Human Leadership: What It Looks Like, And Why We Need It In The 21st Century

Over the years I have come to know and work with hundreds of executives.

Some of these executives have tried very hard to do everything right on paper, and yet, when in focus groups, their employees still don’t feel committed to them.

Some struggled with the experience of having to manage a relatively mid-level turnover for sustainable periods of time. Others failed in driving transformative change because they were acting more like a manager than a leader, despite the statutory rights handed to them.

It is a fact that many of these executives were actually promoted into people leadership roles because they were very successful at managing work at an individual level.

We need a different, a revised philosophy to leadership.
