It doesn't take a leader to notice an opportunity or a problem. It doesn't take a leader to have ideas about how to leverage the opportunity or solve the problem. It takes a leader to mobilize people to innovate and take action. Innovation is not a magical power that some possess and most despair of ever understanding. Innovation is simply the process of seeing things in a new way and embracing the process of change.

Change is an obvious and undeniable fact of life. Change simply means moving forward and not standing still. The most successful leaders are those that don't run from change, but turn it to their advantage.
