Leadership Exchange: Peer-to-Peer Insights.

In today’s fast-paced business environment, leaders face enormous pressure and need to look outside their organizations for new approaches and solutions to their business challenges. They want to know what’s working in the real world for organizations like their own, right now.

Yet, executives have limited time and energy to sift through books and other media, network outside their industry or attend multi-day conferences. More than ever, they need better avenues to exchange ideas, share approaches and gain perspectives with peers at other organizations and in other industries so that they can both learn and lead more effectively.

Introducing Leadership Exchange

Next Step Partners is honored to work with executives at leading Bay Area organizations such as Genentech, Google and the David and Lucille Packard Foundation.

Leadership Exchange connects an elite group of Bay Area leaders with their peers to share perspectives and strategies on current and emerging business challenges in an intimate, confidential, non-competitive environment.

Future Leadership Exchange events will be hosted by member organizations and facilitated by Next Step Partners. In keeping with executive schedules, most events are local and no more than a half day. Attendance is by invitation only and limited to ensure the quality of interactions.
