Before we dive into how you can drive change and build your career, let’s first delve a bit further into the risks of leading without having formal authority. The dilemma you face is in many ways similar to that of a superhero. Superheroes are simultaneously loved and hated. They are loved because they are incorruptible and can give a strong helping hand to make the world better; they are hated because they are different and can do things that normal people cannot do. Digital thinkers face the same dilemma. Their combination of personality traits gives them the potential to be successful, but that potential goes hand in hand with the risk of being cast aside by other colleagues.
