Bullet chess mentality
Classical chess can take hours to play. Players carefully think through multiple scenarios for every move. One mistake is catastrophic.
In Bullet chess, players have less than three minutes to make all their moves. The question isn’t whether players will make mistakes. All players, even world champions, make multiple mistakes. The question is, who will adapt fastest.
In our work, problems happen when we play Bullet chess with a Classical chess mentality. We try to do our work quickly but are reluctant to make mistakes. As a result, our work suffers because we don’t get the advantages of speed.
Leaders often say be agile, innovative, and take risks. But they rarely give teams permission to make mistakes.
How might you give your team permission to go fast and furious?
Thanks for caring!
