What successful CEOs are saying about CEOS™
“I would highly recommend Joel’s class. It’s a very valuable opportunity for you to learn about tools for setting metrics, how to hire and retain talent, and assess your own skills as a CEO.”
CEO of HopZero
“I decided to take the American CEO course because I come from a family business and nobody teaches you how to be a CEO. Having a framework that is specific about what I should be doing with my time has been a game-changer for me.”
CEO of Motherlove
“I read Joel’s book. It found me at a very low point in my CEO career. We were growing incredibly fast and his book saved my sanity. I then got to hear him speak a few months ago at a conference and I knew that the course would be an incredible opportunity to not only work on myself, but to expose some of my strengths and weaknesses, and to develop tools that will be more effective in leading my company to greater heights and protecting our future. I think it’s especially important in economic times like this. Anyone can lead in a great environment. When it’s tougher, true leadership skills are tested.”
CEO of William Chris Vineyard
“This is an amazing course! I would recommend it to anyone who’s at any stage of their business to take it. There’s so much you can learn and so many opportunities to grow. My cohort includes both CEOs at the very infancy of growing into the CEO they want to become and others that are running multi-million dollar companies. What became very clear in our discussion is that we’re all growing because of this course. I believe it’s a real gift to be a part of a course like this.”
CEO of Imagly
“As CEOs and business owners, we’re being equipped with more than we can imagine. These three days are a mini MBA crash course.”
“This course is unique because it’s designed for CEO’s. I don’t think I’ve seen a playbook that covers the whole gambit.”
“Great experience. Joel Trammell has mastered what it takes to be a top-performing manager, and he knows how to deliver it to the classroom.”
CIO, Encierro Technologies
“Joel dives right into what is needed to have great management and leadership among your team and to make you and your company stand apart. This is the knowledge we've been needing to build great leaders—straight to the point, from people who have been in the seat.”
Paige Velasquez Budde
CEO and Partner, Zilker Media
“Joel Trammell highlights that being a CEO is a ‘difference in kind’ from other job responsibilities. It requires a special type of self-discipline, a special type of balance. Well worth reading.”
John A. Allison
President and CEO, the Cato Institute; retired chairman and CEO, BB&T
“Joel has hired more people in a year than many managers will in a career! Don't learn the hard way. Learn from Joel.”
Fundraising coach and host of the BetaBusiness podcast
“The CEO seminar was not only insightful and thought-provoking on leadership styles and successful business constructs; it also afforded a unique opportunity to interact with my peers across a variety of companies. I learned lessons I still refer to today in managing people and the culture of an organization.”
GM, Americas, Amazon Pay; former CEO, Movero Technology
“The CEO seminar was a great experience because it gives you a chance to step back from your day-to-day and think strategically with the help of Joel Trammell. I learned tactics that I now put into action every day.”
CEO, Storable; former CEO, SpareFoot
“Joel Trammell’s CEO seminar is a must, especially for any first-time CEOs. You will learn what to expect as a CEO and the ins and outs of building a powerful team through Joel’s real-life experience and candid feedback. You will also hear from and network with some of the more successful executive leaders in Austin. I pull from this experience with every challenge I face—especially the ones I never expected. Go do this!”
Owner, Harvest Rain; former CEO, Hyperwear
“Joel Trammell is the real deal, an entrepreneur and CEO who has seen it all. His book is lively, sensible, and rooted in inexperience. The CEO tightrope is a powerful metaphor for all managers trying to balance their way to success.”
Philip Delves Broughton
Author of The Art of the Sale and Ahead of the Curve: Two Years at Harvard Business School
“Yes, self-awareness is hard to come by. But starting with his 3C’s, Joel Trammell has managed to capture his own CEO success in a handbook full of insights and checklists, most of which ring true to me, while the rest are revelations.”
Ethernet inventor, 3Com founder, Polaris partner, UT Austin Professor of Innovation
What successful CEOs are saying about Sherif Sakr
“While I knew joining would be valuable, I underestimated just how invaluable the facilitator is to get the most out of each session. I believe of all the courses I have considered, Sherif’s was the best choice and largely because of his thoughtful orchestration of the cohort and my private sessions. I recommend him without hesitation.”
Former CEO, Apto
(Colorado Award-Winning Software Company)
“Insightful advice delivered with authentic compassion. Sherif has a rare combination of insightful advice delivered with authentic compassion. He has been a pragmatic, trusted advisor about running two companies I own…one I’ve run for over 20 years, and he’s my “go to” source for invaluable coaching on a recent business launch. Partner with him as an executive coach, hire him for expert advice…either way your life will be better for it.”
CEO, Airways360 and 180Marine
“Take your business to the next level. Throughout the years, I have relied heavily on the astute and out-of-the-box coaching of Sherif. If you are ready to take your business to the next level, hire him. You will be very glad you did.”
7th Degree TKD Black Belt
Black Belt Leadership
“I have worked with Sherif as a coach for over two years. In that time, the contribution he has made to my personal effectiveness has been noteworthy. My business results are up 15% and I have actually been working fewer hours than in prior quarters. Sherif has an easy-going style that can be a real contrast to my own. What I have learned from him is that oftentimes, a quieter, more focused approach can yield results that are far more to my liking (and my bank’s) than I was producing before I began working with Sherif as my coach. Would I recommend him? Absolutely!”
CEO, A J Professional Detailing, Inc.
“Precise clarity in a short amount of time...having worked with Sherif for the prior 19 months, the thing I value most is the precise clarity that he helps me achieve in a short period of time. His ability to help me unpack and declutter strategic business or emotional situations has enabled me to catapult my professional and personal life to the next level. I’m truly grateful for our partnership and look forward to growth over the next year.”
President, HEART Certified Auto Care
“Working with Sherif has helped me identify blind spots and has given me new perspectives for significantly growing my business. The cohort helps me be ‘on’ my business so I can be more of an owner than an operator.”
Owner, Artemis Vision (Engineering Company)
“I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to work with Sherif - both on a personal and professional level. I treasure our coaching sessions, and my day spent with other CEOs. While the commitment is big, the return is even bigger. The confidence, clarity and newly found perspectives due to these sessions are invaluable for any CEO that is striving to achieve the next level of success.”
