Have you ever had a great idea or an excellent proposal rejected because it was deemed “out of the box” for the company? It can be very demoralizing to put so much effort into something, only to have the company’s leadership shut it down because they are not prepared to go outside their comfort zone.
On the flip side, have you ever had the privilege to work for a company that embraced creativity, innovation, and unrealistic expectations? There is a reason why good companies become great, and the average companies remain average.
Great leaders are prepared to push the limits of their industry while embracing innovative concepts and ideas. Leaders with an inspiring vision challenge their teams to leave their comfort zones by communicating optimism about future goals even though it may appear challenging.
The world needs more Inspirational leaders who are not afraid to upset the status quo, but more importantly, leaders who are prepared to step outside their comfort zone to inspire the next generation of Inspirational leaders to believe in the impossible.
