The council experience

Real Growth

At your monthly council meeting you’ll be sharpened, challenged, and inspired in a confidential and catalytic experience that matches content, conversation, and leadership best practices with other adventurous CEOs and Owners.

Acumen adheres to the shared values:

We develop healthy, growing businesses …
NOT a hospice or life line for a sinking ship.

We work on CEO/Business Owner issues …
NOT a networking or small group study.

We are humble and teachable …
NOT for the “know it all” or the person who has “all the answers.”

We share values, virtues & beliefs …
NOT for people whose walk and talk lack significant alignment.

Acumen Affinity

Our affinity-centric approach creates a community that’s both an advisory board and a peer mastermind. In combining the best of both, Acumen unifies professionals whose businesses are in similar seasons and have similar characteristics, like revenue, employees, locations, competency and demographic similarities.

The Results?

The Acumen model bolsters your inspiration and creativity, helping you lead with greater confidence. With clarity of vision, Acumen partners make better decisions — leading to stronger results.

The rhythm of having the regular monthly meeting to me is hugely valuable. I can’t imagine not making the time for it. It’s a tremendous return on the time investment that I spend in the group.”
Jon Schram,
The Purple Guys
The biggest ROI I get from the group is the accountability that the group provides. As a business owner, typically you’re not accountable to very many people and just getting their constructive well-intentioned feedback has really been invaluable.”
