Paul Leinwand and Matt Mani: Rethinking leadership beyond digital

Available on these channels and more

‘Digital transformation’ are big buzzwords in business. But digital initiatives alone are not enough to win in the marketplace — companies need to reimagine the compelling value they will offer and how they will create it in a differentiating way. Two senior partners from Strategy&, former colleagues and friends, set out seven leadership imperatives for transforming companies in the new digital era based on extensive research of 12 companies, including Philips, Microsoft and Adobe:

  1. Reimagine your company’s place in the world.
  2. Embrace and create value via ecosystems.
  3. Build a system of privileged insights with your customers.
  4. Make your organisation outcome-oriented.
  5. Invert the focus of your leadership team.
  6. Reinvent the social contract with your people.
  7. Disrupt your own leadership approach.

This is a stimulating, immersive discussion leaving you with a new manifesto for leading your organisation. They even say which one of the leadership archetypes they are! I always try to get to the personal side too, as you know.

The best bits of these conversations are captured in my newsletter Flashes+Sparks.
