Change is the biological order of the universe. How leaders come to those changes is more important than the challenges they represent. It's hard for us to change, as a species we seem to want to maintain the status quo. We are comfortable with the familiar even if it keeps us from achieving greater success by doing things differently. In our quest for vision, if we can balance our fear of change with our hopes for the future and learn to explore our preconceptions and face our fears can we take the risk to become great leaders. In this age of public scrutiny and accountability, Dr. Hammerschlag discusses leadership in terms of pursuing authenticity; creating environments that encourage risk-taking; appreciating the power of the unconscious, intuitive mind; and transmitting the clearest sense of mission and values to our team.
