Yeah, yeah… I already know what you’re thinking. Young leaders are innovative. Young leaders have great ideas. Young leaders are seeing things that older leaders can’t see.
You’d be right. Young leaders are all of those things.
Young leaders are innovative. Young leaders generate great ideas. Young leaders have insane vision for the future.
But young leaders can be even more innovative (and influential) with a few tweaks.
Thomas Edison was the inventor of the light bulb. But even before the light bulb people couldn’t say Edison wasn’t innovative. He had hundreds, if not thousands, of patents and many ideas that he was still testing.
He was innovative. He was creative. He was the man.
We can see with Edison that even though he was an innovator, he always found ways to be even more innovative.
