Successful 21st century leader is not just a "play-it-safe" spectator in the stands,
but the "let's take a chance" player who is fully involved in the game. As a contestant
and participant, he or she does not postpone tough decisions but makes a commitment
to succeed. He or she is not afraid of criticism knowing that just as criticism and
opposition will come from unknown and unexpected sources, so support will come,and
often "just in time" for the leader to accomplish his or her task successfully.
