In this Thinkers50 Podcast, Stuart Crainer and Des Dearlove talk about leadership. Leadership has been talked about for thousands of years, but it wasn’t until the 1980s that the study of leadership exploded to become a heavy intellectual industry.
Most discussions about leadership make it more orderly than it really is, but throughout time, there are 7 irrevocable truths that Stu and Des have discovered:
- Leadership is not a science.
- Leadership is about followers.
- Leadership is a team game.
- Leadership is universal.
- Leadership can be learned and developed.
- Leadership is personal.
- Leadership is critical.
