LEAD from REALITY-PARTNERING: Entrepreneurial Genius from a Higher Power

–Savanting Study 11: Andrew – Lead from Reality-Partnering

VI    JOB DESIGN for ENTREPRENEURIAL GENIUS

Your true decision    You can see how a higher power can catalyze your brilliance as a successful entrepreneur and CEO, Andrew.  Therefore, here’s your true decision.  Now that you know that running this company is possible for you, can you really go back to the mundane routine of your bank job?  Here are some comments from others about such a decision:

  • Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, talks about his similar decision: “I knew that if I failed, I wouldn’t regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying.” He also said: “It’s not what you do and mess up, it’s what you don’t do that will plague you when you are old and looking back on your life.”
  • Seth Godin is an entrepreneur, best-selling author, and global thought leader for innovative business ideas and marketing strategies. He echoes Bezos’ sentiment: “The only thing worse than starting something and failing… is not starting something.”
  • Mark Twain also reinforces Bezos: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.

ANDREW (laughing):  Okay, okay, okay, Lauren.  You can stop now.  You’ve convinced me.  I’m going to take over Dad’s company. 

LAUREN:  How to design your ideal entrepreneurial company: Excellent decision, Andrew.  Let’s start customizing your CEO job and, indeed, the whole company to augment your access to entrepreneurial genius from a higher power.  We’ll need to incorporate the tasks which will trigger top-talent flow and keep you experiencing the magic of “automatic entrepreneuring.”  The themes of past peak events and pursuits will help us to identify these trigger events.  Work will become play if I can get it right.

What’s the creativity domain in which you are your most creative?  Can’t wait to find out since you fear you’re not creative, Andrew.  We’ll want to look at your growth paths as well.  I find it so gratifying when the ideal growth paths for the company align with your natural growth paths . . . . .

Lauren Holmes is a cutting-edge career maximization strategist specializing in accelerated growth to sustainable self-actualization. Her work is driven by an obsession for pushing the envelope on human potential and accessing the consciousness and capabilities of the future human now. As CEO of an executive search firm specializing in corporate change leaders, Lauren interviewed the best in the C-suites and boardrooms of some of the most successful global companies. Her breakthrough maximization theories resulted from viewing these interviews through the lens of her degree in evolutionary and biological anthropology. Lauren then tested these theories through action-learning experimentation with clients during her two decades as CEO of Frontiering, her career acceleration firm. The Savanting Study series which Lauren is now writing is an extension of studies in her 2019 book, Savanting: Outperforming your Potential. The first six studies arose from her comparative analysis of Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Oprah Winfrey, and Jim Carrey. Savanting reveals the commonalities behind their success which prove Lauren’s unique paradigm for true human potential. Each Savanting Study provides actionable instructions for how to resolve common career and work challenges in a way which simultaneously springboards one to self-actualization and the emotional, material, and meaningful rewards of career maximization.
