Kobe Bryant played his best, every time. It does not matter whether he was number 1 or number 2 on the team. He gives his best every time. And though I was not a fan, I surely know who he was and what he did.
Design New Solutions
Play bigger when developing leaders. Old ways of thinking about leadership have passed. Leaders are not like glasses we need to fill. No. The leaders we need today and the leaders we want tomorrow are creators and innovators.
They know that to create meaning and significance in the world, they must be leaders who think and play bigger.
Help leaders think and play bigger. Enable them to create and offer new products, services, and experiences that people have not imagined before.
Leaders who play bigger create new categories and make the rules. You too can play bigger. Playing same-same, safe, and small will not serve the world.
Great organizations grow great leaders out of ordinary people.
The world is fast changing. Those who play small, safe and same-same will fade and die. Those of us who care must do something radical now.
In the olden days, people believe that leaders are born not made. Either you have it or you don’t. So, they made slaves and kings and freemen who aren’t free at all.
Until now, many of us still doubt our abilities to lead. This is why they allow others to make decisions for them.
Many of us depend on those who promise a new tomorrow.
The promise like “change is coming” attracts them. Change always comes. We cannot prevent change. We cannot even delay it.
But we can define, design, and deliver the change we want.
