Leo & Randy On Coronavirus

Covid19 has created a level of global uncertainty that cuts to the heart of our collective humanity.  It seems like yesterday people were enjoying a great start to the new year.  Today, many are now wondering if they’ll survive – economically or physically.  Such a seismic shift in market, physical and emotional conditions is rocking the very foundation of our society.

Who you surround yourself matters. Especially now. As we distance socially from physical contact, it’s more important than ever that we remain connected.  We’ll get through this, but it will take all of us working together to make that happen.  Today, we talk about the importance and value of doing so.

For ideas on how you can lean on your peers and serve them at the same time, listen to our podcast.  If you have questions or ideas for us, contact us today.

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.
