    I love chairingpeer groups as they are extremelypowerful [email protected] the curtains and givingus aglimpseintodeeperlevelsofteam-agilityandtalent-agility. There is nothing quite like the moment of

    truth in which the peer group team has created such a safe, transparent and trus9ng place in which an individual par9cipant can experience the beginnings of a shiC in their talent and taking their game to

    the next level. Best of all, the whole team learns from the experience, taking away value individually and collec9vely, even though they were processing another par9cipant’s issue, challenge or opportunity. It becomes a reliable, predictable and repe99ve cycle of win/win/win which spirals

    upwards, making new levels of talent-agility and team-agility possible.

    Thisbrandnewbookdescribesthispowerfulphenomenonandthe journeyfrompeer-influencetopeeradvantage–from ordinary levels of peer influence which the majority of teams might achieve to

    extraordinary depths of peer-advantage which only a minority of teams achieve.

    I am quoted in several places in the book.

    As well, I am a Vistage Speaker for our groups globally (20,000 members in 1000 groups in 17 countries represen9ng $300

    Billion in annual revenue and 1.8 Million employees) recognized as our community’s thought-leading expert on agility. Whether Chairing or Speaking, I help our members

    understand the link between peer-advantage and agility-advantage through team-agility and talent-agility.

    and teamwork for higher levels of talent-agility and team-agility at the core of their enterprise agility.

    As a result, I have seen par9cipants transform their leadership presence, how their leadership is perceived by their peers helping transform teamwork to the next level and transforming their careers

    with promo9ons and other opportuni9es.

    Not surprisingly, one of the [email protected]@oners of th is i s V [email protected] itself as a [email protected]

  • hours per employee annually, workplace surveys, financial investments in employee development, and

    how closely such development efforts are linked to business goals and objec9ves. This is the 5th 9me that Vistage has made the list.

    The other day I was Chairing a peer group of new Vistage employees as part of an all-employeetraininganddevelopmentday. I had never met the par9cipants before and they had never been in a

    peer group before, collec9vely or individually.

    Only 3 hours later (of our issue-processing/execu9ve-session format) they had moved from peer-

    influence to peer-advantage, evidenced by the way they described the impact of our 9me together at the end of the day, how their rela9onship as a cohort team had changed and how they individually had

    more courage and confidence to navigate issues, challenges and opportuni9es they face. Talent-agility and team-agility at the heart of enterprise-agility, with peer-advantage becoming agility-advantage.

    leveragetalent-agility,team-agilityandenterpriseagility,to go on the journey from ordinary levels of

    peer influence which the majority of teams might achieve to extraordinary depths of peer-advantage

    which only a minority of teams achieve. Indeed, we leverage Agile Peer Groups as part of our agile

    transforma9on process.
