Harnessing The Power of Collaborative Leadership
by Marise Kumar Vistage Chair

This transformative Executive Leadership Mastermind Session took place on September 28th 2023 at the UNC Charlotte Portal building.


This event was a game-changer for our Cohort businesses in attendance. Facilitated by Charlotte Vistage Chair, Marise Kumar, this event challenged the notion that leadership is a solitary endeavor, advocating instead for a collaborative approach.


Drawing upon proven strategies from Vistage Worldwide, the session empowered business leaders to leverage the collective wisdom of their teams.

This event was not just about information; it was about transformation, offering a fresh perspective on leadership that promises to enhance business success and team cohesion in today's fast-paced corporate environment.

Leading Minds: A Mental Health Exploration
by Dr. Ron Bell

We had a profoundly impactful Executive Leadership Session on October 12th, 2023, at the UNC Charlotte Portal Building. Dr. Ron Bell, a leading authority on preventing burnout, provided invaluable insights that resonated deeply with our entrepreneurs.


Considering the startling statistics — Forbes reporting that 92% of small business owners have experienced mental health issues within the past two years, and Harvard Business Review noting that 25% of entrepreneurs feel emotionally dependent on their work — the timeliness and relevance of Dr. Bell's guidance could not have been more crucial.


The session truly empowered our community to understand and address the all-too-real issue of business burnout, marking a significant moment in their entrepreneurial journeys.
