A traditional leader says, “Here I am.” A creative leader says, “there you are.”
A creative leader realizes that when people aren’t having fun, they seldom do good work.
Creative leaders realize they have intertwined roles of substance and symbol. Their role is not just to know the technical aspects of the business and to exert authority, but to be a symbol of inspiration and connection for the group.
Creative leaders want to change lives.
They are a symbol of hope that things will be better under their leadership. They give us the courage to do things they we wouldn’t do on our own.
