“For innovation to exist you have to feel inspired.” This comes from a clear sense of purpose and meaning in the work.
WHY CREATIVE LEADERS MATTER
Leaders are not born, but they are made from the actions, choices and the consequences they made to achieve the position as a leader, whether they are making the wise choices or they are willing to risk it.
“In today’s fast-paced, continually changing business world, you need powerful thinking skills to make decisions quickly and - more importantly - effectively."
TO BE A INNOVATIVE LEADERS
Innovative leaders guide others to understand themselves and find their purpose. They let workers take the risk that might be a success or a failure, because they believe that in order to deepen their knowledge, whether the worker succeeded or fail in the task, by trying new things and for innovative and thinking. Last but not least they support the growth that those workers have experience by encouraging the leaders to improve their skills in reading articles and making exercises together with the team.
"Power thinking’ is thinking about how to create successes by using your positive-thinking abilities and developing your self-esteem."
THE FUTURE THEY ENVISION
Having a leader, who is corrupted and not follow the right perspective, is not a leader with a future. Vision is about change and how that change can affect the person’s point of view, and that vision can be yours alone but it is the vision that the company has together. It doesn’t mean that this future you all see will come to you, it means you and your workers will do their duties and are willing to do so much and even suffer for it because they realized that it is for the greater good.
"If you want to be successful in your business decisions, you must resolve the conflict between emotion and logic."
In conclusion, to be a good innovative leader, they must deepen the knowledge about how to outshine other companies by being creative and using that skill to invent a product with an outstanding value that will results to satisfying your customers and gain more loyalty. In addition, they must be the leaders that not just guides their workers but to also to be the leader with a bright future.
