The Startup Nation
Cornerstone CEO Club (CCC) is a CEO-only forum for startup leaders. Admission to the CCC is by invitation only to a selected group of CEOs and subject to an annual subscription fee. Admission process includes interview by Chief advisors and no participants from competing companies are allowed in the same group to prevent conflict of interests.
Why should you join CCC
CCC provides professionally facilitated, confidential peer advisory groups for CEOs, in startup companies. A trusted group of CEOs shall meet regularly, to address real life business issues affecting performance of the business. A good chance for the CEO to really step back and reflect, bounce ideas off your peers, or get wise counsel from peer CEOs and an experienced CEO advisor. CCC sessions are held eight times a year, of five hours each. In addition to that, there are four one-on-one sessions between the advisors and the CEO so that personal and sensitive issues can be addressed individually.
Facilitation and Issue-Solution methodology
CCC sessions are conducted by Cornerstone appointed Chief Advisor. A structured Issue-Solution methodology is applied throughout the session, identify key business issues and generate suggested solutions among participants. Session begins with each participant sharing their top one or two business issues. The team will select one issue to be addressed at time. Subsequent steps include further clarification of issues to ensure full understanding and interpretation of the issue. The issue is then restated for clarity and move into the stage of suggestions for resolving the issues. Peer CEOs are now acting as advisors and contributing possible solutions from their own experience and expertise. The issue owner is required to commit to an action and report back to his peers in next meeting.
Expert speaker series sharing real business cases and latest industry insights
An expert speaker is invited at each session sharing business insights tailored to the needs of group members. This is an added dimension to enrich and widen the exposures of the CEOs.
Any member can be asked to leave the group if he or she is found by the majority to be of not working to the interest of the group or has significantly interrupted the group proceedings.
