The CEO MasterMind Board

CEO MasterMind Board membership is a key part Chief Executives Guild membership

Why do top performing chief executives join and participate in CEO MasterMind Boards?

Chief executives who tackle their toughest challenges utilizing the collective wisdom of a professionally facilitated peer MasterMind group that includes private mastermind coaching, lead faster growing, more profitable, healthier companies.

Bill George, CEO of Medtronic from 1991 to 2001, grew Medtronic Corporation from $1.1-billion to $60-billion in just ten years. Bill credits his mastermind group with helping him see his blind spots, make the best possible decisions, and stay on the right course during that time.

Currently over 50,000 chief executives who lead Fortune 500 corporations, midmarket companies, large nonprofits, educational institutes, and high-growth small businesses report receiving a high return on the time and money they have invested in participating in a peer MasterMind group.

Some MasterMind groups are run informally by the members, some by retired executives, others by business consultants. The most effective CEO MasterMind groups are chaired by C-level executive coaches and facilitators.

The cost of membership in these groups ranges from a few thousand dollars to well over $40,000 per year, depending on the size of members’ companies (Fortune 500/midmarket/small business), whether or not coaching and facilitation, are included, and the pricing structure required by the organization that builds and oversees the MasterMind groups.
