The Function of Disruption and Organic Growth Through Employee Interaction

C-Suite TV's Executive Perspectives July Programming Talks Disruption, Innovation and Creating a Great Culture for Employees to Think Big and Outside the Box

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jul 20, 2016) - Executive Perspectives, one of the top online business shows on C-Suite TV, has announced their July programming. Executive Perspectives will feature one-on-one interviews with Jay Samit, former CEO of SeaChange International and author of Disrupt Yourself, and Matt Preschern, Executive Vice President and CMO of HCL Technologies.

Jay Samit, a best-selling author and former CEO of SeaChange International, sat down with Jeffrey Hayzlett to talk about the definition of being a disruptor and why it is important for companies, regardless of industry. Samit defines disruption as "a change where you never go back." He adds that "the rate of pace of change has never been this fast, but with the tools at your disposal, you only have to be right for a nanosecond to become a billionaire."

Samit gives away the "secret" to disruption, which is looking at yourself differently. If you can change yourself, you can change your business. However, he warns that many people seem to confuse disruption with innovation and that couldn't be further from the truth. If you're looking to be a disruptor, you must apply 'SoLoMo': Social, Local, and Mobile.

  • Social is a 24/7 live dialogue with your customers, brand, and everyone else
  • Local is the ability to reach everyone -- geographically or demographically, in order to find a new markets
  • Mobile refers to being one click away from six billion people at any given point

Matt Preschern is the Executive Vice President and CMO at HCL Technologies, a company with a $7 billion, mostly organic, growth. Preschern attributes that growth to a fundamental belief of putting employees first so they will deliver superior interactions. Their creed of "trust, transparency, and flexibility" is the foundation of everything else they will accomplish as a business.

With over one hundred and five thousand employees worldwide, HCL Technologies has tapped into their own employees as a revenue source. In the last year, they have generated $500 million in revenue from employee ideas alone. They put great effort into tapping, not just employee ideas, but customer ideas as well with an yearly online forum in which ideas are submitted for consideration. At the end of the 3-month period, those ideas are used to shape different programs throughout the company, creating an environment, culture, and leadership style that empowers employees to go above and beyond.

Another aspect that has contributed to its growth has been using time zones to gain a competitive advantage. Being a global company has allowed work teams -- here in the U.S. and abroad, to work during the fringe hours of the day. Also, having their leadership team scattered all over the globe, rather than just at their headquarters, has proved extremely beneficial. Employees feel like the leadership team is in tune with their daily activities, customer interactions and their day-to-day operations.

All episodes of Executive Perspectives are hosted by Jeffrey Hayzlett and can be seen throughout the month on C-Suite TV.

Best-selling author, speaker, and former Fortune 100 CMO Jeffrey Hayzlett created C-Suite TV to give top-tier business executives a forum for sharing thought-provoking insights, in-depth business analysis, and their compelling personal narratives.

"I'm looking forward to this month's programming because it'll give our audience a clear understanding of how to be effectively disruptive in their business dealings, in any industry," Hayzlett said. "Both Jay Samit and Matt Preschern have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to thinking outside the box to create something that'll solve their customers' pain points while creating a unique culture that allows exponential growth."
