The first phase of any organizational transition is the entrance of a new leader. Depending on positioning, new leadership poses both leader and subordinate group significant challenge; where organizational behavior, culture, and individual psychology all contribute to the outcome. Much like playing chess, competitive advantage is the result of making strategic moves on a board. Positioning will make or break your game.
When the pressure is on, say executive leaders, the best way to tackle a scenario is through positioning. Often a central topic within merger and acquisition discussions that engage both leadership and market risk, the positioning is essential to exceeding competitor performance.
Securing one’s position against defeat, says the Art of War, without hesitation or compromise is the decision of the individual. Power has many masks. The most effective and efficient method of conquering the enemy is to lay in wait.
This program focuses on how leaders avoid mistakes while prospering at the expense of the competition. Rivals often reveal their weaknesses. By leaving a window of opportunity for them to exhibit their true characteristics, it is easier to overtake them in the final round.
Host Richard Valdemar, a specialist in organized crime, discusses how powerful leaders rise to the top. Guests Bruce Cohen, Michael Dukakis, Larry Flynt, Garry Kasparov, and Stan Shih participate in the conversation on positioning for success. Part of The Mind of a Leader 2, the video tackles one of the most critical topics in global business.Securing Your Position: The Mind of a Leader 2
