Setting the Agenda, Taking others with you, Doing it the right way #PUREthinking  

donhornsby's curator insight, October 14, 2013 10:21 AM

(From the article): At your company, you are the intergalactic traveler. Your company is the inside and the marketplace is the outside. It's your job as CEO to see opportunities others do not. Most of your organization (with the exception of sales people) tends to focus internally, and it's difficult for them to shift gears to focus externally. Therefore, you are to fill that void. This is not to say that you should not engage and intently listen to your internal employees. This simply means you ultimately are the one who must make the decisions.

Leaders in search of followership | Mannaz.com

Leaders in search of followership | Mannaz.com | Leadership Online | Scoop.it

In a conversation with Barbara Kellerman journalist Kenneth Mikkelsen explores why leadership is so hard to exercise today. This is a must read for everone interested in leadership and management trends. The article is featured in Mannaz' International Newsletter. 

 

The interview with Barbara Kellerman relates to her latest book: "The End of Leadership."

 

Barbara raises the important question: Why has the leadership industry, for all its apparent successes, failed on so many levels? Why do incompetence and intemperance continue rampant? Why are ethics so elusive? Why is teaching leading full of “flaws”? Why has it proved so hard to build a body of knowledge? Why are our leaders so widely disdained—and why is our trust in leaders of every stripe at a leaden low?

 

Barbara has strong opinions about the leadership industry. She doesn't believe that becomming a leader is a quick fix that can be learned from a seven-step guide written by former CEOs or short and expensive leadership courses.

 

For futher information:
