About this presentation: The Last Competitive Advantage

All the competitive advantages we have pursued during our careers are gone. That's right - Strategy, Technology, and Marketing are gone.

No, those disciplines have not disappeared. They are alive and well in most organizations. But as meaningful competitive advantages, as real differentiators that can set one company apart from another, they are no longer anything close to what they once were.

Hrishi works with best-selling author, Patrick Lencioni, and will be addressing the model in Lencioni’s latest book, The Advantage.  Along with Lencioni, Hrishi makes the overwhelming case that organizational health will surpass all other disciplines in business as the greatest opportunity for improvement and competitive advantage.  While too many leaders are still limiting their search for advantage to the conventional and largely exhausted areas mentioned earlier, Hrishi believes there is an untapped gold mine sitting right beneath them.  Instead of trying to become smarter, he asserts that leaders and organizations need to shift their focus to becoming healthier, allowing them to tap into the more than sufficient intelligence and expertise they already have.

Hrishi defines a healthy organization as one with minimal politics and confusion, high degrees of morale and productivity, and low turnover among good people.

At our meeting, we will review the four disciplines required to create a healthy organization, the five dysfunctions of a team, and how to create alignment and clarity throughout your organization. Essentially, how to establish a culture that will cultivate the best out of your people and produce your greatest competitive advantage in the marketplace.
