The Reign of Unreasonable People



SIOP Blogger Discusses the Characteristics That Make Entrepreneurs Successful and Why Business Leaders Should Care

As Arthur Schopenhaur once noted, “talent hits a target no one else can hit, genius hits a target no one else can see.”

In her most recent post on the SIOP Exchange, SIOP blogger Maria Collar discusses the power and unique skills the “unreasonable” entrepreneurs bring to the table.

“In a world characterized by fluidic changes and intense transformation, unreasonable innovators are exactly needed to propel the creation of multidimensional value,” she explains in her post. “According to George Bernard Shaw, as quoted in The Power of Unreasonable People: How Social Entrepreneurs Create Markets That Change the World, entrepreneurs are unreasonable innovators in that ‘the reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”’

Maria goes on to detail specifics ways in which the “unreasonable” differ from others and explain how she believes business leaders can use these traits to spur growth and innovation in their own organizations.

“As the business landscape becomes more uncertain, leaders must unreasonably insist on changing the order of things and developing new mechanisms for business to thrive,” she adds.
