Comment: A little inspiration

Innovation is something many of us strive for but don’t always achieve. Lynn Eaton reveals more.

We don’t always have the time (or energy) to make the big changes in our work or life that we’d like to. Nor can we all be a James Dyson or Steve Jobs, dreaming up endless new inventions.
But there’s always time to make little adjustments to what we do – those slight changes in direction that make a small but significant difference.
Those of you feeling inspired to think differently should take a look at our coverage of leadership at this year’s student representative conference.
Whether you’re a student, support worker or a recent graduate, you can still be a leader. All you need to start is an inquiring mind, a willingness to listen and learn, a desire to try something new and an ability to learn the ‘soft’ skills of challenging established practice in a non-threatening way.
Leadership is about being creative too. We’ve been heartened by your positive responses to the new-look Frontline. Check out our two new columns: clinical update and in review.
We’ll keep up the creativity and innovation – let’s hope Frontline will inspire you to do the same!
