About the Adaptive Business Leaders (ABL) Organization
ABL supports the needs of its Member CEOs by providing a place for
top-level executives to draw on the experience, knowledge and skill sets
of their peers in a vertical industry, personal advisory board –
“multi-coach approach” – setting.
core component of the CEO Membership experience is the group Round Table
meeting. Members meet once a month for a half-day with a group of peer
CEOs, Presidents, COOs and Division General Managers from non-competing
companies, all from the same industry (healthcare, technology or life
sciences), in a trusted and confidential board room-like setting, which
allows ABL Members to tackle topics and enhance their decision making
and business performance. Topics include: developing and honing new
business strategies and best practices, new lines of business,
“A-players” on the management team, and an effective board of directors,
as well as understanding trends in new markets, mergers and
acquisitions, compensation, and other “hot” topics brought to the Round
Tables by the Members themselves.
ABL Members also gather several times a year at workshops and
conferences to exchange ideas and connect with other chief executives
beyond their own CEO peer groups. In effect, ABL Members serve as one
another’s business coaches within the Round Tables and are encouraged to
connect and leverage their co-Member peers’ particular skills and
expertise for additional leadership coaching, one-on-one, outside of
their monthly group meeting. In addition, each Round Table’s facilitator
also serves as an objective business advisor, offering executive and
industry insights and advice.
Chief Executive Leadership Development Round Table program is currently
offered in California's Greater Los Angeles, Orange and San Francisco
County areas. More information about the ABL Organization can be found
