Be a more successful Business Leader


Do lead the way in your sector, and do others recognise this?


At The Alpha Group we make certain that you assess themselves as business leaders and identify your four priorities for significantly increasing your effectiveness.

So, how does this happen?

Easy, its a six step-process using the power of the peer-to-peer advisory board.


Firstly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you identify what is your strategic problem.

What is probably the biggest obstacle to a company achieving FastGrowth? The typical Business Leader spends more than 80% of his/her time on day to day operations and fighting fires!

Highly effective Business Leaders of FastGrowth companies do the opposite. They invest 80% of your precious attention, skills and time on improving your existing business and in developing your future business. To do this they have successfully delegated day to day operations to your team. Moreover, for the 80% of your time, they lever your skills and involve others in achieving your FastGrowth goals.

So currently, how effective are you as the Business Leader at improving your existing business and developing your future business? Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is barely adequate and 10 is outstanding. Put your ratings in the 2 boxes below:

Improving your existing business

Developing your future business

What are your strategic conclusions on your rating above?


Secondly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you assess themselves as a Business Leader.

Using the 10 FastGrowth Leader factors below, evaluate yourself. Assess each factor on a scale 1 to 10 where 1 is barely adequate and 10 is outstanding. Use your own subjective ratings. After this workshop, urgently ask your team for your ratings on you as the Business Leader.

  1. clearly define your FastGrowth goals for your company

  2. enjoy strong commitment from your senior team to achieve these goals

  3. share these goals with all your people
