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.
