Unleash hidden superpower: tame company’s wild side.
Imagine your company as a dormant primal force ready to be awakened. This recalls the timeless wisdom of Niccolo Machiavelli, who once observed, “Without danger, no great achievement is possible.” This inherent ferocity can be a source of awe and respect among your business peers, potentially catapulting you to unprecedented heights of success. However, it needs to be mastered and harnessed. As Peter Drucker pointed out, “Entrepreneurs continually seek change, respond to it, and utilize it as an opportunity.”
In the volatile arena of business, it requires a visionary leader to transform chaos into opportunity. By embracing your company’s wild side, you can fuel innovation and propel your organization to new frontiers. To unleash this hidden prowess, consider the following strategies:
- Embrace the chaos: Echoing Henry Adams’ words in his 1918 book “Educating Henry Adams,” “Chaos is the law of nature; Order is the dream of man.” Utilize the unpredictable nature of your business as a catalyst for creativity.
- Become a change-maker: As the driving force of your organization, take the reins in managing this wild side and transforming it into an advantage. This will empower you and cultivate a culture of change. Albert Einstein wisely pointed out, “The world we have created is a result of our thoughts. It can only be changed when we change our thinking” (Einstein, 1955).
- Foster resilience: Cultivate a robust team that can adapt quickly, reflecting the philosophy of Nelson Mandela, who believed in resilience as he said, “Assess me not by my victories, but by how many times I stumbled and rose again.”
By implementing these strategies, you can control your organization’s primal force and channel it for the greater good. As Peter Senge insightfully observed, “People do not resist change. They resist being changed!”
So, put on your cape, step up, and control the inner corporate beast. Release this hidden superpower and witness your organization ascend to new heights.
