What Makes a Good Leader?

What Makes a Good Leader? | Emergency Services | Scoop.it

When discussing business leadership, the distinction between good management and good leadership is often made. Managers are thought to be the budgeters, the organizers, the controllers — the ants, as one observer puts it — while leaders are the charismatic, big-picture visionaries, the ones who change the whole ant farm. But such a construction, those interviewed for this article agree, erroneously leads to a bimodal way of looking at something that should really be evaluated on two separate scales. "Everybody has got a little bit of each in them," says John Kotter, who admits he is sometimes guilty of using the dichotomy in an effort at simplification. "It's much better to think in terms of measuring people on a zero-to-ten scale for each quality."

Leadership comes in many shapes and sizes, and often from entirely unexpected quarters. In this excerpt from the HBS Bulletin, five HBS professors weigh in with their views on leadership in action.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, November 13, 2015 3:52 AM

A good leader is someone who has charisma and yet is approachable, he or she has ideas that are creative and distinct and yet is able to blend into the crowd. A good leader holds all the strings without  appearing to control things. The leader's greatest skills lie in his or her patience, and ability to take immediate decisions when required. The power of Gandhi's, Mandela's and Linoln's leadership lay in their simplicity and humbleness! They were leaders of men, and as such I would like to suggest that they were distinct entities as compared to leaders of ideas and leaders in sales and marketing!  Steve Jobs was very much a leader but the he was of a very different ilk!
