Harvard Business Review said, “To be a leader you must be self-aware, self-regulating, motivated, empathetic, and social.” This is the final product of a leader, but not the ingredients to build one. It takes a group of supporters, individuals who are empowering wellsprings of encouragement, and others grab onto the motivation and thus turn that Harvard Business Review model of a leader.
In 2015, along with many other business leaders, I founded The Scotland Summit. It was a great event that captured and shared ideas through strategic talks with the audience. My presentation titled, Can We Fly, explored the entrepreneurial lifestyle and with dedication we can push onward to innovation. Due to the great response from the presentation and those in attendance, I decided to write a book to dive further into the topic.
Our society is shifting to a task for hire workforce. Look at the popularity of Uber for instance, it gives drivers a way to earn revenue for each person they pick up. Anyone can participate in that and accessibility for consumers is increased with lower prices. It is great for both the drivers, who earn extra income and consumers, who save a lot more money than calling a cab.
You have a great idea for a business and are working on establishing a business plan. To have a really effective business plan, you need more than just an internal team. There are so many business elements you are going to need help with and hiring all of the people as part of your staff, will max out your overhead. For startups and even large corporations, there are key advisors that you need to contract and consult with, then incorporate their advise into your business plan.
One topic that I discussed at the 2015 Scotland Summit was the importance of sharing knowledge with others. Many people hold back and are afraid to share their experiences, failures, and knowledge with those around them. Not sharing your experiences with those that you manage and those that you encounter is the worst thing that you can do.
Ray Kurzweil, defined the law of accelerating returns. What this means is that machine logic grows exponentially in each step that it takes. Human knowledge without sharing is linear, which means if you take 30 steps in growth, you are 30 steps farther. If we take 30 steps exponentially, you can reach a billion steps farther. This law that applies the machine logic can apply to human knowledge if we share with others. Computers gain information and share it among sophisticated networks and continue to grow in the knowledge that it gathers. By sharing our knowledge among our interpersonal networks, my thoughts are that we can achieve this as well.
