XL: Exponential Leadership

The Exponential Leadership Framework

Our XL Client Work

New Decade, New Challenges. We built Pikkal & Co to advise and support Leadership, giving them the knowledge, mindset and channels of communication to influence, connect and engage in this New Decade. We call this The Exponential Era (get our XL Book for more details).

Our Insights, Development and Podcasting services are built on the XL Framework – the 3 Qualities Leaders need in The Exponential Era:

1) Authenticity
2) Authority
3) Agility

Leaders and the Conversations they have that demonstrate these 3 Qualities become the Experience partners, customers and employees have of the brand. Leaders don’t scale, Leadership Conversations do.

That’s why we offer Insights to help Leaders understand the challenges ahead, Development to equip them with the key skills and mindsets, and Podcasts to give them the tools to amplify their voice.

XI: Exponential Insights

XI gives Leaders an understanding the key Macro trends and challenges shaping business in The Exponential Era. We speak at industry conferences and run private presentations for company teams.

Our core speaking themes cover the 3 Exponential Macros (outlined in our XL Book) that are radically disrupting industry today:

1) Exponential Technology (Artificial Intelligence)
2) Exponential Connectivity (Big Data, IOT, Mobility)
3) Exponential Asia (The Asian Century, Asian Hypercompetition).
