Our Practices

Enterprise leadership is more demanding than ever. While leaders are awash in information, insights can be hard to find amongst the noise, and exploration can drift into organizational distraction. Boards provide governance and shareholder advocacy, not mentorship. Consultants have morphed into contractors. Coaches often lack practical perspective on the challenges of leading an enterprise. Informed, objective advice and counsel is harder than ever to find.

After collaborating for several years to help hundreds of business leaders, we have come together to create a new firm dedicated to serving the unique needs of enterprise leaders. Our members are former top executives from a wide range of industries. We combine their experiences and access to their professional networks to help our clients shape their leadership agendas, set priorities, and take decisive action. When needed, Council Advisors deploys executive-level support to drive execution and ensure that outcomes are delivered.

We work with leading public, private, and family-owned businesses. We have experience with private equity and venture capital investors as both co-investors and advisors trusted by both investment firm and portfolio company management teams. We work with SPAC sponsors to help their acquired companies transform from private ventures to publicly traded enterprises.

Our mission is to offer clarity and independent, informed perspective to enterprise leaders. We forge partnerships that accelerate strategy execution.

Vision And Ideas

CEOs want more than a brand tagline. They want a compelling narrative about the future ambition of their company: why people would want to spend their money with you, work for you, let you operate in their communities, and invest with you. We help CEOs advance, protect, and position the ideas that matter most.

Strategy Execution

Now more than ever, strategy execution is where value is created or lost. Too few companies embrace and adopt digitally enabled business models and emerging tools and techniques to maximize growth. We help CEOs understand where and how to apply advanced analytics and digital technology to best grow their people, profits, and customer value.

Top Leadership Effectiveness

Many companies struggle to understand what kind of leadership their business requires to drive success—and how to effectively implement it. We work with executives who aim not only to inspire others, but also to create more value in everything they do. By connecting leaders to ideas, solutions, and wisdom of the most influential CEOs, we help them thrive.

Talent And Succession

Human capital is the leading sustainable differentiator and biggest management opportunity of the next decade. We approach talent management and succession as vital parts of advancing business strategy and driving return on investment. The CEOs with whom we work view recruitment and talent development not as a matter of benefits and compensation, but rather as drivers of business.
