Disruptive Heroes: Leadership for a New Era by Bill Jensen at Center for Creative Leadership on 5 August 2013
This article is a call to action for leaders to break from convention and disrupt the status quo. The author provides four areas where leaders can be disruptive (his book, “Disrupt! Think Epic! Be Epic”, provides a total of 25):
- Question everything
- Kill what you cherish most
- Have lots of affairs (on your boss)
- Never accept “dingless” tools
This article may resonate with some, but not with me. It smacks of being different just for the sake of being different, without really demonstrating the value of being different. Perhaps it’s simply another form of “visioning” – what do you think?
