In the absence of a definition of leadership Here's mine from 20+ years ago that still works for my clients - Leadership is the art of inspiring people to bring everything remarkable that they are (that one-of-a-kind that each of is) to everything they do. Leadership must operate in harmony with management. I define management as the practice of making it simple for people to bring everything remarkable that they are to everything we do.
Great food for thought and action. I have a different view on digital.
Future success in business (indeed in everything) is about being more human. Think human to human and think of everything digital as tools that help. If digital is driving you the tail is wagging the dog.
For me the HBR article complicates where there is already much confusion. Transformation is an outcome of change. Successful change initiatives and programs focus on transition steps based on a shared view by those who changes will impact about what is and what can be and how moving from one to the other will be accomplished.
Leadership is the technology of human potential. We know that leadership needs new concepts to adapt to a network era. Without the right new leadership concepts, we won’t realise the human potential of the future of work.
