I recently had the absolute thrill of traveling to Cuba. There was a palpable energy in the air, as Cubans find themselves on the cusp of a new beginning for their island nation. Imagine the buzz as U.S. airlines begin landing in Havana with an influx of passengers and tourism dollars that many Cubans have only dreamed of for nearly six decades.
Yet amid the all the excitement, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of uncertainty, as if the natives found themselves wondering if all the change in the air would eventually blow away the magnificent colors, aromas and sounds of “old Cuba.” Nothing seemed to embody that sentiment more than when I saw a Cuban artist’s collage of a McDonald’s sign mixed in among the grand old architecture of Havana.
Linda Naiman, founder of Creativity at Work, tells us that “in a world of change, success comes from looking for the next opportunity and having the ability to find hidden connections and insights into new products or services.” In other words, we need to be creative to be opportunistic.
