Leo & Randy On Conferences

Leo was recently asked to pinch hit as a keynote speaker at a conference in San Diego for a highly specialized audience.  Realizing his “power of peers” message had little to do with what the conference was all about, he understood it had everything to do with why they were there – to learn, connect and grow.  This inspired him to create a new keynote titled, Maximizing the Value of Your Conference Experience.  During our conversation today, we talk about how to tap into the greatest resource at these kind of events – your fellow attendees.

We also touch on the Washington Nationals sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals and the value of the special people who make a difference in our lives.

Leo & Randy On CEOs and Peers

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.

Leo & Randy On Leading Teams

Today’s show reflects on two questions Leo posed in a recent CEO World article.

Do you consider yourself a part of the team? Or do you think of yourself as apart from it?

If you’re a CEO or leader, bravely answer these questions. Seeing your proper role within the context of the team may lead to quantum leap performances for your team.

Leo & Randy On Peernovation

On today’s show, we make a BIG announcement!

Leo is launching Peernovation, LLC. You can read the full press release here at Yahoo! Finance.

Peernovation will address two major challenges for companies today: 1) The lack of ROI for employee learning and development programs; and, 2) the problem of alignment and employee engagement when implementing strategic initiatives. Bottary, who will serve as managing partner, will be joined by peer advantage group facilitator and podcaster, Randy Cantrell.

And…

Peernovation will also assist organizations that assemble and facilitate peer groups for business leaders by helping members maximize their collaborative experiences to achieve more impactful outcomes.  Bottary added, “When business leaders participate in high performing peer groups, they tend to be more adept at understanding the power of peers and creating more collaborative environments at their companies.”
