Crawford County Executive Leadership Peer Group

Posted: Wednesday Apr 4th, 2018

Several of our clients in Crawford County have asked us to consider putting together an Executive Leadership Peer Group for emerging leaders in the area. Decision Associates has run peer groups for owners and emerging leaders since 2002. Our goal is to provide a condensed, intense learning process; past participants have described it as "leadership boot camp."

An overview of the program elements includes:

  • Monthly, four-hour meetings, 18-24 months
  • Membership of peers, capped at 12 with a maximum of two from any one company
  • 50-60% of each session is Leadership and Management Education/Training, including Entrepreneurism, Leadership, Communication, Workplace Behaviors, Conflict Management and Personal Goal Setting
  • 40-50% of each session is traditional Peer Group, including Burning Issues, Peer to Peer Problem Solving and Peer to Peer Best Practices, as well as visits to each other's facilities
  • Case studies, speakers and reading topics will be included as appropriate

We anticipate launching a group in a Meadville location this Fall. If you would like Peer Group references or to learn more, contact: or call 814-528-9416.

“When I decided to purchase a business, I chose Decision Associates M&A to assist in the process. It was the first time that I had used an M&A firm and it went very well. Don Moore and B.J. Lechner had the ability to facilitate meetings and keep us, the seller and our attorneys talking to work through the questions that we had. They kept us on track and updated on each turn along the way. Decision Associates is a reputable, professional and knowledgeable firm, and I would recommend them to anyone who is selling their business or looking for a new venture.”
