Imagination is the key to innovation.
Our world is fast paced and constantly changing. Yesterday’s knowledge alone is not enough for continued success. Imagination is essential for anyone, especially for leaders, who not only have to lead people into the future but have to foresee the challenges not yet known. Some may hear the word imagination and immediately think of children. There is nothing childish about placing emphasis on imagination and making it a vital part of your leadership competencies. In some cases letting your imagination take control may be difficulty, but the more you use your imagination, the stronger your ‘imagination muscle’ will become. This ability will reveal a rich source of infinite possibilities for both present and future goals and challenges.
In the golf industry imagination is vital to keep courses on the cutting edge and maximize player experiences. There is constant competition with the economy, other courses and other innovative experience offerings, so courses must always be thinking towards the future.
“The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent.” –Arnold Schwarzenegger
