Bishop Joseph Warren Walker, III, Author, No Opportunity Wasted: The Art of Execution

Remember when you were young and hungry, with the future just beyond your doorstep? Each day was an opportunity to fulfill your purpose, to achieve your dream. You ate, breathed and slept success – when you slept at all. There were 24 hours in a day to move you closer to your goal. Why waste a minute?

Creativity is fundamental to driving the market. It's no longer a word used to describe aesthetics or the "icing on the cake"; creativity is a required competency for organizations who seek to identify new market opportunities, define new ways of running their business, and ship innovative products and services. But the creative process, and creative people, can be frustrating. The process is messy and organic, and the people are emotional and eccentric. Often, conservative companies who have established ways of doing and thinking have trouble attracting and retaining creative talent, who feel stifled by regimented processes, rules, and a hierarchical culture of consensus.

A quote widely attributed to hockey great Wayne Gretzky is one you may be familiar with: “Skate to where the puck is going to be, not to where it’s been.” These words have been applied to any number of business situations and have perhaps been overused. Even so, they illustrate an important recruiting principle that senior leaders should understand—one that many of the CEOs with whom I work are unaware.

Geoff Tuff and Steven Goldbach, Authors, Detonate: Why – and How – Corporations Must Blow up Best Practices (and Bring a Beginner’s Mind) to Survive

There aren’t many successful CEOs in the world who feel frozen when they need to take action.  But there is one choice that can feel paralyzing: when the time comes to blow up a part of the business that is working today but is unlikely to work in the future. Making this decision can be especially challenging when a leader is replacing something that works, with a new thing that has never been done before or never proven to work. While the need to address long-term capability may seem obvious, the need to “deliver the business” creates an urgent and important dilemma.

Mostafa Sayyadi, Author, Transformational Leadership: How To Prosper as a Leader In Today's Hypercompetitive Environment

The business environment is constantly changing as organizations are increasingly participating in global markets. Hypercompetition has become the norm. Organizations can design, copy, or update products and services easier with more adaptability then ever today.
