Terry is the Managing Principal of the consultancy, ON Inc. He has been on twenty boards over the years. Now, he is on five boards, and he is the holder of several patents. After leaving Travelocity, Terry figured out a great career for himself, where he could be a speaker and a board member. He also consulted for several years.For Terry, being curious is the key to success. Success, particularly in technology, is about being curious enough to put different pieces together in a new way to create more value.Culture and having a team of people who want change and drive innovation forward are vital. Those are the two most important parts of innovation. Creating a culture where you allow failure is critical. It is usually the project that fails- not the person. It is imperative to build a culture where you take a risk, be more agile, and make decisions quicker.During Covid, digital disruption accelerated. And new business models emerged. The companies that will be successful coming out of Covid will be the ones that understand that those disruptions are permanent. And get on board. Many companies are now writing contracts for outcomes. And subscriptions are on the rise.The new business models are supported by new technologies which are a combination of AI, 5G, and IoT. Those are technologies revolutionizing manufacture.Terry believes that new technologies combined with new business models are giving companies new life and new leverage. Selling outcomes involves finding out what your customer's goals are and then figuring out what you, as a salesperson, can do to get them there. Manufacturing is becoming componentized. Manufacturers are outsourcing parts of their factories to people selling various components. Then they are putting all the necessary components together for specific outcomes.When looking at innovation and disruption, the number one mistake that Terry sees companies making is that they tend to limit innovation. People need to be left to innovate. And then they need to celebrate their successes and their failures.Acceleration happens in companies where people feel okay about trying something out without any fear of it failing. Leaders always need to welcome and listen to any new ideas. They could even create incentive programs to encourage people to come up with new ideas. And circulate any new ideas widely within the company. Cloud-connected innovation with disparate products is driving everybody now-even consumer products.People in sales always need to keep looking for a new edge. And they need to remember that the old methods also work. Terry’s quotes:“I think what’s key is being curious.”“I’m always curious about new things.”“One of the great things about speaking as I do now, on disruption, is I speak to so many industries.” “Success, particularly in technology, is about being curious enough to put different pieces together in a new way to create more value.”“Culture and team are the two most important parts of innovation.”“Creating a culture where you allow failure is critical.”Links and resources:Terry Jones’s websiteTerry Jones’s books:ON InnovationDisruption OFFBooks mentioned:The Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs by Carmine GalloThe Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs by Carmine Gallo

Ep 90 | Terry Jones - Retired Canadian Naval Submarine Captain, UN Peacekeeper, & Renowned Leader
The Weekly Call
Today we’re joined by Terry Jones: a man with an incredible track record of leadership over his 31 years in the military, of which, 12 were spent as the captain of a 70-man submarine crew. We brought Terry on to share some stories and give his perspective on the traits that make a great leader. His compassionate & relationship-focused approach to leadership roles is not what you'd expect to see in the military, but in the closed environment of a submarine (not dissimilar to a small business) this approach proved to be very effective for maintaining morale and group cohesion. It’s clear from this conversation that leadership is not a power that can be given to you with a job title. It is a power that you must earn over time by consistently proving your knowledge and earning the respect of others around you. The takeaways from this interview can be applied in all areas of your life, but most notably in the businesses that we all run and the various relationships we have to manage daily.

Today’s guest is Terry Jones, founder of Kayak and Travelocity, author of Disruption Off and Innovation On. Terry is a digital disruptor, and venture capitalist with a deep knowledge of what it takes to change and thrive in a changing industry. We discuss with Terry what thought leaders and keynote speakers who have been disrupted by COVID-19 should be thinking about. We explore methods to continue delivering content, examine why price should be protected even when delivering digital content, and what types of speakers might be hardest hit. If you are a speaker and thought leader wondering how to continue working, worrying about the future of large scale meetings, and the communities that host them this is a conversation you won’t want to miss. Three Key Takeaways: Thought leaders need to find a way to deliver quality digital productions from home. If the content of your thought leadership has not changed then the price should not be deeply slashed, even while delivering it remotely. Corporations will still want thought leadership, but you’ll have to be clear about the value you offer.
