Ori Brafman: Agility and Distributed Networks
Ori Brafman is a multiple New York Times bestselling author, researcher, and entrepreneur. He specializes in organizational culture, business transformation, conflict resolution, leadership, and non-kinetic strategy. In this video, Brafman discusses how we need to be agile, and this is only done with agile leaders. Agility is not a trait that can be easily taught, instead, think about creating a network and different nodes of the network are activated depending on the context of the situation.
Ori Brafman's seminal work, The Starfish and the Spider: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations, is cited by the U.S. military as the foundation for a successful campaign to counter Al Qaeda. Its concepts have been implemented by Fortune 500 companies and the U.S. government, and it is considered the basis for blockchain technologies. Ori’s recent best-selling book, Radical Inclusion: What the Post-9/11 World Should Have Taught Us About Leadership, examines today’s leadership landscape and argues that inclusion is no longer a “nice-to-have”, but a strategic imperative in the digital world.
