On the Brink with Andi Simon

Jul 19, 2017

In this delightful discussion, Allen shares with the listeners his ideas about being an executive coach and the value of your peers to help you see your business with fresh eyes. I know Allen for almost a decade now and I have spoken to many of his CEO groups about strategy. The energy his leaders exhibit tell you a lot about the role he plays in the way they lead their organizations to sustain their growth in fast changing times.

Allen has been with Vistage International, an organization of CEO's and their key leadership since 1994. Today, Allen leads four peer groups comprised of over 70 CEO and C-Level Executives. They meet monthly to advise each other in an objective peers-only forum free of competitive or significant customer/supplier relationships.

In this episode, Allen Hauge and I discuss:

  • What are some things CEOs are struggling with today
  • As boomers retire, companies prepare millennials for leadership
  • How women own 38% of the businesses in the country
  • Building blocks of successful location-independent teams
  • Practical business strategies that anyone can implement
  • Importance of not wasting time and executing fast
  • Finding peace in uncertainty
  • His experience with coaching and counseling
  • Knowing your strengths and weaknesses in order to understand whether you should be a CEO at all
