Transformational Leadership

Each year, the 8-month season begins in October and runs through May. We meet on the second Friday of each month at the Hyatt Lodge in Oak Brook, Illinois. Membership to the Club is open throughout the year and expires one year from the time of registration.

Hear some of the nation’s leading executives reflect on:

  • What was the hardest decision you ever had to make in the workplace, and what principles guided you in your decision-making?
  • What types of compromises/sacrifices have you made to get where you are today? Was it worth it? Any regrets?
  • Have you ever had to lead an initiative when your heart’s just not in it or you don’t believe in it?
  • How did you become you?! What do you read? How do you set goals? What’s your top priority?

Become a Business Member and Join the Executive Council

Executive Council

The Executive Council is an advisory think tank composed of top executives of prominent and emerging companies in Chicago’s western suburbs and beyond.

With the purchase of a Business Membership or a higher-level membership, a company or individual is qualified to join the Council at five exclusive meetings throughout the year, plus at any additional special events and workshops.

The Executive Council discusses the events, the speakers, and the overall experience of the Club and explores opportunities for the Club to continue to succeed and grow. It is responsible for identifying and securing speakers for each season and for promotion of the Club.

Companies looking to invest in the growth of their executives and team members can greatly benefit by having those persons join the Executive Council because the Council offers a significant personal and business development-rich environment that is essential for leadership development. It is a warm, supportive, and intelligent environment built by ethical, passionate, and experienced CEOs and leaders.


Since its founding in 1967, more than 50,000 executives have been addressed by more than 300 special guests, including U.S. Presidents, Cabinet Secretaries, White House Advisors, Fortune 500 CEOs, best-selling authors, celebrities and Hall of Fame athletes.
