Three inspiring TED Talks for entrepreneurs

How do you measure your team’s results?

The Power of Silence, Carol Dweck

In the face of failure, there are two ways, one to give up and the other, learn from our mistakes, improve on them and move on. In most cases, we sink with the slightest, without being aware that we often have to make mistakes and lose in order to come forward stronger and optimally, he assures in his presentation Carol DweckProfessor of Psychology at Stanford.

“I heard about a school in Chicago where you have to pass a certain number of courses to graduate and if you fail you get a grade not yet‘ begins Dweck.

What is directing?

The Magic Moment, Itay Talgam

Itay TalgmanBusiness consultant, argues that leading is like conducting an orchestra, and that stepping onto the podium is a “magical moment” but it comes with great responsibility, so you have to know what you’re doing and what you’re not doing to leave the team.

“The magic moment of directing is when you go on stage; There is a seated orchestra. They all warm up and do their thing. And I stand on the podium. You know, the principal’s little office. Or rather a cabin, an open cabin, with lots of space. And in front of all the noise you make a very small gesture, not very sophisticated. And suddenly, in the midst of chaos, order. Noise becomes music,” he says.

How do you solve problems with few resources?

“The Impromptu Solution”, Navi Radjou

“An intelligent solution is born out of adversity. A smart solution is neither sophisticated nor perfect, but it is able to create more value at less cost. To me, entrepreneurs who create such solutions are like alchemists: they can magically turn adversity into opportunity, turning something of lesser value into something of great value. In other words, they have mastered the art of doing more with less, which is the essence of frugal innovation,” affirms the innovation expert Navi Radjou.

The frugal innovation that Radjou defends is the ability to create more economic and social value with fewer resources, it’s not just about doing something; but to make things better.
