How to master the art of winning
Subrotah Biswas | October 29, 2008
Through all those case studies and internships we are taught how to prepare for varied business eventualities. However, in the real world, each situation is unique; every problem/challenge requires a renewed approach.
Let me draw an analogy with my favourite sport soccer. At B-school one gets good coaching - one gets to learn about how to kick the ball, control the ball, field movements and so on.
To all those stepping out into their careers post their MBAs, I would strongly advise that they look for linear organic growth at the beginning of the career. Exponential growth, especially in the initial days, results in dilution of certain fundamental strengths. I am reminded of the story of a butterfly coming out of the cocoon.
Additionally, I think, every individual should contribute towards a "learning organisation" - this is a term coined by Peter Senge; and implies that everyone in the organisation has the power to contribute positively and should aim at achieving an overall synergy through harmonic coordination of work profiles.
