Abstract

A visionary leader must have an awareness of the past, a feel for the present and a clear picture of the future. Perhaps the greatest skill that tomorrow's educational leader can possess is the ability to enact change. While many people fear change, Spencer Johnson (1998) clearly, and humorously, illustrates the importance of accepting change through Who Moved My Cheese? While the author warns, "If you do not change, you can become extinct" (p.46), he also suggests smelling the cheese (your current situation) often, "so you know when it is getting old (and change is needed)" (p.52). I prefer looking in new directions, and towards positive change, because "movement in a new direction helps you find new cheese" (p.56).
