Leadership Problem of Practice:                   

Finding Clarity in Innovation

 

 

A challenge that continues to surface is the balance between autonomy and being given direction.  In giving people the autonomy to find their own path, we end up with many people doing great things, but ultimately different things, and some people that just don't move forward at all.  When giving direction we are not honoring agency, and this can cause animosity and resentment towards leadership.  There is an inherently blurry path in innovation, we often don't know exactly where we are heading or what it should look like, it is the pain of being a pioneer.  This blurry nature of innovation has proven to be tough for those that want/need the clarity versus those thrive in ambiguity.
