Digital Relationships - From Luxury to Necessity
Strategy Visualization: Storytelling as a Pivotal Leadership Competency
Crisis Leadership - Be Believed, Before You're Believed-In
In these unprecedented times, when we can't physically meet, how do you engage and influence others through your digital relationships? How can you pivot all that you were able to do in-person, to virtual meetings, using webcams and digital whiteboards? Nour wrote about Return on Impact, at the nexus of leadership strategies and digital relationships a decade ago. This session is a fresh look at best practices in engaging one-on-one or one-to-many online.
Sentiment Analysis in Post-Virus Rebound
Did you know that astute investors use sentiment analysis of public company earnings call to measure, and with a high degree of confidence, predict the company's future performance? What if the same technique applied to the believability, credibility, and forward-thinking of your current performance, agile and immediate pivot based on available market information, and post-crisis rebound?
Your strategy became irrelevant when COVID-19 became a global pandemic. Digital audiences no longer have the patience for death by PowerPoint, outdated information, confusing corporate jargon, or hard-to-grasp theoretical concepts. No wonder organizations struggle to pivot their strategies. But there’s a better way – visual stories told clearly, concisely with the ability to cascade, can get your entire team/organization aligned quickly.
Adaptive Innovation Powered by Speed and Agility
Create a sustainable competitive advantage, develop a relationship-centric culture, and dare to fail with the ability to learn from those failures. Grow market value faster than your competitors, help your channel partners differentiate your unique products or services, and shake up your value chain. It sounds difficult; Nour makes it simple and straightforward via signal scouts, faint market signals, and an accelerated pilot/prototype process.
Board stewardship, or lack thereof, is all over the news. In today’s turbulent markets, forward-thinking boards must both govern the present and invent the governance models of their organization’s future. Beyond risk mitigation, governance in the future of work is also about risk optimization. Amid the current crisis, many board members and leadership teams finally have a direct line of sight to how woefully unprepared their organizations are for the accelerated pace of this global pandemic.
If you've ever tackled a key challenge or an opportunity, only to find out half-way there that there is no one following you, you understand that crisis leadership is all about relationships. From a foundation of trust to clarity of the message, and the authenticity of the messenger, the likely leader, must be believed before she/he can be believed-in. You want others to follow you through the current crisis? Let's take a closer look at the depth and breadth of your strategic relationships amid the crisis and the ten attributes of your brand.

RETURN ON IMPACT
Leadership Strategies For The Age of Connected Relationships
Return on Impact isn’t about Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. It’s about socially enabling organizations to listen louder, think faster, and respond to changing market dynamics, helping them reinvent, adapt, and relate in new and powerful ways.
David discusses how SMAC (Social, Mobile, Analytics, and Cloud) is swinging the power pendulum in the direction of members and customers, leaving many industries and organizations out of the equation, and how you can get the most return on your business interactions, involvement, image, and impact.
