Leading with the Imagination
Greg Stiekes on the importance of the imagination for leaders:
A true leader has the quality of imagination. A leader offers real guidance to others because he or she is able to perceive something that is not immediately accessible in the physical world, to “see” the unseen, to envision possibilities, to draw inferences, and to do all of these things in a way that others commonly do not. To put it another way, you become a leader for others when they recognize that you possess important knowledge or insight that they have not yet discovered or learned.
