David Houle is a highly regarded futurist, media executive and entrepreneur. He is now a highly sought-after consultant and speaker. His insight on future trends is memorable and effective for both preparing for change and creating dynamic strategies for current projects. Houle boldly argues that hierarchal business practices are soon to be retired.
As he explains, the new and favored model of leadership will be a connection-based environment based on the slow lean towards crowd sourcing and deep selling practices. Houle explains that structures become resistant to change, which cripples innovation. To counter act this hesitation, business must remain open-minded. In keeping pace with accelerating rates of change, businesses can outperform competitors and creating loyal customers and employees.
