Driven to succeed
“The happiest and most successful people I know don’t just love what they do, they’re obsessed with solving an important problem, something that matters to them. To do so, it takes inspiration, commitment and perseverance”.
– Shawn Sizer, Chairman and CEO
The concept of critical thinking we adhere to reflects a theory embedded not only in a core body of research over the last 30 to 50 years, but is also derived from roots in ancient Greece.
That history allows us to distinguish two contradictory intellectual tendencies: a tendency on the part of the large majority to uncritically accept whatever was presently believed as more or less “eternal truth” and a conflicting tendency on the part of a small minority — those who thought critically — to systematically question what was commonly accepted and seek, as a result, to establish sounder, more reflective criteria and standards for judging what does and does not make sense to accept as true.
Analyze And Access Everything
To Analyze: Identify its purpose, and question at issue, as well as its information, inferenceses, assumptions, implications, main concepts, and point of view.
To Assess: Check it for clarity, accuracy, precision, relevance, depth, breadth, significance, logic, and fairness.
- Raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely
- Gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively
- Reaches well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards
- Demands open-minded thinking within alternative systems of thought
- Recognizes and assesses, as needs be, assumptions, implications, and practical consequences
- Requires effective communication with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems
Does Longevity Matter Anymore?
Since the 1950s, people have been judging companies based upon their longevity. Wall Street frets over how long these traditional businesses stay on the Fortune 500 list, maintain a leadership position, all the while ignoring the fact that these established and often well-managed companies struggle with disruptive innovation. Why?
Because throughout history and across every sector traditional companies have either failed to embrace disruptive business models, or have failed to maintain their once disruptive edge. As an example, how did the brick and mortar book stores let Amazon get the jump on them? Why didn’t Microsoft see Google coming? It’s simple: these established companies were satisfied with their business models and didn’t even see the innovators coming until it was too late.
Without a disruptive focus companies are merely building or continuing a business model on a “me too” platform of mediocrity. While vision, mission, process, leadership, strategy, branding and a variety of other traditional business practices are important, it is the engineering of these practices to be disruptive that maximizes opportunities.
The most successful companies incorporate disruptive thinking into all of their business and management practices to gain distinctive competitive value propositions. “Me Too” companies fight to eek out market share in an attempt to survive, while disruptive companies become category dominant brands insuring sustainability.
For these reasons and others, we believe that by leading the charge, we will inspire change, innovation, and disruption that allows our business to solve the biggest problems facing the industries we protect, resulting in rapid growth, prosperity, and industry dominance.
So does traditional longevity even matter anymore? Isn’t longevity just a bi-product of something more important?
