Grant’s and Sandberg’s Option B

Wednesday, 07. March 2018

In his latest book, “Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy”, the organizational psychologist Adam Grant discusses the topic resilience. Co-author is no one less than Facebook-COO Sheryl Sandberg, who after her husband’s unexpected death had to deal with the question: What can you do if option A – in this case sharing her life with her husband Dave – is no longer an option? The answer: Make the most of option B! Numerous personal stories in Sandberg’s and Grant’s book illustrate how this can be achieved. Moreover, these stories are underpinned by profound scientific findings.

Inspiring presentations, exciting future prospects and mulled wine for a good cause: It was already the sixth time for the SOLYP team to invite their customers’ SOLYP3 key users to the pre-Christmas-season in Nuremberg to say thank you for working together so well during the past twelve months. Besides fascinating presentations by our customers Giesecke+Devrient and OSRAM, a great deal of news about the latest SOLYP3 developments was awaiting the participants on December 7th and 8th, 2017. Thanks to the new two day event-setup there was enough time to talk to each other about more than the daily business and learn more about SOLYP.

We Wish you a Merry Christmas!

The second part of our blog series presents Adam Grant's amazing insights is about finding ideas: In his book “Originals. How Non-Conformists Move the World” the US-American organizational psychologist asks how those ideas of our time, that are really original and successful, come into being in the first place. Therefore, Grant studies authentic "Originals": People, who don’t fit in and not only have great ideas, but first of all, who are also so bold to make them come true. In short: those who drive creativity and change are the ones, investors and employers should turn to. What habits do those Originals have? It’s actually just three vital points.

The latest trends, liveliest discussions and of course a great deal of networking: The 17th Annual Conference for Strategic Management last week was again the hotspot for strategy experts from the whole of Germany for exchanging best practice approaches to the age of digitalization. “Digital Strategies – from Hype to Reality” was the motto under which Horváth & Partners gathered speakers from renowned companies like ANDREAS STIHL, Daimler, Lieferando and the otto group. In Stuttgart, they revealed interesting insights into their strategies for digitalization. SOLYP has been a cooperation partner for this event for several years. As a pioneer in digitalizing strategic management processes, we took part in the conference with our own stand this time.
