Warring Dragons

September 15, 2014 Chris Pearse

Have you noticed how often the dragons of Dragons’ Den disagree over what is and what isn’t a viable business proposition? Sometimes to the point of aggressive and entertaining argument.

This leads me to the unequivocal conclusion that those esteemed business gurus must be wrong – and completely wrong – at least some of the time. After all if two people disagree they can’t both be right.

Now there are two ways forward from this notion:

1. If the dragons can’t be right all the time, what chance do we mere mortals have of being right at all?

2. The dragons are mere mortals too – and we are as well equipped to make decisions as they are.

Which of these beliefs define your behaviour?
