11 Ways Successful People Overcome Uncertainty

11 Ways Successful People Overcome Uncertainty | Management Plus | Scoop.it

Our brains are hardwired to make much of modern life difficult. This is especially true when it comes to dealing with uncertainty. On the bright side, if you know the right tricks, you can override your brain’s irrational tendencies and handle uncertainty effectively.


Our brains give us fits when facing uncertainty because they’re wired to react to it with fear. In a recent study, a Caltech neuroeconomist imaged subjects’ brains as they were forced to make increasingly uncertain bets—the same kind of bets we’re forced to make on a regular basis in business.

Stop Distinguishing Between Execution and Strategy

Stop Distinguishing Between Execution and Strategy | Management Plus | Scoop.it

Consider the recent article, “Why Strategy Execution Unravels — and What to Do About It“ by Donald Sull, Rebecca Homkes, and Charles Sull, in the March 2015 issue of HBR.  Articles like this are well meaning and all set out to overcome the shortfalls of “execution.” But they all fail, including this one, and for the same reason: you can’t prescribe a fix for something that you can’t describe. And no one can describe “strategy execution” in a way that does not conflict with “strategy.”

 

Blaming poor execution for the failure of your “brilliant” strategy is a part of what I’ve termed “The Execution Trap” — how “brilliant” can your strategy really be if it wasn’t implementable?

Both are distinct and yet complement each other. It goes without saying that strategy precedes executions!

Ian Berry's curator insight, March 19, 2015 12:16 AM

I have a totally opposite view What I've learned from my clients doing is that thinking about strategy and execution at the same thing is a recipe for disaster. Sure they're are inextricably linked, They are two sides of the coin and yet vastly different. In simple terms strategy is about how you're going to move from here to there and execution is about who will do what, and when. You need to be well aware of capability when thinking about strategy. Developing your execution plan and enabling each of your employees to create and own their unique piece is a different exercise to creating the strategy which if its to be the right strategy needs employee and other stakeholders input too

Haidee Calore's curator insight, March 27, 2015 11:36 AM

get often get trapped thinking that strategy and execution are distinct processes. Good article to remind us that strategy is really a part of execution. Be sure to read the comments. They are as good, if not better than the article itself.

The Secret Ingredient To A Productive And Satisfying Career

The Secret Ingredient To A Productive And Satisfying Career | Management Plus | Scoop.it

Daniel Kim was the CEO at online game company Nexon America when he had a career epiphany that changed his life. His mentor Bill Moggridge, founder of the design firm IDEO, had recently passed away. It was at Moggridge's memorial service at Stanford in 2012 when Kim had a moment of clarity: What was most important to him wasn't being at the top of his field or making as much money as possible, it was doing meaningful design work—the kind of work he simply couldn’t do as CEO at a gaming company.

 

Kim did the math. If a design project takes three to four months and he had between 25 to 30 years left in his career, he realized he only had time for about 100 new projects. Put in those terms, time, he realized, was of the essence.

Tim Carr, an American working for a defense company based in the midwestern United States, was about to enter a sensitive bargaining session with a high-level Saudi Arabian customer, but he wasn’t particularly concerned. Carr was an experienced negotiator and was well-trained in basic principles: Separate the people from the problem. Define your BATNA (best alternative to a negotiated agreement) up front. Focus on interests, not positions. He’d been there, read that, and done the training.
