Resilience Examples from IT and Consulting Leaders

May 24, 2021 | Hot Mess Hotline Podcast, Resilience

Diversity is strength. Strength resilience. You need resilience examples to be successful in the years ahead.

This episode is a replay of an IT panel that I moderated in April 2021 with successful IT leaders who also have remarkably diverse perspectives of this world and in their companies.

IT leaders and consultants will be responsible for ever-increasing results because of the rate of change during the pandemic: our adoption of technology advanced 10 years in just 10 months.

Also those companies who can’t attract, retain, and develop candidates with minority identities stand to lose out, BIG TIME. Listen in for compelling business research that demonstrates the link between profit and diversity in the C-suite.

This episode is for any leader who wants to take the lessons learned from 2020 and re-think how to approach diversity in IT or re-think how to think about work.

What’s the Difference Between Orientation and Onboarding?

What’s the Difference Between Orientation and Onboarding? And why does it matter? With turnover and retention being very painful and expensive problems (especially right now!), leaders need every tool at their disposal to help the right people stay. Onboarding is an incredibly powerful tool and we have the stats to back it up!!

Plus it’s not really about the expense, it’s about welcoming people into your culture, showing them a good time, giving them the tools and information to be successful, connecting them to their colleagues, and demonstrating that you want them to be successful in their role.

Hot Messes Make You a Stronger Leader with Jerry Jones

Stronger leaders are made through multiple hot messes. Jerry Jones, former president of Cannon IV, shares his decisionmaking, sleepless nights, and strategy pivots during some tumultuous times. In this Hot Mess Hotline episode, he shares how 50% of their revenue evaporated in 90 days because of a supplier’s switch in sales strategy.

This episode is powerful for those leaders who feel fatigued by change or have teams who are complaining about too much change. “Why can’t things just go back to normal?” When change is forced upon your team because of external factors, there is no going back to normal. There’s a new reality which forces new ways of working and new needed results.
