If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”
~Antoine De Saint Exupery
Innovation takes creativity, and creative people need room to think and grow if businesses are going to engage the power of their creative thought. As leaders, our focus needs to be on inspiring innovation in our employees and removing roadblocks so that they can do their best work. Management is not equivalent to leadership yet why do leaders insist on “managing” their people, their teams?
