“It’s the faculty for seeing things that are not yet there, for conceiving of experiences that we have no yet had. So when I think about imagination and leadership, to lead people or for a team to lead itself, it has to know where it’s going. And imagination is really the only way that it can do that. If you look around at your resources, your team, the experiences that you’re aware of — and again the problems that you want to address — imagination is how you move beyond the constraints of your current situation and think, ‘Well, where do we want to go, what’s the best that this could be?'” — Porter BayneFCS
