Some Top Tier Program Benefits


Validated Thinking and Fresh Ideas: The Alternative Board TAB® provides the most effective sounding board for the CEO’s toughest decisions—fellow chief executives who have encountered and overcome similar challenges. Fresh ideas and perspectives are the fuel for any organization's continued growth and innovation. The Top Tier Program includes several of the most successful entrepreneurs in Texas.


Improved Decision Making: Premier executives have few people to turn to for seasoned advice and the unbridled truth. By providing a forum where pioneering CEOs can test the trial without the error, Top Tier helps members route out the core issues and critical success factors, avoid potholes and make the most informed decisions.


Focus and Congruence: The larger the organization, the greater the chance for mis-alignment and wasted resources. The members of the Top Tier Board and its TAB Facilitator-Coach will challenge assumptions, uncover opportunities and hold each other accountable for taking action.


Priceless Relationships: It can be Lonely at the Top. Elite entrepreneurs understand this fact more than most. Relationships among TAB Top Tier members are invaluable from a business and personal perspective.


Improved Performance: The Bottom Line. TAB is committed to improving members' performance so their companies can perform better and so they can live more fulfilling lives.


Top Tier members are selected by invitation or recommendation only, based upon a variety of business, leadership, and personal criteria. Only the most qualified applicants are selected for inclusion.
