Take 90 Minutes

Now more than ever, you need to stop putting out fires and work on preventing them. The pandemic has pushed your leadership skills and business model. You don’t have to chart your next path alone. John Lake (JDLake Business Partners) guides local, small to mid-sized business leaders on what healthy looks like. Through small-group meetings, these non-competing business leaders build their own support network. 

Through a partnership with Engage Greater La Crosse, we’re offering a special introductory meeting to just 24 people for just $25 (a $150 value).  


The Executive Network forces me to work on my business. As a result, I can spot opportunities and issues in my company that need addressing. I enjoy the group sessions with fellow business owners where we have candid and confidential conversations that result in hearing alternative solutions to our thought process, resulting in a more comprehensive approach than had I tried to run my business alone. My company is stronger as a result of the Executive Network.

Working with John Lake over the last three years as part of the Executive Network has enabled me to bring focus and perspective to my job. John’s ability to ask the right and sometimes difficult question has allowed our company to increase our market share, social presence, and to affirm we have the right people in certain leadership roles.

One of the things I enjoy with the Executive Network is the exchange of ideas with other non-competing businesses. I have found it beneficial for myself and others in the group to dissect issues we all face and come up with some creative solutions. I would encourage anyone that wants to work on their business instead of in their business to work with John Lake.
