Learning Business Leadership Lessons From The Superheroes

Learning Business Leadership Lessons From The Superheroes | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it
Your favorite superhero has the power to save your business too. It's time for the business owners to take lessons from superheroes, and implement them in order to achieve success.

Via Martin (Marty) Smith
Samuel Pavin's insight:

A great, visual, and smart post compiling accurate pieces of advice for anybody out there but also entrepreneurs.

Not everybody is a ninja or guru or whatever sexy name will come in the future but everybody has strenghts and weaknesses.

Identifying them, acknowledging them and working with or around them is key to make the most out of everyday.

So, are you a Wolverine ?

Anh VU's curator insight, August 30, 2013 6:51 AM

The 198x Vietnamese generation (in their early 30s now) grew up with Tsubasa, Teppi, Dragon Balls, Doraemon, TKKG. Mostly about friendship &  hardworking spirit than super hero.

 

Quote from article: "Do you remember spending sleepless nights as a kid, reading your favorite superhero comic books? If you do, then you might also remember that “giving up” is not what the superheroes teach us. Well, no one is going to get a neutron laser or an indestructible shield for sure! However, there are some effective and invaluable lessons every business owner can learn from his favorite superhero, and implement them on the business battlefield."

Startup Advice

Startup Advice | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it
Samuel Pavin's insight:

Back to startups, a wonderful list of advice, by Sam Altman, on his blog. 

Well, that sure is a list of almost 100 advice but all valid anyway. Still those might not be applicable to everybody or every situation but if startup is anywhere around your mind, make use of these as a checklist.

Not all, just pick 10 to 20 and make them your own checklist for success.

Hungry Entrepreneurs Always Seem To Find Capital

Hungry Entrepreneurs Always Seem To Find Capital | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it
Every startup needs access to capital, whether for funding product development, for initial rollout efforts, acquiring inventory, or paying that first employee. Most entrepreneurs think first of bank loans as the primary source of money, only to find out that banks are really the least likely benefactors for startups. Thus “creative” really means maximizing non-bank financing. While sizing up the alternatives, I couldn’t help but pick up a recent book by Karlene Sinclair-Robinson with the creative title of “Spank the Bank: The Guide to Alternative Business Financing.” She plumbs the range of possibilities she has gained through personal experience as…

Getting Revenue From Unhappy Customers | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it

Bad profits are a ticking time bomb. Customers who are dissatisfied with the service or quality of a product are not only less likely to repurchase it, they are also more likely to tell their friends about the bad experience.


Via Mario K. Sakata
Samuel Pavin's insight:

As startups tend to show it these days, quality has to come back in the mix and the time bomb sales should definitely be banned ... at least not encouraged.

Amar Bhat's curator insight, June 2, 8:03 AM

This scenario was described very well some years back by Clayton Christensen in his book "The Innovator's Dilemma".  Its well-founded that large companies get trapped by the need to generate incremental improvements in their product line because of their previous investments. That leaves an opportunity for an upstart/startup to come in with a disruptive technology and take away significant market share.
