About Alan Sorkin, Group Chair
It all starts with why...
My purpose is to use my gifts to help ignite, inspire and transform the lives of those closest to me and to make the world a little better.
It takes more than a snap of the finger for YOU to go from a good to great leader. And there’s a big difference between leading and truly inspiring our team.
I play many roles encouraging and empowering YOU to reach your highest potential by developing your ability to inspire, motivate and lead others to accomplish amazing results; and to create cultures of accountability, inquiry and respect.
I care about YOU creating valuable learning experiences with each interaction for a select group of lifelong learners, brave CEO's and entrepreneurs who meet once a month all day, participating in ½ workshops with world class experts; giving and receiving feedback on critical decisions, issues and opportunities that can only be discussed in a safe, confidential environment; and YOU and I have individual monthly coaching sessions.
I serve as a virtual mirror asking YOU the tough questions pointing out the differences in what YOU do verses what YOU say YOU truly want. I help YOU navigate your business, professional and personal journeys. I help YOU understand, and activate what YOU truly know and why YOU are not acting. YOU will develop more discipline to hold your team, and yourself, accountable. I will challenge your assumptions, beliefs and decisions; and then cheer your accomplishments.
I paid the consequences for working too hard living an unbalanced life that leads to poor health and poorer family relationships so I work diligently to help YOU avoid those mistakes.
After experiencing the power of Vistage, I chose a career sharing what I learn the hard way helping YOU, other entrepreneurs and CEOs. Sheer boredom, after a successful exit, caused me to co-create a chain of restaurants. I quickly learned that I knew a lot less about developing a chain of restaurants then I thought and found my success, and even survival, was in jeopardy. A near bankruptcy lead me to Vistage and it changed my life.
Vistage helped me turn my company around, successfully exit, and create this group to share my life lessons.
