Paul is joined by returning guest Peter Lowe for the fifth and final instalment in a mini-series based around Peter’s book, ‘The Language of Winning’. This episode looks at the Chapters ‘Managing the Obstacles to Success’ and ‘Move to Improve’.
Peter covers certain areas that he thinks are a consideration when it comes to achieving success including not being afraid of, as well as our attitude to, defeat or failure, managing success, leadership negativity and expectations, changing mindsets. He finishes on looking at consistently challenging yourself and your business to keep innovating and creating higher standards to stay at the top and create higher and higher standards.
The danger, when you’re doing well, is to want to continue to do well and we don’t think of the things we have to do to maintain that success. It’s not just about earning success, it’s about planning for it because if you’re not planning you can bet your bottom dollar your competitors will be.
One of the things that experience tells you is the difference between unplanned events – what I can catastrophes or thunderbolts – or just old-fashioned poor leadership. That creates failure through fear. Allowing self-adulation brought about through over-celebration of success as a team.
The influence of people inside an environment is automatically weakened when they perceive that a leader’s mindset, when failure occurs, is one of looking for blame.
There is only a language of winning when we determine that where we are isn’t good enough anymore. Competitors will catch us up, so we have to have a mindset of evolution. You have to look to up the ante by using your experience, knowledge and information to create higher standards.
‘In failure is your next success, you just need to look for it.’
‘Consistently celebrating a success is a bad thing, move on or it creates an abyss.’
‘Reflection at any time (success or failure) is critical. But reflect with a purpose.’
‘One has to adapt and create change.’
