Omri Kohl: Change Artist Behind Pyramid Analytics
Written and published by Mirror Review: The 10 Most Inspiring Business Leaders, 2018
Based in Seattle, the multi-talented CEO of Pyramid Analytics, Omri Kohl believes that leadership is about risking ignorance, criticism, along with misconceptions. Furthermore, strong leaders lead by example, not by force. A charismatic leader usually has the highest emotional intelligence and a delivery mechanism that is inspiring, coupled with a sterling character. Every good leader must possess essential traits strength for taking a stand even at an unexpected position, being a patient listener, bringing about the best possible outcome from team members, and making impactful decisions based on their wisdom.
For Omri, Nelson Mandela is his ideal leader because he was a true believer in his vision and goals. The South African revolutionary leader and peace activist was known to willingly put everything on the line, risk his own freedom and life for the betterment of all. Mandela also had the true charisma that came more from his actions rather than his words. He was compassionate, a life-long learner, ethically strong, and a unifier. His humanity drew people to him through his actions, not by fear or force. People followed his vision because he challenged their status quo and offered a refreshing change. He was a true disruptor.
Sharing his personal philosophy about the multiple challenges that a leader faces as well as the effective ways to conquer them, Omri asserts, “Don’t fear to acknowledge challenges, face them, learn from them, and improve because of them every day. Make a list of your leadership goals and needs and set up objectives to achieve them. Break things down methodically and rationally, don’t let emotions get in your way.”
Since leaders in every industry face daily challenges, the CEO of Pyramid Analytics feels that it is crucial for leaders to develop managerial effectiveness with strategic thinking and timely decision-making. They must also give sufficient time to mentor, coach, and develop their employees help them work efficiently; and keep them motivated and satisfied. Active leaders must also manage internal stakeholders, relationships, politics, and image including gaining managerial support and getting buy-in from other departments, groups, and individuals.
