  • Growth is a Thinking Game

    The one thing about growth is it is never one thing. It isn’t about hiring the best employees or delivering the most incredible customer experience or launching the most innovative products – it is all of them, working in combination.

    To achieve growth, we must out-think and out-execute our competition. We must find ways to ignite a beginner’s mind that is open to new ideas and ways of doing things. We can’t fall back on old habits and say, ‘that isn’t the way we do it here,’ or ‘we tried that a few years ago and it didn’t work.’ As business leaders, we must be willing to disrupt ourselves if we expect those around us to be able to respond to disruptions.

    In this session, Tiffani Bova, Global Growth Evangelist at Salesforce and bestselling author of Growth IQ, inspires attendees to take planned action with a greater understanding of the interdependencies in the decisions made around growth. During the session, she will share the Growth IQ framework including several of the “10 Growth Paths” covered in her book.
