Be Bold, Open, Transparent, and Authentic for Change as a Leader with Charlene Li

Leaders need to be fearless and take risks to create change. Sometimes it's not a matter of being lucky but rather being bold enough to initiate the change in the first place. If a leader is too scared or cautious about taking risks, they will never be able to implement the needed changes their organization needs. Join another conversation of “Takin’ a Walk Podcast.” This show is about the love of conversations with extraordinary people, people who have extraordinary stories. Leadership is one of the topics I always talk about with the guests when taking a walk. Today’s guest, Charlene Li, is an expert in that area.

 

Charlene Li has been helping people see the future for the past two decades. She’s the New York Times bestselling author of six books, including her newest release, The Disruption Mindset: Why Some Businesses Transform While Others Fail, and Open Leadership, as well as co-author of the critically-acclaimed book, Groundswell. Charlene is an entrepreneur who founded and ran Altimeter Group, a disruptive industry analyst firm that Prophet acquired in 2015. With over 20 years of experience in tech and business, she has been a respected advisor to Fortune 500 companies on digital transformation and leadership. Charlene also serves on the regional board for YPO, a global network of CEOs.

 

Charlene is a sought-after public speaker and has appeared at events ranging from TED and the World Business Forum to SXSW. She has appeared on 60 Minutes and PBS NewsHour and is frequently quoted by The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, and The Associated Press. She was named one of the Top 50 Leadership Innovators by Inc. and one of the most creative people in business by Fast Company.
