Innovation can be scary--invoking visions of established ways being turned inside out.
Ironically, control can actually be increased through disruption. Like the racecar driver accelerating through the turns, so innovative activities can help us gain control because we are being proactive rather than reactive.
Change happens anyway. It's been said that the only thing that stays the same is change. Those who embrace and lead change will enjoy greater control and momentum than those who don't.
