Last week I ran a workshop with eighty of Coupa’s most senior client executives from North America. We spent two and half hours during the afternoon of day one, of Coupa’s INSP!RE event, in a tailored workshop completing a workbook to provide these executives with a fresh, focused perspective.
Here is some of what we discussed.
How to frame difficult conversations as a walk in the woods rather than a confrontation
Uncovering why no value-adding work continues within organisations, and how to evolve people’s mindsets
How every strategy generally consists of - a foundational element - a simplicity objective - and innovating for future horizons. A very useful framework if you are acting up in a role
Where and how to involve all employees in creating the future based on their capability and expertise
Why any digital business must have a point of differentiation and consider the market maturity before scaling
2022 is likely to involve an element of simplicity as suppliers are integrated within a secure cyber environment
The six components of leading people post-pandemic; beginning with issues that matter to them and the importance of living what you say
How to land memorable messaging by respecting the past, assessing the present and inspiring the future
Why team traits are the key to them succeeding in the most challenging of times
How to ask curious rather than challenging questions resulting in deeper relationships
What components contribute to a leader’s positive state of mind
The importance of casual conversations and always seeking feedback
The session was received exceptionally well, with the Coupa Executive Insight program receiving a 93.6% NPS score. Plus we received some wonderful comments like this one ...
