Getting involved with The CEO Trust has been both personally and professionally rewarding. The caliber of the people and their commitment to their communities are just what one would expect from such outstanding people.
I wish the CEO Trust had been around when I first became a CEO.
My business is entrepreneurial CEOs and I’ve known MANY impressive individuals over the years. I still feel privileged to be involved with a set of top-tier CEOs who share a common vision and philosophy of helping each other. The culture that is created by these impressive individuals is amazingly warm and engaging.
Executives with a diverse circle of contacts—they interacted with many people outside their field—were three times more innovative than those with a more predictable group of friends.
There’s a lot to be said for spending time and exchanging ideas with people who share a philosophy that’s rooted in a sort of business humanism. I feel at ease with the members of The CEO Trust because, despite the senior business positions of the members, people are very down-to-earth. I wondered if I’d have the time for yet another organization, but I’m so glad I joined. For this group, I’m making the time.
Simply put, my involvement with the CEO Trust has been life transforming. The power and the magic of the Trust is that you don't really know exactly what you will get out of it or how you will be transformed as a result of your involvement. Obviously, you get out of it what you put into it but it's not like 1 + 1 = 2, it's more like 1 + 1 = 20. It truly has life-changing potential.
