June’s live Cloud Wars Expo event featured dozens of industry leaders allowing the Acceleration Economy team access to the inner workings of the greatest growth market the world has ever known.
If you missed the Expo or just want to catch up on sessions you were not able to attend, then you’re in luck. We recorded more than 40 hours of education sessions from the event, which are available for free to Acceleration Economy subscribers. We’re also previewing the content in this series of Moments, which feature highlights from each session.
In this Cloud Wars Expo Moment, Bob Evans hosts Christian Anschuetz (Principal Advisor, Public Sector, SF Digital) and Chris Lochhead (3x CMO, #1 Business Podcaster, Bestselling Author, Category Pirates) in a discussion about the responsibilities that leaders must embrace and the importance of being exceptional.
01:00 — Anschuetz (pictured, above) describes his time in the U.S. Marine Corps and how there is a belief that the Marine Corps is “highly command and control.” Of all the organizations Anschuetz has come across, he has yet to find one that is less command and control than the Marine Corps.
01:34 — Bob asks how the Marine Corps would react if Anschuetz told his supervisor that they needed to implement change management. He believes that they would have encouraged him to figure it out and experiment — he’s unsure if he would receive the same response in the corporate world.
02:14 — Anschuetz tells audience members to embrace being leaders and innovators, both of which are hardworking.
02:25 — Lochhead considers what parts of being a leader or innovator are hard.
03:01 — It takes exceptional leaders — those who can embrace the responsibilities — to inspire the people who matter the most.
03:31 — If more executive leaders focused on the next generation of customers, employees, and the overall business, the business world could be in much better shape.
03:43 — People need to start doing things for people other than themselves. That’s what leadership is about.
