results.
