Doing More with Teams: The New Way to Winning

There is something about teams that expands our experience of being human. Teams are more powerful than even the most brilliant individual. They extend our wings in very practical, pragmatic, and measurable ways. And when done right, this experience of teams makes all of us feel more humane, more competitive, and more contributory to a shared near future. Why is this?

Piasecki’s interactive lecture explores what the military now calls “shared actionable understanding.” He offers insights on engaging employees, putting the right people in the right jobs, hiring and nurturing the right captains, and getting teams unstuck and moving in the right direction. In an age when collaboration and innovation are everything, he insists, the ability to do more with teams is the issue of our time. Moreover, he looks critically at the concept of the “born leader” and how leadership can, through training and coaching, be instilled throughout an organization.

In a smaller more globalized world, what proves enough? Enough for your firm, in your nest egg, in your personal positioning for the near future? In an effort to better understand money and power in a globe bursting with seven billion people, this talk reflects on the importance of answering this question. This revitalized worldview proves the most satisfying way to wealth.

In this speech based on his 2012 New York Times bestseller, Doing More with Less, Piasecki involves the audience in the art of competitive frugality. Using Ben Franklin as a model of the new century professional, he outlines the values and results in being frugal, innovative, and diplomatic in our times of stress and severity. Not only does making the most of limited resources lead to business breakthroughs, it results in a richer, more fulfilling existence. It’s an approach to life that applies to every aspect of your relationships inside your family, your friends, and your firm.

In an overcrowded, carbon-constrained world, there is simply less to go around. Everything must go further, thus it must be used more frugally and wisely. Organizations that win will be those making decisions that take into account issues like urbanization, climate change, decreasing energy reserves, water scarcity, and more. Markets will reward corporate leaders who “get” the need for sustainability and use it as a competitive advantage. This talk delves into how to become one of them

Piasecki is known for his insights into a phenomenon he calls “social response capitalism.” Essentially, he explains, the world will more and more look to corporations rather than government to solve problems. Yet even as we center our competitiveness and position our products and services around this new role we must continue to deliver on the bottom line. Piasecki focuses this rousing discussion on some of the top executive leaders’ best practices in areas like corporate social responsibility, competing on sustainability, and corporate governance.

As competitors on the global stage we know winning is important. What we may not realize is that how we play is even more important. Consistently fair competition—which we balance between preparations, energy, resources, and a sense of the situation with our actions—is what earns us the long-term respect of customers, employees, investors, journalists, and others. In this talk Piasecki discusses the strategies and tactics that create the reputation we need to thrive long term. He helps the audience to understand this most ephemeral of things called “reputation” and why it is most valued when it lies in tatters. Understanding how reputation is bestowed and by whom is critical to success in a world of instant communication.
