There are…

There are two sure ways to fail: never get started and quit before you succeed.

Many companies promote the language of risk-taking and innovation but are so concerned with short term profit goals that their culture discourages innovation (trying new things) and abandons promising projects too soon. It shouldn’t require exceptional moral courage to try new things and stick with them.

– Michael Josephson

Think of managing change…

…. as an adventure. It tests your skills and abilities. It brings forth talent that may have been dormant. Change is also a training ground for leadership. When we think of leaders, we remember times of change, innovation and conflict. Leadership is often about shaping a new way of life. To do that, you must advance change, take risks and accept responsibility for making change happen

– Charles Rice

People who are……

……. not leaders automatically gravitate toward lines–limitations set by others. Many people are taught this in kindergarten when they are instructed to stay within the lines while colouring. But leaders are more creative than that. They look for options and opportunities. They try to take things in a new direction, or beyond the limit. Progress and innovation are made by people who think without lines.
