Some Big Technology & Retail Trends: Do you Know Your Stuff?

This video on the future of technology companies and the trends in retail really is worth a look. OK he speaks at 100 miles per hour but if you pause it and watch it several times the research around what he is talking about starts to sink in! I have shown it to several clients as they look to review and build their strategy and it has totally changed their outlook.

How to Get Good: Focus on What You Do

I have recently spent a lot of time with our clients. In particular really listening to understand what they expect from us. We officially launched the Executive Leadership Programme.  This programme is already becoming a significant part of their business. In a little over six months we have 26 CEOs and five “Emerging Leadership development teams” on the programme.

Over the last week I spent a long time with my friend and meet with John Spence. I’ve worked with him  as he delivered workshops to my senior team, a large event at the Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch and within a number of CEO leadership forums.

Reinforced to me: you become like those you spend time with and what you focus on.  It’s not about what great ideas you have it’s about what you execute and actually do.

The secret to success is extreme focus & being excellent what you do.

Note to self: do more of that!
