As a Vistage Chair I get to focus
on two of my favorite passions…
developing better leaders and
driving better business performance.


Erik Larson

Our individual human journeys are most meaningful when we embrace the power of continued development and change – this commitment allows for more full expression of our personal potential and positive impact for others. Being a Chair both allows me to walk this journey for myself and to guide others as they create new boundaries for their professional and personal journeys.

Growth thrives when we look inward and challenge ourselves to question our “knowns”, leverage experiences and perspectives and learn from self-reflection and that of others’ to uncover blind spots, and ultimately, create better outcomes and life experiences.

Bernie Kerschbaum

Southeastern MI

Leaders create autonomy and make positive differences in their lives and the lives they touch.

Tapping into the experiences of others in a powerful group of like-minded peers can quickly transform your company, family, and community.
