Applying Exponential Thinking to Organizations with Salim Ismail

Today’s business climate has been marked by the rise of organizations built on the principles of exponential thinking—think Github, Airbnb, and Uber. Companies stuck in old linear thinking patterns, like Kodak, have gone out of business. We can no longer rely on repetitiveness and old ideas to get us through—to achieve success in such a competitive climate, we need to be thinking bigger, and constantly changing and developing. 

In this episode, we welcome back special guest Salim Ismail! If you haven’t already listened to my first conversation with Salim, I recommend you listen to episode #89. 

Imagine if you could improve the performance of your organization by 10x — what would it look like? How can we raise the collective intelligence and wisdom of our organizational teams? Today’s guest Salim Ismail is here to tell us how to transform the way your company does business. As the founder of Singularity University, a board member at XPRIZE, and an internationally bestselling author, Salim has built his career on thinking big and teaching others about industry disruption and exponential thinking. 

We cover a lot of ground in this short conversation. We review what makes an exponential organization, explain why new ideas tend to be rejected by legacy organizations and why this is causing stress around the world. We’ll go over some examples of businesses failing due to their inability to take on exponential thinking, and explain why this happens. We’ll talk about how to successfully transform organizations and solve problems. Lastly, we’ll talk about creativity and share a great hack to completely change the way you thinking about saying ‘no’ to ideas.
