Great Leaders naturally strive to go to places others can't seem to find. They get there by challenging most of the things good leaders hold dear. This is an important article for those that want to be great leaders, but I would add one thing. Challenge how you define Top Talent. As you strive to go to places others have never been, be sure you aren't using criteria  others use to  define of top talent.

We need to constantly be questioning and innovating. What are the purposes of organizations? Right now, they still caught in the rut of 19th Century thinking with hierarchical structures run by people holding on for dear life.

Not sure I agree with this. It's not about how much leaders are doing, but what they are doing. Too many poor leaders are simply managers. As I once read somewhere many years ago, the difference between a leader and a manager is that a manager counts the number of seeds in an apple whilst a leader envisions how many apples they can get from a seed.

(From the article): In a TLNT post, Ron Thomas shared the story of a friend who received a written note of praise and encouragement from her boss and the impact:

 

“This executive who took the time to send the note showed what true leadership is about… The recipient of the note was so proud of her work. When I remarked about the type manager that she had, she said, ‘Oh, she sends them to me all the time when I do a great job on a project. When there is a concern, she also sends a note.’”

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 2, 2013 11:48 AM

The opening lines are about traditional versus collaborative leaders. I think there has always been collaborative leadership. Great leaders through history surrounded themselves not with sycophants but with those who came with questions. Community emerged, trust revealed, and greatness shone through. We need to believe we are not reinventing the wheel. It exists and needs to be dusted off.

DPG plc's curator insight, March 16, 2013 7:08 PM

love this - where do you sit?

Damarque's comment, April 16, 2013 11:05 AM
Ivon makes a good point. Is this not true however for most 'new' business and leaderships ideas. Even with (internet) technology as major disruptor in many industries, the fundamentals of value creation (management/leadership and innovation) have not changed. At the root of all value creation (which is the purpose of business) lies collaboration. The more unique the players in the collaboration game, the more value can be created, provided the game is played according to some key rules of engagement. Yes, collaboration as a powerful concept is not new. Facilitating productive collaboration is a whole different story. Perhaps that is where the challenges and opportunities for new leadership lie.
