Running a business has never been more challenging. You can achieve a new level of success with peer advice, executive coaching and our proven management system. We guarantee it.


The Alternative Board Business Success Model

Board Meetings - Peer Feedback

TAB members from around the San Francisco Bay Area help one another by sharing their experience, success, and yes, even their failures. Group Board meetings provide a supportive environment that triggers ideas, offers diverse perspectives, and builds confidence. Board members guide one another to make better business decisions and to stay on track.

Executive Coaching - Business Advice

Our highly experienced, certified facilitators provide executive business coaching that help members prepare for the monthly Board meeting. Sometimes we'll need to deal with a critical business problem but the sessions are designed to keep members focused on specific actions required to develop and implement their long-term strategy for success.

Management System - Knowledge, Tools, Processes

TAB's proven system includes a suite of business tools designed to help you assess, plan, manage and control your business to produce sustainable results. Some examples include our Monthly Progress Report (MPR), business planning template(s) and Vantage our proprietary on line-business diagnostic. We also conduct a series of workshops, seminars and webinars on various business topics at no charge to members.

Create culture of disciplined people committed to a singular, unifying purpose / vision. Culture should center around freedom and responsibility, not an overly bureaucratic system.
