Kellerman explains that the current state of leadership is no better understood or produced than it was 40 years ago and that followers are becoming more and more disenchanted by those who are leading them.

Leadership has been changing for some time, but not uniformly. It is not readily evident in education that hierarchy is a thing of the past. What this means is that we are educating children and youth in a model that theorists think is passe. No wonder we have a crisis. Practice and theory are not separate, they are fused.

Leadership is not just about having ability it is all about demonstrating that ability in practice i.e. standing up & accepting both responsibility & accountability

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Maximizing Business Value |

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.


None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

Why We Need More “Whys” in Strategic Planning

Why We Need More “Whys” in Strategic Planning | Maximizing Business Value |

It’s important to first recognize the reasons the question “why” often goes unasked and unanswered. If it’s such a powerful question, why is it so often replaced by “sounds good to me” or other such passive responses? This excellent article discusses why we don't ask this question more often during the process of developing new strategic plans and suggests ways to change our behaviour to deliver better strategy in future.
