Not sure how to adapt to the new normal for businesses post-pandemic?

 

It might be time to shift to a Moonshot Thinking Mindset in order to accelerate revenue growth and reach your full potential.

 

What exactly is Moonshot Thinking?

Having this mindset involves proposing a radical solution to a huge problem while leveraging disruptive technology. It means moving beyond the idea of 10% growth, and instead, driving 10X exponential growth. Moonshot Thinking also encourages us to systemize innovation and embrace failure in order to learn and make progress.

Is your social media also flooded with memes of the iconic green tracksuits, as Squid Game rides its wave of popularity worldwide? Well then, we are on the same page.

 

Squid Game took Netflix by storm, ranking number 1 in 90 countries where Netflix operates. So, how did K-Dramas manage to achieve ground breaking sensation in international markets? AND what can we take away for applying to our own organizations? The simple answer is: Moonshot Thinking.

This led him to  achieve unprecedented success. Here are some of the Moonshot Mindsets that you can adopt too in order to accelerate your business’ revenue growth:

SHOOT YOUR SHOT: MAKING COVID-19 YOUR LAUNCHPAD FOR MOONSHOTS

67%

of executives believe that COVID-19 provides opportunities for growth

BUT, only

30%

of executives feel confident enough to face the changes

This presents a big gap between those who can see this opportunity and those who will actually seize it. It has been almost 2 years since the onset of this all-consuming global pandemic and businesses are still building themselves back up as new laws and regulations as well as new customer behaviours keep disrupting the foundations of what they have built. 

 

It is time to change the narrative. Viewing COVID-19 not just as a crisis but as an opportunity to grow and innovate is essential for your business to emerge a winner in this digital age. The 2008 financial crisis demonstrated that innovators during this crisis actually outperformed their competitors by 10% during the crisis and by almost 30% post-crisis. 

 

Being courageous enough to pursue your ideas and passions and making a positive change might be your ticket to success. Fall in love with the problem and its uncertainties instead of fearing it.

CREATING A SUCCESSFUL CULTURAL TRANSFORMATION JOURNEY

Don’t know how to incorporate these Moonshot Mindsets in your organization?

 

What your organization might need first is a cultural transformation.

 

As Albert Einstein once said, “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is insanity.” A paradigm shift in the mindset of the organization and its values, expectations and practices is required for positive revenue growth.

 

For instance, Microsoft’s cultural shift from a competitive and fixed mindset environment to a climate of learning was a key driver for the boost in its valuation from $350 billion in 2015 to $2 trillion today, making it one of the Best Places to Work at. These 5 steps can help to transform your organizational culture and leadership:
