Our mission is to help CEOs grow so their people and businesses prosper. 

Spending the past 20 years as a CEO, Leo Popik founded four multimillion-dollar businesses.

Throughout his journey, Leo has learned invaluable business leadership lessons — from both failures and successes — that taught him how to live a more purposeful life.


Leo founded Leading Peers for fellow chief executives to share insights and experiences, with gratitude and humility, in peer-to-peer relationships of reciprocated learning, trust, and respect.

"Choosing an entrepreneur and CEO lifestyle comes with indescribable feelings of freedom and purpose. It also evokes a strong sense of loneliness and stress when navigating the roadblocks, setbacks and personal sacrifices that come with business leadership. Leading Peers is designed to help passionate CEOs who are committed to building successful organizations and teams. Our goal is to provide the support and resources to help you grow throughout your unique leadership journey."

We expand our inherent talents and acquire new skills, cultivating spiritual growth, discipline, and perseverance to overcome obstacles. We remain curious and open to new ideas and welcome feedback and different perspectives.



We hold ourselves accountable to complete priority work, honor commitments, align our actions with our words, and strive for improvement in the priority pillars of our lives. We track our results and show up consistently, on time, prepared, and focused.


Meaningful Relationships

We cultivate meaningful and enduring relationships. We seek to build deep friendships to propel our success by sharing our best wisdom, connections, and advice with our colleagues and supporting those experiencing challenging times.
