What you as a leader work on minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, day-by-day matters, and either moves the needle and propels growth or constricts it. For instance, consistently and strategically choosing one “big idea” per month (or pieces of that big idea) will move a business forward faster than any one particular tactic. Working on one big idea across each pillar of your business - team, customers, capital, and strategic execution (and personal mindset) - will lead to exponential growth over time. Pete joins me today to share reasons why companies get stuck and stop growing and what leaders can do to change that.

How Collaboration Is Changing and Modern Team Dynamics
50:17There's one simple truth most working adults realize in their first job: meetings stink. Darren Chait is no exception. While he was an attorney, he recoiled at how inefficient and archaic lawyers' meetings are...then he had sticker shock when he saw the invoices and realized clients pay for that slow-paced inefficiency! That put him on the path to finding a better way for meetings. The result: Hugo, an online app that changes the way we think about meetings. On the way, Darren learned that leadership in a fast-growth startup is very different than what the textbooks say. He joins Maureen to share what he's learned on the journey about leadership, how collaboration is changing, modern team dynamics, shared consciousness, direction versus support, and when to make leader problems team problems.
