12 Top Tips to prove IC value and become a strategic advisor

About this Guide

Many IC people believe they are perceived as not adding value, that they don’t have enough time to be more strategic, they’re too much ‘in the weeds’ and their roles are reactive rather than strategic. In Jim Shaffer's webinar with Poppulo, he simplified what can too often seem too complex, easing through how to break down those perceptions and use opportunities to add provable value. We've taken the wonderful insights and some of the fascinating real-life case studies to create what we believe is a very useful tip sheet for IC people – and senior leaders.

Key Takeaways:

  • What senior leaders want to hear from their IC people
  • How to get your leaders on board
  • Building a business case
