Tech Leader Talk

Jun 13, 2024

Would you like to learn how to create stability in your organization while the tech landscape is constantly changing?

Today’s guest, Stephen Shapiro, will share his insights and experiences about using “Pivotal Strategies” to strengthen your tech company. 

Stephen is a leading keynote speaker, author, and advisor on innovation.  He has two decades of practical innovation experience, including a 15-year tenure at Accenture, where he created and led a 20,000-person innovation practice.

Stephen has just released a new book titled “Pivotal: Creating Stability in an Uncertain World.”  Today he will be sharing some insights from his latest book and the motivation behind the book.

Stephen talks about the importance of understanding your organization’s unique strengths and leveraging them as differentiators.  He suggests “doubling down” on what sets you apart to create maximum impact and value.

During our conversation, Stephen also explains that pivoting is essential, but it’s equally important to ensure a stable foundation.  Excessive pivoting can lead to burnout, confusion, and lack of alignment within your organization.
