Great video from John Hagel of Deloitte’s Centre for the Edge on the Passion of the Explorer – a common characteristic of high performing people:
- Long term commitment to a domain
- Questing disposition
- Connecting disposition
Call them Change Agents. Call them leaders of the Responsive Organisation. Call them Disruptors. Call them bearers of the Challenger Spirit. Call them innovators. Call them rebels. The pattern is consistent that change is driven by the passionate, the learning oriented and the networked.
What ever you call these people, make sure you treasure them.
