Rod Johnson of Growing your Leaders has successfully facilitated numerous peer learning groups over 10 years by always innovating and pondering how to improve the impact of each meeting, and the performance of each participant. 



Learning from others is a dynamic resource every leader should recognize, embrace, and leverage. The knowledge, wisdom, and insight you need can be just a conversation away. Leadership Peer Group gives you an impactful way to invest in your emerging leaders. Peer Insight is the perfect tool for connecting the content in a formal training program with the context of how to use it in your career. The development of soft skills tends to be a challenging development initiative, especially among those with a hard skills mindset. Fortunately, the Peer Insight methodology is up to the task and is highly effective. For instance, David Rock of the NeuroLeadership Institute stated: 

The active ingredient to large-scale behavior change is facilitating insight in social situations over time. Research points to the importance of the three-step process of seeing something different in a social setting, having an insight about that behavior, and making these types of connections over time. Insight to action causes change. If you have those insights and discuss them in a social setting, you are more likely to want to change.
