What is leadership, really? There are a million and 11 different definitions. Entire sections of bookstores are dedicated to the topic, and we fly people all over the world every day discussing it. For the amount of money within the “leadership sector” — something like $44 billion annually — there’s not really a lot of, well, anything out there. Most of it is bullshit and posturing and generic, obvious advice re-defined as “thought leadership.” Not entirely sure how we got here.
I try to write about leadership in the most no-BS way possible. We’ve all lived through these offices where “good leadership” means “this guy drives revenue.” Why isn’t anyone talking about that? About the psychology of how the different parts of work and leadership fit together? That’s why I try to do. You can explore my leadership posts if you’d like.
