What Peer Advisory Groups Can Teach Us About Building High-Performing Teams. (2020)

Peer•no•va•tion (pir-n-v-shn) combines the words peer (people of like status) and innovation (creativity realized). It’s teamwork of the highest order.  

Leo Bottary follows up on his two earlier books about leveraging the power of peers in business and in life. With its roots in CEO and executive peer groups, the team-building framework presented in these pages is designed for leaders who want to coach engaged, adaptable, and higher-performing teams. Peernovation embraces lessons from more than a decade of academic research, fieldwork, and personal experiences throughout North America and the United Kingdom.

Whether you’re a team leader or team member, learn how to: 1) select the right people for your team; 2) create psychological safety; 3) inspire greater productivity; 4) build a positive culture of accountability; and, 5) become a better team leader.

If you believe “the power of we begins with me” and that meeting future challenges will require building the best teams possible, then Peernovation is for you.

Building on The Power of Peers, Bottary’s new book, Peernovation, takes proven concepts for CEO peer groups to higher levels of team insights and company performance. In a post-COVID world, and with the emergence of AI across even more industries, Peernovation reminds us of what doesn’t change – our humanity and our ability to collaborate and create. These will be the keys to thriving in the decades to come.”
