I strongly encourage people to disagree with me. I like to create a culture of constructive debate & skepticism within all of my organizations.
California (PRWEB) October 23, 2009
Popular document sharing website Scribd featured two interviews by Mouli Cohen during the past week. "Mouli Cohen and the Art of Tough Decisions" was made a featured document in the Business & Law category and in the Finance category, while "Mouli Cohen Talks Startups" was featured in Business & Law.
These two documents come just after he released his most popular document "10 Moments that Flattened the World,". The site is recognizing Mr. Cohen for his business acumen and willingness to share with others what he has learned through years of successful entrepreneurship and philanthropy.
In "Mouli Cohen and the Art of Tough Decisions," Cohen says, "I strongly encourage people to disagree with me. I like to create a culture of constructive debate & skepticism within all of my organizations." In the same interview, Cohen speaks about balancing short term and long term decision making. "Whenever possible, manage for the quarter century, not the quarter," he says. He cites Ken Gillette's 1903 decision to focus on disposable razors and Andy Grove's 1985 decision to fire himself from Intel as quality "quarter century decisions."
In "Mouli Cohen Talks Startup Success," the founder of Voltage Capital emphasizes the importance of commitment to your enterprise. "You must live the goals and dreams of the company everyday," Cohen says. "Whether speaking to employees, investors, customers or press, if the one who created the dream isn't the champion, he or she has little right to ask anyone else to believe in it." Cohen goes on to speak about recognizing failure and capitalizing on it. "As soon as you've determined that an idea is not going to work, stop spending on it. Admitting the weakness or failure of a project does not mean it has to be seen as a setback, rather it is often the clearest and fastest path to discovering alternative solutions and successful innovations."
Mouli Cohen will be releasing more interviews to the public in the coming weeks, all of which will be made available at his page on Scribd.
