This year, the 2023 #CosmicConference was all about strategy execution and helping organizations deliver on their strategies. From October 6 to November 11, we hosted 12 virtual sessions and 4 in-person events across 2 countries. 17 incredible speakers joined us to share their perspectives on 5 topics: strategy execution, scaling, capability development, transformation, and restructuring
One ritual we do every Cosmic Conference is the rapid-fire questions and this is one of the things we asked our speakers this year:
“What is the book about strategy or strategy execution every leader should read today?”
Here’s what our speakers had to say:
Patrick Flesner: Turn This Ship Around by David Marquette.
Richard Fitzgerald: Every Town is a Sports Town by Donald T. Phillips and George Bodenheimer
Wissam Adib: Managing Transitions by William Bridges
Belen Settembri: Co-Active Leadership: Five Ways to Lead by Karen Kimsey-House & Henry Kimsey-House.
Soussane Chartouny: The Art of War by San Tzu
Christiane Mueck: Give and Take: Why Helping Others Drives Our Success by Adam Grant and the Infinite Game by Simon Sinek.
