His second book, What Anyone Can Do: How Surrounding Yourself with the Right People Will Drive Change, Opportunity, and Personal Growth (2018), examined the power of enlisting and engaging the complete circle of the people who surround us in both formal and informal settings.

In the mid-1990s, he founded a public relations agency that a leading trade publication hailed as a regional powerhouse, new media pioneer, and great place to work. Leo earned a BA from Jacksonville University and an MA in Strategic Communication and Leadership from Seton Hall University, and he completed his doctoral coursework at Northeastern University.
