Guest: Gary Patterson
Gary has been writing and presenting on board room black holes and taboos based on his research with National Association of Directors (NACD) and the Conference Board of Canada. During this show, we will talk about Gary’s top 5 issues and why executives and board members need to be thinking about these high impact topics. His goal is to help leaders find blind spots before they blind side you. This discussion focuses on the top five black holes and taboos that emerged during his research: 1. Where do you make money? 2. Change – the world is changing – how quickly should your organization change? 3. Overly optimistic financial and procedures and processes. 4. Opportunity cost – what made sense once upon a time may not make sense now. 5. Face the facts – what do you measure and how much is in the rear view mirror vs. what is anticipatory? This interview is designed to help you as a leader anticipate and identify your blind spots and taboos.
