According to Robert Fritz, the Creative Process is the most successful process in history which leaders have a chance to use if they want to be effective in their day to day life. He urged leaders to work in teams for good progress.
He emphasized that if leaders are not creating what they want to work towards, they tend to react or respond to circumstances which make them stark. He also added that Circumstances lead to Problem-solving which also leads to more actions.
