Here's the Secret to Finding Agile and Effective Leadership for Your Business!

In today's fast-paced and dynamic business environment, companies of all sizes need agile and effective leadership C-level experts to stay competitive. However, it’s easier said than done, especially when it comes to filling a position with an immense number of responsibilities. Getting a full-time C-suite professional onboard is a time-consuming task and sometimes it takes months to find the perfect fit.

The main challenge arises henceforth. The vacant senior management seat often creates a vacuum in the work operations and paralyzes the company’s aim of achieving its goals and visions. This in turn creates a ruckus in the organizational structure and an urgency to fill the position is created. Often, to bridge the time gap, executive professionals are brought on board with whom expectations and deliverables don’t match on both ends. The result being predictable – a significant loss of resources, in terms of time, costs, and effort.

One way to tackle the problem can by tapping into the expertise of gig CXOs. Gig CXOs are experienced professionals who offer their services on a project or flexi-tenure basis, providing valuable insight and guidance to help businesses operate more efficiently and effectively.

Engaging with flexi CXOs can be a smart move for businesses during such a tenure, where the organization is in a look-out for the perfect C-level talent, to prevent operations from stagnating. It also buys organizations the time to understand their long-term needs better.

For example, let’s consider Organization X wants a perfect fit for the position of Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Or Chief Product Officer (CPO). They have initiated their process of bringing someone on board, but as we all know, the whole process of initiating the search to interview / selection process & finally getting the CXO to join this organization X (after serving the notice period in the previous organization) can take anywhere from good 6 – 9 months.

Now, no organization wants their operations to suffer because the position is vacant. This is where Flexi-CXOs can help organizations like X. They engage with your business for a flexi-period, ensuring that organizational operations do not suffer a let you, as a business find the perfect C-level talent without a sense of urgency, hence making a sustainable decision. Once the full time CXO joins organization X the flexi-CXO smoothly hands over the baton to the incoming CXO & exits without creating any friction in the operations of the organization.

This way the organization not only avoids any disruptions in the operations but also gets sufficient time to find the right fit CXO which is very important for any organization in this highly competitive business environment.

By taking the time to understand needs and priorities upfront, businesses can ensure that they are making the best use of their resources and positioning themselves for success in the years to come. It can be also ensured that the resources invested in a long-term engagement are aligned with the organization's strategic goals and priorities.

Another key benefits of working with gig CXOs is the flexi-engagement they offer. Businesses can engage with them on a part-time or project basis, allowing them to benefit from their expertise. This flexibility also means that companies can bring in gig CXOs as and when they are needed, whether it's for a short-term project or ongoing support.

The other advantage of working with flexi-CXOs is the fresh perspective they bring to a business. As outside experts, they can offer unbiased and objective advice, free from any internal politics or biases. They can identify areas for improvement and suggest new strategies and approaches that may not have been considered before.

Shared or Gig CXOs can also bring a wealth of industry knowledge and experience to a business. They have worked with a range of companies in various sectors and have encountered many of the challenges that businesses face. As a result, they can offer practical and proven solutions to help companies overcome these challenges and achieve their goals.

One of the main concerns that businesses may have when working with gig CXOs is the potential for a lack of commitment or loyalty. However, this is often not the case. Many flexi-CXOs are highly motivated to deliver results and build a strong reputation, knowing that their success is dependent on their ability to deliver value to their clients.

In a nutshell, gig CXOs can offer a cost-effective and flexible solution for businesses that need specific expertise and support. They can provide a fresh perspective, industry knowledge, and practical solutions to help businesses operate more efficiently and effectively. Before engaging with a full-time professional, it may be worth considering the benefits of working with gig CXOs to see how they can help your business and understand your own business requirements better.

Why is digital marketing important for Medium and Small Enterprises ?

One of the key differentiators of the success of a business is the number of customers that it can reach as more customers mean more sales volume.   One of the technological innovations that helps a business in this direction is digital marketing . It is indeed a boon for MSMEs as it lets you reach your target audience with ease, simplicity and at very low cost. Cost is always a concern for most MSMEs. Why would anyone not want to use the power of the internet with over 3 billion users to further the cause of their own business?

Do marketers need to worry about job losses in AI dominated future ? (Part 1)

The age of AI driven automation is well and truly upon us. Pizza Hut is experimenting with robots called Pepper and virtual assistants like Siri and Alexa are a reality now. According to Pizza Hut the experiment with Pepper will not only make the customer service faster and more efficient but will also make it easier for people to customize their orders. The company expects a reduction in customers’ wait time for orders and far superior and personalized user experience. This does indeed represent a threat to the first line of marketing personnel.   Although it is equally true, that Pepper has not been so successful outside Japan, where it is sometimes available at hotel lobbies as a virtual concierge and was actually fired from a Scottish grocery for less than satisfactory performance! But this can be seen as a step in the learning curve for AI controlled robotics and as we all know that this learning curve is indeed quite sharp.   Marketeers are confused as to h
