On this episode of the What Anyone Can Do podcast, Leo and Randy talk about preparing for the new year. The conversation begins with a look at a recent article Leo wrote titled, Three Truths of CEO Communication for 2020.
Today we discuss Leo’s latest CEO WORLD Magazine article entitled, Peer Advantage And Why CEOs Should Care About It. Previous Vistage CEO Rafael Pastor crafted an accountability model for CEOs to illustrate the powerful resource of empathetic accountability found in a peer advisory group. The Power Of Peers, co-authored by Leon Shapiro and Leo Bottary includes that model.
Let’s talk about learning groups. From graduate level classroom experiences, where Leo first gained deeper insights into peer advantage, to groups of CEOs and key executives – group members can leverage the power of collaboration to enhance and increase their learning.
Leo returned from a 12-day trip, front-loaded with work in Oslo, Norway, but ended with a vacation on a barge in France. Today’s show is about the value of stepping away to relax, reflect and rejuvenate, and how leaders and followers alike can make vacation work harder for them! Enjoy the show!
Today, Leo and Randy discuss working together. This conversation was prompted by Leo’s upcoming trip to Oslo, Norway where he’ll speak, then serve on a panel discussion at the Executive Growth Alliance.

Leo’s books – The Power of Peers and What Anyone Can Do
Leo wrote a piece for CEOWORLD Magazine titled, How Great CEOs Maximize Peer Relationships. Today, we talk about the natural progression of business relationships and how we engage with others: we connect, network, optimize and accelerate.
Whether we’re part of a team or a group, we can all learn how to take greater advantage of our opportunities with others. That’s the point of the work we do at Peernovation and it’s the point of this podcast – doing the things anyone can do, but the things most of us never will.
People are training hard for it. There’s a goal with a deadline. Everybody shares the deadline and everyone is setting their own goals. It’s the 2019 Cabo Olympics slated for late October. Watch or listen to today’s show and we’ll explain.
