Fear is the innovator's biggest enemy, writes Josh Linkner, because it leads us to shy away from failure -- and it's only through failing time and again that we'll eventually achieve success. James Dyson famously designed 5,000 failed prototypes before perfecting his vacuum cleaner, and modern business teams need to know that they're also expected to fail many times before they hit the jackpot. "Push your team to 'fail,' and you'll end up unleashing an abundance of creativity that you didn't even know existed," Linkner promises.
