Last weekend one of my Vistage colleagues laughingly observed that itâ€™s clear that the President and Congressâ€™s leadership are not Vistage members.
Why? Because Vistage members focus on building effective long-term strategies that focus on producing long-term results. They know that if they let problems fester and become short-term roadblocks to the larger roads to growth, their companies will fail.
They also know that if a problem appears on the horizon which would sidetrack them from focusing on the long-term issues, they bring it to their Peer Advisory Group â€“ people with uniquely different experiences to offer new ideas which can be used to resolve the challenge through creativity and negotiation.Â Our leaders arenâ€™t even talking to each other! Mostly they are talking past each other.
Maybe itâ€™s time that Vistage members and chairs lend them a hand before the crisis deepens!
