The world desperately needs a new breed of leader. A leader who can help nations and organisations navigate the challenges of leading in turbulent times. Success requires leaders with a creative mindset. Leaders who are able to respond to the challenges of the 21st century.
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you’ve been on a farm you will have noticed paths created by cows that zigzag across the land. Cows like us are creatures of habit. When one cow starts to walk across the meadow a second one follows, then a third and soon the rest follow. Soon the cows have created a cow path. A well-worn route from one point to another.
Leadership consists of two journeys. The first is the journey of self discovery. A personal leadership journey. The second is the journey to creative leadership. As Steve Jobs said it’s the journey to “make a dent in the universe“.
