I was a big fan of the show Undercover Boss, where the CEO of a big company masquerades in different roles throughout their own organization. I liked the premise the first few times I watched but then the formula became painfully obvious: CEO leaves big house for crummy hotel room; performs tasks poorly; finds employees who are overcoming challenges; discovers employees have good ideas; learns life lessons while undercover.

Follow the Leader: Clay Shirky (1 of 3)

NYU professor Clay Shirky, a recognized thought leader on the intersection of technology and innovation, says the transformative potential of social and business networks to change human behavior and elevate corporate performance is only now becoming visible to executive leaders.

Shirky explores the business impact of cross-network collaboration, sharing, value exchange and generosity and how it relates to corporate engagement with contributors and end-consumers alike in this exclusive onsite at the 2012 World Innovation Forum video interview for ExecuNet.

While You Were Out…

Feeling stressed? Burned out on work? You're not alone.

Frisch has posited an interesting question that deserves attention. He advises you contemplate if you know who really makes the big decisions at your organization. If you think the answer can be found on an organization chart, think again.


Many business leaders speak of failure when they talk about innovation. The tough lessons. The unwise investment decisions. The hours of toil, often without recognition. The near misses, many recount, are especially painful to recall.

Yet through it all — through the missteps of trial and error — we pursue innovation as if it's a pass/fail score in a college classroom. It is not. The recent assemblage of experts on creativity, marketing and technology at the recent World Innovation Forum in New York City drive that point home as never before.


What World Renowned Business Leaders Have to Say

Many of the world's top business leaders, from a variety of industries, gathered in New York City to share their views on business and the challenges today's leaders will face in the coming years. Attendees learned how visionaries from a wide range of management disciplines define the process and commitments required to realize the potential for raising organizational performance in a time of lingering economic uncertainty and a changing global economy. These are can't miss insights for any business executive!
