The default position has become one where teaching is not leading. It is about managing.

Joe Boutte's insight:

Martin Zwilling provides some great advice for everyday leadership with several suggestions for leader agility.  I particularly like the “big bang theory of change", where Mr. Zwilling states, "innovations only come through huge and expensive new projects, with big rollouts, is a thing of the past".   He is right when he says that "new innovations should be seen as experiments, which are inexpensive, measurable, quick to fail, and without retribution if they don’t work."  Leaders experiment everyday or they should!   Nice read.
