In this episode, we delve into the evolving landscape of business strategy, with a focus on the integration of AI, the importance of fractional leadership, and the challenges and opportunities of managing remote teams. Guest speaker John Lund, an expert in business strategy and coaching, shares valuable insights and practical tips for C-suite executives and small to medium-sized business owners looking to navigate the changing business environment.



  • Understanding New Leaders’ Challenges: Post-COVID, upcoming leaders lack casual mentoring experiences, impacting their ability to manage and understand the company as a whole.
  • Intentional Connections and Cross-Department Learning: Encourage inter-departmental involvement in meetings and processes for broader learning and better decision-making.
  • Effective Time Management in Meetings: Implement unconventional meeting times and extended casual pre-meeting durations to foster interaction and rapport.
  • Clarifying ‘What Winning Looks Like’: Ensuring every team member understands their role and success metrics simplifies management and aligns efforts with company goals.
  • Adopting OKRs for Goal Setting: Objectives and Key Results, coupled with collaborative projects, provide a clear and effective framework for goal setting and achievement.
  • Leveraging AI for Efficiency: AI tools like ChatGPT can revolutionize processes, from analyzing contracts to setting goals, boosting efficiency and quality.
  • Importance of Fractional Leadership: For many SMBs, fractional executives offer the right balance of expertise and flexibility, driving growth without overcommitting resources.
  • Embracing Remote Work and Outsourcing: Modern businesses must leverage remote work, outsourcing, and AI to stay competitive and adapt to the new work landscape.
