Lead From the Outside In with James Hickey

James Hickey guides the world's most daring business leaders on their most challenging journeys. On his own journey to success, he traveled across the globe to work with thousands of market-leading businesses— from local independent firms, magic circle law firms, and SMEs, to the Big 4 and Fortune 100 companies.

 Now, James has founded Business Vision Consulting to change the way businesses do business, by leading them to embrace what works and eliminate what doesn't— to grow their fortunes as well as their fulfillment. As the founding director of this revolutionary consultancy, James Hickey molds commercial minds, catapults renowned reputations, creates unparalleled opportunities— and helps companies be seen.

In this episode…

When you first open your doors, only opportunity awaits— but that thrill quickly dissipates. Imagine if every day of business was as exciting as your first. The bitter reality of the corporate world is that more often than not, the enthusiasm fades, and sales decline. As businesses and leadership roles evolve, leaders lose sight of the purpose that drove them to their work in the first place. Unfortunately, numerous professional services firms never even started with a clearly defined vision. Now, as businesses across the globe encounter crisis, they must rediscover their mission and passion to adapt and survive in the face of formidable change.

In this episode of Drive Profit with Purpose, Fran Biderman-Gross talks to James Hickey, the founder and director of Business Vision Consulting, about the leadership techniques that every leader needs to thrive in unprecedented times.

While it’s too early to tell which brands will emerge from the global pandemic unscathed, James suggests that the leaders who stand the best chance are the ones who lead “from the outside in,” and master the basics. He draws from his own leadership and consulting experience to explain the reinvigorated value of reflection, alignment, openness, and agility in a world of unknowns. Stay Tuned.
