    ETL – “The Challenger Sale” Co-Author Brent Adamson Talks Thought Leadership Research

    ETL – “The Challenger Sale” Co-Author Brent Adamson Talks Thought Leadership Research

    Brent Adamson and Matt Dixon changed the way B2B companies think about selling their products and services 13 years ago with their groundbreaking book, “The Challenger Sale," which was a bestselling sales book from the Corporate Executive Board on how to win over customers -- by challenging them to think differently about their problem and how to solve it.

    Today on Everything Thought Leadership, Brent and Bob Buday talk about lessons learned from that research. The accomplished author and researcher goes over how to navigate the often-messy process of thought leadership research, and he discusses his career post at CEB and Gartner, along with what comes next for him.

    ETL – The Editorial Lens of MIT Sloan Management Review: Abbie Lundberg

    ETL – The Editorial Lens of MIT Sloan Management Review: Abbie Lundberg

    MIT Sloan Management Review is quite selective about the content it accepts, both articles and content proposals. If you want to be an influential thought leader who publishes in a prestigious magazine like MIT SMR, you need to understand its editorial review process.

    When it comes to the editorial process, MIT SMR Editor-in-Chief Abbie Lundberg is a 40-year content publishing veteran who has seen and heard it all. She previously worked at Harvard Business Review’s Analytic Services unit and was Editor-in-Chief at CIO magazine.

    She knows it isn’t enough to simply read and draw insights from the works of other authors. Writing stand-out articles and content proposals on strategic business management issues requires deeper thinking. Tune in as Abbie discusses how you can appeal to MIT Sloan Management Review’s editorial process, the magazine’s programmatic approach to thought leadership publishing, how it taps new and established sources of break-through thinking, its view on the role of generative AI tools, and more.

    ETL – Chunka Mui on How Generative AI Will Disrupt Thought Leadership

    ETL – Chunka Mui on How Generative AI Will Disrupt Thought Leadership

    Award-winning business author Chunka Mui is keenly focused on generative A.I.’s thought leadership impact and how innovation can be used to fight climate change and social issues. Among his influential books, he co-authored the late 1990s bestseller “Unleashing the Killer App: Digital Strategies for Market Dominance.” The Wall Street Journal named it one of the five best books on the business impact of the internet.

    With five books and 25 years as a keynote speaker, Chunka is as savvy a thought leader as the innovations he covers. His most recent focus is on how to use innovative technologies to fight climate change and resolve societal issues. He has also been experimenting with generative A.I. as a tool for thought leadership dissemination.

    Everything Thought Leadership host Bob Buday and Chunka have known each other for over 30 years, going back to when they both worked for CSC Index. Come February 23, the two thought leaders will reunite to discuss Chunka’s career, the biggest changes he has seen in the thought leadership profession, how business and thought leadership have been impacted by generative A.I., and how organizations can (and should!) use thought leadership to address social issues.
