With the rise of digital technology, business moves at unprecedented speeds, now an exponential pace. This pace is wreaking havoc on the business landscape as we know it. Disruption has brought “too big to fail” companies to their knees in a matter of months. It has made some industries obsolete.Any company or leader that doesn’t move at an exponential pace will be crushed by the new, massively transformative exponential organizations. These organizations are quickly expanding their purpose and invading new industries every day. Guides like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and more continue to provide us a road map for navigating the exponential horizon.
Through a collection of ten keys of exponential leadership, authors Aaron Bare and Forbes Shannon have created a formula to navigate the disruption. Exponential leadership–combined with emerging technologies, change, and disruption–will not only disrupt the world but will save it.
It is time for a new generation of leadership. A leader that is purposeful, conscious, digital, and above all, exponential. Join us for a journey to re-imagine innovation.
