Exceptional CEOs Accomplish More in Less Time


Your Time 

Is Currency

Are you investing in the highest leverage places?

Many CEOs spend their time working harder than necessary, which leaves them feeling exhausted, lonely and questioning if they’re still doing enough. This doesn’t have to be your story. After years of research and coaching, we’ve discovered top-performing CEOs have a shared, counterintuitive trait. They achieve more in less time. In essence, they’re busy finding ways to be lazy – and we’ve uncovered their secrets.


Benefits of


The Inc. CEO Project is a coaching and peer advisory group that puts into practice the principles and strategies of the book Great CEOs are Lazy, by best-selling author, speaker and CEO advisor Jim Schleckser.

We’re also affiliated with the Inc. organization that publishes Inc. Magazine. When you join one of our peer groups, you get more than social hours and seminars. You get honest, practical advice on how to add value to your company and manage predictable transitions of growth – while having a life outside of work. And you’re joining a community of growth-oriented leaders.
