How do you become the obvious choice in the hearts and minds of your customers, employees, and community? The answer is value. You either create more value than your competitors or you don’t. The more important question is how? In this case study-rich, and highly insightful book, Peter Sheahan and Julie Williamson PhD unpack for you the results of a multi-year, multi-industry study which answers the following questions:

  • What constitutes value in the mind of your most important customers?
  • Where are opportunities to create more value found?
  • What capabilities are needed in your organization to find and exploit those opportunities over and over again, even as the market changes and disruption continues?

You will be given a road map to finding your most valuable edge of disruption, develop the tools for building the relationships required to influence and partner with the right customers and clients, and find the inspiration and courage to lean into complexity and solve the higher order problems your clients face.

Generation Y

Peter Sheahan and the Karrikins Group work with hundreds of thousands of members of Generation Y and Generation Z every year. It is this real world experience that Peter draws upon in this groundbreaking book on Gen Y. You cannot change a group of people you don’t understand. This book addresses that gap. This international bestseller is referred to as the "Bible" for understanding this influential generation.

Generation Y comprises the highly influential segment of the population born between 1978 and 1994. This book, by the same name, specifically covers the following issues:

  • Their mindset (and what caused it)
  • How to attract and retain them as customers and staff
  • Strategies for communicating to and engaging with them
  • Their impact on organizational development and leadership styles

The thinking that has made us successful to date will not in the future; in many cases, it will hinder us. The expectations of customers and staff are changing rapidly and leaders need to keep pace. Fl!p will show them how. Emphasizing a new philosophy for leadership, Fl!p will offer a counterintuitive approach to innovation and change, and inspire leaders to take the intelligent risks required to find and exploit new value in the coming years.

Specifically it addresses the following challenging ideas:

  • Action Creates Clarity — To move forward, you must act in spite of ambiguity
  • Fast, Good, Cheap: Pick 3 — The acceleration of competitive advantages into competitive necessities
  • Superficial Is Anything But — The emergence of intangibles as the only source of sustainable competitive advantage
  • Business Is Personal — The emergence of relationships and connectivity in a world of data and information overload
  • Find It On The Fringe — To win mass-market success, be courageous and seek genuine differentiation on the fringe of mainstream positioning and practices
  • To Get Control, Give It Up — Embrace new business models and leadership styles anchored in influence and trust, not compliance and control
