Experiences shape leadership ideas and life satisfaction.  Bold experiences lead to better results.  CEO Experience (CXP) partners with CEOs and Christian leaders to help them to have robust and amazing leadership experiences that help them to learn faster so they can lead further.

Self Awareness Always Precedes Self Improvement.

We help leaders focus on Great Leadership Experiences that can help them lead at the highest level.  Primarily we offer 5 Experiences that can change how a leader sees themselves and how they lead others.

Private Retreat Experiences

These are one on one experiences with a coach and a peer.  We remember the words of mentors and guides who can share with us their experiences so we don’t have to repeat their mistakes and we can model their successes.

Peer Retreat Experiences

These are full-day gatherings where CEOs come together each month with a team of CEOs to celebrate wins and focus on self-improvement and strategic planning.  We learn better when we learn with others.

Strategy Retreat Experiences

These are quarterly experiences where CEOs go off-site for one to five days to focus on crucial areas that they need to master to lead better.  These excursions are filled with special moments that are memorable and lasting.

Vision Retreat Experiences

These are uniquely prepared executive guides that CEOs and leaders can review in their own setting to gain clarity and understanding of business processes and personal process improvement.    These guides are delivered on a monthly basis and are designed with experience questions and win activities that can lead to breakthroughs.

Team Retreat Experiences

These experiences are focused on a leader and their team so that a leader can share with their team key concepts and insights to help the organization improve.  When teams get better, organizations get better.

The Experience Story of our Founder

I have had the fortune to have many life-changing experiences.  Every experience has taught me something about how to lead at a higher level.  What I learned from my experiences was that great leadership wasn’t about knowledge, but instead, it was about experiences.

A few of the experiences that have shaped my life have been:

  1. I failed in business multiple times, but I learned that what you do after you fail is more important than your failures.
  2. I lost all of my money, but I learned how to rebuild and restart.
  3. People closest to me have rejected me, but I learned how to invest in people because you need others to succeed.
  4. I was recognized at the top of my field, but I learned that outside accolades mean little when internally you feel like a failure.
  5. I have earned educational degrees, but I learned that the most important lessons in life could not be discovered in the classroom.
  6. I have traveled all over the world, but I learned that the most important discovery is to see yourself leading at the highest level.
  7. I have spoken in front of thousands of people in seminars, trainings, events, and retreats but I learned that the most important person that you talk to is yourself.
  8. I have a son who could not speak for many years, and I learned that every person has abilities that they don’t recognize until someone pulls it out of them.
  9. I read thousands of books and spend many hours in study of business and peak performance, but I have learned that the secrets to success in life and business are found in the Bible.

When I recognized the value of experience, I decided to form CEO Experience to help leaders have experiences that can change their life and their business.  You can read more about my story here.

Timely but Timeless – CEO Experience seeks to build the CXP CEO Executive Retreat Guide and the CEO Retreat in a timely but timeless fashion. Each retreat is designed to discuss what is currently happening in the marketplace or the business world. Plus, it is done through a lens of timeless truths proven to work in every generation and every location. This principle is why CEO Experience promises never to repeat a guide but instead provide new content that is current for the marketplace. Retreats will use methods such as biblical case studies, CEO interviews, assessments, tools, and best ideas from the past.

Consistent but Creative – Each CEO Retreat will have standard processes and concepts guiding the participant through the experience. Plus, the content will be developed in creative methods so that no retreat day or guide will ever be the same.

Business Focused but Biblically Tested – The CEO retreat has a business focus and will discuss a business application that provides a business benefit for every CEO and business owner. Plus, the CEO retreats and the Executive Retreat Guide will be tested against biblical concepts and principles. Each guide will explore a biblical business principle and an area of the business.

Inspirational but Informative – CEO Retreats and the CEO Executive Retreat Guide is written to encourage and inspire the CEO. Many leaders feel like they are not enough or don’t know what to do. CEO Experience believes that the CEO has the answers but needs a place to inspire their best thinking to achieve a breakthrough in business and life. Plus, the CEO Retreat is developed with the value of generating best ideas and discussing practical business information that can be applied to any business to help it grow with Kingdom Impact.

Collective but Individualistic – The CXP Executive Retreat Guide is one part personal and business journal and one part business magazine. The guide is filled with Experience Questions, Win Activities, Writing Blocks, and CEO Tools so that the business owner has a place to capture their best thoughts and the best ideas of others. Plus, the guide is filled with information applicable to both blue-collar and white-collar businesses, solopreneurs, and firms with many employees. CEO Experience believes every leader is essential and valuable and that all leaders can strive to hear the words “Well Done!”
