#Business? Why it's time to go learn #surfing | The Upcoming World | Scoop.it
We had been invited to hold a workshop at the Bocconi University in Milan, Italy. It was within an AIESEC event, the Youth To Business Forum, focusing on youth and the new world of work. I was definitely going to catch this chance of dancing with young, thirsty and vivid brains. I always love to. And I was going to share the wave with a good friend and colleague of mine, such as Michele Luconi.As it often happens we had not talked about what to say that day, let alone what to do. And the day had arrived. Michele sent me a message via whatsapp, I called him and went: “Mike, I have the ti

About fear, ego and eco-systems. | The Upcoming World | Scoop.it
Hello world! My first post here on LinkedIn. Business as usual? Nah! Let’s get straight to the point. I’d like your feedback on something I really care about.There’s a perspective on my work I had not noticed yet. In the last few months I’ve begun to observe that at the end of the day my work is mostly about delivering a stream of "don't be afraid" adjustments. In fact, it turns out that what I help understanding, accepting and implementing within each organisation is basically a refra

7 steps to thriving: be #lean, #open and #inclusive

7 steps to thriving: be #lean, #open and #inclusive | The Upcoming World | Scoop.it
I’ve been asked to speak at a business innovation event in Paris a few weeks ago. The topic of my contribution was “The value-stream driven enterprise”.I wanted to use just a few minutes speaking, and the rest of the time conversing with the audience. Therefore, even though I usually don’t like the “#-steps” recipes, I’ve been focusing my intro on really a few key concepts. Not an easy task though. I'm definitely one of the less-is-more kind when it comes to important things in my work, and I've learnt how difficult it is to have a good synthesis of c

Being an entrepreneur isn’t for everyone though making decisions like one gives you the advantage especially when you’re faced with uncertain outcomes or conflicting information. To confuse matters more, the stalwart reference for traditional business thinkers is the Harvard Business Review, which, unfortunately, stands by rational decision making because you can’t control those pesky biases and your unreliable intuition. The simple reality is that when stakes are high, conditions are dynamic, a
