The Book “The new consumers are not linear. They are scattered. They are squiggly. They are connected—not only to one another, but also to the world—and their connectivity and engagement are highly untethered.” “Many of the emotions and values that didn’t belong in the boardroom have now become central to a new business model for success.” “…future will be less about brands that just tell a good story than it is about those that are transparent, credible, and have something unique and different for their consumers.” The DNA of business has changed. Forever. You can blame technology, smartphones, social media, online shopping and everything else, but nothing changes this reality: we are in a moment of business purgatory…the time has come to CTRL ALT DELETE. To reboot and to start re-building your business model. If you don’t, Joel warns, not only will your company begin to slide backwards, but you may find yourself unemployable within five years.

Tribal Leadership

Tribal Leadership

The Book “…a company is only as strong as the culture of its tribe.” “…many mergers fail because analysts and executives do not consider values and culture but rather think only about compatibility of business models and balance sheets.” “If core values are the fuel of a tribe, a noble cause is the direction where it’s headed. A core values are what we “stand in” and a noble cause is what we “shoot for.” In Tribal Leadership, Dave Logan, John King, and Halee Fischer-Wright show corporate leaders how to first assess their company’s tribal culture and then raise their companies’ tribes to unprecedented heights of success…the success of a company depends on its tribes, the strength of its tribes is determined by the tribal culture, and a thriving corporate culture can be established by an effective tribal leader.

Conscious Business

Conscious Business

The Book “Our attention is normally drawn to that which we can see (the effect), which obscures the importance of what remains hidden (the cause).” “In the long term, the virtuous pursuit of excellence achieves more real success than the unbridled pursuit of success.” “Whereas success tends to focus on the local subsystem and the short term, integrity focuses on the systemic long-term consequences.” Consciousness is the main source of organizational greatness. Conscious business, explains Fred Kofman, means finding your passion and expressing your essential values through your work. A conscious business seeks to promote the intelligent pursuit of happiness in all its stakeholders. The Author Author’s tweets...

Flat Army

Author’s tweets @dpontefract: [divider] The Book “If the C-Suite is looking for ROI, leaders need not prove it by return on investment, but by return on intelligence, by return on innovation and by return on ideas.” “We are a version of organizational learned helplessness. Maybe organizations simply are tools. Maybe they’re simply about making money or providing service or making products in the most efficient manner without regard for its people. Maybe there is no chance for humanity in the organization.” “Many for-profit organizations—but not all—are an economic orthodoxy of control, power and profit. People are secondary. The workers actually take away from the profit of the organization itself.” Arms you with powerful tools for overcoming resistance to change and creating a culture of collaboration, engagement, and employee empowerment. Your people are your most valuable asset, and if you want them to excel (and your profits to soar), you’ll need to abandon your traditional command-and-control management style and adopt a collaborative, open leadership approach—one that engages and empowers your people.

Outside In

The Book “Competitive barriers of the past—manufacturing strength, distribution power, information mastery—can’t save companies today. One by one, each of these corporate investments have been commoditized.” “Customer experience correlates to loyalty.” “…finding people whose values and personalities match your target culture is often easier than changing the underlying beliefs of current employees.” Customer experience is, quite simply, how your customers perceive their every interaction with your company. It’s a fundamental business driver…In an age when customers have access to vast amounts of data about your company and its competitors, customer experience is the only sustainable source of competitive advantage.

Icarus Deception

Icarus Deception

Author’s tweets @ThisIsSethsBlog: [divider] The Book “Creating ideas that spread and connecting the disconnected are the two pillars of our new society, and both of them require the posture of the artist.” “The connection revolution is shuffling the deck and enabling new organizations and new ideas to thrive. The industrial age, the one that established our schooling, our workday, our economy, and our expectations, is dying.” “Scarcity is the dominant driver of the industrial age. Scarce resources, scarce machines, scarce labor, and scarce shelf space. The connection economy thrives on abundance. Connection creates more connection. Trust creates more trust. Ideas create more ideas.” Everyone knows that Icarus’s father made him wings and told him not to fly too close to the sun; he ignored the warning and plunged to his doom. The lesson: Play it safe. Listen to the experts. It was the perfect propaganda for the industrial economy. What boss wouldn’t want employees to believe that obedience and conformity are the keys to success? The safety zone has moved. Conformity no longer leads to comfort. But the good news is that creativity is scarce and more valuable than ever. So is choosing to do something unpredictable and brave: Make art…It’s a hunger to seize new ground, make connections, and work without a map.
