We continue with our new series of blogs looking at the Archetype's. Here we explore The Renegade. 

Are you fighting the disruptions of 2020 or riding the wave of radical innovation?

“This has all become intolerable – am I the only one who can see where this is all going? – I can tell you, it’s not going to look pretty at all.
We can’t go on like this.
What do you mean “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Time to remove the blinkers and the earplugs.
And while you’re at it, you can put way those rose tinted glasses as well.
Can’t you see just how broke it already is?

Let me tell you. Where it looks like we’re blindly heading today, and where it’s possible we could conceivably get to if we open our eyes to change, are two very different places.
Something needs to be done – now – urgently.
Yes, I know it’s not going to be popular at first, but someone needs to stand up and say something.  
We need a radical rethink.
It’s time to wake up to the fact that our whole organization has not only completely lost touch with its founding principles, but there are so many new approaches and technologies out there we could be adopting that we haven’t even considered yet.
There’s nothing more powerful than an idea who’s time has come.
The only way is up.

This whole system needs shaking up – no time to waste.
Yes of course, safety first, but somewhere along the line we are going to have to take a few risks.
We haven’t got time to work out all the details – best to just get started and learn by our mistakes as we go along.
If we wait till we’re ready, we’ll wait forever.  

By the way, where can I find out exactly what the existing rules are?
There must be some way around them?
Are you sure they’re not just guidelines?
What are they going to do about it if we break them anyway?

Things could all work so much better for everyone if only more people would just wake up to what exactly is going on.
Yes I realize that new ideas can sometimes scare the horses – well so what?
Maybe a shock to the system is exactly what’s needed?
