Leadership always needs courage to make some changes. Rather than simply waiting for chances, leader had better to change the situation proactively. I read some article about the comparison between transaction and transition leaders this week. Many researches intended that the former type of leader is much willing to pay more attention on each individual and to take care about his/ her improvement. Sometime, they are much more willing to lead the modification in the organization.
We always read the stories about the enterprise just staying in their position without noticing the change around the world. Kodak is an ordinary example for this kind of story. It once had been equal to film. Now it has to face the destiny of bankruptcy. Therefore, business owners have always to be aware the change around the world. This is beneficial to keep the competitive on the market and also helpful to make long-term prospection for the enterprise. The result is heavily relying on the leadership. It is not only keeps competitive currently but also leads proper changes to fit the world.
