CEO Focus
Lakewood, CO
  • Expired: over a month ago. Applications are no longer accepted.
Job Description

Please DON’T apply if:

  • · You are not a seasoned business pro capable of talking strategy with business owners
  • · You want us to hand you clients to work with
  • · You don’t want to learn more about what we do. This process should be mutual and start with you having a passion for helping business owners via peer groups. If you just want a job and to wow us with your background, we won’t care until you “opt-in” to our business model. Once you say, “It’s a good match,” it makes sense for us to invest in those candidates.

Please DO apply if:

  • · Business owners could benefit from your wisdom and help
  • · You like variety and the thought of helping dozens of businesses each month
  • · You have a balance of business expertise and marketing ability.

If you are an experienced business owner, entrepreneur, consultant, business analyst, or executive, this is your dream job! Earn what you are worth doing a job that you can feel proud of. Use your expertise to help business owners improve their organizational and personal effectiveness.

Ideal candidates will:

  • Possess well-rounded business knowledge.
  • Be comfortable advising CEOs and owners of small businesses.
  • Have the ability to work one-on-one with business owners on their issues.
  • Want a position that is very autonomous and independent. If you have a “corporate” mindset, this position is probably a bad fit. We deal with small businesses that value a consultant who thinks like they think.

If you are a well-rounded and seasoned business professional searching for a job that can balance excellent pay with plenty of personal time, this job is for you. No out-of-town travel.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I’ve never heard of CEO Focus. What do you do?

Founded in 2001, CEO Focus is a national membership organization for small business owners serving over thirty markets in North America. Our leaders meet monthly as a group plus a one-on-one coaching session with each member. In our group meetings, we work on business issues confronting our members. Groups meet once per month and consist of 8-14 members from various industries and backgrounds. Although the benefits of group membership can be difficult to quantify, many members find benefits in:

  • Increased accountability
  • Business owners with similar backgrounds to bounce ideas off
  • A strong support network
  • Access to professionals with complementary strengths
  • Improved delegation skills
  • Higher quality of living
  • Increased profitability
  • Improved level of business expertise

 

I’ve never heard of CEO groups. Is this some MLM?

This is not a frequently asked question, but frankly, it annoys us enough to address it. We have no upline or downline. We sell a product which, like a health club, is a membership. Our provides coaching, consulting, and group wisdom to small businesses. We did not invent this concept, CEO peer groups have been around since 1957, and that’s if you don’t count the first CEO peer group of Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, Thomas Edison, and President Harding.

 

What does a CEO Focus leader do?

Group leaders are responsible for leading local seminars and webinars as well as coaching each member and leading the group meetings. Each month the leader goes to the client’s business for a coaching/consulting session. These sessions have a coaching flavor rather than a “program.” CEO Focus uses a variety of coaching tools when working individually with clients. However, the most important tool is your business acumen. Your skill as a business person is just as important as the coaching tools we provide.

The second component is the group meeting. Once a month, the entire group convenes to discuss issues, best practices and conduct an “informal board meeting” in a structured format. Your job is to help each CEO get the most out of themselves and their business through our process. You will be facilitating the group meetings and working with the clients individually at their one-to-ones.

 

What do clients say about CEO Focus?
Sometimes a CEO may be reluctant to join; however, once they join, they STAY! Our average member stays 3-4 years. Once CEOs are involved in the process, they love it. Here are some of their comments:

"Ignorance is NOT bliss. We never knew how much we needed a group like this until we joined! The group and individual sessions add an extra dimension in our quest for balance in our professional and personal lives.”

"After joining the group, I realized there was life outside work."

"Membership inhibits my ability to procrastinate. The facilitator and the group hold me accountable."

"CEO Focus is an excellent medium for sharing ideas and experiences associated with running ones' own business."

"The Group has helped develop my skills as a CEO and develop a broader picture of issues outside of my industry. The friendships that are also gained are even more valuable."

 

What can I expect in regards to my lifestyle?

The workload will definitely be heavy at the outset. However, this is never a 16-hour-a-day job. Ten hours is a very full day in our world. Once you get your groups going, an 8-hour day is the norm. Our model not only allows for frequent vacations, it allows for guilt-free ones. You can schedule vacations, so the clients will never know you are gone.

 

Is there travel involved?

Yes and no. We operate in metro areas. Clients are almost always located within fifty miles of downtown. By grouping client meetings by geography, there is minimal driving. You will sleep in your own bed every night.

 

I hate selling. Is this for me?

There is NO cold calling. However, we do not get you, clients. If you want us to hand you, clients, you are in the wrong place. We develop personal relationships with clients and they want to deal with the person they will work with, not some strange salesperson. There’s no cold calling, and you don’t need to be a sales pro to do this. But if you fancy yourself Supercocach and want us to hand you clients to work with, other organizations pay $30/hour for coaches who get handed clients. You will be required to perform marketing activities to acquire group members/coaching clients. We use an educational content marketing system, which we will show you to use to fill the room with prospects. We’ve created a lot of groups using this system; it works.

 

Example Client Scenario

About ten years ago, there was a lot of buzz about the tidal wave of baby boomers who would flood the market selling their businesses. That still has not happened. Owners don't want to fully-retire. They want to stay active, and many of them cannot afford to sell the business for enough to maintain their lifestyle.

In response to this dynamic, we created our Half-Retire program that includes the book Half-Retire: Keep Your Business, Ditch the Stress. We can now serve 60+ business owners with this program. The results have been astounding. Our data shows that an average business owner adds over a million dollars to their net worth by Half-Retiring.
