Tom Peter’s Re-Imagine is Leader_Shift!

If you were to look in a dictionary for Tom Peter’s Five Points of Re-Imagine you more than likely find this picture. Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, co-founders, of the Apple Computer. A walk down memory lane would easily take us to a time, pre 1984, where life was very different. Since then work, play, entertainment, and life has fundamentally shifted. Technology, and specifically Apple Inc, has moved us into an era that hasn’t evolved us as much as changed the whole paradigm we see ourselves and life through. But the Re-Imagine points are not just for the pantheon of business gods but for every leader who dares to get intense, disruptive, risk bias, adventuresome, and imaginative. Go break things!

  3. Risk, a requirement for innovation

  5. Re-imagination, fostering breakthrough ideas for organizational transformation
