What’s Eating Brother Elon?

CorporateIntel

Many leaders demonstrate manic obsession in their devotion to their enterprises, and it is hard to argue a company can be at the top of its game with a standard forty hour work week. Let’s start with what needs to be said before all else: I am an enormous fan of Elon Musk. I think he is quite likely the most important and visionary entrepreneur today leading the way in technology, business, and innovation. He walks in the American continuum of Edison, Disney, Gates, and Jobs.

Is Facebook the Next AOL?

CorporateIntel

I would guess if AOL founder Steve Case had it to do over again things would have been different at his once pioneering enterprise. I used to like AOL. Back in the day we called it by its full name, America Online. Prior to the broad penetration of the Internet, it was how we connected with each other. It was the company we paid on a subscription basis for both access to digital connectivity and content.

Leading Teams Toward Success Using People, Products and Profits

CorporateIntel

If that’s not challenge enough, you can have the best team in the world and the best product in the world, but if your business model is not sensible and doesn’t sustain the enterprise, it really doesn’t matter what you set out to accomplish. I’ve written the words People, Products, Profits (In That Order!) so many times over the years it would be easy to think of them as simply a slogan I use, a catchphrase meant to pique your interest.

How That Vicious Inner Critic Can Be Your Closest Ally

CorporateIntel

A leader who won’t be deterred can bring purpose to a business enterprise. There’s something about optimism. Nothing in business is quite as powerful in motivating people to believe in a mission as a leader who undoubtedly believes. The energy that radiates from a passionate entrepreneur is engaging, uplifting, and inspiring. When we hear someone tell us he or she is following their muse, boldly pursuing a personal dream, we want to root for them. We want to become a part of it.

Elon Musk Blows My Mind

CorporateIntel

Sadly in the march of progress where new machinery does fail, there is no way around that no matter the commitment to extraordinary quality, but the question is, what is the ethos at the core of an enterprise? I don’t know Elon Musk. I wish I did. This guy knows stuff. He’s the real deal. If there is a possible next Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, it could be him. He’s not goofing around with thin stuff that’s going to come and go.

On a Mission or Just Staying Awake

CorporateIntel

Leadership is not so much a word as a behavior, a walking example of what it means to be intertwined with the enterprise. One of the themes I explore in my forthcoming debut novel, This is Rage , is the notion of motivation. This is a subject I hold dear, and one I focus on a great deal in the executive coaching workshop I co-lead with John Vercelli.

The 70% – Part 2

CorporateIntel

So is top management willing to say the whole Circle of Life is out of their hands and the survival of the enterprise is entirely up to market forces, to fate rather than strategy, to a competitor’s campaign rather than a driven response to galvanizing the single most important asset in the company’s inventory, the intellectual capital that is allowed to rest idle and fester?

Too Busy To Save Your Company

Yep, you could have found your way out, met the challenge of Creative Destruction, and banked the opportunity by reallocating resources from historic enterprises to future growth, but you didn’t.

Brands In Memoriam 2012

CorporateIntel

Recent memory had us bid adieu to such iconic enterprises as Palm, Saab, Lehman Brothers, Zenith, Compaq, Borders, Circuit City, Ritz Camera, CompUSA, Mervyn’s, Friendster, Tower Records, Polaroid, and Kodak. Frequent readers of this blog know that I am obsessed with the concept of creative destruction , the intangible but daunting market force where an invention that is vital takes out that which has become defunct, and the nascent replaces the established.

Debate Takeaways Tallied Tactfully

CorporateIntel

Business enterprise and creativity are as fundamental to a shared sense of values as I can imagine, and where we may often disagree on the “how” I hope we don’t much disagree on the “why.” I try hard in this blog to leave out my personal politics, which isn’t all that hard to do since I consider the topic of business innovation and its various threads to be about as nonpartisan a subject as there should be.
