You, Me, and Your Top Three

Business & Economics Podcasts >

Building Your Virtual Advisory Board to Compete in the Connecting World You, Me, and Your Top Three is focused on exploring leadership in the connecting world. Specifically, the podcast invites leaders to reflect through personal stories and discuss their views on: Disruption in industry and society Transforming organization during this disruption Brave leadership to drive transformation. It is this last point where our host, Gregg Garrett chooses to focus most of the discussion, asking our guests to share their insights into the relationships they have with their Top 3 closest advisors. It is our experience that as the world connects, the importance of a diverse set of counselors is increasing in value. For some this may be a formal advisor who has been contracted on behalf of the company. For most this will be deep relationships in which they have been invested and nurtured. Through stories and discussion, we strive to celebrate the art of giving and receiving advice. The stories that are told are heartfelt and real. At the root we are exploring the process of knowledge building, relationship building, and perhaps most importantly, confidence building. After all, it takes a brave leader to battle the inertia that exists in industries, our organizations, and in ourselves. It is our hope that as successful leaders open up about around the subjects and the way in which they interact with their closest confidants, that our listeners will, in turn, reflect on their own virtual board of advisors. Over time they will then surround themselves with those who help them stretch toward greatness and lead bravely in the connecting world.
