Opportunity Thinking vs Results Thinking
A look at a select few companies and a comparison of Opportunity mindset vs Results driven mindset of leadership teams. Jamie Dimon is a classic example of Results driven mindset. Larry Ellison is a classic example of Opportunity driven mindset. Both leaders have a leading edge of systems thinking. They seek answers to the same questions in very different ways. No one person is 100% of any one mindset but clusters and patterns do exist. We all have dozens if not hundreds of traits and states that prioritize how we solve questions. Each company hires and promotes certain mindset types different than competitors and industry. When companies get this right, they promote and hire mindsets in consistent ways while preserving diversity and complimentary thinking.
