Harvard Business Review
MARCH 30, 2012
We're living with something of an irony right now regarding leadership. On the one hand, the topic has never been more studied and written about; my recent Google search for leadership research by academies and institutes returned some 375,000 hits. On the other hand, we are experiencing a dearth of leadership in society. Even more seem to have run out of ideas, or simply appear unable to craft the necessary consensus to lead. Leadership has never been easy.
