What works today, won't work in the future

One way to strengthen a company is to make it reliable and consistent.

One way to make a company irrelevant is to keep it reliable and consistent at the same.

There is tremendous pressure on established companies in mature markets to "stay the same".  Wall Street loves consistent numbers.  Yet, the very thing that makes us successful today, can be what prevents us from achieving tomorrow. 

Wouldn't it be great if we could just keep doing what we do - without fear of disruption?  Imagine how comfortable that would be.

...but then we wouldn't need leaders.  Leaders routinely assess trajectories of those they lead.  They are the eyes to the future.

Ask yourself today, am I ok with our current trajectory, or must we change?  What evidence do I have to support my conclusion?  Do my trusted independent advisors believe the same?
