Leaders as Change Managers

"If you want to truly understand something; try to change it."
- Kurt Lewin

Leaders do things other people have not done, or do not do at all. They do things in advance of someone else. They make new things, they are innovators. Having learned from what has been done in the past, either by themselves or others, the leader lives with one eye on the present and the other looking into the future. They take all this information and put it together in a different way. Successful leaders are both right- and left-brain thinkers. They must also be intuitive, artistic, and conceptual. Leaders must quickly synthesize information in order to move through the chaos and maintain a sense of order and balance with those that they lead. Leaders are the ultimate "change managers."
