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.
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.
Today’s show isn’t about partisan politics. It’s not a conversation intended to further the polarization within our country. Quite the contrary, it’s about the power of collaboration and all the benefits we may be missing in our collective failure to wake up and figure this out. Today’s topics include compassion, forgiveness, consideration, cooperation, and collaboration.
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.
