People often ask me “how have you seen the early acceleration of so many work trends?” I look for patterns and symmetry…the signal within the noise. Here’s a recent example I think is noteworthy: The Conference Board released its C-Suite 2022 Outlook entitled “Reset and Reimagine” that noted CEOs expect “Leading in a New World of […]
Recently, I was a guest on CyberTheory’s “Cybersecurity Unplugged” podcast where I shared my perspectives on “How to Approach the Reality of Remote Work,” including: How we’re still unwinding the ramifications of the pandemic’s almost overnight shift to remote work and the rapid adoption of new technology most of us had not been using How […]
An outstanding story from Marketplace economics reporter Sabri Ben-Achour, “Two Years into the Pandemic, What is Work?” I joined Brian Kropp, head of Gartner’s HR practice, and Paul Statham, CEO of Condeco, to provide perspective. “But when companies bring workers back to the office, be it for one day or all days, they have to answer a question: Why?

Yesterday, the U.S. posted 1 million new cases of COVID. That’s twice the number from just four days ago, and it’s the most any country has ever reported, according to Bloomberg. The next few weeks will likely become even more challenging, especially for parents–moms and dads–and the managers who employ them. I share my thoughts […]
Welcome to 2022! The year I believe leaders, line managers, teams and individual employees have the opportunity to come together and ask: “What’s best about the way we worked then, pre-pandemic?” “What’s best about the way we’ve been working now?” “What’s the best way we can work next?” Then execute that vision of high performance […]

Alex is a Professor of Finance at the London Business School and the Academic Director of the Centre for Corporate Governance. He graduated from Oxford University and then worked for Morgan Stanley in investment banking in London. He was on the […]
THE PIE-GROW MODEL: ESG, EMPLOYEE SATISFACTION and FLEXIBILITY For years, the economic ecosystem—analysts, shareholders, corporate leaders, and board members—have assumed the value a company creates through its products and services is fixed. Senior leaders have been reluctant to embrace corporate responsibility, fearful that doing so would just transfer some of the “pie” from shareholders to others. Leading finance […]
This exchange during a recent LinkedIn Live discussion hosted by Robert Shrimsley of the Financial Times perfectly illustrates the current state of flexible, hybrid execution in organizations. Leaders are grappling with how to navigate the very real tension between what people want and how to operate their business in a flexible dynamic way that achieves performance AND well-being. At minute 27, […]
I love music. And I love seeing my favorite artists live. In 2017, U2 (my favorite band) played at the Meadowlands as part of their Joshua Tree tour (my favorite album of theirs). The last three times they played the Meadowlands prior, I had been there and it was amazing. But in 2017, I was […]
I’m consistently asked this question: how do we communicate most effectively as we transition to working across different onsite and remote workplaces and spaces?
