Next Big Idea Club, a book subscription community curated by some of the world’s leading thinkers- Malcolm Gladwell, Daniel Pink, Susan Cain, Adam Grant.
Many interesting nuggets coming out of this conversation with Daniel Pink discussing with one of the authors; a physicist and entrepreneur Safi Bahcall, his new book Loonshots: How to Nurture the Crazy Ideas that Win Wars, Cure Diseases, and Transform Industries at Betaworks Studio.
A read where history, physics and business intersect... appreciate perspectives from a world outside of my own as it resulted in a unique leadership thought. Separate your artists and soldiers. They are two different people. Two opposing mindsets. Two ways of perceiving risks. One is encouraged to try many options, explore and let their imaginations run wild whereas risk for the other is negative as they strive to minimize it. The most crucial part is for leaders to balance the transfer between these two groups. If feedback from the field does not reach artist, the idea and innovation will fail. This and many more insights shared at this inspiring event and read!
