Every organization needs a strong team. Every progressive organization needs a dynamic team that will lead the organization forward. Without a dynamic team of unique personalities, likes and interests the creative culture and the life of an organization grows bland and stale. Individuals who are nontraditional create a healthy tension in the way ideas are generated, shared and executed by offering unpredictable perspectives. Some of dynamic individuals include:
Freaks – As Tom Peters put it, freaks are the only (only) ones who succeed – as in, make it into the history books. Jeremy Gutsche states that Nontraditional thinkers offer the maverick ideas and the personality a company needs to adapt.

How you envision the world
The process of achieving the Vision
The action & activity
The methods, systems, approaches
When the Vision is not reached, it is not the Vision that needs changing, but the Mission – the methods of attaining the Vision.
