Section: Paragraph comprehension

Because leadership is charged with bringing new ideas, methods, or solutions into use, innovation is inextricably connected with the process of being an effective leader. Innovation means change, and change requires leadership. Leaders must be the chief transformation officers in their organizations and learn everything there is to know about the change before it even takes place. Furthermore, they must learn how to deal with the emotions that result from the chaos and fear associated with change. According to the passage:

Leaders should resist making changes that subordinates are likely to resist.
Innovation and change are distinctly different processes.
It's not necessary for the leader to know everything about a change before it's implemented.
Change is often associated with panic and disorder.
