The Council of Chiefs
Connection. Wisdom. Legacy.
The Council of Chiefs is a private and confidential network of high performing CEOs, Head Coaches of Elite Sporting Teams, DGs of major government organisations and Founders of medium sized business.
Our aim is to connect with other quality chiefs and learn from each other by sharing story, strategy and wisdom so that we all continue to grow and leave a legacy.
One of our most experienced CEOs describes in their own words the challenge of the CEO role:
I do think that there are people who don't appreciate the responsibility that rests on a CEO. A really good CEO accepts 150% of the responsibility for everything that happens, whether it's the people they've hired, the people they've acquired, the people they've inherited, where those people go from a personal development point of view, how they get to do their jobs. All of that is the CEO's responsibility. I've walked into situations where the people who've hired me said, "They're a crap group. Get rid of them." And they weren't. I've walked into situations where I was told that the team was good, and we could have done better. So you take full responsibility is the first part. You're also responsible for the customers, for the markets, for the products, everything. A good CEO takes full accountability of that. I think people don't appreciate and understand what that can do to a person, how that can impact a person, and how lonely the role becomes because there's only so many people you can go and talk to when things aren't going right or when decisions need to be made. That's what also then makes a CEO's role most rewarding as well. So it can be a lonely role, it can be a challenging role, but it can also be a really rewarding role if you get the fundamentals right.
All great chiefs find their own support team away from the hierarchy of their role. A place that breaks the silence of isolation and helps them make considered and wise decisions. In the Council of Chiefs you'll immediately have access to some of the smartest minds in the country who'll join you on the path to being a great chief by sharing their stories, experience and network.
This is NOT a make-a-million scale-up network for want to be entrepreneurs. It is not a place to come and demonstrate how clever you are or splash your cash around. It's fair dinkum, values based, bold, inspiring, no-frills excellence. Being in this room simply demands that you become your best self.
