Kaffeepause, Gründerszene, lustig, witzig

Auch der fleißigste Entrepreneur muss mal Pause machen, Leute! Hier also wieder mal eine kleine Ablenkung. Fast Company hat einen super spannenden Eintrag mit Zitaten von Captain Kirk & Co gepostet, welche die wesentlichen Regeln des Leaderships verdeutlichen. Have fun!

Übrigens: Wenn ihr auch coole, witzige, interessante oder sonstwie zeigenswerte Slideshows, Bilder oder Videos habt, schickt eine Mail an redaktion@gruenderszene.de und vielleicht schaffen sie es ja in die nächste Kaffeepause. Diesmal den höchsten Dank an Jana Lév. Viel Spaß!

Be a Leader (Sei ein Anführer)

„The man on top walks a lonely street; the ‚chain‘ of command is often a noose. […] One of the advantages of being Captain is being able to ask for advice without necessarily having to take it.“ – Capt. James Tiberius Kirk

Taunt Your Rival (Verhöhne Deinen Rivalen)

„Khan. Khan, you’ve got Genesis. But you don’t have me! You’re going to kill me Khan, you’re going to have to come down here. You’re going to have to come down here.“ – Capt. James Tiberius Kirk

Allow Subordinates to Speak Freely (Erlaube Untergebenen frei zu sprechen)

„If I may be so bold, it was a mistake for you to accept promotion. Commanding a starship is your first, best, destiny. Anything else is a waste of material.“ – Spockzu Captain Kirk

Delegate (Delegiere)

„As captain of this ship, I’m the one who’s responsible for everyone aboard. There aren’t many people I’d willingly turn that responsibility over to. You’re one of ‚em.“ – Capt. Jonathan Archer zu Phlox, dem Schiffsphysiker

Plan Ahead (Plane voraus)

„We must anticipate, and not make the same mistake once.“ – Capt. Jean-Luc Picard

Set Realistic Goals (Setze realistische Ziele)

„Not one hundred percent efficient, of course…but nothing ever is.“ […] „Genius doesn’t work on an assembly line basis. You can’t simply say, ‚Today I will be brilliant.’“ – Capt. James Tiberius Kirk

Meetings (Geschäftstreffen)

„A meeting is an event where minutes are taken and hours wasted.“ – Capt. James Tiberius Kirk

Intuition (Intuition)

„Intuition, however illogical, is recognized as a command prerogative.“ – Capt. James Tiberius Kirk

Creativity (Kreativität)

„Without freedom of choice there is no creativity“ – Capt. James Tiberius Kirk

„Things are only impossible until they’re not.“ – Capt. Jean-Luc Picard
