Technology is in service of strategy

Netflix have changed how customers watch movies and TV shows. This technology has taken a different point of view that changed what customers watch, not just how they watch.

The company collected vast amounts of data on the viewing habits of its subscribers. The collected data creates a rich social system that influences what members watch, based on which shows they've liked in the past and what other subscribers see and like.

The Corridor Principle

The corridor principle experiment was conducted in a study done by Robert Ronstadt back in the 1980s. He explained the principle as the mere act of starting a venture in which enables entrepreneurs to see other opportunities they could neither see nor take advantage of until they had started their initial venture.

The difference between those who succeeded in the entrepreneurial field was because they took the chance to launch themselves even without the guarantee of success.

Capable People Unwilling To Lead

Most people would want to grow in an organization, and strong leadership is essential for both professional and personal growth. Yet many capable team workers are reluctant to move towards a leadership role even when they have an opportunity.

The reason is the various perceived risks that make people not take up leadership roles even when they are deserving and capable.

7 key behaviors  for virtual leaders
  • Clarify expectations. Bad assumptions multiply when there is less regular conversation.
  • Don't worry about how the team spends their time and focus on results.
  • Make time to build relationships
  • Grant trust and expect the best.
  • Be patient. Some things will take more time when you aren't in close proximity.
