I love reading short inspirational articles during short breaks. Here is one of those articles. It got me thinking and idea of second order consequences stuck with me. I’d love to share it with you now. Powerful But Simple Technique - What is second and third order consequences? In today's society, the notion of delaying gratification is essentially quaint. While instant gratification may make life easier, it doesn't necessarily make life, business, or our well being better. Second and third order consequences always deserve a seat at the table due to this one big reason. https://www.inc.com/julian-hayes-ii/ray-dalios-technique-to-instantly-becoming-a-better-decision-maker-boils-down-to-8-words.html

Lina Linkeviciute on How To Provoke Renaissance In Your Activity ?Theatre Director [email protected] Paintings/Luxury Business Professional2 days ago
If you want to revive, renew and reinvent your activity wouldn’t it be handy to have an INNOVATION MANAGER? Just as even the most expert surgeon can’t operate on himself, you need someone with an outside perspective. A fresh pair of eyes and new brain can work wonders. By giving the doctor your trust and complete information, you’re on the way to being cured. Every case is different, and you need not only deep experience of different kinds of innovation techniques, but also be able to gauge how it will impact your specific organization. What kind of person becomes an INNOVATION MANAGER? Usually they are generalists rather than specialists. These people can fit for so many different positions because they bring a wide-angle lens to a problem that a normal employee would just bring a close up view for. The best example is the main character from a TV series “Pretender”, Jarod who can quickly master complex skill sets to successfully impersonate any profession. It sounds unbelievable but these kinds of people really exist and can create huge benefits for those who are looking for effective innovations. How does an INNOVATION MANAGER Operate? Studies indicate that our ability to think creatively comes one-third from genetics; but two-thirds of the innovation skill set comes through LEARNING and UNDERSTANDING different skills then PRACTICING, EXPERIMENTING and at the end ASSOCIATING them. So, an INNOVATION MANAGER will come to your “home” – company, he is going to to observe everything like an anthropologist or social scientist. He carefully looks for small behavioral details—in the activities of customers, suppliers, and even cleaning ladies of your office—in order to gain insights about new ways of doing things. Then he is going to talk to as many team members as possible, including an engineer, a stay-at-home dad, and a designer to identify what kind of innovation could benefit your business or organization. The most important role of INNOVATION MANAGER is to find THE RIGHT QUESTIONS. Is it a new team? Is it a management technique? Is it a product? Is it service offer? Is it a marketing campaign? Is it a communication campaign? Is it long-term vision? Is it turnover? Is it a leadership skill? Is it the atmosphere? Is it meaning of work? Is it the engineers? Is it the front-line workers? Is it the office? Is it the motivation? Is it the general mood? Is it clients service? Is it proceeding? Is it logistics? What is it? And after: ‘If we did this, what would happen?’” Bringing all the team together, mixing them with new professionals from outside, asking to imagine a completely different alternative can lead to truly original insights. In these ways INNOVATION MANAGER will find the ANSWERS together with the team and will develop the creative spark in everyone. The best historical example is the “Medici effect,” referring to the creative explosion in Florence when the Medici family as “INNOVATION MANAGER” of that time brought together people from a wide range of disciplines—sculptors, scientists, poets, philosophers, painters, and architects. As these individuals connected, new ideas blossomed at the intersections of their respective fields, thereby spawning the Renaissance, one of the most inventive eras in history. If you want a Renaissance in your business – just reserve a call :)

Have a lot of thoughts buzzing in the head, but feel crap at articulating them to your team or others? I feel you. It happens to me. ALL.THE.TIME! 🙄 You feel like you have a lot of ideas and have the reasoning why they are great and that you can take over the world with them. But when they come out of your mouth, what you say doesn’t have the same power when you vocalize them. And unfortunately what sounds great in your head just doesn’t translate to anything valuable, impressive or inspiring to your team. Not all of us are born great orators, but when we have a passion, we can talk hours about it. Meaning, we have a bunch of words and sentences around the topic, but the key is to concentrate the most valuable part of the whole idea into a short pitch. So…what to do? Basically you have to practice explaining things to people. Here’s a few tips I from my experience, that I feel helped me a lot: 1️⃣ TREAT IT LIKE A STORY “It all started, when…” Not everyone operates on the same level of information as you do, so even if it feels stupid and common sense most of the time when working in a team, start with giving a back story to why your topic/suggestion/idea is important. This introduction is a great way for you to keep the flow of your talk, have everyone onboard and not jump into the middle of the story where context might get lost for people that have less information about what you are telling. 2️⃣ HAVE A PLAN Have the end goal in your head, where you want the listeners to be taken to by your story. Even if what you will be telling or discussing goes all different directions, you will have this powerful lighthouse - the main point that you want to conclude to. 3️⃣ BE PREPARED if you have time, let’s say - have a meeting about something - do some research and challenge your idea asking WHY it is important to discuss and HOW it could be perceived different than you think. In that case - you will feel solid if you get these questions, will express your opinion more firmly, taking possible doubts into consideration, and increase the chance that conclusions will be made as you expected. 4️⃣ MAKE IT FLOW Thoughts usually are very chaotic. In our heads, they are random keywords which you roughly know how to combine into this huge concept. Try putting your thoughts into text. When you do this exercise, you will be faced with a challenge of construction - have to write it down so that it has structure, flows nicely and makes sense in general. After doing so, you will have the structure in your head: what is starts from, why it matters, how you propose to approach it and what value will this idea bring to listeners. 🙃 P.S. See what I did here? I think Qoorio insights are a great way to start practising structuring your talks and inspiring your team 😉

