The most effective senior leaders are master delegators. Before doing anything themselves, they ask “Who can do this task instead of me?” Minority Business Development Agency head, Henry Childs says that is now the wrong question. Instead, they should ask “What can do this task instead of any of us?” They should do this in areas they can scale while investing in their areas of competitive advantage.
Childs said this as part of the interactive state of the market conversation at last week’s CEO Connection Mid-Market CEO Convention. One of the recurring themes there was how artificial intelligence is fueling the new industrial revolution. It’s all about leveraging technology to scale through points of inflection.
