With the rise of digital technology, business moves at unprecedented speeds and now runs at an exponential pace. My book, Exponential Theory: The Power of Thinking Big explains how this impacts all of us. Through fifteen years of research I have gathered a collection of mental models, stories, and case studies to define what it will take to be a leader in the future. Follow me to learn more and grow yourself personally, professionally, and organizationally.
“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” — Steve Jobs
The exponential pace is wreaking havoc on the business landscape as we know it. Disruption has brought “too big to fail” companies to their knees in a matter of months, and it has made some industries obsolete. Any company or leader that doesn’t move at an exponential pace will be crushed by new, massively transformative exponential organizations.
These organizations are quickly expanding their purpose and invading new industries every day. Guides like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and others continue to provide us with road maps for how to navigate the exponential horizon. Through a collection of ten ways of thinking big, we have created a formula to navigate the disruption, think big, and make the necessary changes for your company to thrive and the world to survive.
Thinking big and exponential theory — combined with emerging technologies and accelerated change — will not only disrupt the world but also gives us a chance to save it. It is time for a new generation of leadership — for leaders who are purposeful, conscious, digital, and above all, exponential. A leader focused on the entire system. No longer can we ignore the signs of bad decisions or small thinking by leaders. Exponential Theory outlines how our decisions impact an integrated system and why we must start to consider all the stakeholders to survive which ultimately will drive more growth, abundance, and profit.
