Disrupt Yourself™: Play to Your Distinctive Strengths
Personal Disruption (n.): The act of using a practice employed by companies — wherein a product deemed inferior by the market leader (Amazon v. Borders, Uber v. Yellow Cab) eventually upends the industry — and applying it to yourself and your career.
As the co-founder of a boutique investment firm with Clayton Christensen, Whitney Johnson came to realize that the frameworks of disruption not only apply to innovation and investing, but to individuals. The best way to drive corporate innovation is through personal disruption.
In our July webinar, Whitney outlined the seven guardrails that will speed our progress as we disrupt, including playing to your distinctive strengths. By popular demand, Whitney will now present an entire webinar, on this single variable.
This session is for YOU if you would like to:
- Identify your strengths
- Analyze which strengths can be of most use in your current role
- Leverage your strengths to meet your customer’s unmet needs
This session is for YOUR COMPANY if you would like to:
- Determine if you’ve got the right people in the right roles
- Discover untapped reservoirs of talent
- Increase the overall productivity of your employees and your team
We are living in an era of accelerating disruption—managing the S-curve waves of learning and mastering is a requisite skill. If you want to walk through the doors of opportunity, play to your distinctive strengths.
