The Alternative Board® (TAB) is comprised of members who are business owners, CEOs or presidents who run non-competing businesses. Established in thousands of locations throughout the world, TAB Boards® meet in local areas one morning each month in a confidential "think tank" atmosphere.
The Alternative Board® provides a safe, confidential environment in which business owners can get advice and resolutions to their specific business challenges. Peer boards provide a 'therapy session' in which other business owners can serve as mentors for each other.
"Particularly during difficult economic times, business owners often face challenges with running their business. In times of change, new challenges and opportunities present themselves that business owners and executives may not have been faced with in the past. These are times that can either make or break a company's future," says Rebecca Boozan, Communications Coordinator for The Alternative Board®. "A peer advisory board offers business owners a chance to brainstorm with other business owners and walk away with practical, real-world advice rather than a theory."
In addition to gaining advice from peers, TAB members will also meet with their TAB facilitator once a month. The facilitator serves as an executive coach, diving even further into each member's business to help owners resolve specific issues affecting their business.
In addition to participating in the peer advisory board, TAB members receive additional members-only tools including business strategy planning through TAB's Strategic Business Leadership® (SBL) service and the organizations proprietary business performance tools, TAB Business Vantage®.
