THE GOLD MINE EFFECT

Presentation formats:

– 25-90 min presentation

– 2-3 hours workshop

TOPIC : HUNGER IN PARADISE

While organizations talk a lot about how to achieve success, they talk way too little about the consequences of success. About the complacency, arrogance and resistance to change, which often follow as a shadow of success. Success often produces complacency. It happens to individuals, companies and nations.

For the past five years, Rasmus Ankersen has studied how successful companies can stay successful, and in this speech he will share his answers to questions like: How do you stay humble when the company cashes in record profits? How do you provide people with the feeling that they are standing on a burning platform when there are no flames in sight? Or put it in another way: How do you create hunger in paradise?

HOW TO SAVE SUCCESS FROM FAILURE

While organizations talk a lot about how to achieve success, they talk way too little about the consequences of success. About the complacency, arrogance and resistance to change, which often follow as a shadow of success. In his new book “Hunger in Paradise” Rasmus describes how successful companies can stay successful and eliminate complacency.

From a competition perspective, the iPhone is nothing but a niche product” The famous words belong to Nokia’s CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, barely a year after the iPhone’s release. His answer came to stand as a monument to the arrogance that sent Nokia into a free fall: in six years Nokia’s smartphone market share dropped from 50% to 3%. The same people who made Nokia so successful also turned it into a gigantic failure.

In his new book “Hunger in Paradise” Rasmus Ankersen explains why succes produces complacency and he gives us the recipe for how to deal with it. Based on impressive and authentic case stories about LEGO, Coca Cola, Blockbuster, SAP, Restaurant NOMA and Nokia, he presents five lessons on how to to stay hungry in paradise and avoid becoming another victim of complacency.

For six intense months Rasmus Ankersen traveled the world and literally trained and lived with the world’s best athletes and their coaches to answer questions like: How did one athletic club Jamaica, succeed to produce most of the world’s best sprinters?
