Great by Choice: Chapter 1

It's always possible to go from good to great. (p. 8)

Not a lot happened in this chapter, but there were several previews of myths the researchers dispelled.

  • Successful leaders are bold, risk-seeking visionaries.
  • Innovation distinguishes successful companies.
  • You're either quick or you're dead.
  • Radical change on the outside means radical change on the inside.
  • Success means you had a lot of good luck.

So what does this mean for educators?

Combining "creativity with discipline" (p. 10) would allow for someone to succeed - and more. Creativity seems to be the key.

Enough rambling.
