THE CIRCLE has been created specifically for business leaders who feel the pressures of running a growing organization. It is for these leaders who have few, if any, people in their lives to who they can turn to. Specifically, people who will offer advice, or simply listen. Those who will share from experience but most importantly, those who understand the unique pressures you face because they too are leaders who are facing similar challenges.
This organization was developed to fill the gaps in the traditional approach to business groups and masterminds. Don’t think of this as a networking group—by joining, you are gaining your own board of advisors. These advisors are led by a facilitator who has not only successfully exited three success businesses, but also possesses a strong academic background which allows him to coach high-level business leaders, like you. The processes we employ are effective, not only in the workplace, but at home. Our program works on the whole person, not just the business side of you.
A new opportunity for business leaders that fall within our criteria to have a reliable sounding board.
- If you are looking for a group of seasoned professionals to challenge your assumptions and provide real-world expertise to your ideas.
- If you are open to the group’s collective wisdom and experience shares.
- If you are willing to be open, honest, and go deep into the issues you are facing, and are seeking a strong and proven executive coach.
- If you are interested in learning new concepts from proven subject matter experts.
…then, THE CIRCLE may be for you.
This group is limited to 10 members who must be approved not only by the facilitator but by the group itself.
The focus of this opportunity is growth—professional and personal. It combines the best elements you may find in EO, YPO, Vistage, and Franklin Covey or MBA programs. In addition, you will also receive regular individual one-on-one interactive sessions with a coach many have labeled as a Business Therapist.

WHY THE CIRCLE?
Working with Scott is an exercise in opposites. Scott has the ability to hold the hard-driving business interests in mind at the same time that he holds a deep care for people from the CEO down to the janitor. His capacity to do this has revealed so many insights. I have found his perspective to be invaluable for my own growth and that of my business.
Through Scott De Long’s coaching, I have gained invaluable insights, developed new perspectives, and honed my skills in effective communication, decision-making, and inspiring others—he has been instrumental in my growth as a leader. I am grateful for the transformation I have experienced, and the opportunity to share Scott’s expertise with my fellow leaders and witness the collective growth within our organization.
