Conference Technologies' Meeting Rhythm -- John Laughlin, leading one of the faster growing firms in the US through an aggressive acquisition strategy, has driven execution through his daily and weekly meeting rhythm, including the all-important "council" meeting. This six-minute interview, with me, provides details including the time of his daily (8:02am), how it's structured, how it's freed up the rest of his week to do "market-facing" activities, and the broader impact of the weekly council meeting. If you're not doing the daily and hosting a weekly "council" meeting you're leaving a lot of time and money on the table.
Blitzscaling "CBS This Morning" Interview -- this 4-minute CBS interview with LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman provides an excellent overview of his new book titled Blitzscaling which was released earlier this week. At 2:45 in the interview Reid outlines four counterintuitive aspects of scaling rapidly:
- Embrace chaos
- Tolerate "bad" management
- Let fires burn
- Ignore customers
- Evolve your culture
He goes on to explain each and how they must exist if you want to dominate a global market quickly.
