The Value Proposition Canvas

The Value Proposition Canvas | Business change | Scoop.it

There is no practical tool that helps business people map, think through, discuss, test, and pivot their company’s value proposition in relationship to their customers’ needs.

 

The Value Proposition Canvas is like a plug-in tool to the Business Model Canvas. It helps you design, test, and build your company’s Value Proposition to Customers in a more structured and thoughtful way, just like the Canvas assists you in the business model design process

THE GREATEST PROBLEM OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE REACHED SOMETHING

THE GREATEST PROBLEM OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE REACHED SOMETHING | Business change | Scoop.it

Our society has many great leaders - leaders who have something to say, who are respected and people trust in their opinion. But too many of them take themselves too seriously, they believe the own influence and press - they trust in BEING SOMEONE. They should never forget that they started at the bottom as a positional leader and they also started from zero.
They got successful because other people helped them along the way.
Only through building effective relationships we are able to be successful.

Leaders often don't use the opportunity to making an impact

So many good leaders are not able to give back, to help others to succeed, to develop other leaders. They do not use the opportunity to making an impact beyond their tenure and beyond their lifetimes. 

Here the levels of leadership (according to "5 Levels of Leadership" of +John Maxwell):

1.) Position - people follow because they have to (RIGHTS)
2.) Permission - people follow you because they want to (RELATIONSHIPS)
3.) Production - people follow because of what you have done (for the organization) (RESULTS)
4.) People Development - people follow because of what you have done for them (REPRODUCTION)
5.) Pinnacle - people follow because of who you are and what you represent
(RESPECT)

+John Maxwell says:
Leaders at this level of leadership (level 5 in leadership = the Pinnacle) need to be a good model to everyone by valuing people, continuing to grow, practicing the golden rule, being authentic, exhibiting good values and living out the right priorities. Level 5 leaders have a platform to lead and to persuade. Whenever possible they should use it to pass on those things that have helped them to succeed. 

LEADERS SHOULD STRIVE TO LEAVE A POSITIVE LEGACY, USING THEIR INFLUENCE TO CREATE A BETTER WORLD.

What you daily do becomes your legacy! Decide wisely what will become your legacy and live according to that!

Here a guide for level 5 leaders:

➛ Remain humble and teachable. Write a credo for learning that you will follow every day.

➛ Maintain your core focus. 

➛ Create the right inner circle to keep you grounded. Reward people with loyalty, love, protection, leadership, money, etc.

➛ There are always a handful of things that only the top leaders can do for their organization. Think these responsibilities through and make them a high priority.

➛ Create a supercharged leadership development environment. 

➛ Create room at the top for potential leaders. Make room by giving existing top leaders new challenges.

➛ Develop top leaders. Set aside one-on-one time every week to work with the best leaders.

➛ Plan your succession. Focus on developing the few who have the potential to succeed you.

➛ Plan your legacy. Start doing whatever you must to fulfill it.

➛ Use your leadership success as a platform for something greater. As a Pinnacle leader, people outside your organization and industry will seek your advice. Leverage that to benefit others outside your direct sphere of influence.

Street Smart Disciplines Every Entrepreneur Needs

Street Smart Disciplines Every Entrepreneur Needs | Business change | Scoop.it

An entrepreneur needs to be street smart, however many who commence businesses, have not had the time or experiences to be as street smart as they need to be in order to survive.

 

Fortunately, street smarts can be described as a series of disciplines that need to enacted, and it is possible to learn and apply these disciplines quickly, to avoid the problems that a lack of street smarts can cause for an entrepreneur.

 

This excellent article, identifies seven disciplines that can be learned and practiced, and it suggests that these may all be actually required of any business owner looking to succeed in business.

Understanding My Own “Immunity to Change”

Understanding My Own “Immunity to Change” | Business change | Scoop.it

Change is not always easy. At least, not for me.

 

Consider this:

 

I’ve recently signed up at MyFitnessPal, a site that allows me to track how much I eat and how much I exercise. I’m hoping for the best, despite my history. I’ve not done very well with diet and exercise over the last few years, and that’s being very generous. Changing both my eating and fitness regimes (both what and when), has not been something that I’ve enthusiastically embraced or—let’s face it—accomplished. Something seems to be standing in my way.

 

I think it might be me.
