Press play to hear Daniel Saks’ thoughts on…
The Problem with Complexity
“Steve Jobs said ‘simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.’ Especially in B2B business and digital enterprises today, it's so easy to add scope creep and to talk about all the features and the underlying capabilities and to drive a lot of complexity, not only into your marketing message, but into the way you operate. It's super, super difficult to break things down and make them simple and intuitive.”
“It takes a long time to build trust, but only seconds to degrade that trust. In the digital world, building trust is much more difficult, because you don't necessarily always have the human-to-human interaction and experience… having faces, and names, and experiences behind your brand is super powerful.”
Living Your Values
“Instead of just being words on a wall, the values can become the way that you hire, the way that you promote, the reason why you let people go... Integrating your values into the fabric of who you are is going to ultimately differentiate values-based cultures from those who aren't and enable you to endure and scale seamlessly in this digital economy.”
