Empathy: the Key to Successful Startup Communities

Empathy: the Key to Successful Startup Communities | Startup | Scoop.it
Empathy and a true understanding of the other is critical to building flourishing startup communities.

 

Empathy is often looked down upon in the business world because it is seen as antithetical to the modern day corporate environment (competitive, cutthroat, ladder to the top, etc.). However, it is one of the most important values that an organization can adopt and promote as part of its company culture. Empathy at its basest form is that ability to connect with and relate to others. This means we have to adopt a stance that goes beyond just seeing and hearing what goes on around us and truly seek to understand the logical and emotional reasoning of the people around us.

 

The notion of empathy being critical to business is not new; Ashoka has deemed empathy as the force that drives business; Forbes called empathy invaluable to business; and the Guardian deemed it the last big business taboo that needs to be overcome.

Man, it is so easy to make mistakes when doing content marketing for a small business.  If I had a dollar for every mistake I could have a really nice vacation!  Or maybe cashflow, that would be nice.

 

Anyway, check out the post.

Everybody’s doing it. Sound familiar? It should. It’s brain science. People tend to do what other people are doing. Psychologists call this conformity, herd behavior, or the bandwagon effect.

Superman as an entrepreneur? Not exactly, but you just may walk away from Man of Steel with inspiration for your business.

Over the weekend my wife and I and a friend saw Man of Steel--the latest reboot of the Superman franchise. Note: Spoilers below! If you haven't seen the movie yet, you might want to stop reading. But then again, it's Superman. You probably know the story already.

From intuition to creation

From intuition to creation | Startup | Scoop.it

It’s a classic case of “theory to practice.” My previous book, Strategic Intuition, laid out the theory. It explained the science of how creative ideas happen in the human mind and documented how successful innovators actually came up with their innovations. This new book, Creative Strategy, is the practice: it shows how to apply that theory as an innovation method yourself.

Ten Top Techniques For Startup Valuation

Ten Top Techniques For Startup Valuation | Startup | Scoop.it

Once you have a potential investor excited about your team, your product, and your company, the investor will inevitably ask “What is your company’s valuation?” Many entrepreneurs stumble at this point, losing the deal or most of their ownership, by having no answer, or quoting an exorbitant and indefensible number that convinces the investor that you don’t understand basic economics.

Everybody talks about the role small businesses play in growing economies and creating jobs. However, as it stands, in America alone, 600,000 businesses die in the vine every year. This colossal infant entrepreneur mortality is a product of colossal levels of ignorance about how to build and sustain businesses.
