There are Executives and there are Entrepreneurial Executives. An enterprise grows because of the creative spirit of the latter; a spirit that embraces a diverse set of competing values, priorities or perspectives that appear to be in mutual conflict, and ultimately secures favourable outcomes.

ENTREPRENEURIAL SYNERGY: What is needed for a win-win outcome

In this video, Ms. Aarti Maheshwari - Director, Samatvam Academy explains how growing an enterprise consistently calls for the ability to transform the competitive relationship between various variables into one of partnership.

Executives always operate in an organizational setting that is characterized by diverse stakeholders with widely conflicting agendas.

An Entrepreneurial Executive can get work done in such a scenario by adopting a three step framework:

1. Respect: Acknowledge merit in each of the respective values.
a) Inclusion b) Inquiry c) Insight

2. Reconcile: Integrate and harmonize the apparently competing or conflicting values.

3. Realize:Harness the benefits that arise from the complementarity of these values.
a) Resonance b) Resolution c) Innovation

This framework helps Executives to arrive at a harmonious outcome in any situation of divergence. Read the full note.
