Why do some start-ups succeed while some don’t? The statistics range a touch, but most agree that half make it and half don’t. With the payoff being so great--flexibility of schedule and unlimited income potential just to name a few--one would think there would be a more surefire formula for success. It is expensive to go to medical school but you know at the end you are in fact going to be a doctor with all the benefits of that hard work. Of course, entrepreneurship does not offer such a guarantee even with it now becoming so popular in many business schools.

You are a CEO or a business unit leader. Ultimately your success depends upon the breadth and depth of leadership you are able to grow amongst your teams. Of course you want to do this. If it’s not innate nature, then by now you have probably been subjected to countless “gurus” who have cajoled and persuaded you and your organization to adopt nurturing your subordinates and transforming your organization.

I've had the privilege over the years to work with amazing people, including our Contagious Optimism team today. As a leader in any organization, there is nothing better than having people around you who understand your vision and then execute it successfully. Some call this effect "synergy" and others call it "harmony." Having the right people around you is tough to find and you should consider yourself fortunate when you experience harmony among your team — like a fine motor that is perfectly calibrated.

What can modern business leaders learn from Einstein’s Annus Mirabilis papers, published in 1905? Plenty! At a minimum, CEOs can develop a way of thinking about an organization’s resources and potential for competitive advantage in the way that Einstein imagined a physical property’s mass and potential energy.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you always had a steady flow of business? A pace that is manageable?  Deadlines which are realistic? Forget it. It is not going to happen. It used to be that I could count on certain seasonal rushes. I knew there would be a mad dash to spend money and finish projects before my client’s year end or other peak times. I could also predict when business would be slow.
