The Bella Vista Program

 

The Leadership Vistas Bella Vista program is a forum for entrepreneurial executives, small business owners and leaders at the top of $2M to $20M organizations interested in developing an informal Advisory Board type of relationship with other influential women business leaders.

Refer to Alta Vista / Bella Vista Membership Criteria for more detail on membership qualifications.

Format

With an average chapter size of 10 to 12 members, the Bella Vista program provides an intimate environment for top level executives to make strategic contacts and promote business growth through strategic dialog with recognized thought-leaders, subject matter experts and other entrepreneurial business women. Building on the Grande Vista and Magna Vista programs, the Bella Vista program explores the fundamentals of "better thinking" about systems, processes, organizations and the interactions of people. Through interactive mentoring, executives will learn and think together to develop strategies that will take their organizations and their careers to the top of their respective industries.

Each monthly chapter meeting will include a conversation with a business expert or C-level executive who will share innovative ideas, lessons learned and strategies to develop seamless organizations that can better learn together, think together and thrive. A typical Bella Vista chapter meeting will:

  • Start with a review of recently applied learning
  • Segue to a thought-provoking conversation with a guest executive or subject matter expert
  • Explore a critical business issue
  • Connect each member at more strategic levels.

Topics

Topics will include important leadership challenges that reflect issues that members are facing. Examples of topics covered by Bella Vista chapters include:

  • Communication Styles
  • Hiring and Managing Talent
  • Effective Decision Making
  • Developing Business Goals and Accountability Strategies
  • Hats of the Manager, Coach, and Leader
  • The Art of Delegation
  • Mastering Infinite-Win Leadership
  • Managing Growth: Buy, Sell, Step Aside
  • Values-based Leadership
  • Managing Brand Reputation
  • Organizational Wellness: Moving from Good to Great
  • Successful Business Development

Over time, each Bella Vista chapter will cover many topics and will approach issues from a variety of aspects. With conversations led by a variety of experts, dialogs will take new directions, with deeper exploration and more enriching insights shared among the members. Renewing Bella Vista members will likely never experience a repetition of topics.
