Act

April 11th, 2011  |  Published in Act, godeeper

Announcement: ACT

Instinctively, we know that we must ACT to make things happen. What we don’t know instinctively is how and when to do so.

How do we create an environment that scouts for ideas and translates them into action?

We test our premises, propositions, and prototypes. We reach out and we engage those in our midst and outside our immediate realm. We seek to understand triggers, causes and effects, and other elements that reside deep beneath the surface.

What’s more, we embrace change and the forces around us. For they keep us honest, alert, and adept to edge closer to derive the full power of THAP.

China is one of the largest countries in the world, so it’s no surprise that its most internationally recognized brand, Alibaba, does things big.

 

Alibaba started as a domestic company with global ambitions, and it has become a runaway success story since setting the record for the largest initial public offering in history. It’s run by a man whose dedication to a cause bigger than himself has poised Alibaba to revolutionize China’s e-commerce, banking, and insurance industries — not to mention, expand its global operations.

Why Companies Need a Chief Reason Officer

The world is changing faster now than ever before, and if companies don’t react quickly and effectively to those changes, they’re destined to fall by the wayside. One way corporations can keep ahead of the curve is by installing a Chief Reason Officer (CRO), or so says Luis Gallardo, a global brand and marketing leader and author of the just-published book Brands and Rousers.

Mass Marketing in a Global Economy is Dead: Prove You Can Personalize

Our global consciousness is growing. Whether it’s the Syrian uprising covered 24/7 on CNN or protests in Iran arranged via Twitter, traditional as well as new media forms — along with the myriad devices we use to get connected — ensure that our need for constant access is being met.

 

Furthermore, thanks largely to Facebook, there are only 4.5 degrees of separation between any two people anywhere on the planet. With the world continuing to proverbially shrink, is it really any surprise that today’s consumers crave a personalized touch more than ever before? Everything from smartphones to Twitter points to us being as interconnected as possible. Translation: we want people (and in this case, yes, companies are people, too) to know who we are.

Five Things You Can Do to Get to the Next Level

Next Level Luis GallardoLuis Gallardo, Author of Brands & Rousers.The Holistic System to Foster High-Performing Businesses, Brands and Careers.

 

Previously posted @ Under30CEO

 

Successful businesses have one thing in common: They change, and they change well. But while change is necessary, volatility can make or break a company in today’s tumultuous business world.

Previously posted @ Employer Branding Revolution

 

In recent decades, several themes have shaped business life as a whole and executives’ thinking in particular. These issues include the rise of technology and its impact both on what customers want and what business can achieve. Interestingly, history suggests that the impact of technology is often over-estimated in the short-term and under-estimated in the long-term.

Leading in Turbulent Times. Where is the full picture?

 

Luis Gallardo, Author of Brands & Rousers. The Holistic System to Foster High-Performing Businesses, Brands and Careers.

 

 

There are two things we can say for certain about the future: it will be different, and it will surprise. Given the competitiveness of global and local markets, the pace of change in business and the sudden emergence of unprecedented challenges and opportunities, there is an overriding need for leadership that is flexible, capable, and dynamic. If there is one lesson for organizations from the events of the late 20th Century and the first decade of the 21st it is this: it is not simply what we know that matters, but how we react to what we do not know.
