Nine Ways a Peer Group Can Benefit Leaders
Access to a circle of high-level colleagues can help leaders grow
Effective leaders make a point of continually growing in both character and competency and working to maximize their effectiveness. They are high in self-awareness, understanding their strengths and weaknesses. They establish personal goals for growth and work towards achieving those goals.
One effective tool for growth is participation in a peer group. A strong peer group can help a leader recognize areas for growth and achieve goals. A peer group can be effective in overcoming some of the hurdles that a leader might face in going at it alone in the growth struggle.

The most important ingredient is the desire and willingness to have a positive impact on each other’s lives.
