If you thought you were well on your way to Level 5 Leadership, Teamwork and Communication, think again! We are entering a new era of exponential change which will reset everything. Whatever you thought was fast will be reset as slow. Winning reset as losing. Revolutionary reset as evolutionary. Whatever you thought was level 5 leadership, culture and teamwork will be reset as level zero, as a qualifier not a differentiator.
"The development of AI is as fundamental as the creation of the microprocessor, the personal computer, the Internet, and the mobile phone. It will change the way people work, learn, travel, get health care, and communicate with each other. Entire industries will reorient around it. Businesses will distinguish themselves by how well they use it"
Bill Gates, March 2023 (GatesNotes.com)
Cutting through the complexity and hype, I have distilled the challenge down to the essence of C2C: Conversation-Flow to Cash-Flow. The trajectory and agility of your cash-flow is determined by the trajectory and agility of your conversation-flow. Cash-flow is not king anymore! Conversation-flow is king and cash-flow is a way of keeping score! To win on the new battleground you will have to begin a 5 level reset to supercharge your conversation-flow with the agility required.
In our new eBook, The One Advantage, we wrote and reviewed a chapter with Alan Mulally, CEO of Ford Motor Company from 2006 to 2014, about how he cracked the code at Ford and pulled off a turnaround of C2C: Conversation-Flow to Cash-Flow (and Share-Price!) by beginning a 5 level reset. He said, "I love The One Advantage as an expression of the “Working Together” approach I used at Ford and Boeing. It is the only competitive advantage you really have." (Alan Mulally, former CEO, Ford Motor Company and Boeing Commercial Airplanes) which is the quote on the front cover.

This is the new battle ground that will determine the winners and the losers, the victors and the victims and separate the best from the rest in the next era of exponential disruptive change.
So the question now becomes, how ill you develop an intelligence advantage? It takes 5 levels, which build and compound as foundations for each other. Your intelligence advantage will be founded on an advisory advantage of external input and radar scanning, an agility advantage operating system, creating the conditions of a cultural advantage and the success factors of a peer advantage. All of which doesn't happen by accident. It happens by design.
“It will become increasingly useful to view all of the people and computers on our planet as a single global Supermind and perhaps our future as a species will depend upon how well we are able to use the Collective Intelligence of our global Supermind to make choices that are not just smart but also wise” Thomas Malone, MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, Superminds: The Surprising Power of People and Computers Thinking Together (2018).

In an exponential age you can’t possibly keep up by trying to have all of your intelligence in-house. That is already the case with an increasing proportions coming from portfolio professionals (external advisors, independent consultants, freelancers etc). You have no choice except to rely more and more on external input to help you scan your radar scope and make sense of what is coming up over the fringes in your direction.
These combine to be the one and only competitive advantage you really have, of a peer-powered culture of agility. We explore that in our newly released eBook: The One Advantage: Introducing a Peer Powered Culture of Agility to Your Organization. A quick-read for injection of inspiration to develop your peer advantage, culture advantage and agility advantage. I Co-Authored this with Leo Bottary (peer-power thought leading author), Jason Richmond (culture thought leading author) triangulating with my Agility thought leadership.
Leaders must be conductors creating the conditions to begin this 5 level reset:
