Eight Attributes of an Industry Change Agent

  1. They are perpetually curious. Never arrogant.
  2. They always ask the question, “WHY?” And the won’t accept the answer: “Because we’ve always done it that way.” That is never good enough. In fact, they find it 100%  unacceptable.
  3. They are willing to forfeit permission, for forgiveness.
  4. They don’t get comfortable.
  5. They’re optimistic and they inspire.
  6. They’re willing to receive criticism and still move forward. Mere words won’t stop them.
  7. They open the door every time opportunity knocks. They may not always walk through, but they’ll stick their heads in and have a look around.

And finally, our CEO’s favorite and personal motto: They don’t go where the path may lead. They go where there is no path, and leave a trail!
