Challenge the Process

Being a leader involves challenging the process and not going with the status quo. Being the one who always searches for ways to grow and improve through seeking out challenging opportunities to grow your own skills and abilities. Challenging others to try out new and innovative ways to improve their work. Thinking out of the box is ordinary.

The work of leaders is change. The status quo is unacceptable to them. Leaders search for opportunities by seeking innovative ways to change, grow, and improve. Leaders also experiment and take risks by constantly generating small wins and learning from mistakes. Extraordinary things don’t get done in huge leaps forward; they get done one step at a time. Leaders demonstrate the courage to continue the quest despite opposition and setbacks (Kouzes, 2003).
