Don´t listen to the HiPPOs!

HiPPO is an acronym for the "highest paid person's opinion" or the "highest paid person in the office." The acronym is used to describe the tendency for lower-paid employees to defer to higher-paid employees when a decision has to be made.

The term can also be used to describe an organization's reliance on human instinct rather than data in the decision-making process.

"When it comes tho the quality of decision-making, pay level is irrelevant and experience is valuable only if it is used to frame a winning argument. In most companies, experience is the winning argument. We call these places "tenurocracies", because porquer derives from tenure, not merit". Extract from "How Google works" by Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenber.

One characteristic critical to world-class teams is “divine discontent.” It is an attitude to learning and growth that is never satisfied with past achievements but always searching for the next challenge. It is remarkable how many sports players and teams are perpetually dissatisfied with their performance. After what seems an outstanding performance they appear ill at ease. Outsiders may even think them churlish.

When the education and entrepreneurship sectors merge and embrace each other. Educators work to foster life-long learners. Entrepreneurs claim to be life-long learners. What if both learned more from each other? What happens when educators approach their tasks with an entrepreneurial perspective, when students tackle their assignments as entrepreneurs solving a problem, and entrepreneurs never stopping learning, teaching, and mentoring others?

What if education and entrepreneurship are now a single, instead of separate sectors?

People deny themselves the possibility of doing something to change. Victims assume that they don’t have any responsibility for a situation that isn’t theirs and therefore there is nothing that they can do to change it or improve it.

The need to connect with our inner humanness, as we explore an uncertain future. Even if we are not sure where our lives are going, as individuals, we need to develop a sense of purpose, or we would simply be lost.

When you consume or work, you make a positive difference --not only in the bottom line, but also in your team, your division, your company and your society.  What you buy and what you do at work are literal representations of what you believe in.

In addition to competitive advantages, there are also competitive collaborations. It’s not only about trying to understand how to be the best by competing with others, but how to grow by collaborating with others.

Single is the new black. Among all connections, “singledom” is also an aspiration. Singularity, dear singularity! We want to be connected, but we also want to be alone. We want to be different and we need our own space.

Systems matter. Nobody is an island. If you touch one strand on a spider’s web, the entire web moves.  A systematic point of view focuses less on individual behavior and more on the interactions they have.

Inclusive thinking means considering other possibilities and points of view before taking action.  Two people can look quite different, but think similarly; and two people can look alike (ethnicity, gender, age, etc.) and think differently.

To go from saying, “I’ve got nothing to hide” to demonstrating that you literally have NOTHING to hide. Don’t just talk the talk, walk the walk. Put your money where your mouth is and provide clear examples of “value” and “culture”, without ambiguities and with real results.

Your history and legacy as a company isn’t just an asset. It might also be a liability. Consumers and employees that are more and more jaded prefer brands without tradition and history because they have nothing to hide. These companies are innocent at birth, and they have been born in a transparent world.

Work in progress. Our natural state. We are not perfect! Sometimes it’s best to launch a product before it’s perfect. Come on!

Even Apple, a company that is known for perfection and control, releases products with known shortfalls.
