Not the same river

Leadership, Rivers and Growing Edges

Dave Kinnear1-On Leadership

A continuing theme on this blog, and indeed on almost any leadership forum, is the need for a flood of new ideas; new solutions. To most people in leadership roles, that implies that we desire fresh thinking. We want people to continuously push on their growing edges. And that fresh thinking applies to many aspects of our organizations, not just products or services. We need to have new ideas about economic models and business models as well. We say we believe new thinking is necessary to avoid disruptive changes that come at us from our blindside. Yet, as I look at the many businesses and management teams I work with, I usually see a pretty fixed world view. People are struggling to navigate the stream of external and internal changes and to find new ways of responding.
