If we really want to move from being the sage on the stage to the guide on the side, we have to be willing to take some risks.
And if things do go awry, it’s OK.
It happens to us all. To paraphrase
Randy Nelson, the core skill of an innovator is error recovery, not failure
avoidance. If we really want to move
from being the sage on the stage to the
guide on the side, we have to be willing to take some risks. Believe us—if
our wonderful 40-year veterans in the
wild state of South Dakota can do it,
you can too.
