Not the Same Story – AGAIN! by Ivy Cohen

Writing new thought leadership articles on widely covered issues can be challenging. But when done in a way that establishes your unique voice, it offers the opportunity to gain visibility and recognition among your target audience, peers, and stakeholders. In a landscape saturated with discussions about important issues like AI in the workplace, sustainability initiatives, and DEI there’s an opportunity to move beyond surface-level conversations and delve into viewpoints that challenge the status quo.

The Modern CEO is Fit, Social and Engaging by Ivy Cohen

CEOs express many different styles and cultures. As I peruse the landscape of today’s top executives, I find there is a growing and distinct group that presents as a new Modern CEO. This is the CEO whose professional and personal life reflect the characteristics of younger generations of employees and customers – regardless of his or her age. It is someone who is a trendsetter or early adopter. This leader is not locked into traditional or established ways of doing and looking at things. It’s someone who experiences and understands what is buzzing in the marketplace.
