In watching this video, you can see the emergence of a genuine creative leader at work. Creative leadership requires conviction and commitment with one component marking out the great creative leaders from the others - personal risk!! The great creative leaders in our world, Socrates, Joan of Arc, J.B. Priestley, Nehru, Nelson Mandela to name just a few all took great personal risks to ensure their beliefs in one way or another effected the world in which we live for the common good. Whilst it is difficult to say just exactly what the common good is, universally we know it when we see it and we know when the common good is not being served. Historically the sign of a great creative leader is when someone takes the risk to speak out against entrenched power that we know refuses to allow proper debate regardless of the risks.Julian Assange, Founder of Wikileaks has done that.Watch the video!!
