Are the BEST LEADERS in a TURBULENT WORLD truly RISK SEEKING VISIONARIES?This insight is fascinating ..

Adopted from the following great insight shared by Jim Collins from the book Great by Choice

Entrenched myth: Successful leaders in a turbulent world are bold, risk-seeking visionaries. Contrary finding: The best leaders we studied did not have a visionary ability to predict the future. They observed what worked, figured out why it worked, and built upon proven foundations. They were not more risk taking, more bold, more visionary, and more creative than the comparisons. They were more disciplined, more empirical, and more paranoid.”
