Frequently Asked Questions
Who attends Aspiring Executives?
We always have a diverse group...CEO's, middle managers, project managers, physicians, entrepreneurs, not-for-profit leaders, and people just starting out. AE is for people who wants to be the best leaders they can be. Some of our participants include leaders from Accellent, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Canisius College, Community Foundation, Jiffy Tite, Lactalis, Nestle-Purina, RealtyUSA, Seneca Gaming, and UBMD.
Do I have to attend every session?
We understand that vacations and work commitments sometimes keep people from attending every session. But, our participants find that this is the highlight of their month and usually don't miss a minute!
Is this just theory or will I actually build new skills?
We're all about application. Each month, you get our QuickTools that provide frameworks for achieving your goals: communicating, resolving conflict, making decisions, influencing others, building collaboration, managing performance, time management, and more!
Do I have a chance to talk about specific opportunities and challenges I face?
Absolutely! We start each session with "How Was Your Month?" This is your opportunity to talk about how you applied new skills, as well as to ask for feedback and advice about problems you face. This peer sharing and problem solving component is often the best part of the session!
Where do we meet?
AE is held at our office near Main & Transit in Williamsville. Participants enjoy our jeans-and-sneakers, feels-like-home office, complete with fireplace and sunroom. We also provide a healthy breakfast and lunch to fill you with energy!
What is the cost?
We know that programs of this caliber, that include one-on-one coaching, cost $10,000 or more! And, you most likely need to travel to another state for an extended period of time. This life-changing experience is available, right here in Western New York for just $4,000. Payment plans and discounts for multiple participants from one organization are available.
