Companies of all sizes and across all industries are exploring new business models, developing new customer experiences, and experimenting with new selling channels and platforms. Focused on creating value in today’s business environment, these companies are leading the pack within their respective industries. In many cases, the first step is to simply reimagine your business model, break the mold, and come up with a better one.
If we’re seeking to reinvent ourselves we need to be prepared as leaders with the uncertainty that’s going to come along with this. The skepticism, with the fear.
Retired U.S. Army Major Generals, Robert W. Mixon, Jr., and John Batiste have been through this “re-imagination” process a number of times throughout their military and corporate careers. Both men served their country for over three decades in various military leadership roles before joining forces to co-found change management firm Level Five Associates.
In this 31 minute episode John, Robert, and I discuss:
- An innovation framework where you remove constraints
- How to think more globally and strategically
- Leaderships role in times of exponential change
- Driving change when there is an inherent resistance to change
- Balancing the need for results and risk
- How to cross the “line of departure” with confidence
- Does there need to be a wolf at the door to drive change
