BLUFThe author of this article claims that too many business leaders are afraid to do things differently in case of failure—as this might affect their careers. However, this article describes a leader who was prepared to take risks no matter the effect on her career.
This article by Glenn Llopis, writing for Forbes, makes the following points:
- Llopis met Annette Walker, president of City of Hope Orange County, who was celebrating the opening of the new City of Hope Orange County Lennar Foundation Cancer Center—the most advanced comprehensive cancer center in Orange County, Calif.
- Walker told Llopis that one of the biggest challenges was getting people to understand the vision.
- If you’re afraid to make big moves or suggest new ideas to avoid risk, you’re just choosing a worse risk—the risk of not making a difference.
- Have the courage to be the one who does make a difference.
