Dear Friends,

We hope your Summer was restorative and renewing. 

Welcome to the September newsletter curating important and emerging resources in the leadership field worth reading, watching or listening to. We remain committed to continuing and advancing the discourse in transformational leadership among our clients, alliance partners, and practitioners globally.

To that end, you can find the latest edition of our magazine for transformational professionals, the Mobius Strip, which serves as a companion to the June 2017 Gathering of the Next Practice Institute we just hosted.

We look forward to shortly sharing with you the line-up of next year's gathering which will take place in October 2018.

Warmest best,

Lessons In Disruption

“Whatever the business, there are disrupters and the disrupted.”

Building on the work of Harvard Business School Professor, Clayton Christensen, this fascinating report from The Economist and EY digs out a series of findings worth sharing, including:

  • Older consumers are more disruptive than millennials and even technology itself.
  • The single most important action to foster an innovative culture? Articulate a clear organizational purpose.
  • Plus what we can learn from the Fintech, Health and Energy sectors.

Where to find more...

We are delighted to have featured an excerpt from Clayton Christensen's The Innovator's Solution in the Fall 2013 Mobius Strip. We also recommend this 2-minute video from HBR on the innovator's dilemma in a nutshell.
