Unlocking creativity requires celebrating uncertainty and embracing risk. Most businesses aren't designed that way. Nor are most human beings.
Instead, we stop ourselves, unconsciously and consciously. We act against our own self interest, willingly and unwillingly. We are hesitant, we are anxious, and very often - far more often than we realize or are prepared to admit - we are afraid.
Leading a successful business requires we confront our own frailties at the very same time that we are grappling with the multi-faceted threats to modern businesses.
