Certified LXCouncil Partner and Moderator

LXCouncil (Leader Exchange Council) is a membership-based organization that develops unique CEO and leader level peer-to-peer groups in multiple geographies. We assist owners to achieve their potential through the creation of confidential peer advisory groups composed of noncompeting owners and leaders. Each council is designed to provide members with insights, perspectives, and constructive solutions to their problems and roadmaps to their opportunities through the experiences of their fellow peers. It is like “renting your own board of advisors.”

At LXCouncil, we develop the right fit group for each CEO through our strategic alliances and unique discovery process, thereby ensuring the local CEO’s value in participating with true peers who are as committed as they are and bring something unique to the boardroom table.
