Tina Corner is a Remarkable Woman living in the DC area. She is the founder of LX Council, a company that specializes in coordinating Peer Advisory Groups for C-Suite Executives and Owners around the country. She has a passion for helping owners find that place where they can share their struggles in a safe environment for constructive feedback and encouragement.
Tina shares her career story of how she started Leadership Exchange Council after growing and selling a franchise of peer advisory groups geared more toward closely held firm owners. Growing up on a farm in rural Missouri herself, and watching her dad being in charge of his own destiny gave her great inspiration to chart her own path as well.
Tina shared how most owners feel pretty alone. They are always giving out – to employees and to vendors, etc, but they need ways to receive new energy for themselves. When they come to the Peer Advisory Group meetings, they can know that they are not alone, and they do not feel judged. They benefit most when they can be honest and real, as they will receive the greatest clarity.
As a business owner, I was fascinated and inspired by our whole conversation. I have come to personally see the value in seeking out other business owners as peer advisors who are not even necessarily in my industry. We share common experiences and appreciate the insights and perspective gleaned from each other.
Listen in to our Podcast to hear about one of the obstacles Tina faced and overcame within her career. She learned an important lesson about “Speaking Up” for her own value in a way that was well-received. She had an executive advisor who coached her through the process, and proved to be invaluable.
Tina’s personal mission is quite inspiring:
“Seize each day in developing my own potential and developing the potential in others.”
She does this by seeking knowledge and motivation regularly through reading Business Publications like Success Magazine, the Harvard Business Review, and the Podcast MWF Motivation, in addition to listening to the stories and struggles of her own clients. She learns a great deal from them and loves seeing them benefit from connecting with other peers.
Tina has written a book, Sit Down! Speak Up! Cash In! Which shares more about the value of Peer Advisory groups. You can find it on her website and also find other articles and info from Tina via LinkedIn. She would love to connect with you.
