#WorkTrends Recap: How To Move Beyond The Competition

We live in a very competitive world with more and more companies cropping up every day. So how do you differentiate your organization, your products and yourself from the competition? This is something every entrepreneur, leader, employee, as well as customer needs to understand. The companies and people who understand that being a solutions provider and problem solver will be what it takes to keep their competitive edge and endure for the long-term.

This week host Meghan M. Biro was joined by Peter Sheahan, CEO and Founder of global consultancy Karrikins Group to discuss how businesses can get ahead of the competition.

Peter talked specifically how embracing change and disruptions can be a driver of success.

Here are a few key points that Peter shared:

  • Companies that embrace change last
  • Creating an environment where employees aren’t scared to fail is necessary if you want your organization evolve
  • You have to build the muscle of risk-taking
