About The Alternative Board

TAB Boards consist of presidents, CEOs, owners and managing partners of privately owned businesses. The boards of up to 10 members each meet monthly under the guidance of a TAB-Certified Facilitator/Coach. Board members also receive monthly one-on-one hour-long private coaching sessions from their facilitator/coach. Because no one lays claim to the member's business, the result is no-holds-barred feedback and a sounding board for best business practices.

A thorough training process was developed for TAB-Certified Facilitators/SBL-Certified Coaches. Each facilitator/coach has extensive top-level business management experience and many have active consulting practices. Facilitators serve as executive coaches, guiding members through planning and development processes and moderating boards.

More than 200 TAB-Certified Facilitators/Coaches now conduct monthly board meetings across the United States, Canada and South America. Since its inception, thousands of businesses have benefited from the TAB process.

Company History

As president and part owner of an electronics firm, TAB Founder & CEO, Allen Fishman, guided his organization from a private to a public company. Once his company went public, Fishman found he received business advice, ideas and motivation from his board of directors—guidance that was lacking for owners of privately held businesses.

After an early retirement from the company, he began developing the "board of directors" concept into The Alternative Board, established in 1990. Today, Fishman still facilitates the first TAB Board, with many of its original members from over a decade ago.

TAB eventually moved its home base to Denver in 1994 and began expanding across the United States, Canada and South America. Since its inception, thousands of businesses have benefited from the TAB process.
