“Leadership is an artistic enterprise, creating balance between structure, improvisation, and imagination. The end result is value creation, and to get there leaders must navigate the needs and wants of many stakeholders. The key is for leaders to understand, fundamentally, what kind of value they are creating. What is their intention? From that place of clarity and groundedness, the leader can flourish and make art that has true value.”
