Leveraging Thought Leadership

Oct 18, 2020

Today’s guest is Larry English, president, and co-founder of Centric Consulting, a management consulting firm that guides organizations through complex digital business and technology problems. Larry has also recently written Office Optional, a timely book about moving from the office to remote working.

Larry explains how his book was in the works before COVID-19, how his company has been working virtually for 20 years, how they have cultivated a positive work culture, and how they are teaching others to do the same.

We discuss the issues employees face when starting to work remotely, like finding a work/life balance, managing the freedom of not being in an office, and avoiding having your team feel disconnected from each other and the organization.

We end the conversation talking about understanding how a book can play into your business, why something’s that are important to do won’t have a measurable ROI, and why producing content can give you an edge on your competition.

This is a great episode for anyone working in or managing a company dealing with the hardships of moving your teams to work virtually.

Three Key Takeaways:

  • Thought Leadership will play a huge part in maintaining the culture of an organization during the move to remote working.
  • Not all thought leadership will have a hard ROI, yet the importance of your content will be immense.
  • Thought Leaders should consider the breadth of their content and how it will play into the future of how people work and live.