Ng Ke Ning on Team build you upForex Trader | Introducer Broker3 months ago
Trading with yourself vs Trading with a community You will eventually realise that trading will become a totally different experience when you have a community, a team, or a group of people supporting you, back you up, and encourage you to do the same things. Movitation is always the key. Having a community is essential when you are down, as they can motivate you from time to time. Therefore, form a team, and have fun!

Gabija Grušaitė on Business/Life/Creativity balanceAuthor of Stasys Šaltoka, Co-Founder of Qoorio & Vieta3 months ago
I graduated from Uni in 2009 in the depth of a recession with no jobs available for fresh graduates. 😳 My options were to stay in London and keep hussling between unpaid internships 🙄 and short term gigs in service industry 🍽️, or move back to Vilnius that had even less jobs available, but at least I could live with my family. 😔 Neither of these options seemed ideal. 20s is a beautiful period in life meant for travelling, making mistakes and learning about yourself and life, so this desolate post-crisis Europe was not the best environment for my personal growth. 🤔 At least, that's what I thought at the time. I was 22 years old with no fear of failure and plenty of naivety and stupidity. Who wasn't, right? 😂😂😂 So I went for The Wild Card - a completely crazy option that was outside of "usual" paths. I went to South East Asia, found few freelancing jobs, eventually settled in Penang and had this amazing opportunity to co-found independent art center called Hin bus Depot. ❤️ I had nothing to lose, only gain, while going for "conservative" options would seem safe at the first glance, but in reality there was no gains for me. 🌎🧭 It's counter intuitive, but safe options often lead nowhere. 💚 It turned out really well for me. Plenty of new challenges, new friends, new skills and much deeper grasp of how different and how universal at the same time people are. ❤️ I would not be who I am without these 7 years in Malaysia and I am still in love with Penang. 🇲🇾 My insight is that you always have more than two options. In fact, there are unlimited options once you start thinking outside the box. We often tend to trap ourselves with thinking that "if not this, then this". 🚀🚀🚀 I'm not advocating crazy risks, but rather to open mind for unusual paths that your intuition tells you to follow. 🧳

Thanks for sharing Gabija. I recognize this path of life. My path lead to Brazil, it was also completely off the path. Nobody can take away those experiences of life and in the long run they pay off somehow. (And now I start to understand as well by the way why Quoorio starts to grow in Malaysia too 😉👌🆒)

What makes a great product manager? Google suggests dozens of articles with a variety of characteristics and skills highlighted.

I would like to share a Mind Map with 8 Creative Personalities. 1. Dreamer 2. Producer 3. Innovator 4. Artist 5. Adventurer 6. Thinker 7. Maker 8. Visionary The Mind Map drawn by hand with colors helps us to expand the whole picture, to see it clearly on the paper ant to make our brain function better. This process creates a space for NEW IDEAS TO COME!!!! I refused to draw since I was 6 years old and never ever wanted to start again. Once I have learned and experienced that combining DRAWING with WRITING makes our brain like a TURBO MACHINE!! No matter how you draw, your brain appreciates it a lot!!! I can explain ALL during MIND MAP session! P.S. Mind Map inspired by the Adobe Test of CREATIVE TYPES https://mycreativetype.com/

It's an interesting read on HBR magazine about how Cobra's chairman CHRISTOFFER RUDQUIST turned an Indian beer into a global brand, which is currently exported to nearly every EU country, Japan, Canada and Australia. The company survived a couple of crises and Mr. Rudquist shared his learnings what made them successfully expand to international markets: - Vision which was never wavered - create the finest Indian beer sold everywhere. - Creative flexibility - always willing to learn, adapt, grow and innovate. - Integrity. "It's better to fail doing the right thing than to succeed doing the wrong one". What are your favorite examples of local brands which successfully expanded in international markets?

As a writer, I am often asked for book recommendations. Reading a book is a big commitment and before investing time, we would like to know if this is going to be relevant. To help you out, I will start a series of reading recommendations based not on the plot of the story or unique artistic features of the book, but on the individual situation of the potential reader. Expect fiction recommendations that help to deal with anxiety; wild books for wild times; stories that help to overcome fears.

