Strategic Business Leadership® (SBL)
You will look forward to your monthly private coaching sessions with this easy-to-use business process that moves business owners from a leadership style based on the "idea of the week" to one based on strategic thinking. Following clearly outlined steps, you will define your visions, goals, strategies and action plans to achieve the success you desire. SBL was designed specifically for time-challenged owners of small and medium-sized businesses, so you will find it practical—unlike traditional, more cumbersome planning processes used by large companies.
TAB Business Vantage®
We've developed an in-depth online analysis to give you a 360-degree look at your company. With more than 300 questions analyzing all areas of your business, the resulting report guides business owners to identify and prioritize the activities and actions necessary to take your company to the next level.
One of the added benefits of being a member of an international organization like The Alternative Board® is that you have access to more than 5,000 member businesses worldwide. The TAB Hotline gives you an opportunity to expand your peer-to-peer relationships and advice beyond your local TAB Board and into the international business community. The Hotline is an email-based system for trading knowledge and advice across the entire TAB community.
Tips from the Top®
Tips from the Top® is a monthly newsletter for those at the top of privately owned businesses. It taps the secrets and real-world strategies profitable business owners, entrepreneurs, CEOs, presidents and partners have used to achieve their success. Your time is valuable, so Tips from the Top® is always short and concise. The information in Tips from the Top® can help you improve your business and bottom-line results.
