Welcome to Peernovation the Podcast with Leo Bottary, and me, Randy Cantrell. Building on our previous shows (The Year of the Peer and What Anyone Can Do), we turn our attention to helping business leaders build higher-performing organizational work teams. We'll talk with a diverse group of thought leaders who will share stories and insights that will help you and your teams achieve new heights.  If you believe there is strength in numbers and that meeting the challenges of the future can only be achieved if we do it together, then join us for the conversation.
