Leadership
Leadership is both a research area and a practical skill encompassing the ability of an individual or organization to "lead" or guide other individuals, teams, or entire organizations. Specialist literature debates various viewpoints, contrasting Eastern and Western approaches to leadership, and also (within the West) United States versus European approaches. U.S. academic environments define leadership as "a process of social influence in which a person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task". Leadership seen from a European and non-academic perspective encompasses a view of a leader who can be moved not only by communitarian goals but also by the search for personal power.
Leadership
With the changes in technological complexity, especially in information technology, the leadership task has changed. Leadership in a networked organization is a fundamentally different thing from leadership in a traditional hierarchy.
Edgar H. Schein (2011), Organizational Culture and Leadership, p. 12-13
Leadership
When we think we lead, we are most led
Lord Byron, The Two Foscari (1821)
Leadership
What was leadership, after all, but the blind choice of one route over another and the confident pretence that the decision was based on reason.
Robert Harris, in Pompeii (2003)
