Have you ever heard the saying: “Everything old is new again”? Or perhaps, “History repeats”?
Students of history would be familiar with the concept. What we are experiencing today is rarely novel. Political maneuvering, money market bubbles, booms and busts, technological advances and the massive changes they make in society. They’ve all happened before in one way or another. But the lessons are often unheeded, and the results are wasted time, effort and money.
The Battle of Business is a workshop or presentation that compares conflict and commerce and the lessons from the former that can help inform the latter.
In commerce the ultimate aim is the transaction between parties where each party seeks to gain a benefit over the other. In conflict the ultimate aim is the battle between parties where each party seeks to gain a benefit over the other.
Where a business organisation maneuvers itself in the marketplace, a fighting unit maneuvers itself on the battlefield. And where a military commander commands troops in battle, a business leader manages workers who are conducting the trading.
If you think your organisation could benefit from a speaker who can bring to life the time and context of history and find parallels in your organisation’s work with the catastrophes of conflict, the please contact Conway at IPAS.
