Success is the Best Advocate

It was fantastic to have Mike speak at our offsite for Google Cloud! He taught us how our clients can emulate the world’s fastest-growing companies using exponential innovation. This stuff comes naturally to Google, but isn’t so obvious to the rest of the world. Mike has the unique ability to simplify complex topics and turn them into practical suggestions that everyone can understand, and he delivers his message with energy and passion. My colleagues keep telling me how impressed they were.

We loved having Mike Lingle present objectives and key results (OKRs) to our Data and AI org at IBM. Mike is not only a thought leader but also a terrific presenter! Over 100 IBM-ers came from cross-functional teams (engineering, sales, tech sales, product management, product marketing etc) to learn from Mike. He demonstrated best practices by engaging us with stories from his experience in building companies and working with startups. These real world examples quickly gave us a sense of what to expect when implementing OKRs, as well as pitfalls to avoid. I’ve been receiving positive feedback all day from both our employees and our executives!

I am so glad that we were able to attend Mike's session! From start to finish, it was an engaging and enlightening look at everything from the dangers of the corporate immune system to the tactics that have allowed the world's fastest growing organizations to earn that title. It's unbelievable how easy it is for some of these elements, despite their ability to drive incredible exponential growth and change, to be overlooked if you don't have someone there to shine the spotlight on them. Our team is absolutely looking forward to our next opportunity to participate in another ExO Work session.
