The real leaders creative act

“We're here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?”
Steve Jobs.

As far as I know the concept of putting a dent in the universe was originally put forward by Warren Bennis, a true leadership guru in my view and one whose writings have and continue to greatly influence me.

"Devising and maintaining an atmosphere in which others can put a dent in the universe is the leader's creative act."
Warren Bennis

More about Warren Bennis here.

What kind of an atmosphere are you devising and maintaining and what kind of a dent in the universe are others making as a result?

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
Ian

I work with leaders to conceive and achieve highly successful change initiatives.
