The 10 Most Innovative Leaders Changing the Face of Business, 2022
ON THE COVER
Innovation Distinguishes Between A Leader And A Follower
Organizations that prioritize innovation tend to embrace leaders that have some exceptional characteristics and behaviors leading the business to higher levels of success. Innovative leaders always have a vision of the future, looking not just for immediate success but also for long-term goals. They can seamlessly close the gap between a stated desire for innovation, and the unfortunate reality of resistance to change. They establish trust in their employees, which is reflected in themselves. Employees who trust their leaders are more likely to think of alternative ways to conduct their business and that becomes the driving force behind organizational innovation.
At Beyond Exclamation we honor the work of these Innovative Leaders who challenge the status quo of the business world by relying not on a safe and comfortable path but on their future vision to make decisions. We dedicate this issue titled “The 10 Most Innovative Leaders Changing the Face of Business, 2022” to them. Featuring on the cover of this issue we have the successful journey of Sharon Mason, CEO of Buller District Council. As a leader, Sharon aims to bring empathy, humility, and selflessness to each role she fills, with the intention of achieving improved social, economic, cultural, and environmental outcomes for the community she lives and works in. Sharon has played a pivotal role in crafting Council’s economic strategy, which has resulted in their successful application to the central government for Provincial Growth Fund. Under her inspirational leadership, Buller District Council has transformed significantly. It is now in a stronger position to promote its goal – the well-being of its local communities. Sharon was named one of the finalists for the 2021 Women of Influence Award because of her contribution to improving the economic indicators of the Buller district.
