Last December I threw in the towel. I had been living in a never ending battle with my Inbox and had lost all hope. I gave up...thinking I could never actually integrate the most important communication tools and documents in my world into one place.
...and the email kept coming...
A New Way
Two weeks ago I participated in something truly amazing. I was one of 30 digital influencers brought to New York City to be a part of IBM's launch of an incredible new product: IBM Verse.
I was excited on several levels. Being part of a major product kick-off was cool enough. But when you add that the product could actually help me in my work...well...I'm all in!
Moving beyond the buzz, the execs, and the inspiring trendy start-up leaders who spoke, I was taken aback by the seismic shift that is underway at IBM. Our experience involved much more than just a fancy product launch.
We spent three days connecting...challenging the collective wisdom about the world of work...and learning about the radical transformation underway at IBM that is now delivering products like IBM Verse.
I didn't see it coming.
Now I can't wait to get started!
It's All About the End User
What excited me the most was that the new approach at IBM, and candidly what should be every organization's priority, is the end user. What is best for the customer, the employee, the colleague...you get the point!
What will make a difference for those we're working with instead of what is most convenient for us?
That my friends is the way we all should focus our leadership styles forevermore.
Who's with me?
How About You
Check out IBM Verse and see for yourself how you can integrate all the aspects of your world into one place. It's clean, straightforward, and simple. It's time to stand up and shout about the future of work and how we want it to function...with us in mind. Isn't that how the world should be anyway?
I'd love to hear from you.
