The Fractional C-Suite Retreat

The Future of Technology - Fractional C-Suite Retreat - Episode # 018

March 22, 2022

Frederick Akpoghene is the CEO/Founder at JeGO Technologies Inc. He knows how deep tech works and he is passionate about using technology to better the lives of everyone. Frederick sits down with host Joseph Frost to talk about some of the innovations that he sees in the c-suite space. 

 

Takeaways 

  • The biggest opportunity that people in the c-suite are missing is making each employee feel like a valued member of the team. Doing this will help mitigate turn over and reduce how often you have to hire.
  • Everyone has to work together as a team. You might have some separate individual goals, everyone in the company should share the same ultimate goal. 
  • Each person in your company is a different person, and they might respond to leadership in different ways. It’s your job to understand them and find the best way to communicate with them.
  • Meeting with people through VR can allow for a deeper connection with the co-worker or client, as it gives you a better sense of interaction.
  • You want to find ways to maximize your time. Your time is precious and you want to make sure you are getting everything you can out of it.
  • As Mark Cuban said, business is a 24/7 sport. You can’t take time off from it and expect to still be at the top of your game.
  • You need to change people’s minds. You have to get them to start thinking about the solution to the problems that they are experiencing.

 

 

Quote of the Show:

 

6:06  “I like to get personal, even though a lot of the typical approach in corporate America is not getting too personal, more so understanding the person like how's your family, why are you up to one o'clock working on the company, do you have a friend, hobbies, what are other things that you like to do and enjoy it? Every conversation I wanted to take something away about that person so I can improve my leadership approach with them.”
