Beyond the Mirage

There is an acute shortage of strategic leaders in established companies

More than ever, organizations need dynamic strategic leaders who can think unconventionally beyond the boundaries of the ‚Äėcore business‚Äô and recognize nascent market signals in an era when organizations must look far afield to identify growth opportunities.

Drawing on Dr Kuhn’s ground-breaking research on strategic mindsets conducted at Columbia University, as well as his years of experience helping executives elevate their thinking and reinvent their businesses, Beyond the Mirage sheds light on the fundamental shifts in language, lens and mindset that are needed to cross the chasm from operational management to strategic leadership. Packed with dozens of real-world examples and uplifting leadership portraits, Beyond the Mirage offers generations of leaders a touchstone text that paints a compelling picture of what it means to think and lead strategically, and provides proven principals and tools for escaping the operational trap of today to create the growth of tomorrow.

The 31 Practices

Every company has its own values and brand which it wants its customers and clients to engage with and develop loyalty to.

At the same time, research shows that 70% of customers’ brand perception is determined by their experience with the company’s employees. Moreover, 41% of customers are loyal because of good employee attitude.

This book shows how companies can translate their values and brand into the daily practices and behaviour of their employees, especially those who must deal directly with customers. Drawing its principles from psychology, sociology, philosophy, neuroscience and leadership, the 31 Practices method has been successfully adopted by large and small companies around the world, and has been responsible for significantly enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Enabling Collaboration

As we are all aware, collaboration is ‚Äúthe name of the game‚ÄĚ in business and all kinds of organizations today. The world has become a complex web of interdependent actors‚ÄĒsome are competing, while others are learning to collaborate in new and innovative ways by establishing, strategic partnerships and establishing networks of ecosystem partners to create new opportunities, bring innovative products and services to market, continuously re-invent themselves and help solve some of the world‚Äôs most difficult problems. Those that collaborate in this way are entering new stages of formation and complexity through digital reinvention, ecosystem design, multi-stakeholder programs and social innovation. Because of the complexity of the collaboration, the number of actors involved and opportunities missed if no time is spent to innovate and co-create. More importantly, collaboration requires groups to get to know each other from a psychosocial perspective to build the collective muscle to communicate clearly and authentically, learn together and cut away what is not relevant for success. Once they have developed the collaboration structure, operating principles and values, social contracts and culture, they will have also built the collaboration capability to tackle the more difficult final negotiations pieces, not to mention the fact they know what is left to negotiate. It only makes sense that all businesses combinations that require collaboration have a concordant process and method to guide their success. Enabling Collaboration ‚Äď Achieving Success through Strategic Alliances and Partnerships provides practitioners interested in forming all kinds of collaborations a practical roadmap and methodology to do just that. Help create the structures, processes and opportunities that arise from collaborative approaches to organizational and societal success. Author:¬†Martin Echavarria¬†
