What to Expect: How Peer Group for Presidents Works

Peer Groups are facilitated sessions guided by an Aileron Facilitator that meet 10 times per year.

Each session begins with a 3-minute update: time for each member to share personal and professional updates with the group.

Once settled in, the group discusses the most significant topics they’re facing. Those topics are driven by and personalized to meet the needs of the group as members co-create the annual agenda by lifting up the most important challenges they’re facing in their businesses.

In-person Peer Groups continue into lunch as members have informal time to continue discussions and build connections.

What’s Included

Peer Groups are facilitated sessions guided by an Aileron Facilitator that meet 10 times per year. In-person Peer Group meetings last four hours, and virtual Peer Group meetings last two hours.

Each Peer Group session begins with welcoming any new members and a 3-minute update: time for each member to share personal and professional updates with the group.

Once settled in, the group discusses the most significant topics they’re facing in the form of a Special Topic Peer Share (a member sharing their experience and facilitating a discussion around a topic) or Issue Processing (the group coming together to help process a member’s most pressing obstacles). Those topics are driven by and personalized to meet the needs of the group as members co-create the Peer Group’s annual agenda by lifting up the most important challenges they’re facing in their businesses.

In-person Peer Groups continue into lunch as members have informal time to continue discussions and build connections.

What Our Community Says

“During challenging times, it is good to have a group that may have some experiences that can help navigate a suture course of action… I always pick up at least one concept or idea (no matter how minor) to think about (or implement) when I return to the office.”

Tim Riazzi, President of Microtek Laboratories

Frequently Asked Questions

Peer Group for Presidents is for presidents, CEOs, and business owners who are installing and/or practicing professional management, striving for continuous improvement, craving accountability, and value learning from others. The service is exclusively for individuals in those roles to create an environment rich with shared understanding, empathy, peer-to-peer learning, and connection.

Peer Group for Presidents is an opportunity for business owners to learn from one another, eliminate the all-too-common isolation that comes with presidential roles, and benefit from the outside perspective, accountability, and support of a group of peers who have faced the same challenges. Peer Group members also appreciate having facilitated time to process the biggest challenges they’re facing in their business.

Peer Groups are designed to be intimate environments where members can all meaningfully connect, share, and learn together. The minimum size for a Peer Group is 10 and the maximum size is 16.

Aileron is excited to offer this service both on Campus and virtually via Zoom. The in-person version is a great way to leverage Campus and build community in a face-to-face environment, and the virtual offering is a great way for non-local Aileron community members to stay connected with Aileron and their peers.

Peer Groups meet 10 times throughout the year; virtual Peer Group sessions last 2 hours, and in-person Peer Group sessions last 4 hours and include lunch.

Each Peer Group is personalized to meet the needs of the group’s members. At the start of the year, group members co-create the Peer Group’s annual agenda by lifting up the most pressing challenges they’re facing in their businesses; throughout the year, the group spends time on each agenda item in one of two ways, adjusting as needed based on the group’s needs:

  • Special Topic Peer Share: A member sharing their experience and facilitating a discussion around a topic (i.e. implementation planning, defining culture, transitioning out of the day-to-day)
  • Issue Processing: The group coming together to help process a member’s most pressing obstacle

In-person Peer Groups continue into lunch as they have informal time to continue discussions and build connections.

A one-year membership to a virtual Peer Group is $2,400. A one-year membership to an in-person Peer Group is $4,800. If you join mid-year, your membership fee is prorated based on the time of registration.

While groups formally kick-off at the start of the calendar year, new members can join throughout the year. Once the existing Peer Groups are full, you’ll be added to a waitlist until a spot becomes available or another Peer Group launches.
