Leaders everywhere are constantly being challenged to be create breakthroughs, to think and to do things differently because old ways don't work anymore and ready-made solutions often don't solve the problem anyway. Leadership breakthroughs come in many varieties. They can be:

  • Leading-edge organizations
  • Distinctive business models
  • Innovative forms for organizing work and connecting people who may not have worked together before
  • New products, designs, and services originating from big ideas or small steps that build on past experience
  • Novel techniques that overcome political obstacles to making a project a success
  • Unusual ways to link people to each other and to information, both internally and externally
  • Uncommon approaches to building the right climate to challenge the team's creativity
