“I met Leo Bottary online when I was looking to strengthen my inner circle with the best leaders in the peer-to-peer industry. I couldn’t stop until I finished the last page of his book, The Power of Peers. Some weeks later, we (CEO World and ANJE) invited him to come to Porto to deliver an incredible talk about Peer Advantage and participate in two peer group sessions. Leo is definitely a peer evangelist, always willing to support his peers to grow every single day.”

— Miguel Dias, Founder and CEO of CEO World

Kellogg School of Management

Since the announcement of The Power of Peers book launch earlier this year, Leo has presented to academic and business audiences alike, engaging students at the prestigious Northwestern University (Kellogg) and University of Chicago (Booth) business schools, as well as working with the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and with a group of amazing entrepreneurs at the ANJE Conference.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

Below you’ll find descriptions for a one-hour keynote, a two-hour workshop for CEOs and business leaders who wish to bring peer advantage inside their organization, and a three-hour assessment exercise where Leo works directly with peer advisory/mastermind groups and executive leadership teams to drive even higher group/team performance.

1 – Keynote

Leo’s one-hour keynote, Who You Surround Yourself With Matters, is customized for every audience to assure they receive maximum take home value!

There are thousands of books on leadership, hundreds on followership, and relatively little information available in the business and education arenas about the importance and value of the people who stand beside you. Peer influence is something you’ve experienced your whole life, yet too few people give it a second thought.   Imagine if you gave it a second thought. Consider what would be possible for you if you were more selective, strategic and structured about the way you engage your peers.

Subjects covered include:

  • The pervasive nature of peer influence
  • The four ways we engage our peers
  • The difference between garden-variety peer influence and peer advantage
  • The five factors that make peer advantage possible
  • The value of case clinics and triads
  • A framework for improving collaboration and team/group performance

Participants will leave with a solid understanding of what peer advantage can mean for themselves and their organizations.

2 – CEO/Business Leader Workshop

This two-hour workshop, Bringing Peer Advantage Inside Your Organization, draws a great deal of content from the keynote and also includes a second hour of large and small group exercises designed to harness the power of the peers in the room so they can identify opportunities that will inspire higher performing teams within their organizations.  Workshop participants will leave with a better understanding of how to access the power of their peers personally, while providing them with tools they can share with their employees.

3 – Self Assessment Program

Leo directs a highly interactive, three-hour self-assessment workshop, called Harnessing Peer Advantage to Your Advantage, for CEO Peer Advisory Groups or Executive Leadership Teams.  Using the five factors for peer advantage helps a group identify gaps that are impacting higher performance and create an action plan that inspires an even higher standard of excellence going forward.

Outcomes include:

  • Rallying group/team members to be even higher-performing
  • Bringing the members together behind a common goal
  • Providing valuable input to the Group Leader or CEO
  • Identifying gaps that will help move collaboration from good to great
  • Creating an action plan for group/team excellence

Participants will be inspired with a new sense of “team” and obtain the tools to harness peer advantage to their collective advantage.
