    What Dialog Does? 

    As people experience a new way of connecting across difference, they become better equipped and committed to building relationships and exploring new possibilities together.

    They are willing and able to have the conversations that matter most.

    Over time, we see that as communication habits shift, people begin to trust each other enough to come together, even in difficult moments. When that happens, people feel a greater sense of belonging to their community and trust that others – even those of different opinions, backgrounds or ideologies – are committed to helping their community thrive.

    Strategists Do Not Seek to Beat The Competition… 

    Instead, they aim to make the competition irrelevant. Most organizations are stuck in the trap of competing. Having accepted the industry structure as a given, executives proceed to benchmark their rivals and focus on outperforming them to achieve a competitive advantage.

    But focusing on building a competitive advantage has an unintended and deeply ironic effect because it leads to imitative, not innovative, approaches to the market.

    A critical point to grasp!

      Toward or away from—each of us has a different driver of intrinsic motivation.  Some of us are motivated primarily by what we might gain from a situation.

    We’re goal driven, pulled toward opportunities and an outcome.

    This “toward” motivation is often about external rewards—money, success,  fame, material possessions. But it can also be about internal rewards, such as honouring your values, having the impact you want in the world, rising to a challenge, or gaining control over a situation.

    Some of us, on the other hand, are motivated by what we will avoid if we achieve our goals.

    Again, that can be externally driven (not being told off by your boss, not disappointing the team) or it can be internally driven (not stepping on your values, not breaking a promise).

    For instance, when my wife and I think about going out to dinner, I’m driven by a “toward” motivation, whereas she’s driven by an “away from” motivation. I  want a nice meal, but I most want to go somewhere new and different because  I’m motivated to have a new experience and try new foods.

    She wants a nice meal, too, but she most wants to avoid a mediocre (or worse) experience and for that reason tends to want to return to familiar and trusted restaurants. (Sometimes we make it out the door.

    And sometimes we just end up cooking dinner at home.)

    Growing Leaders… 

    The most successful companies don’t recruit leaders. They grow their own.

    A leadership shortage is one of the biggest barriers to growth at companies around the world. In fact, developing new leaders is the No. 1 talent challenge facing organizations worldwide, with 86 percent of companies rating it as “urgent” or “important.”

    Do you believe that the performance of your leaders has a massive impact on your bottom line?

    Most executives instinctively know that strong leadership is essential for overall organizational success. However, in most organisations, there is a lack of urgency to improve leadership skills driven by a belief that an organization’s current leadership capacity — and subsequent performance — is good enough. But is it?

    Why Succession Planning fails! 

    If succession planning works, how do the wrong people so often get to the top?

    Succession planning was once the key to identifying potential leaders to fill important positions. However, in today’s rapidly evolving business world traditional succession planning is no longer a viable strategy with research showing that 70% of succession plans fail within two years, simply from lack of management support.
    In a climate of growing skills shortages and lack of confidence in leadership potential, how can we develop practical solutions which align employee ambitions and business priorities to ensure that organizations have the right leadership in place for ongoing success?
