Why Keeping a Resignation Letter in Your Desk Could Be a Wake-Up Call for Your Company

In the realm of digital transformation, I had an eye-opening conversation with an Operation’s Director for a public company that left me pondering. She candidly revealed that she keeps a resignation letter in her desk drawer, ready to pull out whenever her executive colleagues reject the necessity of embracing AI and big data to enhance customer experience.


Imagine that: a leader willing to walk away because she couldn't bear the inertia around tech adoption.


Why Keeping a Resignation Letter in Your Desk Could Be a Wake-Up Call for Your Company

Firstly, I'd like to express my gratitude to this Operations Director for sharing her perspective. This tale underscores how drastically a company can fail if it ignores the digital imperative. She recalled joining when it was a €billion revenue business; upon her exit in 2018, the revenue had plummeted to a mere €100k.


This leads me to a valuable, actionable insight:

As leaders, we can't afford to sleepwalk through the digital revolution. In a rapidly evolving landscape, even a seasoned CEO needs to play the student's role. Engage a digital coach, upskill yourself and your team, and create a culture of constant learning. Failing to do so doesn't just stymie progress—it risks the entire business.


So, I ask you: Is your organization digitally literate, or is it time you also penned a wake-up call?
