What TEC Canada Members Say

John Flewelling, P.Eng., President / CEO CBCL Limited Consulting Engineers

“There are so many things you can take away from your Vistage experience that would take you an MBA or a PhD to get. But you get them, not in the context of a classroom, but in the context of real business people talking about having actually lived through this crisis or that situation.”

Dr. Patricia Lingley-Pottie

From the superb speakers, to dynamic counsel offered by my fellow CEOs, to the one-to-one sessions with my Chair — we have fundamentally changed how we run our business, manage our teams and drive learning throughout our organization.

Ana Fernandes, co-owner of Abrisuite Inc

I’ve learned how to delegate, build teams, create a winning culture and use sophisticated dashboards to understand the financials better. In the last three years, we’ve more than doubled staff, tripled revenue and created a solid infrastructure to grow from.

More Success Stories


TEC Canada is a leadership development organization that empowers and supports business leaders who in turn run successful companies and organizations, the backbone of Canada. We aim to build a community of trust and growth where we lift one another to reach goals and overcome obstacles.

The challenges facing Canadian business leaders are increasingly complex. It’s easy to feel overloaded with information, stretched and alone. Leaders are looking for a safe harbour where they can receive advice and support. TEC provides deeper insights that can make a real impact in your business, your career, and your life.

TEC offers six different types of peer advisory groups, each purpose-built for unique leadership levels, including CEOs, key executives, business owners and emerging leaders. We take great care to match you to the right peer group by considering your organizational size, stage of development and competitive landscape.

Leadership development programs aim to help business leaders navigate the challenges and complexities of running a business while aiding their growth as individuals and team leaders. We believe that learning is a lifelong pursuit, with no real end point. The benefits of joining one of our programs extend as far as you’re willing to take them. We focus on supporting members to grow in five specific ways:

  1. Helping business leaders make informed decisions in the high-stakes, fast-paced environment of business, maximizing their ROI and revenue, and enhancing their workplace culture.
  2. Holding each other accountable for the actionable steps we commit to. With accountability, we see our decisions through to the end, better ensuring our personal and professional success.
  3. Growing as leaders, not just as businesses. To see organizations grow and succeed, the leader must become the driving force behind that growth. Companies are extensions of the leaders that guide them.
  4. Coming together to break free from isolation. It is lonely at the top, you may not have any peers to rely on for support. That’s why we bring together non-competitive leaders from a variety of industries to share experiences, receive unbiased feedback, and address big-picture issues.
  5. Change is constant. With all these aforementioned avenues, continuing to uplift each other, our businesses, and the economy as we face ever-changing challenges.

All this is accomplished through the four primary components of TEC: Peer groups, one-to-one coaching, thought leadership, and our global network.

TEC Chairs are experienced professionals with multiple years of business experience in senior leadership roles, performance coaching, consulting, or successful entrepreneurship, looking to share their knowledge and give back to the Canadian business community. Beyond just CEO training, they are the mentors responsible for guiding and facilitating the peer groups, choosing speakers for the group, and giving individual advice in one-to-one meetings with their members.

One-to-one executive coaching matches you with a mentor (Chair) who challenges you and accelerates your ability to grow strategically and overcome hurdles. Digging deeper into your personal and professional challenges is critical to achieving high levels of success.

All our sessions (one-to-one, peer group meetings, speaker sessions) work together to ensure you get maximum benefit and growth for your organization and leadership development. For that reason, these offerings are combined in a package. Our KEY Executive program targeted at those second in command to the CEO/President/Owner follows the same peer group format with the option to add one-to-one sessions [click here for info on our KEY Program]

TEC members can attest to the success they have found by being a part of a TEC group. It’s far more than simply CEO leadership training. The key components of a TEC group work in harmony to provide the most up to date and comprehensive leadership development program in Canada. We are committed to providing each of our members with a personalized and optimized experience beyond their initial expectations through continuous learning, openness, individual accountability, and collective support. The results speak for themselves. To learn more about how TEC members have leveraged our proven method, visit our member stories here.
