Leading Boldly and Authentically - Inspiring Trust and Winning in the Global Digital Economy

Technology executives who inspire employees and foster an environment of trust can stimulate a collaborative culture that sparks innovation and drives business outcomes with the aid of impactful technologies that can enable the organization to win in the marketplace while attracting, growing, and retaining the people and skills that are needed to power the successful 21st century organization.

DIGITAL TECH TALK INTERVIEW:  The New Leadership Paradigm: Why Tech Executives Must Shift from a ‘Command-and-Control’ Model to ‘Inspire and Trust’ to Win the Global War for Talent and in the Marketplace

Stephen M. R. Covey, best-selling author interviewed by Hunter Muller, Founder and CEO, HMG Strategy

The world has changed dramatically since March 2020 and so, too, have organizational cultures. The shift to a work-from-home environment has empowered employees who want to dictate how, when and where they work. Moreover, in a flat screen meeting environment where all participants are viewed as equals, employees don’t want to follow orders – they want to be part of the brain-trust that helps to solve critical business and customer challenges and to influence the strategic trajectory of the company.

In this compelling Executive Interview with HMG Strategy President and CEO Hunter Muller, Stephen M.R. Covey, best-selling author of The Speed of Trust and his forthcoming book Inspire and Trust, shares why a ‘Command-and-Control’ leadership style no longer works and how an ‘Inspire and Trust’ leadership approach can encourage employees to be more collaborative and creative and to maximize their potential. Covey, who is the Co-Founder of CoveyLink and the FranklinCovey Global Speed of Trust practice, also frames “the two epic imperatives of our time” to help guide leaders on creating a thriving culture that can help attract, grow, retain, engage and inspire the best people in the global war for talent and to successfully collaborate and innovate in order for companies to win in the marketplace.

The global shortage for technology talent continues to become more severe. In many instances, employees are being offered massive compensation increases by other companies – often outside of financial services.

Still, savvy financial services CIOs and technology executives who sharpen their leadership capabilities and take the steps needed to strengthen their personal brands can act as a magnet to retain and attract the talent that’s needed to reimagine and move the business forward. In this executive panel discussion, top-tier CIOs, technology leaders and search executives share their recommendations for tech executives to strengthen their leadership proficiencies and amplify their personal brands to retain and attract world-class technology talent.

EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP: Leadership Strategies That Are Working Now and Into the Future

Moderator:  Hunter Muller, President and CEO, HMG Strategy

Since the start of the global pandemic in March 2020, organizational executives have had to modify their leadership styles to address a range of macro-economic and societal issues: keeping remote employees engaged and connected amid a global war for talent; the War in Ukraine; global supply-chain constraints; a heightened focus on diversity, equity and inclusion; rising interest rates – just to name a few.

In this Executive Leadership Tabletop Workshop, technology executives will select on one of the following three topics to focus on for 25 minutes and assign a leader to present on the group’s findings to the summit attendees for consideration and dialogue:

  • 7 Leadership Approaches That Have Worked Effectively Since March 2020
  • 7 Leadership Approaches That Technology Executives are Currently Working On
  • 7 Leadership Approaches That are or Should be Considered into the Future

Ransomware attacks are up a whopping 500% in 2021. Meanwhile, the nature of recent attacks including Log4j continue to become more widespread as these threats are impacting infrastructure, supply chains and other operations that can impact multiple organizations at once. Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine has also triggered a series of risks facing financial services companies. These threats range from supply-chain disruptions to the impact on third-party developers and their western partners as well as cybersecurity threats posed by Russia against U.S. companies and infrastructure. As these and other types of threats and risks continue to evolve and become more dangerous and complex, it’s clear that CISOs and security leaders need to reimagine their cybersecurity strategies to better safeguard the organization now and into the future.

 

In this timely executive panel discussion, world-class security leaders and industry executives will share their perspectives on the top risks and threats facing enterprise organizations, the risk mitigation strategies they are following, along with the approaches they are taking to communicate these challenges to the CEO and the Board.

  • Tonkean

    Tonkean is the OS for Business Operations, empowering operations teams to rapidly improve efficiency with an enterprise-grade, composable automation platform. By allowing ops teams to automate, monitor, and manage mission-critical business processes with no-code, while still maintaining compliance and security, Tonkean enables enterprises to accelerate operational velocity at scale. The Tonkean platform makes automating complex business processes simple and accessible to non-developers, such as business operations teams and process owners, by abstracting the high technical barrier and coding expertise needed to deliver robust, enterprise-grade process solutions via composability. Ops teams compose custom process solutions using building blocks called “enterprise components” or ECs. ECs are modular, interchangeable, and reusable capabilities that perform actions or complete steps in a business process. ECs are fully governed and curated, typically by IT. They can be adopted from vendors or custom built, or they can simply be extensions of existing tools and systems. This allows ops and process experts to rapidly build holistic process solutions that can work with different systems, easily adapt to changing needs, and measure cross-functional KPIs–all with no-code and no change management. Enterprises like Google, EVERSANA, Instacart, Grubhub, Crypto.com, and more rely on Tonkean to optimize and align their operations across functions—including sales, marketing, customer support, legal, finance, and more. With Tonkean, enterprises can expand the pie of who can deliver software to make a world of Makers.

  • Zscaler

    Zscaler, the only zero trust platform that securely connects any user, any device, and any app over any network. Back in the day when your users were all on the network and your applications resided in your physical data center, it made sense to establish a secure perimeter around your network. But those days are over, the perimeter is gone, and network security is all but irrelevant. Instead, you need to put your defenses and controls where the connections occur— the internet — so that every connection is fast and secure, no matter how or where users connect or where their applications reside. By moving applications and infrastructure to the cloud and untethering employees from their desks, you can realize tremendous advantages in productivity, agility, and cost containment. With our 100% cloud built secure platform, Zscaler can help you make the move to the cloud, securely.
