Charlene Li on how to feel in command when you are no longer in control (video)

March 4, 2011
Charlene Li, author and Thought Leader on emerging technologies.

The long held concept of command-and-control leadership is being tested as organizations are experiencing the largest technological shift of our generation. Talk with your customers. Listen to your employees. These are well-tested truisms of business. But ask organizations to engage with people on Facebook or Twitter and a look of sheer terror crosses their faces.

In her newest book, Open Leadership: How Social Technology Can Transform the Way You Lead, Charlene Li addresses the challenges facing leadership given the dramatic impact social technologies have had on customer, partner, and employee relationships. Read The New Rules Of Open Leadership as featured in chapter 1 of her book.


On June 16, 2011, Charlene Li will address leaders worldwide as part of our Thought Leader Series in a session entitled ‘Open Leadership: Transform the Way You Lead.’ Tune in for a new approach that today’s leaders will need to familiarize themselves with and to adopt in order to maintain a competitive advantage.
