Struggle Can Bring Ingenuity and Inventiveness

“Anywhere the struggle is great, the level of ingenuity and inventiveness is high.”  Eleni Gabre-Madhin, former World Bank economist

Times are tough now. But, I am also seeing some pretty amazing solutions and ideas coming from my clients looking to handle effectively the current market turbulence. Whether changing at the personal, team, organizational, country, sector, or world level, remember that there is a silver lining…you just have to seek it out. On the business front, organizational change is imminent – you’d better embrace it. I am not sure what other option we really have.

ACTION: For one day (how about today?), make an explicit effort to welcome struggle and to explore some out of the box thinking. You just never know what you might create.
