Episode Description

According to Wikipedia, "the conative is one of three parts of the mind, along with the affective and cognitive. In short, the cognitive part of the brain has to do with intelligence, the affective deals with emotions and the conative drives how one acts on those thoughts and feelings." Since business exist and prosper solely as the direct result of their people's actions, it's obvious that the conative strengths of each and every person who belongs to an organization matter a great deal. So for each job within an organization, there is a specific set of conative characteristics that would make a person particularly well fit for that job. In this episode, I will share with you I used these conative strengths, in one specific practical case, to support a client in creating a particularly strong entrepreneurial organization--so strong that they manage to execute a successful M&A transaction!

Operationally Speaking is about the Art and Science of operating businesses like a well-oiled machine, so that their owners, CEOs and leaders turn their Vision into Reality with the least amount of effort, resources and pain. The show focuses on how to run entrepreneurial businesses. It touches all aspects, from creating alignment, to having the right people in the right seats. From how to keep the finger on the pulse through the right metrics to the art and science of solving issues. From how to make it scalable and predictable via process to how to establish the disciplines and accountability that turn a good business into a great one.

Operationally Speaking is for leaders of growth-oriented businesses with organizations up to 500 people or so, and for those who aspire to become so. It brings real “in the trenches” CEOs, as well as thought leaders in the field. It focuses on the practical and real, rather than on theory. It aims to INform and INspire.
