A comprehensive, step-by-step guide to creating a forward-thinking blueprint for dynamic company growth from executive chairman of the internationally renowned wealth management firm Investcorp, Mohammed Alardhi.
In 2015, when Mohammad Alardhi became the executive chairman of Investcorp, a leading global manager of alternative investments, he arrived with a transformative mindset that would set the company on a path to unprecedented growth. Within three years of Alardhi taking control of the company, their wealth management grew from $10B to $25B, and three years after that, it had grown to a remarkable $42B. After seven years under Alardhi’s leadership, Investcorp was managing an astounding $50B in wealth.
In Connecting to the Future, Alardhi speaks candidly about the big thinking needed to succeed at such a large scale. From setting bold goals for your organization to questioning the status quo to recognizing that your greatest asset will always be a motivated and passionate team, he walks you through his blueprint not just for growth but for leadership, awareness, and fundamental change.
The challenge Alardhi describes in Connecting to the Future is familiar to every business leader: adapt or die. But Alardhi also answers the perennial question of how to not just succeed, but to exceed expectations on your way to continually redefining your company’s strength.
