Sunday, August 22, 2010 20:17

How do you lead in turbulent times and respond to change? At every moment, we can choose to let our circumstances shape our lives and business or we can shape our circumstances. Being a winner is a choice, not a condition of your circumstances. Change is inevitable – growth is optional. The only thing we know about the future is that it will be different.

Here are 10 pre-requisites for organisational growth and success.

1. Differentiation – If you don’t have a competitive advantage, don’t compete.

2. Adversity, Attitude – Falling is not failing, unless you fail to get up.

3. Velocity, Visionary – The speed of the boss is the speed of the team.

4. Ideas, Creativity, Innovation – If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.

5. Dependable right people - Hire people better than you

6. World Wide Web, internet marketing & social network - It used to be that if you wanted sophisticated marketing tools, you had to be rich. That’s not the case on the Internet. Anyone can compete, just at different levels.

7. Energy - In order to succeed, your desire to success should be greater than your fear of
failure.

8. Enthusiasm – There is no way around it. You absolutely must have fun. Without fun,
there is no enthusiasm. Without enthusiasm, there is no energy.

9. Mindset – learn, unlearn & relearn. Go beyond yourself. Your habits. Your standards. Challenge your limiting beliefs. Find a way to do more today than you did yesterday.

10. Emotional Intelligence – the right way at the right time. If you don’t know where you are going, any path will get you there.
