Business lessons from ‘Lionheart’

Lionheart has been making waves from the latter part of last year. Being Genevieve Nnaji’s directorial debut and the first Nigerian movie to be acquired by Netflix, it is quite a big deal.

I am impressed by the movie because it seamlessly fuses modern storytelling with our ‘Nigerianness’. This is not to say that the movie was devoid of errors. However, what I want us to focus on are the business lessons from the movie.

1. Prioritize research

Too many people in Nigeria just go headlong into business because they assume it is a booming market or others are doing well at it. When ‘Lionheart’ gets into trouble, we see Genevieve’s character, Adaeze do her research first to determine the right course of action. 

2. Consult with experienced people

Even though you are all about doing your own homework and finding things out for yourself, there is also a place for seeking guidance from people who are established in the business, no matter how archaic their methods are. If Adaeze had employed this, she would have saved time.

3. Listen to your employees

You may know the figures and facts about the business but it is your employees who do the work every day. Ask for their input on new directions to take. Though Adaeze’s father failed to do this, when she came aboard, she did and discovered their mistake.

4. Build relationships

No business can survive on its own. This is why you must go out of your way to seek mutually beneficial relationships and one way of doing so is by being kind to all. Adaeze’s uncle did this and it paid off big time.

5. Family support matters

Running a business is never easy. There are days it will feel like the whole world has conspired against you, so you’ll need a support system to get you through the rough patch. Therefore, make sure you keep your family close and learn to accept their help.
