The Arena

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man [or thankfully in the 21st century, the “woman”] who is actually in the Arena…”

- Theodore Roosevelt

In 2010 in London, I had lunch with a good friend who I consider to be a mentor. We ended up reflecting on some of the daunting challenges and resulting insights we had about the past year. As we were chatting, he observed that I was developing a very interesting and unique perspective from coaching and consulting with senior executives from 10 or so top global companies on any given day across many industries and continents.

He came up with an intriguing idea. He said, “You should figure out a forum for sharing and discussing some of your insights and learning with a very select audience – CEO’s and their senior teams.”

As I thought about it, I remembered what Teddy Roosevelt described in a speech over 100 years ago, which is the inspiration for The Arena.

The Arena

There are things that C-Level executives have seen from the “top of the house” which give them a perspective that few will ever experience or understand.

That’s why we’ve created THE ARENA – an exclusive forum where senior executives (and the HR, Talent Management, Learning, Executive and Organization Development leaders who support them) can read about insights, learning, case studies, best practices and cutting edge research in our core practices.
