Innovation and attendant change is difficult – for people are normally opposed to change. Many people are resistant to change in even silly things like the cup we use for our morning coffee ! In good or even in moderate times, leaders have a real tough time in promoting innovation and change.
Machiavelli has a great quote on the difficulty that leaders face in facilitating change :
However, the current global financial crisis (refers to 2008) will make change and innovation easier for leaders countries,companies and individuals.
Why ? Because as Platosaid “Necessity is the mother of invention.” Sure, if there was a time that required change – it is this.
Staying still is not really an option both for corporate leaders and entrepreneurs today.
