Should an entrepreneur get a setback to improve as a leader? What is the nature of setback which can
After a long time, I have been writing on a very interesting subject and i.e. An entrepreneur should get a setback to improve as a leader!
Getting Setback may sound deliberate and weird but it is not! The another word for the same will be Failure...but the severity is more in the word "Setback".
Almost many legendary people went through a turbulent time while developing themselves as an entrepreneur! And then by experience they confirmed the fact that there is a sense in acquiring leadership skills but one has to be a learner by divulging the fact that every person has a greater sense of being what he or she wants to become! However many times circumstances make him or her lose out with the confidence but there is a potential strength of leadership when any person comes across such personality and tries to help him or her out to stand out differently with fully equipped potentials required in the outside world.
The above para explains about the factual scenario to enhance greater understanding of being a leader and being in the leadership with full preparation. Here SETBACK , this word should pop up and enumerate such realistic aspects which will throw a light diligently on certain important things supporting ideal leadership. SETBACK is nothing but through some hardship one can set the goals/aims in such a manner where all circumstances back him or her diligently because of his or her empathetic approach he or she develops through difficult time! SETBACK activates a learner in you!
Nature of SETBACK can be-
1. Some critical problem cropping up in entrepreneur's profession where there is an impact from the market 2. Some difficulty in handling people properly 3. Some problem in having empathetic approach in case of internal people who support an entrepreneur or even his or her customers and such allied people who support his or her business directly or indirectly 4. Some barriers about his or her self developed approach 5. Some loophole being kept in implementation of things for the betterment and in sync with thought process continuously 6. Next level of growth 7. Managing triggers on a daily basis 8. Global vision to work on multiple levels 9. Creating unnecessary conflicts on a constant basis 10. Treatment given at every moment for every situation in a wrong manner where it creates further problems for the whole organization
The above all aspects and such similar ones make entrepreneurs think about themselves and their surroundings a lot!
Steve Jobs was thrown out of his own company.... Recently Narayanmurthy, the Chairman of Infosys and his ability to make a recovery out of difficult time which the company was going through due to some problem caused by few executive members.... Prime Minister Hon. Narendra Modiji and his conviction to sustain in turbulence for the welfare of the country.... From mythological stories ....Lord Rama went through a critical time when he was banished from his own kingdom.... Lord Arjuna's own perception like stigma about his own understanding of Karma or duty Jesus , the kind of determined approach he had for the humanity although he was going through lot of sufferings
All the above examples depict quality of becoming a great leader after having SETBACK!
SETBACK is inevitable sometimes because it gives a unique perspective or moulds that gradually when people take in stride the SETBACK with correct vision.
Maturity has one different angle and i.e. how flexible you are to accept others' opinion about you as a leader although you are an experienced entrepreneur, manager, achiever etc. However this does not get seen in many entrepreneurs. The person who says that I am excellent at marketing and bringing lot of revenue in last many years since the time I am into my business can not be called as a great leader. Entrepreneur and Leader both the words have some accomplished feeling within itself but it has to be cognized and worked upon very subtly because otherwise the efforts are futile/fragile!
SETBACK for someone is not a sin but it is a boon when we talk about entrepreneurship and leadership both at the same time.
So are you ready for experiencing setback? Did you realize why setback is important and how does it work?
All the best wishes and be great...be kind! WE ALL ARE LEADERS BUT WE WANT EVERYONE TO TAKE IN THEIR STRIDE THAT EVERYONE IS AN ENTREPRENEUR.
With Best Regards in SETBACK,
