about this item

Birds of a feather flock together. We're all in the same boat. Great minds think alike. While just figures of speech to some, they reflect a simple truth our relationships with our peers fundamentally impact our success and happiness. We have the ability to lift each other up, hold one another at bay, or drag each other down. It is the company we keep that helps define our success and growth.Business leaders exchange information and ideas. They network to make deals and build partnerships. They work together to optimize best practices, and they reach out to leaders outside their companies to accelerate growth. In their new book, Leon Shapiro and Leo Bottary introduce this concept of peer advantage, which expands upon the familiar concept of peer influence. In so doing it shows leaders how to be selective about the company they keep and how this in turn can bring tremendous value. It’s what top, growth-oriented executives have relied upon for decades to be successful in business and in life: the power of peers.The Power of Peers features stories of business leaders from a range of industries to highlight the five essential factors for peer advantage and helps readers discover how it impacts personal growth, is employed to solve complex global challenges, and why it has proven so effective in helping leaders identify the opportunities and challenges that lay ahead. Best of all, leveraging the power of peers emboldens them with the courage to act.
