If you’ve ever listened to the announcers at a sporting event, I am sure you’ve heard the following statement made time and time again. The statement refers to the team’s sudden change of play. The intensity has changed to passiveness. The aggressive play that got them the lead is no longer present. They got too comfortable.

Preparing to be interviewed by a North American journalist in the U.S. or Canada? While the top source of interview preparation material is still past media coverage, today’s journalists are getting the jump on their executive interviewees by studying their social media profiles. In a survey of 50 journalists around North America, 80 percent will browse an executive’s LinkedIn profile before an interview, followed closely by their Twitter and Facebook pages.

 

We recently conducted a survey that showed that executives’ knowledge of their company and market is more important in an interview than their personality, although not by much.

Predictions for the sales of wearables remain very strong. Fourteen million devices were shipped in 2011, with the market predicted to reach $6 billion by 2016. Perhaps the most anticipated wearable device, ever – the Apple Watch – officially launched last month, and if early sales are any indication, it has the potential to flip the marketplace on its head. Companies are jumping on the bandwagon, finding new ways to put wellness directly into the hands of consumers by issuing devices to employees, giving them a means of tracking their own fitness.

The true leadership challenge in a world that changes faster every day PDF Print E-mail

To secure long-term survival in a complex and volatile world you need to develop an organization with the ability to collectively adapt and continuously improve as one synchronized entity. Better information technology and more efficient structures for keeping daily efforts aligned with long-term goals won’t be enough.

 

Acting as one requires thinking as one. In strong organizational cultures people instinctively react properly to change. We find proof of this at IKEA, The Walt Disney Co. — known for hiring individuals who exhibit behaviors that align with the company’s values — and Toyota, whose agility helped them reclaim the title of the world’s largest automaker only seven months after two huge major setbacks (an earthquake disrupting production and a historic recall). Most attempts to copy the desired traits of these companies fail; only 2 percent of improvement initiatives inspired by Toyota achieved expected results, according to an IndustryWeek survey.
