Do you ever feel like you are lost in the woods? Stop wandering!

Let Bryson Trails and a local group of non-competing peers help you define a clear and compelling path forward.

Our CEO Peer Groups are designed to provide you a safe, confidential space to help you make more effective decisions that lead to powerful results. Learn to take time to work on your business instead of in it. Stop being reactive and learn how to be proactive. Learn to focus on what is most critical and gain different perspectives on complex issues.

Peer Group Session with Ellen and group memebers conversatingSessions are four hours in length and meet monthly. Attendance is required at all meetings except in the event of sickness or death. Meeting dates are agreed to in advance and each participant is asked to reserve the time on their calendars and schedule around. Meetings are professionally facilitated by a former CEO and Executive Coach. We utilize a proven system for goal setting, both personal and professional, and hold each other accountable to achieve the desired results. Members sign a Participation Agreement that includes a confidentiality clause.

Currently, peer groups are forming in the local Athens area and are filled by invitation. Prospective members are placed in groups that are similar in revenue and employee size and have a common market focus: service, retail, industrial, medical, non-profit, etc.

Peer Group Intrest Form

I have been in business for over forty years in the area of disaster mitigation and restoration. I’ve attended many “growth” presentations, a fair number of seminars on how to build my business, as well as business courses designed to do the same. In all those years, I’ve not run across a better well of information than your presentation. It was well thought out, precisely planned, and intuitive, so that no matter what level of business you are currently in, you can see what the next steps are in the big picture in order to develop and grow your business. While it was a big picture presentation, it attended to the smaller details that always seem to bedevil businesses; that prevent growth, that keep ownership from obtaining the next level. I would highly recommend this presentation, as well as yourself as the presenter. You added your years of business experience and knowledge to the presentation, to make it truly wonderful!

I have attended Ellen Bryson’s “Barriers to Growth” presentation on a few different occasions, and I learn something new from it each time. No matter what business you are in, I believe the information is relevant and helpful if you are trying to grow your business. The presentation highlights the common challenges businesses face at different stages of growth, and having that information has helped me become laser-focused on what I need to be doing to grow to the next level. And having Ellen as the presenter is a bonus—she brings a wealth of knowledge from her years as a consultant and coach and supplements the presentation with real-life examples of what it takes to succeed.

Ellen’s Barriers to Growth presentation was a real eye-opener for me. I gained valuable insight into the key roadblocks that deter progress, and especially about how effective delegation will help us to surpass the next hurdle. I will continue to take steps to put all of this knowledge into practice for my business.
