In these turbulent times, clinging to the status quo is a surefire path to mediocrity and irrelevance. Too often, we tend to overestimate the risk of trying something new, yet we underestimate the risk of standing still.

Let’s explore the differences between an Innovative Leader and a Traditionalist:


+ Embraces risk
+ Urgency
+ Fast-moving
+ Creates new ideas
+ Bottom-up
+ Idea-centric
+ Nimble
+ Fire in the belly


– Avoids risk
– Lethargic
– Slow-moving
– Protects old ideas
– Top-down
– Rules-centric
– Bureaucratic
– Complacent
