Our CEO’s top business insights from 2017
It has been such a pleasure for us to share some of our CEO, Daniel Nel’s key business insights around digital, leadership and innovation. And he’s certainly provided some great advice.
Ever the fan of an analogy, he’s spoken about human potential, Formula One racing and cooking. But regardless of what creative examples he uses to get his point across, in all of his business insight blogs, he’s stressed the importance of people – from the people working at the coalface to those leading teams.
Take a look at some of the business insights he shared in 2017:
#1 Creating a High Performance business strategy in 2017
At the beginning of 2017, he explained how running a high performance business is all about power, precision and speed. High performance businesses have some sort of elite or exclusive quality, they are agile and unique. They needn’t be the biggest or the best but they are incredibly efficient at what they do best.
#2 Boat building for dummies: understanding the business innovation process
In June, he discussed business innovation. He explained that a business doesn’t necessarily have to come up with something totally new in order to be considered “innovative”. In fact, he argued that for some businesses, it is actually a better strategy to direct their innovation efforts towards making existing processes more efficient and effective. And in doing so, improving how the business already runs.
#3 High performance business strategy – why the right TEM partner is like an F1 pit stop crew
Really honing in on what Nebula does best – telecoms expense and lifecycle management (TEM) – Nel compared a good TEM partner to a Formula One pit stop crew. He argued that a poor pit stop could be the difference between winning the race and missing out on the podium altogether and that an experienced TEM partner provides businesses with the same edge they need to outdo their competition.
#4 Why human potential is the new competitive advantage
A firm believer in the value of good leadership and the importance of an effective team, Nel recently outlined why successful leaders should harness the strengths of their team, rather than focussing on their weaknesses. He also offered various tips for unlocking human potential.
#5 A recipe for high performance business leadership
For Nel, the quintessential leader is a chef. From serving your team to inspiring them to do better, he thinks that there is general lack of proficient and accomplished leaders. Not only are successful leaders good innovators, communicators and motivators, they’re always working to nurture and develop the leaders of the future.
