    Change is hard. 

    “Change is hard because people overestimate the value of what they have and underestimate the value of what they may gain by giving that up.”

    Our responsibility?

    Leadership Innovation? 

    Individual creativity is made up of three things:

    Thinking differently

    Feeling differently

    Focusing, or committing, differently.

    You need to be willing to come up with new ideas, even unusual ones. To care about solving problems that other people might think are impossible or unimportant. And, the willpower to take action on your ideas, and see them through.

    The power to be innovative is already inside you. Human beings are inherently creative creatures. Some people are more creative than others, and we’re all creative in different ways. And you can learn to be more creative and innovative.

    Start collecting ideas. Get outside your comfort zone and try to find ideas that are unproven and new. Use new sources and collect ideas you might normally dismiss.

    Take those ideas and transform them in a lot of different ways, such as reversing the assumption of an idea, or reversing its implementation. Make it prettier, uglier, longer, thinner, higher, or lower, etc.

    Be willing to take an idea and change it to make it yours, or to fit your purpose.

    Leadership lessons. 

    Did you know that often leaders aren’t ruined by their mistakes? More often, they’re ruined by their response to their mistakes.

    Sharing leadership… 

    When we work for the common good, we experience each other in new ways. We don’t worry about differences, or status, or traditional power relationships. We worry about whether we’ll succeed in accomplishing what needs to be done. We focus on the work, not on each other. We learn what trust is.

    Our words impact others. 

    Someone said, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Every day, we are shaping reality for someone by the words that we use with them.

    Wholesome words build people up.

    Wholesome words are timely. 

    Wholesome words provide grace.

    Primary force behind successful change? 

    Leadership is different from management, and the primary force behind successful change of any significance is the former, not the latter. Without sufficient leadership, the probability of mistakes increases greatly and the probability of success decreases accordingly. This is true no matter how the change is conceptualised—that is, in terms of new strategies, reengineering, acquisitions, restructuring, quality programs, cultural redesign, and so on. Because the rate of change is increasing, leadership is a growing part of managerial work. Far too many people in positions of power still fail to recognize or acknowledge this most important observation. What do you think?
