How to make your transformation journey about opportunity, not fear

The impetus these days for most organizations is to transform their business to achieve competitive advantage. It’s a good imperative, but the reason for change matters, too. In this episode, David Linthicum talks with consultant and author John Hagel on how to build a future based on seeing opportunity rather than fear. John’s view is that it takes building a strong corporate narrative for the future, cultivating a shared passion, and building learning platforms to bring people together.


It's not that we have all the answers and we know exactly where to go and how to get there, but it's an exciting opportunity and it's worth taking risks to pursue.

John Hagel is a management consultant at Beyond Our Edge, LLC, a trusted advisor, and inspirational speaker. He is also the author of several books, including his latest, "The Journey Beyond Fear: Leveraging Three Pillars of Positivity to Build Your Success."
