The Clark Leadership Difference

Empowering Business Growth and Success

Does your Business own you?

Do you “own your business” or does your “business own you”, and how do I transition from the first to the latter?

How do you Create Culture?

How do you create a culture of ownership, or a new culture?

Feeling Isolated?

Do you feel isolated and unable to discuss business with your close associates and friends?

Struggling with Delays?

How can I handle/mitigate sales delays, cycle delays, etc. and the impact on my business  and cash flow?

Clark Leadership Message

The Clark Leadership Difference

Does this sound like you?

  • You know there must be a better way of doing things.

  • You want to do the right thing for your people and the direction of the company.

  • You have a business coach, or mentor, yet your growth has stalled, and you don’t know what you are missing.

And now you want real CHANGE, you want RESULTS, you want to grow to the NEXT LEVEL.

Why is this happening?

Leaders are not taught to be leaders.

Business owners and C-level executives learn to advance using strategies and tactics that have proven successful for others.  True leaders grow their authentic leadership abilities through self-evaluation and self-improvement and tackling the big issues that are holding them back.  And success follows.

Clark Leadership

Peer Advisory Groups

A Clark Leadership Group is an exclusive, intimate space where business issues, and sometimes personal issues that are affecting the business, are discussed within the confidence of the group. It’s a place that’s safe to acknowledge what you don’t know…what you’re struggling with…what keeps you up at night.

Your Leadership Group is a place where you will be constantly challenged, and fully supported by your peers and by your Clark Leadership Facilitator. It’s a place where you can learn to take yourself and your business to the next level by going deeper, gaining (or regaining) momentum—and breaking through.

Clark Leadership Difference Discussion
Growth Mindset

Learning Approach

In Clark Leadership, you not only learn from your peers, you also learn from discussion topics focused on the three pillars of growth:

  • Self-Awareness
  • Business Growth
  • Growing Your Team

Why This Matters

You don’t have to walk the path of a leader alone.

Real growth comes through being challenged, being held accountable and learning from your peers.

You can become the leader you’ve always wanted to be and grow your company as you’ve dreamed.

The Clark Leadership Difference

Clark Leadership is ideal for you if:

  • You’re frustrated with your performance as a leader.
  • You can’t motivate your team to reach a goal.
  • People aren’t fully engaged.
  • You want to learn what it is you don’t know.

Clark Leadership is not for you if:

  • You are planning an exit in the very near future.
  • You’re not motivated to achieve greater growth.
  • You’re not concerned about financial improvements in your company.
  • You’re not willing to fully observe and address the person in the mirror.
  • You have it all figured out.


Are the meetings in-person or virtual?2023-05-09T13:45:25-04:00

The majority of our groups are virtual.  With the pandemic, we all learned that effective meetings can occur virtually and the benefits gained far offset the lack of in-person contact.  We have one group that continues to meet in-person as requested by the group members.  However, virtual meetings open up the audience of potential members and with that groups gain the diversity, experience and insights found across the country, and potentially the world.

What happens if you outgrow the group?2023-05-09T13:45:35-04:00

No matter how successful you become, there is always another level of growth… and another obstacle in your way.  From “solo-preneurs” to executives of Fortune-500 organizations, leadership is filled with challenges that Clark Leadership can help you navigate and support.  We offer different level peer groups that are geared to rising leaders of an organization, business owners past the start-up phase but still working “in the business” and not “on the business”, to CEOs of small/mid-sized companies in excess of 100 employees and/or annual revenues in excess of $40M.


How long do people stay as members?2023-05-09T13:45:45-04:00

Clark Leadership clients in our peer groups are truly loyal to their fellow group members.  Once a rapport and trust has been established within a group, members eagerly support each other and rely on that support.  As such, members continue in Clark Leadership peer groups for years.  Any turnover a group experiences is primarily due to changes in a member’s business role, sales of a company and the like. As such, as a new member to a group, you must give the experience time to “gel”, developing rapport and trust with your fellow members.

What is “issue processing”?2023-05-09T13:45:53-04:00

Issue processing is a proven approach to gain clarity and possible solutions to a challenge or opportunity.  Taken from the book, “Fierce Conversations” by Susan Scott, a member describes the issue in detail and expresses the help they want from the group.  The group then asks clarifying questions and finally provides recommendations.  Many times insights are achieved more from clarifying questions than from recommendations, ergo the power of the process.

What is a typical agenda for a group meeting?2023-05-09T13:46:06-04:00

Group meetings have three main components.  First, members share a check-in to update the group on where they are in their business and personal life.  Then, there is a leadership “learning topic” which focuses on three pillars of leadership — self-awareness, company growth and growing your team.  And finally, the facilitator uses the Socratic method to lead issue processing, whereby members gain insights from the group on specific challenges and opportunities.

Before the meeting, your facilitator will send an agenda and at times, learning topic materials to review before the meeting. You should spend time before the meeting to form a challenge or opportunity you want to discuss with the group, because the group is your space to process through your high-priority business issues. The value of the group is to learn from the different perspectives each member has on any topic. Discussion by the group around your needs is also foundational to the group.

How often does your group meet?2023-05-09T13:46:14-04:00

Groups generally meet once a month on the same day/time throughout the year with time off during the summer.

What is the experience of your facilitators?2023-05-09T13:46:21-04:00

Clark Leadership facilitators all have extensive experience running businesses of varying sizes and complexities.  The wisdom and insights they have gained from these experiences are what they share with our members – they’ve “been there, done that”.   In addition, you can expect your facilitator to constantly challenge and fully support each group member.

Is this an educational program with a set curriculum?2023-05-09T13:46:32-04:00

No, this is a member driven process where the group members help guide and direct the flow of learning, discovery, and discussions.  Each group has a core foundation of topics they can cover, however current events, economics, and group members’ concerns are what primarily drive the group meetings.

Are the groups industry specific or not?2023-05-09T13:46:39-04:00

In general, group members come from across all industries.  We do, however, ensure that no two members in a group are from the same industry as we don’t want competitors in one group. Competitors and trust don’t go together – and we’re all about developing trust.

What’s the difference between Clark Leadership Peer groups and Mastermind groups?2023-05-09T13:46:46-04:00

Our peer groups are facilitated by professionals who have many years of experience as business owners and executives.  Unlike mastermind groups, Clark Leadership teaches leadership topics that spark meaningful conversation in a supportive, collaborative learning environment. This is a place for business leaders to think strategically about their business and to get practical advice on tactics to improve execution.
