Much of the philosophy of culture keynote speaker Jeremy Gutsche centers around intentional destruction and experimental failure. Borrowing from his award-winning book 'Exploiting Chaos' -- which you can read for FREE here -- his innovation keynote speeches explain how chaos, experimentation and uncertainty is beneficial for companies because it forces them to test out new things and restructure their organizations.

A team's leader is responsible for orchestrating experimentation and for making important decisions. He uses politician Colin Powell as an example to illustrate this point:

"Powell expands, 'Ironically, by procrastinating on the difficult choices, by trying to get anyone made, and by treating everyone equally nicely regardless of their contributions, you'll simply ensure that the only people you'll wind up angering are the most creative and productive people in the organization.'"

If leaders fail to make bold decisions and changes, organizations fail to adapt, and the most creative and valuable individuals will likely leave.

A leader needs to take advantage of chaos to restructure and reevaluate and to implement bold change.
