There is a fashion in business and politics at present to look for strong leaders, perhaps always and not just at present …. I am a very strong leader when I wish to influence my sheep and am carrying a bucket of food – although at some times of the year my rams are less keen to follow me than to seek the ewes. Elsewhere, I am less influential!
There is also a need for innovation, which seems to be a very human trait. Necessity may be the parent of invention, and of course we have some of that at present. Also of course, the cross-country and Telemark skiing mantra, “Free the heels, free the mind” is interesting – putting things into a different context will lead to new thinking.
