The Proven, Immersive Sales Experience

Cleinman Performance Partners is a unique business development consultancy working exclusively with private practice owner optometrists and their staff. We operate Cleinman Performance Network, a secure group of over 200 North American independent practices, with over 300 participating partners.

Cleinman Performance Partners and Cleinman Performance Network work in tandem to provide solutions for virtually any business issue faced by practice owners. Our peer-to-peer wisdom-sharing groups and proprietary benchmarking system position our practice partners to become better leaders and CEOs while driving to new heights of success.

We understand business is shaped by many things, including forces outside the practice walls. Work/life balance, marriage, natural disasters are all things that can play a part in disrupting normal business operations.

When doctors join the Cleinman Performance Network, they get the sense of community from the network of like-minded optometrists in our partner base, achieve connectivity by working together with other doctors to solve issues, and find intimacy from the long-lasting relationships that are formed while in the Network. The best names in optometry rely on us for guidance and support.


The Cleinman Performance Network is comprised of some of North America’s best and brightest private practice optometrists. They come together for wisdom sharing, strategic planning and education programs through a series of multiple, three-day meetings that are held throughout the year at different locations.


Every six months, these smaller peer-to-peer networking groups meet to explore solutions to problems while identifying underlying issues through our proprietary benchmarking system, which Al Cleinman introduced to the industry over 25 years ago.


During their time together, these groups get to know and trust each other. Some even become lifelong friends. They learn from each other’s wisdom and use what fits their brand. Group members also hold each other accountable to get things done. It’s a team effort that works towards a common goal — to succeed.
