All For One!

The CEOs and Key Executives of my three Vistage groups recently returned from their annual spring trips to resorts in the Texas Hill Country and Islamorada, Florida.

The purpose of these getaways is to extend the time we spend in our monthly day-long meetings in order to get to know one another better, have some fun and work on the meaty issues that naturally bubble up over dinner, a cocktail or around a campfire.

Like Dumas’ Three Musketeers – who lived by the motto of “All for one, and one for all!” – the members of my Vistage groups provide advice to one another that’s rooted in experience, intelligence and the overwhelming desire to help each other succeed.

To whom do you turn for unvarnished truth? Who points out your blind spots? Who holds you accountable?

Perhaps like Dumas’ d’Artagnan you would do well to explore the benefits of joining forces with a modern-day equivalent of The Three Musketeers.
