- Survival is not a negative. Survival is a desired state for the workplace, driving everyone to their peak performance.
- Survival should be part of the work culture since survival is an intense competition where everybody wins, and no one loses.
- Survival equals peak performance – peak performance of all faculties – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – all are at the top of their game and consolidated on one single purpose.
- Survival is extremely efficient. The ‘secret sauce’ of survival is the realization that competition is a waste of energy and inefficient, hence a poor survival strategy. A better, more efficient strategy is investing the energy in innovation, creating a Niche Monopoly™.
- Niche Monopoly™ is nature’s secret weapon in generating greater yields with less effort. In niche monopolies you have no competition; no energy is wasted. The free energy can be invested in rewarding the team, giving back to society and investing in further innovation to maintain the edge of the Niche Monopoly™.
