New IBM CSuite Study – Flourishing in an era of continuous disruption

November 10, 2015

I am loving the new C Suite study on flourishing in this world of disruption!  Here’s my favorite top AHAs from the study!


Prepare for digital invaders: Competitors are emerging to digitally disrupt business models and re-shape industries. Airbnb, Fitbit and Uber exemplify the new digital invaders and “ankle-biters” – focused competitors with the lethal combination of no legacy costs and the superior value to rapidly amass market share.

New competitors also are emerging through industry convergence, with traditional boundaries eroding as expertise from one sector is applied to another – for example, defense contractor Lockheed Martin partnering to develop personalized health and wellness solutions. C-suite executives see this trend rising above all others in the next three to five years.

Create a panoramic perspective: All business strategy is technology strategy. Most C-suite executives interviewed believe cloud computing, mobile solutions, the Internet of Things and cognitive computing will dominate the strategic business agenda in the near future with the confluence of these different technologies holding the greatest promise.

Be first, be best, or be nowhere: To create differentiation, C-suite executives are experimenting with alternative business models, collaborating across industries or exploring a new customer base./

Back to school! Note in a lunch box – Is Twitter your note to your followers?

August 31, 2015

When school starts, and I pack my kid’s lunches, I always finish them off with a special note to encourage them in the day.

For instance, with my youngest Kassie I did a bunch of K’s that I think are special for her!

  • K is for Kisses!
  • K is for Krazy special — for the special girl that you are!
  • K is for Kind – be kind to your friends today — for they are precious!


My kids say that it is a moment in the day — among hard work, getting teased, and questioning their confidence — that they pause to know that someone really cares for them!

As I was thinking about how my oldest daughter carefully folds and saves each note, I wondered how much we all need that encouragement.

  • How could I place a “virtual note in each of my team’s lunch box” ?
  • What would it say?
  • Would they appreciate it like my kids?
  • And what would I want my note to say if someone left one for me!

But then I thought — do we do this each day — through Twitter?  For instance, when I share quotes or welcome the beautiful sunrise, is that the same?

Is that the new form of the lunch box note?

What do you think?
