Adapting means change; and change, more often than not, means risk, one that great leaders are willing to take.
The world is changing fast. In order for any business to keep up and keep alive, its leaders need to constantly try new things and take risks. It’s a Darwinistic jungle out there and only those who adapt well will survive. Adapting means change; and change, more often than not, means risk, one that great leaders are willing to take.
Risk-takers pave opportunities for themselves.
Good leaders are generally risk-takers as they always try to find opportunities for themselves and their team to grow. And opportunities don’t always come knocking at one’s door. The best ones are sometimes found after opening the door yourself and stepping out into unknown grounds.
Risk-takers are not afraid of failures.
In their constant search for growth, risk-takers don’t have the time to be afraid. They know that growth is found in a place outside their comfort zones. Taking risks doesn’t always pay off well, but better to face the consequences (and learnings) of trying, than wonder about what could have been in the future.
Kongan’s CEO, Nikko Baluyot, has proven it true that taking risks is definitely worth it. At a young age, he has ventured into various industries, including Information Technology, Workspace Solutions, Consulting, Construction, Online Media, Advertising, Restaurant, Healthcare, and Security.
These fields began as unfamiliar grounds for the young CEO. But he took the risk of venturing into the unknown and is now flourishing in its success.
