Don't miss to read the observation by Nirmala Palaniappan, a Knowledge Manager, on another article that is about Leadership and change:
Vigilant vs. Operational Leaders, Thursday, September 21, 2006

It is a story of risks and attitudes that encourage/discourage risk-taking and long-term thinking....reminds me of one more thing that I came across somewhere....it's about getting out of your comfort zone and seeing reality for what it is.
