Vital Leader Roundtable is a workshop series designed to prepare teams of manufacturing and (or) distribution company leaders, to drive short-term profitable growth. Initial roundtable topics (Months 1-4) build business acumen and broaden leadership horizons beyond functional accountability. Leaders who develop a more ‘holistic’ approach and understanding relative to the broader business will be in a much better position to make improved business-building decisions within their respective areas of expertise.

While Months 1-4 are facilitated in a group setting, month 5 is conducted specific to each company, onsite at the company location with the participant company leadership team.

Vital Leader Roundtable is different than other peer group formats in that we work with entire teams; not individual leaders.
