PALO ALTO, Calif., May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's digital era, it's no longer an option for company executives to remain at arm's length from employees, customers or partners. True leaders must push beyond their comfort zone to interact with and listen to their followers via the latest digital technologies. Next week's upcoming Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: JIVE) webinar titled "How to Lead in the Era of Digital Transformation" will feature Altimeter Group's Charlene Li and Kristy Sundjaja of LivePerson, who will address this topic, including the top digital challenges companies face today and how leaders can adapt to succeed.
Li is an expert on leadership, social technologies and interactive media, and will share valuable insights from her most recently published book, "The Engaged Leader: A Strategy for your Digital Transformation." She will be joined by Kristy Sundjaja, who will explain how live chat software provider LivePerson is using a Jive-n social intranet to help its senior management meaningfully connect with 1,200 globally dispersed employees and build a collaborative, cohesive culture. The webinar will include a question and answer session covering the digital transformation imperative, and tips for learning both the art and science of becoming an engaged leader.
"In order to successfully navigate the ever-changing terrain of the digital era, executives and their advisors must recognize that digital relationships are no longer optional. The most effective leaders are completely transforming how they engage with their workforces via digital channels," said Li. "Only management teams that move past excuse-making and find ways to listen at scale, share, and authentically connect will reap the business rewards of strategic alignment and employee engagement."
LivePerson is one of several organizations — including BG Group, Devoteam, EMC, FICO, Lafarge, McAfee, Nuance, Northwestern University, Pearson, SunEdison, Thomson Reuters and T-Mobile — that use Jive's communication and collaboration solutions to foster connected enterprises. The Jive-n internal community software empowers engaged leaders by helping them easily stay abreast of employee feedback and ideas, while keeping their workforce informed, productive and tightly aligned.
