What's Next! with Tiffani Bova

May 16, 2024

Welcome to the What's Next! Podcast with Tiffani Bova. 

I’m inviting Steve Dennis, a long-time social media friend to the show. Steve is a strategic advisor, keynote speaker, podcast host, and the bestselling author of his previous book, Remarkable Retail. He has been named a top global retail influencer by multiple organizations and his thoughts on the future of shopping are regularly shared in his role as a Forbes Senior Contributor. He is the president and founder of Sage Berry Consulting, but prior to that, he was Chief Strategy Officer and SVP of Multichannel Marketing at the Neiman Marcus Group. He serves on multiple nonprofit boards and has a new book out, Leaders Leap.


THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… leaders seeking insights on navigating industry disruption and fostering innovation in their organizations.


TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… making incremental changes is a risky strategy in this day and age and the organizations that don’t adapt to the accelerating pace of change risk falling behind in competitiveness. Steve explores how to get ahead. 


Key takeaways: 

  • How to prepare for “leaps” and drive powerful innovation. 

  • How to embrace discomfort and manage fear around change. 

  • The role of ego in limiting innovation. 

  • Why it’s important to incorporate both bold leaps and incremental changes based on an industry’s disruption levels


WHAT I LOVE MOST… change can be really scary. Steve shares some great reminders on how fear often precedes the greatest innovations.
