The nature and value of experience has changed along with the changes which have taken place in the external environment. The definition of experience is radically different than the one used by most business leaders in the past. It is not about the number of years of deep professional experience in a narrowly defined role or within a certain professional skill set. Instead, it is the rich variety and diversity of multiple different personal experiences that act as stimuli for the brain. It is the varied tapestry of personal experiences that helps ensure we do not become locked into narrow channels of thinking, but instead leap across domains to collect, share and assemble new patterns of insight.
