As leaders in today's unprecedented time of disruption, we are being forced to make critical decisions based on fear and the unknown.

My guest today, Dave McKeown, is here to teach us how, you, as leaders can achieve your compelling vision. How you can strengthen communication and accountability plans even while facing evolving conditions in an environment where you have little control.

Dave is the Founder and CEO of Outfield Leadership, and author of the new book, The Self-Evolved Leader: Elevate Your Focus and Develop Your People in a World That Refuses to Slow Down.

In this podcast episode, Dave and I share insights on disruption and how leaders can focus on the short-term, high-impact goals to achieve long term vision.

Disruption has a way of bringing things into complete focus because we need to get things done with the fewest amount of resources. Organizations and leaders must ask the right questions, take a step back and look at what things they can to maintain alignment with revenue while adding value in that process.

When you get that right, that's when you get true alignment in your people, and in your teams because they can see a clear correlation between what they do every day and where your business is going.

Another great leadership strategy Dave shares is collective capabilities, bringing together everyone's collective consciousness and knowledge to increase the level of what we know, exponentially. This can be the difference between emerging from this event in a successful way with some momentum behind you, or emerging from this with a business that's no longer valid.

I'm excited for you to tune in to this compelling interview.

Here are some questions answered in this podcast.

  • What new leadership models are emerging during this unprecedented time of crisis?
  • What is the difference between bravery and heroic leadership?
  • How can a leader encourage collaboration across his teams in the midst of uncertainty?
  • How can leaders achieve more with less resources?
  • How does working with fewer resources bring clarity within an organization?
  • How do times of disruption present a significant opportunity for change within an organization?
  • Why is the decision making process more scalable when it's not dependent on only one individual?
  • How does using a collective capabilities' approach help navigate uncertainty more quickly?
  • Why is a good cultural fit' one of the greatest indicators of an employee's success within a company?
  • Emerging from this crisis, will there be a greater sense of humanity in leadership?
  • How can leaders shift their focus between short, medium and long-term goals?

On the show today, Margaret Heffernan, serial entrepreneur, author and named one of the “Top 100 Media Executives” by The Hollywood Reporter, shows us how globalization and pervasive communication technologies have moved our world from one that was complicated to one that is highly complex – and much less predictable.

To put it lightly, this change Impacts business where even small events can have a large impact. So, from a leadership perspective, how can you prepare for ‘how to think in this new emerging world?

Margaret and I answer this question, share stories and discuss how leaders can develop a robust, resilient mindset to create community – the center of success.

The recent pandemic has proven that this robust, resilient, and innovative thinking, and accepting complexity, is necessary for IT leaders to survive the unpredictability of this moment, tomorrow, and beyond.

You have to accept the cost of redundancy and work that may turn out to look like waste. But, once you accept that you can't predict this stuff, you are so much better off having it in your back pocket, than having nothing at all in your back pocket when disaster strikes.

Margaret Heffernan is the acclaimed author of six books. Her third book, Willful Blindness: Why We Ignore the Obvious at our Peril, was named one of the most important business books of the decade by the Financial Times.
She was also awarded the Transmission Prize for her next book, A Bigger Prize: Why Competition isn’t Everything and How We Do Better. Her TED talks have been seen by over eleven million people around the globe; and her new book, Uncharted: How to Map the Future, to be published in September 2020, looks at the many diverse reasons why complexity is here to stay.  

This is an amazingly relevant conversation that you just don’t want to miss!

Here are some of things that you will learn in this podcast episode:

  • Why is the world becoming harder to forecast?
  • What’s the difference between a complicated vs. a complex environment?
  • Why is it harder to lead in a complex world?
  • What will the strategic requirements be to restart your workforce?
  • What is ‘robust thinking’ and how does it relate to resilience?
  • Why is it so important for organizations to take care of, and cultivate their unique ecosystem?
  • Why is it important for organizations to remember that people are part of their infrastructure?
  • Is efficiency and ‘running lean’ always the best choice for an organization?
  • Why does IT understand redundancy better than other sectors?
