How EA Works

There are three core components to the Executive Agenda experience: the Group, the One-on-One with your EA Chairman, and the Meeting.

The Group

There are currently 42 EA groups of 12-15 members each, representing 300+ companies in the greater metro Wisconsin areas of Appleton, Green Bay, Madison and Milwaukee. Members of each group are carefully selected to ensure that: they are high-quality managers in terms of experience, character and commitment; they represent a diverse range of industries and functions; there are no conflicts of interest with other members of the group; and there is positive group chemistry.       

The One-on-One

A One-on-One is an in-person, private discussion between a member and his or her Chairman. They are typically scheduled quarterly, about a month prior to the member's group meeting and last 1½-2 hours. Members determine the One-on-One agenda, and the Chairman functions as a personal advisor, coach and confidante.

The Meeting

Full-day group discussion meetings are conducted quarterly. It is in these sessions that members function as a personal board of advisors for one another. Facilitated by the group's Chairman and utilizing the Seven Step Process, members hone their leadership, communication, and decision-making skills by working through each other's issues, challenges and opportunities.

In addition to Executive Agenda's three core components, members also have access to other learning opportunities and support services:

Special Interest Meetings

Seminars of high-interest topics presented by a panel of subject-matter experts at 2½ hour breakfast sessions offered four to six times per year.

Senior Managers Program/Guest Membership

Your choice of two, full-day seminars led by nationally-recognized speakers.

EA Network Publication

A monthly electronic publication distributed to more than 1,100 EA and TEC members in Wisconsin for the purpose of sharing ideas, employment available, and employment wanted.

My Vistage - International Internet Connection

Online access to the wisdom, best practices and experiences of more than 18,000 EA and Vistage/TEC members in 15 countries worldwide.

which cannot be discussed at work."
