29. Leaders never get caught fighting the last war. Leaders see around corners. They have the ability to take seemingly random bits of information, to take interactions in the world around them and build from these a picture in their intuition of what the future can hold, should hold. Then they look for evidence to support their point of view. Then they jump into action to make the future a better more effective place. They do not get caught making a last stand. How could they? They saw it coming and adjusted their strategy to move in a new direction. This is not easy but is the realm of leaders. Challenge: Practice seeing around corners…Take ten pieces of new and random information. Imagine patterns in the data. Come up with a common theme then create a story to connect them all.
