And the question is .... what is Leadership? Ya i know on hearing this, some are probably yawning and thinking - what a boring question. But wait! If you think about it, most of us are doing it, maybe without the title but are influencing and "leading" in some ways. Well the reason of this question is due to attending a 2-day course on Leadership Essentials. The course has been stimulating, eye and mind opening and created a lot more reflective thinking and discussion than i thought it would do to me.
Numerous definitions of Leadership can be found in books, internet etc but the main themes are around "influencing" and "vison". I won't bored you here with the definitions and all the details learnt from the course but hopefully it makes you a bit curious and want to find out further. In the course we watched a short interview with Ricardo Semler and i was so inspired by him, his thinking. Read more about his unconventional leadership and corporate work practices, it's very inspiring.
