Special Guest: Jeff Spahn: President of Leading Leaders Inc.
Jeff Spahn is a pioneer in leadership forging a new, evolved theory and practice of leading that meets today’s challenges and opportunities. With more than 20 years at the helm of Leading Leaders Inc., Jeff has drawn on his hands-on research and business leadership expertise to develop a proven process that transforms complexity into innovation and optimal business outcomes. He inspires leaders to move beyond the industrial-age concept of collaboration (aka co-labor), reimagine traditional leadership hierarchies, and embrace an innovative process for leading and following at the same time, in the same action—a seismic shift designed for the unique demands of the digital age.
Why is this evolution so critical? The industrial age was characterized by the individual inventor and mass labor, so prioritizing co-labor made sense. But in our disruptive digital age, more and more people must create and invent together, which requires a focus on co-creation. Though the term “collaboration” is often used in the context of leading high-performance teams, Jeff views it as antiquated language that represents the limits of our thinking and habits.
