I view sales productivity as a journey, and a never-ending one at that, because there are always new ideas emerging, changes in the market and advances in technology that can help boost results. (Just think about what LinkedIn and other such platforms have done over the last few years, for example. They have turned the networking and recruitment market on its head.)

Congratulations: You’re at the top of your organization or field. CEO, CFO, chairperson, award winner…

Most executives and high-achievers have a predictable narrative as to how they expect their journey to turn out, from moving up the ranks in their organizations to reaching a coveted position, often with a fancy title and all the perks it entails All the while, they push aside the little voice at the back of their mind saying,: “Nobody can stay at the top or in their dream position forever. Life changes. Businesses change. Retirement happens. Then what?”

Those who occupy the corner office know that expectations and opinions about WHAT should be done and HOW it should be done come from all directions. And while there is a wide variance in the “what’s” of CEO decision making, the “how’s” are delivered with surprising uniformity by CEOs across almost every industry. In particular, everyone expects those at the top to be confident, clear, concise, compelling, and consistent (the 5 C’s).

As companies seek a new strategic vision in a digital age, mergers are on the rise. Many of the mergers on the table are driven by the urgency to transform business strategy and gain scale. This is leading to the combination of companies with widely varying cultures. In this context, it’s no longer enough for company leaders to focus solely on the combination of finances and operations; they need to know how to best combine two (often very different) cultures, all while maintaining a strong company internal spirit in the wake of major changes. In fact, cultural integration was the second most common direct factor cited for deal failure by companies in Aon Hewitt’s Global Survey and has increasingly become recognized as a top issue in deal-making.

There was a Muppet character on Sesame Street who was an enthusiastic chef with such a strong Swedish accent you could not understand a single word he said.  His sketch appeared like a Julia Childs style cooking show.  My son was eight or nine at the time, and it made him laugh every time.  My late business partner was of Swedish heritage and from Minnesota.  He loved telling jokes about Minnesotans with Swedish accents.  While you could understand all his words, his accent sounded much like the Muppet character.
