Chief executive officers, business owners and other top-level executives who join peer advisory groups can learn from their compatriots’ experience and may not feel as “lonely at the top.” Consultants Leon Shapiro and Leo Bottary show CEOs how joining a peer advisory group can help high-level leaders grow personally and professionally. In any industry, CEOs face common problems in HR, finance, marketing, and more. Having a sounding board of high-ranking industry peers aids troubleshooting. This three-part volume explains the power of “peer advantage,” the best ways to foster it and the factors that make a CEO peer advisory group successful. At times, Shapiro and Bottary use meaningless buzzwords – such as “optimize” or “accelerate.” And their advocacy openly stems from their leadership of an executive peer-group consultancy. However, reciprocal peer support at the highest corporate levels makes sense. getAbstract recommends this anecdotal manual as fresh meat for top dogs who want to join a pack.
