While the world depends on innovators to create new ideas, it also depends on leaders to advance the ideas of others. Steve Jobs was a perfect example. He listened to ideas, worked with countless idea-makers, and could spot a brilliant idea in an instant. Jobs, himself, did not create ideas; he championed them. Yet everyone remembers Steve Jobs as an innovator.

Thomas Edison was an innovator himself, but he made a living out of building and promoting the ideas of others.

Being the champion of ideas is in many ways more important than being the creator of ideas. Countless brilliant ideas die for lack of a champion.
