A Sacred Texture Analysis of 1 Peter

Leading with a Creative and Innovative DesignAs organizations continue to move into a world of chaos and unpredictability, we will find ourselves using words such as “creative leadership” and innovative leadership” to provide ourselves some sense of structure. In light of the trend, are there any creative and innovative design principles that could apply to our now? Does God speak to our current and unpredictable condition?

This article, “Leading with a Creative and Innovative Design” provides an analysis of the times and three principles for organizational leaders to consider in the effort to keep the organizations going forward. The paper provides the reader with a “then and now” look to provide a setting for the presentation of the principles. Finally, Leading with a Creative and Innovative Design suggests specific suggestions about how to make change less destructive and more positive.
