#10 C-Suitism is "Extreme-Featism or "Feat-Extremism "


Extreme-Featism or Feat Extremism - is our 10th C-Suitism. 
This is an absolutely New ism. I found the pictures with caption on the web and it made me think about 'Feat-Extremism'. This is commonly found in the C Suite especially with those who have undergone "BHAG" - the Big Hairy Audacious Goals to push their organisations to a. Scale up fast with b. Push sales numbers high c. Cut the costs big time etc. etc. and d. Improve profits in a quick time frame. There are many many more of this kind for e.g. " Stretch-Goals". 
 The Full Circle denotes 100% the Half Circle 50% and the triangle is the Pyramid. They denote Monopoly or 100% Achievement. The Half Circle in marketing terms a Command over the market with 50% market share and the Pyramid denoting being Top of the World as a Top Performer, Top Performing Corporation etc.
 So what does Extreme Featism means. I decided to look at definitions separately by first breaking it as Feat and Extreme and then looking at the meaning of Extremism.
To my pea-sized brain – the parallel came from the book I had read in which there was a mention about BHAG – Big Hairy Audicacious Goal. The organisations which imbibe this philosophy ( and it permeates down from the Top i.e. the C Suite members speaking in One Voice about the Goal in a committed Voice). Organisations then begin to look at HIT – High Impact Teams driven by Goals and Objectives across functions and work towards making the BHAG true. To my mind – this denotes the Feat Extremism or Extreme Featism and I use these terms interchangeably/
Lets now look at the definitions.

  2. e.g. The Eiffel Tower is a remarkable feat of engineering.
