The Acumen Experience

Focused on 12. Covering your 6.

What if you could partner with like-minded allies who helped you look forward (your 12) while simultaneously helping to protect your flank (six)? This is what it looks like to join forces with other Acumen members.

How it works

Acumen ignites a Higher Standard of CEO influence and business impact. Our Impact Platform delivers dynamic resources that sharpen, challenge and inspire your effectiveness as a leader and your organizations overall performance.

When you join Acumen, you’ll be placed on an Acumen Council with other CEOs and owners in non-competing businesses with similar characteristics, revenue, employee count, locations and demographics. This affinity-centric approach combines the benefits of an advisory board and a peer mastermind group and is personally led by an experienced entrepreneur and former CEO who we call a Growth Catalyst.

Why The Acumen Experience?

Overall, these events represent less than 5% of an average CEO’s work hours. Think of the life-changing impact this small investment of time will have on your business and personal growth objectives, while laying groundwork toward your legacy.

There were times in their respective businesses when they were consumed by inspiring and motivating others, leaving little energy or time to devote to unplanned business or life issues.

Other times, they were hit with problems so big or so complex, they didn’t know where to turn or what steps to take. Where was the CEO and owner playbook?

Who had the answers? “Not Knowing” can be an expensive, costly and game-changing predicament. “Knowing and not doing” can be even more so. They both have deep scar tissue to show for it!

Acumen, a community where CEOs and business owners would feel safe to share their greatest challenges and aspirations for business and personal growth, was poised for big impact. The parameters for joining were simple: only owners/CEOs of successful, growing businesses would be invited. They must be humble and teachable, and aspire to discover, exercise and celebrate their unique God-given talents to love others.
