Competition is changing overnight, and product lifecycles often last for just a few months. Permanence has been torn asunder. We are in a time that demands a new agility and flexibility: leaders must have the skill and insight to prepare for a future that is rushing at them faster than ever before. In What I Learned From Frogs in Texas, Jim Carroll provides concrete guidance on how to turn challenges into opportunity ; anticipate future trends that will impact you ; move from a culture of indecision to one that is forward-thinking and decisive ; instill an innovative culture in your company ; develop key leadership skills for the future ; and view change as an opportunity to pursue not as a threat to be feared.
