So you say, "Murph, I'm not at Sage Summit"; well, "why not?" With sessions like this pick of mine, you certainly should be!
Are you looking for ways to break business rules? Sage Summit is handing out sledge hammers!
Are you a follower or a leader? Your rule adherence equation can answer that question. I wonder if you even knew there was such a thing as a 'rule adherence equation?'
It turns out that successful business leaders can’t follow all the rules all the time. In fact many successful business breakthroughs are brought about via not just departure from, but flat out breaking, traditional business rules.
Today most successful entrepreneurs pave their own path to success, despite all odds, and frequently that requires following a non-traditional path. I mean where would cell phones be if Alex Bell had simply said "I’m going to build a better telegraph," rather than invent the telephone. We would all still be going down to the telegraph office at the train station to wire money rather than logging into our bank on our smart phones and transferring funds. Thank goodness for 'rule breakers.'
Highly successful people have usually had to do two things in order to earn their successful status. First, they had to learn and understand the rules applicable to their business environment, in order for them to, secondly, to know which rules to break to be able to get ahead. And that is where the keep-it or break-it rules paradox lies, for you must be able to do both if you are going to be successful.
While rules are intended to bring about order and necessitate conformity in order to preclude chaos, breaking the right rules is the methodology for innovation, creation, and trend setting. The successful person knows which rules they can, and should, break and which rules they definitely should not break.
In the Sage Summit session titled "How to be a business rule breaker" attendees will hear from Christina Daves, Tereson Dupuy, Barry Moltz, and Andrew Schuman, all executives who don’t fear the unknown, as they expound upon their own experiences and share why breaking the rules is sometimes exactly the right thing to do.
I've been breaking rules all my life, an usually got a spanking for it, and now we find out that it's a creative way to 'get ahead' in business....imagine that.
New entrepreneurs looking for a competitive advantage, as well as seasoned business owners looking to think outside of the box and build a culture of risk taking within their organization should find this session beneficial in navigating a new uncharted course.
Come enjoy this session with me, it should be 'shattering'.