Fungi is the original network of planet earth way more complex than what humans ever created. It transmits food both and information between different species of plant/fungi/animal kingdom. Main question should be: why are we not connected to this network? "Animals tend to find food in the world and put it in their bodies; fungi put their bodies in the food. To do so, they must ceaselessly remodel themselves, weaving their bodies into relation with their surroundings. This entanglement—with themselves, with their physical surroundings, and with other organisms—is their staple mode of existence. "

This is a book written more than thousand years ago by a young woman in Kyoto ❤️ "Pillow Book" by Sei Shonagon reaches us from the depth of long forgotten era, but it's not a grand epic story, but rather funny notes and anecdotes a witty charming lady wrote for her own amusesment. But it's also a very humbling to realise how universal human experience is. In imperial Court of Kyoto same as contemporary New York, Kuala Lumpur or Vilnius people laugh, tease each other, hide lovers and watch the beauty of nature to unfold. Highly recommend reading it while watching the spring blossom and slowly mature into summer 🌸🌸🌸

Wild times call for wild books. Since Mr. President has a certain obsession with post office, I thought, it might be a good time to read “Post office” by Bukowski. If the rent is due and you have no idea what to do, this is The Book 📖 It explores the depth of desperation and provides a glimpse of hope that people are able to withstand just about anything. Even a dull and mind-numbing shifts in post office. And still manage to become the world famous writer. Hate your job? 🙄 Bukowski did hate his for sure! But in the end, it was worth it as he succeeded in writing an awesome ode to all the most horrible jobs in the planet. Enjoy with nice stiff drink and let me know what you think 🍺🍷 Please comment 👇👇👇to let me know what kind of books you are looking for or request a Talk in my profile 👌

For those who want to travel to Japan or miss the land of the rising sun badly, here is a beautiful short novel one could read in few hours 📙❤️ 💎 "Before the Coffee gets cold" is a book even my husband thoroughly enjoyed and he doesn't enjoy fiction so often 😂🙄. It's a gem of a story that will blow some fresh Tokyo breeze your way. 🌎 The story is very simple and unique at the same time - if you could go back in time just for a short while who would you want to see? What would you say before the coffee gets cold? ☕ Even though the story explores the past, Toshikazu Kawaguchi inspires his audience to appreciate the present. 💚

What is our motivation to read? Expectations are to expand our minds, to get insights into life and perform better on daily basis. Intuitively many people tend to favour non-fiction, because it talks about 'real' world rather than fantasy, but, to be honest, it is not true. Non-fiction gives you somebody's opinion on a certain question, while a right choice of a novel might open up your internal wisdom, help you process important questions of life and death, loss and opportunity. Reading is way more than a way to acquire information, it is a meditate inward process. But... It is very hard to make a decision on what to read and why. Many lists tell you a bit about the book but not "the value proposition" on what you could discover by reading it. That's my goal 💅

Government institutions are rarely mentioned among best practice examples of successful transformations. But this one beats them all! In the early 90’s New York was known as a dangerous city full of drug traffickers, murderers and various crimes. The police staff were underpaid and overall staff engagement was low. The story’s hero William Bratton was appointed as a police commissioner in 1994 and in less than two years he turned the city into one of the safest big cities in USA! What did Mr. Bratton do to achieve such results? 📌Let leaders face operational challenges by themselves instead on solely showing the numbers. In LEAN we would call it go to gemba. 📌Limited resources to achieve ambitious plans is a well known reality. Instead of staying in a "Pity island", Bratton reallocated his resources in a smarter way. Instead of equal distribution, he placed the officers in places with the most impact. 📌In order to touch PEOPLE with a new transformation strategy, Bratton identified kingpins and put them on a spot light during bi-weekly meetings. 📌Politics! They happen everywhere and you cannot avoid it, but you can learn how to manage it. Early on identify your supporters and "devils" and prepare well articulated arguments. https://hbr.org/2003/04/tipping-point-leadership

Over the last few weeks I was deeply involved into a business performance management topic. This made me realize how much myself and maybe some of you, apply the same principles in our personal lives. Measuring our happiness with success KPI’s from professional life feels to me a bit outdated. 👉 check out my blog post with my thoughts on this topic. I am very interested in your thoughts! https://nainyte.com/2020/personal-development/are-there-kpis-for-happiness/

Sesame Street is a great example of a company which combines business with a meaningful purpose and continuously adapts to changes in the market. Although Sesame Street is a media company, they also have a meaningful educational mission: “help kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder”. This resulted in Sesame Street introducing new characters, such as Julia who has autism or Zari the first female Afghan Muppet. It is amazing to see how the company is providing meaningful messages through fun programs. My old time favorite character from Sesame Street is ELMO! I bring him along to business meetings to teach discipline. 👉 Check out my blog post to understand his role. https://nainyte.com/2019/lean/you-should-adopt-my-best-friend-elmo/
