Choosing the Right Team: Your Business Pit Crew

A new champ was crowned yesterday at the 96th running of the Indianapolis 500.

Near-record heat and turbo-charged competition electrified the racetrack crowd.

Today’s leaders are battling equally daunting elements: a tough playing field with gritty competitors. And just like an Indy 500 winner, you need money, skill, stamina and guts to get to the finish line.

You also need a team. How’s your pit crew?

It’s never been more difficult to be a leader. Your decisions matter more than ever.

Are you getting the advice you need to be successful? Are your answers being questioned? Some people tell you what you want to hear. A #Vistage advisory board of non-competing peers tells you what you need to hear. Are you choosing the right team to support you?

Stop driving in circles. Head to the checkered flag.
