• NEW! Leadership Peer Advisory Group (LPAG)

    None of us is as smart as all of us.

    Now more than ever, leaders need a circle of allies to support them in their journeys.

    Whether you are an executive, business owner, government director, unit lead or senior HR professional, you face incredible challenges in your professional role -- especially during this time of uncertainty and disruption. Advantage C is pleased to offer a Leadership Peer Advisory Group (LPAG) opportunity for community leaders serious about investing in their professional and organizational growth.

    What is a Leadership Peer Advisory Group?

    Picture a select group of high-achievers, like you, who come together on a regular basis to discuss business challenges, give support, solve problems and achieve goals together. Interactions are structured, confidential and supported by a skilled facilitator. Different from a networking or local business group, a peer advisory group includes hand-selected individuals from your internal organization OR from a cross-section of diverse organizations to ensure no competing businesses or vendor/client relationships.

    Finally, a safe and structured forum to engage with a respected group of peers who know what it’s like to be you!
