C-Suite leaders today are looking for new ways to bring the spirit of entrepreneurship into their businesses. We’ve learned that playing by the same old rules isn’t going to lead to revolutionary disruption and long-term success. Having the courage to take risks, fail and start again is what allows entrepreneurs to fulfill their dreams, and that same perspective can help all business leaders get ahead of trends, discover challenges early on and clearly define the opportunities that lie ahead. What used to be safe is now risky, and establishing a culture that supports entrepreneurship will ensure the entire organization is prepared for the exciting changes and breakthroughs that are happening in the blink of an eye. Our guest this week is Randy Gage, a Hall of Fame speaker and author whose life has been full of risk-taking as a means of survival. A high school dropout and former dish washer, Randy became a self-made millionaire by honing his critical thinking skills and setting clearly defined goals for himself. “Quiet confidence and loud ideas are sexy,” Randy says, and revolutionary ideas can come to fruition when conventional thinking is thrown out and new perspectives can take their place. The C-Suite Network will welcome Randy on stage at the C-Suite Network Conference Nov. 16-18 in Marina del Rey, California, to shake up the room with his bold perspective on risk taking in the modern age. It’s time to stop playing it safe and learn the new rules for taking risks, thinking differently and working like an entrepreneur to create real change and solutions to the unique challenges our modern world is facing. We must be prepared for the day when artificial intelligence surpasses all human knowledge. Identifying hard, soft, linear and cyclical trends, coupled with critical thinking, will help us stay ahead of the curve and lead our companies toward world-changing breakthroughs and lasting success.
