Rita McGrath, a professor at Columbia Business School and a globally recognized expert on strategy in uncertain and volatile environments, spoke on businesses no longer needing to strive for sustainable competitive advantage. McGrath believes "we need to think differently about strategy, how we're going to compete." She believes forces in today’s turbulent business environment have rendered sustainable competitive advantage irrelevant. Instead companies need a portfolio of multiple transient advantages — advantages that can be built quickly and abandoned just as rapidly.

Acclaimed CEO advisor and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Peter Bregman spoke with ExecuNet's CMO, Anthony Vlahos, about identifying and halting self-sabotaging behaviors and replacing them with effective behaviors.

As part of ExecuNet membership, I conduct a bi-weekly teleconference called Six-Figure Hotline where members call in to ask the questions keeping them up at night, and to gain market and trend insight from the career experts who join me in talking about issues that are important to executives today.

In one such teleconference, I was joined by Madelyn Sierra, a management consultant specializing in organizational strategy and leadership development and an ExecuNet career strategist. We provide solutions to executive career issues that are important to you.
