“I love forums because it’s one place where I have permission to fail.”
What is a Forum?
An entrepreneur is believed to live a lonely life at the top. There is hardly anybody to guide him or take him through the sea of difficulties he faces on a daily basis. Hence forums are essential for entrepreneurs to find like-minded people who may be going through the same struggles as them. Forums like YPO, and EO guide entrepreneurs by having open and honest discussions. Anish shares how forums are built and if they can be applied to workplace and family situations. According to Anish, forums solve problems by having vulnerable discussions with fellow members, hence he applies the same strategy to his leadership and family life as well to have better relationships with people around him.
The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team
Anish has formed his leadership style inspired by the book written by Patrick Lencioni, “The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team”. He lists out the 5 dysfunctions for us: the absence of trust that leads to a fear of conflict in the team, which results in a lack of commitment and hence avoidance of accountability, finally leading to inattention to the results. Anish talks about building stronger relationships that are also accountable.
