The nature of leadership needs to change
This report from The Leadership Trust summarise the conversations over two days by renowned academics in the area of leadership research. The report proposes radical change to the way we think about leadership. The underlying theme was that business and society is changing rapidly and the practice of leadership is not changing quickly enough to reflect these shifts. In order for leadership to begin to address today’s critical problems, the idea of leadership must move away the hero figure who offers himself (usually a him) as a saviour, followed by inevitable disappointment and failure.
