My main lesson is that everything happens for a reason, and as long as you work your hardest and have the best intentions (and rarely is this driven by making the most money) the results will follow. It’s never an easy road, and it’ll be full of trials and tribulations, but the satisfaction of bringing your vision to reality is priceless, so enjoy the ride!

3 entrepreneurs share their biggest mistakes – and what they learned from them

When you hear the stories behind some of today’s most successful companies, it can be easy to forget just how hard it is to set up and scale a business

While the firm may lose some value appropriation, and pass on a bigger slice of the value pie to the achieving executive, the extra value gained through successful exploration and the development of new business and knowledge increases the size of the pie overall, and places the organisation in a better position for future growth. Indeed when an organisation gives some of its “ownership” of relationships to individual employees, it can actually benefit.

Rethinking network ties

Professional service executives who base their professional relationships on individual ties bring more value to the firm

In an atmosphere of maximally reinforced reassurance, you have the best chance of banishing the rose-coloured glasses.

The fine line between optimism and fakery

Are humans unrealistically hopeful about the future, or just pretending to be?

A “glass ceiling” is really a set of stereotypes that are in contradiction with one another. That is, the stereotype of the profession “computer scientist” is at odds with the stereotype of the gender “woman” and so some people may vacillate between thinking that women aren’t tough enough to make it as computer scientists . . . and thinking that tough female computer scientists aren’t feminine enough to be acceptable women. We all use stereotypes to make processing the world easier – rather than seeing things anew, we can just group what we see into types that we already have.
