Entrepreneurs Reframe Failure as Intentional Iteration - Forbes | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Beth Kanter's curator insight, January 30, 2013 4:50 PM

Good definition of failure


Failure in the entrepreneurial vernacular is reframed as intentional iteration and experimentation.  It’s not failure in the catastrophic sense.  Failure is simply a portfolio of setbacks, false starts, wrong turns, and mistakes that are expected and tolerated because the entrepreneur purposefully iterates in order to gather new, relevant, and timely information.  Through iteration entrepreneurs seek not to kill an idea but to make it better, and this happens through an anticipated cycle of pivoting and adapting.


Don't use the F word, simply pressing and unimportant.

I'm a big Dan Pink fan.  I read this  book as soon as I got it. And I keep going back to it.  In today's economy we all are in sales in one way or another.  Pink helps us think about what we need to be effective. His ABCs are: Attunement, Buoyancy and Clarity. With a solid dose of Pitch and Serve thrown in after .

(From the article): When was the last time you sat in on an operations or planning meeting, simply as a resource, and not as the boss? How did your team react? Were they comfortable and relaxed with you around, or did it all seem forced, a little like playacting?

 

In reviewing the four behaviors above, did you experience a sinking feeling of recognition in more than one? If so, it might be time to reverse course.

It’s Not About the Bike: A Lesson from Lance Armstrong

It’s Not About the Bike: A Lesson from Lance Armstrong | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Lance Armstrong once wrote: “I believed I had a responsibility to be a good person, and that meant fair, honest, hardworking and honorable. If I did that, if I was good to my family, true to my friends, if I gave back to my community or to some cause, if I wasn't a liar, a cheat, or a thief, then I believed that should be enough.”


Via donhornsby
David Hain's insight:

I think Don has it just right - we need some control or feedback mechanism that we are prepared to listen to.  Without that, or more likely without listening to that, we are very vulnerable to our darker side vanquishing the light we all have.

more...
donhornsby's curator insight, January 29, 2013 8:51 AM

(From the article): Without a strong hold on intrinsic values like humility, respect, truthfulness, patience and honor, we leave the door open for corruption and fraud. Changing what we value, changes everything. More to the point, it changes the choices we make. Choices build the life we lead and the legacy we leave. 

When it’s all about the win, we lose. Good values and solid character build a firm foundation for wins that can’t be taken away.

donhornsby's curator insight, January 29, 2013 8:22 AM

(From the article): At your next work meeting or family gathering, enter the environment wearing “strengths goggles.” This means walk in with a mindset to look for strengths as they occur. Spot your co-worker asking lots of questions (curiosity) or collaborating on a project (teamwork). Notice when your mother puts her arm around you when she speaks (love) or when your brother keeps the family entertained with a funny story (humor).

 

After you spot the strength(s), if the timing is right, tell the person how you value their strength use. Express your appreciation. Name the strength that you saw them use and share the rationale for your observation.

PwC's Annual Global CEO Survey - 2013

PwC's Annual Global CEO Survey - 2013 | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
In PwC's Global CEO Survey, CEOs discuss how to be agile in a volatile economic climate, turn adversity into opportunity, be more socially aware, and gain competitive edge.

 

What are CEOs doing to make their organisations more resilient in a complex and rapidly changing competitive environment?

How confident do CEOs feel given the state of the economy?

Where do CEOs see the best immediate opportunities for business growth?

PwC’s Annual Global CEO Survey, now in its sixteenth year, aims to inform and stimulate the debate on how businesses are facing today’s challenges. Over the years, thousands of CEOs around the world have taken the time to share their views with us.

 

In total, we conducted 1,330 interviews with CEOs in 68 countries between 5 September and 4 December 2012. By region, 449 interviews were conducted in Asia Pacific, 312 in Western Europe, 227 in North America, 165 in Latin America, 95 in Central and Eastern Europe, 50 in Africa and 32 in the Middle East. The interviews were spread across a range of industries, with further details by region and industry, available on request.

 

To better appreciate CEOs’ perspectives for 2013, we also conducted in-depth interviews with 33 CEOs from five continents over the fourth quarter of 2012, and more extensive extracts can be found in this website where you can explore responses by sector and location.
