Children have amazing imaginations, pretending to be Belle dancing with the Beast or shooting a web as Spider Man. It is refreshing.
While I do not promote living in a fantasy world, doesn’t leadership need a little imagination?
Imagination is about creative power. We need creative power to provide a focus on what can happen when we believe. When leaders create that kind of vision, people follow.
How do we know it works? Look around, it happens everyday. This is the power of leadership!
We can learn from children by spending time in a world built by their creative power. Their ability to see what is unseen, believe the impossible, act it out in their minds, and speak with incredible creativity might spark a little life into our leadership.
